At Tuesday's service for 6-year-old Aaliyah Griffin, a large floral arrangment was placed next to her coffin spelling out her nickname, "Pooka."

Services will be held later this week for the two other girls, 7-year-old Gina Marie Rosario and 11-month-old Remedy Smith, and for Remedy's mother, 22-year-old LaToya Smith.

Police say the driver of the car, 18-year-old Donta Cradock, remains hospitalized, charged with murder, vehicular homicide, and several other offenses. His stepbrother, 20-year-old Ivan Rodriguez, is also charged with murder.

Police say Rodriguez got out of the car, stole a motorcycle at gunpoint and drove off while Cradock fled in the auto.
