KATY, TX - Friends and family of Taylor and Madison Sheats said their final goodbyes in a private service in Katy. The sisters were fatally shot last week by their own mother, Christy Sheats, with a .38 caliber handgun.

Snippets from the 911 calls released from last Friday are just heart-breaking.

Madison Sheats: 'I`m sorry....no...please don`t shoot us (scream).'

Jason Sheats: 'I promise you, whatever you want.'

Neighbor: 'I can hear bullets and she`s laying down on the floor now.'

Jason Sheats, the father, is the only one to survive the incident which has captivated the entire nation. Reportedly, the Sheats family was having marital problems and headed toward divorce. Jason admitted his wife was on numerous prescription medicines, drank heavily and even tried to commit suicide in the past.

The Sheats sisters will be finally laid to rest in Alabama, nowhere near their mother's tomb.
