Friends and family said their final goodbyes to two local nurses killed when their limo caught fire on a Bay Area bridge.
A bride-to-be was one of five women who died in the tragic accident.
Friends and family gathered at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Fresno on Tuesday, a week and a half after the tragedy.
Loved ones say the women were extraordinary and dedicated their lives to helping others.
Balloons were released at the funeral of Neriza Fojas and Michelle Estrera, the two nurses from Fresno that were killed when their party limo burst into flames on the San Mateo bridge.
They were on their way to celebrate Neriza's recent wedding with seven more friends.
Neriza's husband, who was set to have a second wedding in the Philippines next month, carried out his wife's urn.
Michelle's husband was right there by his side, consoling one another as the entire Philippine community grieves.
On Monday, the Philippine Nurses Association of Central California held a mass for the women the day before, praying that all five women who perished will forever be remembered.
Legislation was just introduced in Sacramento that would require most limos in California to have accessible fire extinguishers.
