Calling their deaths “an abomination,” a priest memorialized a California mother and young son killed by a family friend, who also abducted the woman’s 16-year-old daughter.

Saturday’s service for Christina Anderson and 8-year-old Ethan Anderson at the Guardian Angels Roman Catholic Church in Santee, Calif., was open to the public.

“For the death of Tina and Ethan there are no easy words,” the Rev. Kevin Casey told the memorial gathering, according to the Los Angeles Times. “We are touched by this evil and we can never be the same again.”

The pair was found at the home of James Lee DiMaggio, who set it ablaze earlier this month and then took off with Hannah Anderson.

DiMaggio was killed by FBI agents Aug. 10 in the Idaho wilderness, ending a six-day search that spanned much of the western United States and parts of Canada and Mexico.

Authorities have declined to discuss a possible motive in the deaths and haven’t addressed other details of the case, including how Hannah was treated by DiMaggio during the ordeal.

“We struggle with deaths like this because they are not right,” Casey said. “They are an abomination.”

Investigators have said DiMaggio set fire to his home using a timer, giving him a 20-hour jump on law enforcement.

DiMaggio’s family has requested paternity tests to determine if the suspect fathered the children.

Hannah’s father, Brett Anderson, gave his DNA to investigators to confirm Ethan’s identity.

DiMaggio named Hannah’s grandmother, Bernice Anderson, as the sole beneficiary of his employer-issued life insurance policy, making her eligible to receive $112,000.

Brett Anderson Quits Job to Stay In ‘Safe and Familiar’ San Diego with Daughter Hannah

08/27/2013 at 08:30 PM EDT

Brett Anderson has changed his plans to move to Nashville for work in order to provide stability for his daughter Hannah, who was rescued just over two weeks ago from kidnapping and murder suspect James Lee DiMaggio.

“I’d hoped that Hannah would be able to return to Nashville with me, but I agreed that it was important not to uproot her at this time from everyone and everything she knows and finds to be comfortable, safe and familiar,” Anderson tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.

“There is no way I will give guardianship of my daughter to anybody, she needs her father and I need my daughter.”

“As a result, I called my company today and informed them of my decision to move back to San Diego, and my resignation,” continues Anderson. “Hannah and I will be moving into a home together, and she is as excited as I am to be a family and continue our healing together.”

DiMaggio is suspected of killing Hannah’s mother, Christina Anderson, and her 8-year-old brother Ethan, whose bodies were found Aug. 4 in DiMaggio’s burning house in California near the Mexico border, and abducting Hannah before her safe recovery Aug. 10.

Investigators have said DiMaggio set fire to his home using a timer, giving him a 20-hour jump on law enforcement.

Authorities have declined to discuss a possible motive in the deaths and haven’t addressed other details of the case, including how Hannah was treated by DiMaggio during the ordeal.
