Grandmother of Newtown Victim: He was an Angel

Dylan Hockley loved garlic bread and video games.

The massacre in Newtown, Conn., has a local connection.

Dylan Hockley was one of the victims killed in the unspeakable horror that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School this past week.

His grandmother, Theresa Moretti, of Cranston, told the Boston Herald that the boy loved garlic bread, video games, watching movies on his Nintendo and playing on the trampoline.

"Dylan had dimples and blue eyes," Moretti told the Herald. "He had the most mischievous little grin. To know him was to love him."

Moretti said she is heartbroken and devastated to lose her grandson and to know that her daughter has to deal with the loss.

"He was an angel," she said. "And I think that's now why he's in heaven."
