Services were held this week for victims of the apparent triple murder-suicide in Fontana on Dec. 30.
Silvia Miranda, 34, and her two children, Ramon Miranda Jr., 12, and Rayna Miranda, 10, were shot to death by 38-year-old Ramon Miranda, who then killed himself, according to police.
The viewing for the mother and two children took place on Jan. 7 and services were on Jan. 8 in Los Angeles.
The triple murder-suicide was one of the deadliest incidents in Fontana's recent history.
The victims of the tragedy were found inside their house in the 7300 block of Palmetto Avenue.  Officials from the San Bernardino County Coroner's Division confirmed the deaths at 8:38 p.m.
No motive has yet been determined for the slayings, according to authorities.
