Members of Boy Scout troop 87 served as pallbearers at the funeral in Franklin's Williamson Memorial.
One of the victims, Jonathan Culpepper was a member of that troop.
A week ago Sunday he was found stabbed to death inside his home along with his mother Michelle Pinkowski and grandmother Marylea Jordan.
Authorities charged their neighbor Craig Garber in the crime.
At the time he was suffering from apparent self inflicted stab wounds and had to be taken to the hospital.
Police finally moved him to jail Monday.
Jonathan's Big Brother Adam Faragalli is among those who still can't believe something like this could happen in Bellevue.
"He wanted to be a graphic designer or do game design. He was really passionate about that," said Faragalli.
Adding to the heartache is Jonathan's 9 year old sister.
She made it out of the house and ran for help during the murder.
"She seemed in good spirits at visitation yesterday. She has friends and family that love her," said family friend Jim Atwell.
Atwell and fellow family friend Avis Sublette say the girl sat next to her uncle during the funeral.
He's now caring for her as she deals with a tragedy that took her family.
"She hasn't realized yet what's happening to her and you can tell it. We know the child she worshipped her grandmother," said Sublette.

Miss. chooses new firm to run Woodville prison
May 18, 2013 20:50 GMT
WOODVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi officials have picked a new company to run the Wilkinson County Correctional Facility.
Utah-based Management and Training Corp. announced Friday that the Mississippi Department of Corrections has chosen it to run the 1,000-bed prison starting July 1, the Natchez Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/10MvOGv).
Corrections Corporation of America, based in Nashville, Tenn., had run the prison since 1998. MTC says it will keep "the vast majority" of employees.
MTC will get a five-year contract to run the prison with two one-year options. Last year, officials chose MTC to take over East Mississippi Correctional Facility, the Walnut Grove Correctional Facility and the Marshall County Correctional Facility from the GEO Group. MTC won 10-year contracts for each.
CCA still runs the Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility and the Adams County Correctional Center in Mississippi.
