Jessica Rekos had a love for horses. On May 4, less than a week before what would have been her eighth birthday, the community celebrated the way she might have wanted to herself. The Pony Rides For Jessica Team and King’s Bridge Farm joined forces and held the second annual fundraiser, Pony Rides For A Purpose, in honor of Jessica, a riding student at King’s Bridge who was killed on 12/14.

To the Editor:
My husband and I visit our daughter’s grave every day at St. Rose Cemetery. We have gone every day for the past 163 days since she was taken from us at Sandy Hook School.
