MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Members of a small Brazilian church outside Atlanta are trying to find ways to pay for bringing the bodies of members killed in a deadly Florida interstate pileup back to Georgia and then, hopefully, on to their native country to bury them.

The congregation is mourning the death of a pastor, his wife, their daughter and two others in the horrific crash that killed 11 people.

Church members are now faced with the financial burdens of transporting the bodies and paying for funerals. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/yKczEI) that an account has been established at the Bank of America, where donations are being accepted.

Pastor Jose Carmo Jr.; his wife, Adrianna; and their daughter, Leticia, died in the Sunday crash. Also killed were Jose Carmo's brother, Edson, and his brother's girlfriend, Rose.
