Pallbearers released doves at the funeral of two sisters, Marion and Anna Lieffrig-Petard, in Blois, central France on Monday. The two sisters were killed while having dinner in a sidewalk cafe, in the attacks in Paris on November 13, the deadliest since WWII.

Marion Lieffrig-Petard, 30, loved to study music, explore other cultures and spend time with her 24-year-old sister Anna. She was a student at Paris-Sorbonne University studying for a master's degree in music. But her wanderlust had taken her to studies in Barcelona, Spain. She hoped to do the second year of her degree in Palermo, Italy, according to a Paris-Sorbonne news release.
