INDIANAPOLIS – An Indiana family that lost nine relatives when a tourist boat sank on a Missouri lake is saying goodbye to four of those loved ones.

Friday's funeral services at Grace Apostolic Church in Indianapolis will honor the husband and three children of Tia Coleman.

The services for 40-year-old Glenn Coleman, 9-year-old Reece, 7-year-old Evan and 1-year-old Arya come eight days after a duck boat capsized and sank during a storm in Branson, killing 17 people.

Rachel Taylor began the service, telling a story of when Tia Coleman was younger, she would dance for God. And that dance prepared her for the troubling times ahead.


After Taylor, Suffragan Bishop Kevin Harrison, Prosecutor Terry Curry and Congressman Andre Carson all spoke about

Tia Coleman and a nephew were the only survivors among 11 Coleman family members who boarded the boat on July 19.
