The young girl was one of 22 killed after a suicide bomber attacked concertgoers leaving Grande’s show. More than 250 were injured, including Roussos’ mother. Rousso’s father Andrew Roussos told the BBC that Lisa Roussos, Saffie’s mom, woke up from a coma and knew that her daughter was dead without having to be told.

“She just looked at me and said, ‘She’s gone, isn’t she?’ I just looked at her and said, ‘Yeah.’ She goes ‘I knew.’”

Chris Upton, the headteacher at the Tarleton Community Primary School where the girl studied, remembered her as “simply a beautiful little girl in every aspect of the word.” He told PEOPLE that she was loved by everyone.
