EUREKA, Calif. (AP) _ A mother and daughter slain during a trip to Yosemite National Park were remembered in this rainy coastal town with both laughter and sobs.

Hundreds of people crowded into Sacred Heart Church on Sunday, spilling outside where television monitors broadcast the 2 1/2-hour-long memorial service for Carole Sund and her 15-year-old daughter Julie.

The two were killed, along with 16-year-old Argentine exchange student Silvina Pelosso, in case that has continued to baffle investigators.

Flanked at the altar by a pastel portrait of his daughter and granddaughter, flowers from Mrs. Sund's garden and Julie's purple and silver cheerleading pom-poms, Francis Carrington said he would let the authorities focus on circumstances of their deaths.

``We won't let hate or revenge or despair enter our minds,'' he said. ``I think we'll look to the future as Carole and Julie would want us.''

Jens Sund sat between his three adopted children as his wife and daughter were remembered in pictures, poems, prayers and songs.

``This is where we move on,'' he said.

Mrs. Sund, 42, was remembered as a devoted mother, competent businesswoman and tireless volunteer for neglected children.

Julie was recalled as an accomplished musician and a fiercely loyal friend with a ``smile that lasted all day long.''

The trio were last seen alive Feb. 15, starting a massive search. Last month, Mrs. Sund's and Silvina's bodies were found in the trunk of their burned rental car. Julie's body was found a week later.

One of the last people to speak Sunday was 13-year-old Gina Sund, who left the crowd weeping.

``Although having the two most important people in my life taken away from me is the hardest thing I will ever have to overcome, don't look at me with frowns and sadness,'' she said, fighting back tears.

``Just think of my mother laughing in a chair, and her smile and happiness.''
