INDIANAPOLIS, Ind – Six caskets were lined up inside the sanctuary at New Wineskin Ministries as people said their goodbyes.

All six members of the Guerra family were killed after their home caught fire on February 22nd. Nearly two weeks later they were laid to rest. The fire claimed the lives of Leo Guerra, his wife Brandy and their kids; Miranda, Esteban, Blanquita and Fuentez.

“So today our hearts are torn, our hearts are heavy,” said Pastor AJ Corrales.

There were few dry eyes inside the church filled with family members, friends and even complete strangers. Several of the kids’ school teachers also attended.

“My prayer for everyone is that they will have peace and comfort in their hearts that only God can give them because humanly possible, I mean there’s no explanation humanly possible that we can give them to comfort them,” said Corrales.

Family members wanted to thank everyone for all their support and prayers. Donations helped pay for the funeral and burial at New Crown Cemetery.

Relatives are also finding comfort knowing Brandy, Miranda and Esteban donated their organs and tissue so others might live. Miranda’s heart is now keeping a 17-year-old girl alive and Fuentez heart is beating inside a 4-year-old child.
