Florida school massacre: First victims of school shootings laid to rest

Family of Scott Beigel the 35 year-old geography

The Long Island native who died saving students in Florida last week gave his fiancée specific instructions about his funeral - should he ever die in a school shooting, the weeping woman said Sunday.

"Promise me, if this ever happens to me, you'll tell them the truth".

One of Beigel's students, Kelsey Friend, told CNN that he saved her life. She said that while they watched the news about another school shooting, Scott told her what to do if he were to be killed in a shooting at work. "Now I can tell the truth".

In a letter she wrote back to him after his death, she called him "an incredible man" and added: "Everyone you have touched will never be the same. You are my first love and soul mate".

The funeral of Alex Schachter, 14, was to have been held at a chapel but...

As the shots rang out, Beigel unlocked a door to a classroom to let students hide inside as a gunman stalked the halls.

"Ok, Scott. I did what you asked", she then said. As he was re-locking it so the students could stay safe, he was shot and killed.

Linda Schulman said that a day before the shooting, she received a letter Beigel wrote her that parodied ones he sent her from camp as a kid.

"Mr. Beigel was my hero and he still will forever be my hero". Beigel had served as a youth counselor at Camp Starlight in Pennsylvania and had volunteered in South Africa. "I am alive today because of him".

"I don't want Scott's memory to be the horrific moment on that afternoon", Beigel's father said at the funeral, according to Newsday.
