(CBS) – Dozens gathered in Round Lake on Monday to say goodbye to a father and daughter killed in a Florida plane crash.

Fifty-three-year-old Jeffrey Bronken, who was piloting the plane, died in the March 22 crash near Clearwater, Fla. His daughter, 15-year-old Katie Bronken, died a few days later.

Investigators say the plane hit power lines before crashing nose-first into a median on a six-lane street.

Family and friends say it’s been a devastating week.
