Charlotte dreamed of being an animal doctor when she grew up.
The 6-year-old “never met an animal she didn’t love,” her obituary said.
The lively first-grader also enjoyed practicing Taekwondo with her brother, Guy, and her father.
Charlotte’s parents, Joann and Joel, had lived in Newtown for four or five years, Joann’s brother John Hagen, of Nisswa, Minn., told Newsday.
“She was going to go some places in this world,” Hagen told the newspaper. “This little girl could light up the room for anyone.”
