A funeral has been held for teen sisters who were shot by their retired police officer father last weekend before he turned the gun on himself.

A great-uncle of Alissa and Deanna Hochman (dee-AN'-uh HAHK'-muhn) said Friday outside their funeral in Harrison that they "were touched by God."

Emil Giliotti added that the girls had great smiles and didn't deserve what happened to them.

The Journal News (http://lohud.us/1zMEAG0 ) reports that bells chimed as the teens' mother and older sister arrived in a motorcade led by an ambulance. Firefighters and other first responders crowded the street.

Eighteen-year-old Alissa volunteered with the Harrison ambulance corps. She was a high school senior.

Thirteen-year-old Deanna attended the Windward School in White Plains.

It's unclear when or where their father, Glen Hochman, will be buried.
