Funerals for four family members killed in an apartment fire were held on Saturday.

Patrick Gagnon, his wife Karine Desrochers-Gauthier, and two of their children, Felix, 2, and Laurie, 4, died two days before Christmas last year.

The only surviving family member is Mathis, 8. He was hospitalized for a number of days before moving in with his aunt and uncle, with whom he'll now be living.

The tragedy touched many hearts in the small community of Les Coteaux, Que. Since the fire, there have been a number of fundraisers in aid of Mathis.
