Slain Berry sisters remembered in public funeral service in Victoria”

The service is being held at Victoria's downtown Christ Church Cathedral. "I hope that as the months and years go by when people think of Chloe and Aubrey, they think of joy".

Two small girls who were found dead in their father's Oak Bay B.C., apartment Christmas Day were remembered Friday as full of joy and love as family and friends gathered for a public funeral service.

"In times of such enormous and overwhelming grief, no words can make sense of this tragic loss of life and its impact on a family, a community and a city", says the Very Reverend Ansley Tucker of Christ Church Cathedral.

Lees said Cotton has responded to her loss with "remarkable courage and grace and dignity in this circumstance which is sort of beyond comprehension for most of us".

The service begins at 11 Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria with a reception to follow in the school hall.

While Chloe attended Willows elementary for Kindergarten, she loved her new school Lees says.

Andrew Berry, the girls' father, faces two charges of second-degree murder.

"I think the show of support from the community has been outstanding but I also think it's a reflection of Sarah and Aubrey and Chloe", added Hudson. "That includes a lot of pictures of the girls and some videos", Lees said. "As a friend, I feel really proud of her and I think today, all of our friends and family and people we don't know, it really helps to see what an outpouring of support that she has".

"My most favourite memories of them are a series of them really, where we spent time at the beach", Lees told the Oak Bay News.

Police were called December 25 when the girls weren't returned to their mother as planned according to a custody arrangement.
