OGDEN, Utah (AP) Family members who brought Emilie Parker back to Utah for her burial have remembered the 6-year-old killed in the Connecticut school shooting as a ``picture of perfection'' at a memorial Thursday in Ogden.

Emilie's parents, Robbie and Alissa Parker, have roots in the town about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City, and hundreds of people attended the service at Ben Lomond High School.

Emilie Parker's short life was celebrated Thursday in a slide show and brief remarks from family members. They recalled a girl full of love, compassion, charity and enthusiasm. Her father said she loved to pick flowers ``like a goat.''

The parents have asked for privacy at a funeral set for Saturday. Emilie Parker will be laid to rest in a favorite white dress with an American Girl doll at a gravesite next to her maternal grandfather, who died Sept. 29.
