CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Two of the people who died at a Clarksville charity event last weekend were laid to rest Thursday.

Services for Timothy Stone were held at 10 a.m., while the funeral for James Wall was held at 1 p.m.

Hundreds of people were outside the McReynolds, Nave & Larson Funeral Home on Thursday, waving signs in support of the Bikers Who Care organization.

"They were all very loved, and this community loves them for what they did for us. They will be crazy missed," said Clarksville resident B.J. Sellers.

 Through Facebook, texts and word of mouth, rumors circulated that the controversial Westboro Baptist Church from Kansas planned to protest the funeral.

"I heard about Westboro coming out and picketing, and I decided to show up.  Most people care about these Bikers Who Care," said Clarksville resident Ray Johnson.

However, members of the Westboro church did not show up, but instead hundreds of supporters lined the street.

3 more funerals this weekend

Services for Jonathan and Kathryn Over, as well as Allison Bagwell, are planned for this weekend.

Investigators haven't said how the group died inside a camper during a biker gathering. However, firefighters said they found dangerously high levels of carbon monoxide. 

The Federal Consumer Product Safety Commission is involved in the investigation.

The five victims leave behind 12 children.  A fund has been established at a local Planters bank.
