Plaza Towers students reunite with teachers

The first funeral was held Thursday morning for the youngest victims of Monday's deadly tornado.

Nine-year-old Antonia Candelaria was remembered as a "beautiful young lady" who had the "sweetest, most gentle and loving spirit."

She was one of seven children who died at the Plaza Towers Elementary School.
