Tears for young shooting victims.
Hundreds of people from the Nickel Mines Amish community stood near a huge mound of earth for the brief graveside services.
The series of three funeral processions took the coffins past the home of Charles Roberts who attacked the girls' one-room schoolhouse on Monday.
Benjamin Nieto, 57, watched the procession and said: "They were just little people. They never got a chance to do anything."
Pennsylvania state troopers on horseback and a funeral director's black car with flashing yellow lights cleared the way for more than 30 buggies in the funeral procession.
Black carriages carried the hand-sawn wooden coffins of seven-year-old Naomi Rose Ebersol, 13-year-old Marina Fisher, and sisters Mary Liz Miller, eight, and Lena Miller, seven. The funeral for the fifth girl, Anna Mae Stoltzfus, 12, is scheduled for today.
The girls, in white dresses made by their families, were laid to rest in graves in a small burial ground bordered by cornfields and a white rail fence.
The killer's widow was invited to one of the funerals, according to a family member, although it was not known if she attended.
Daniel Esh, an Amish artist and woodworker whose three grandnephews were at the school, said there was also talk among the Amish community of tearing down the schoolhouse.
