TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Today marks one year since the Jan. 8 shooting.  On this day, the six people who died in that attack are not far from our thoughts. We remember them not just for how they died but for who they were.

At just nine years old Christina-Taylor Green was full and ambition. She had just been elected to her school's student council. She was the only girl on her baseball team. She wanted to go to Penn State to be a politician. She told her parents she wanted to help people.

Gabe Zimmerman, 30 years old, was Gabby's director of community outreach.  He worked tirelessly for everyone who needed it.  He wrote down each name of every person who asked.  He was loved deeply among his family and friends, one of them saying he was he was "as close to a purely good human being as I have ever known." He loved sports, hiking and fiancée. 

Arizona District Court Judge John Roll served the legal system for 40 years.  He passed one of the toughest immigration laws in the country.  The husband and father of three sons, he was described as the hardest working judge in the 9th circuit.

Dorothy "Dot" Morris was a retired secretary and homemaker she loved traveling with her husband who was her high school sweetheart of 50 years. TH tried to save her life when the gunfire rang out that day, but couldn't. Dot leaves George behind and their two daughters.

Dorwan Stoddard tried to protect his wife as well. But he died while trying to save her. Dorwin was a retired volunteer at the Mountain Avenue Church of Christ. Friends of the Stoddards say the couple was the life blood of their congregation and that Dorwin always gave himself for others and never asked for anything in return.

Phyllis Schneck loved to sew and bake for people. Her pastor said she once baked 120 dozen Christmas cookies and would do it again as soon as they were gone.  He said the grandmother and mother of three was an example of what everyone can do with the material they are given in life. 

All of their lives examples of how life is so precious.
