Funeral services have been held for two young girls killed by their father at Fort Hood just hours before their mother returned from a deployment in Afghanistan.

Hundreds attended the service in Killeen for 9-year-old Leila Ezzeddine and 4-year-old Zeinab Ezzeddine. The Killeen Daily Herald reports pink flowers covered a single casket carrying the bodies of the girls.

Military authorities say 43-year-old Rouhad Ahamd Ezzeddine killed his daughters Jan. 21 before taking his own life. Authorities have not revealed how the three died.

The bodies were found in a Fort Hood home assigned to the children's mother, 33-year-old Private 1st Class Carla Santisteban.

Santisteban's brother, Jose Santisteban, eulogized his nieces Monday by saying they were angels who "came to this world to put a smile on my sister, to put a smile on me."
