Visitation today, funeral tomorrow for drowned siblings


St. Louis, MO – There will be a visitation this afternoon (Thursday) for the four siblings who drowned in the Meramec River this past weekend.

Edris Moore's four children were on a picnic with the St. Louis Dream Center, an inter-denominational church on the city's north side that was founded by the Joyce Meyer Ministries. That's where the visitation will be from 4:00-8:00 p.m.

The four children's funeral will be tomorrow (Friday) at 11:00 a.m.

Services for a fifth youngster who died in the accident, Deandre Sherman, 16, will be next week.

Investigators say the drownings were accidental and the children were swept away because they could not swim. They expect no charges to be filed.
