It is going to be an emotional afternoon in Calgary.

A memorial service will be held for five-year-old Taliyah Marsman and her mother, 34-year-old Sara Baillie.

The service will take place at the Centre Street Church in the northeast at 2 p.m.

The remains of Sara and Taliyah will be displayed in urns alongside flowers in what will be a packed worship centre.

Family members are asking for privacy during this understandably difficult time; however they will make a brief statement before the service begins.

Media have also been invited to stay and 660 NEWS will have a reporter there.

The family has asked anyone wanting to make a donation to send it to the City of Calgary Amber Alert.

In living memory of Sara and Taliyah, a tree will also be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park.

There continues to be a huge outpouring of support for the family. More than 200 people attended a vigil Sunday.
