(CNN) – Four members of a family who died during the building collapse in Miami were buried this week, including two sisters who were buried in the same coffin.
Lucia Guara, 11, and her sister Emma Guara, 4, are among the youngest victims found in the rubble of Champlain Towers South. The sisters’ bodies were recovered and identified on June 30, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.
The bodies of his parents, Marcus Guara and Anaely Rodriguez, were also recovered.
The family’s priest, Father Juan Sosa, said funeral services were held earlier this week at the San José Catholic Church. The decision to bury the girls in a single white coffin belonged to the family, the priest explained. Pink and purple ribbons were placed on the coffin, show a WSVN video, CNN affiliate.
The church, which is located in Miami Beach a few blocks from the collapse site, was packed with family and friends of the parents and their daughters. There were many moving moments, Sosa said. One of the things he vividly remembers is the girls’ friends crying and hugging their parents.
“The family members clung to each other, and that’s good because they were able to hug and support each other,” Sosa said.
Sosa explained that up to a dozen members of his congregation are missing. At least four of them you know very well. Two weeks after the collapse, Sosa said she is still in shock. He has not had time to grieve.
“Let us appreciate the quality of life more than the quantity,” said the priest. “More than what we have, it is who we are as a family,” he added.
