Family, friends and community members gathered at Christ Church Cathedral on Friday to remember the two young sisters who were killed in Oak Bay on Christmas Day.

WATCH: Tess van Straaten was at the public funeral for Chloe and Aubrey Berry and talks about how the girls are being remembered. 

The funeral service for six-year-old Chloe Berry and four-year-old Aubrey Berry started at 11 a.m.

Before the service, pink polka dot ribbons are being handed out to mourners in memory of the two girls.

Family friend Trisha Lees says she would like the girls to be remembered with great joy, because the girls were joyful and brought that feeling to others.

Donations in memory of the girls can be made to the Chloe and Aubrey Berry Scholarship Fund through the Victoria Foundation or to the Mary Manning Centre.

The girls were found dead in an Oak Bay Apartment December 25, along with their father Andrew Berry with self-inflicted wounds.

Forty-three-year-old Berry is charged with two counts of second-degree murder and will be back in court on Feb. 1.
