Funeral held for Tempe Town Lake drowning victims

A final goodbye was held for a mother and her three children; Danika Baxter and her three children were laid to rest as her family, friends, and the community said goodbye.
At the funeral, there were tears, hugs, and sadness, but at the service there were also cheers, praise, and thanks.
"We just truly thank God for you being out here today, and you just coming out here from your jobs and different places. These are my cousins, and I wanna tell you all, we truly appreciate the prayers and you coming out, we truly appreciate you for the calls and the donations," said a family member.
Baxter and her children were killed when the children's father drove their SUV into Tempe Town Lake; police say he did it on purpose. While it was hard to say goodbye for most, others were able to share happy memories of the family.
"Three little angels only here for a while, when we think of them in the future we will always smile, Danika and the babies left us all behind, for a journey to heaven which is so divine," said another speaker.
After the services the family was laid to rest at Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery in Phoenix.
