"So we have to forgive and we have to go on and I'm sure that for years, the memory of those young folks will be kept alive."
The death toll grew overnight on Tuesday from the shootings at an Amish schoolhouse in the US state of Pennsylvania.
Two more children died from their wounds after being shot, raising the number of dead to five girls plus the gunman who was apparently spurred on to kill by a two-decade-old grudge.
A hospital spokesman said a nine-year-old girl who had been taken to Christiana Hospital in Delaware died at about 0100 (0500GMT).
Sean Young, the Penn State Hershey Medical Centre spokesman also confirmed that a seven-year-old patient was taken off life support at approximately 0430 (0830GMT).
Young said the girl's parents were with her when she was taken off the life support machine.
Young also said a six-year-old patient remained in critical condition in the paediatric intensive care unit at Penn State Hershey Medical Centre and a 13-year-old patient remained in serious condition in the intermediate care unit.
A Pennsylvania State police spokesperson said the two girls who died in the two hospitals early on Tuesday had suffered severe injuries but said others who were wounded were doing well.
Five children remained hospitalised after Monday's school shooting, in a tranquil farming area of Lancaster County, the third in less than a week in the US.
Three of them are girls, aged eight, ten and twelve, who were flown to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where they were in critical condition on Tuesday after hours of surgery.
Authorities said the gunman, Charles Carl Roberts IV, shot himself as police stormed the schoolhouse, which was located on a patch of grass amid pastures and farm fields.
Roberts, apparently spurred by a grudge two decades old, wrote for his wife what authorities have described as suicide notes.
He took three guns and ammunition and went to the West Nickel Mines Amish School ready for an extended siege.
Police said he had with him a stun gun, two knives, a pile of wood and a bag with 600 rounds of ammunition.
Police said he also had a change of clothing, toilet paper, bolts and hardware and rolls of clear tape.
Jeffrey B. Miller, the State Police Commissioner told reporters at the scene on Tuesday that investigators were looking into other events in Roberts' background.
"We're putting the pieces together. We're trying our best to make sense of something you really can't make sense of," Miller said.
Roberts, a 32-year-old father of three from the nearby town of Bart, had a daughter who died as an infant.
Miller said Roberts was not Amish, did not appear to be targeting the Amish and apparently chose the school because he was bent on killing young girls as a way of acting out in revenge for something that happened 20 years ago.
"Obviously, this was a deeply troubled man and there were things that were not visible on the surface that were going on," Miller said.
Neighbours and others said they saw no indications of trouble like this brewing.
Jack Meyer, an Amish neighbour of the West Nickel Mines Amish School said his community was trying to heal and forgive as well as keep the memory of the young victims alive.
