Friends and family said their final good-bye on Wednesday to two Burwell residents, a father daughter found dead last week in their home.

The memorial for 31-year-old Christopher and 2-year-old Aimee Melling was held at the Gibbon American Legion.

Currently their deaths are ruled a murder-suicide by the Garfield County Attorney, with Christopher allegedly shooting his daughter Aimee, then turning the gun on himself.

However Christopher's brother Thomas told News 5 on Sunday that he doesn't agree with that conclusion.

A memorial for Aimee was held this past Sunday, on the same day she would have celebrated her third birthday.
