DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - The family of two children found floating in a Delray Beach canal are preparing to say their final goodbyes.
A memorial service was held on Friday for 6-year-old Ju'tyra Allen and her brother 10 year-old Jermaine McNeil.
The service took place at St. John's Missionary Baptist Church in Boynton Beach.
Last week, 6-year-old Ju'tyra Allen was found in a duffel bag floating in a canal. Her brother Jermain was found a short time later in a suitcase in the same canal.
For a while, curiosity loomed as to the mother's whereabouts.
It was later discovered that the mother, Felicia Brown, had been found in a landfill last summer.
The funeral for the two children and their mother will be held Saturday, March 12th at 2 p.m. at the St. John's Missionary Baptist Church.
The children will be buried with their mother at the Delray Cemetery.
Detectives have not released the cause of deaths for either child, and no one has been charged.
