SURFSIDE, Fla. (AP) — The tiny bodies of two young victims of the Florida condo building collapse are being buried in the same white casket. Lucia and Emma Guar were laid to rest Tuesday alongside their parents, Marcus and Anaely Guara.

The three were among at least 36 people killed in the collapse of the Champlain Towers South building nearly two weeks ago.

Family members attending the service at St. Joseph's Catholic church say “Lulu bear” loved watching “Jeopardy” with her dad, dancing and doing yoga with her mother.

Her baby sister, Emma, was the princess of the family and enjoyed her dad’s piggyback rides.
