"Those four little kids that are my kids' ages, I don't know how they're going to do Christmas from now on. That's going to be in their heads from now on for the rest of their lives," Wiegman said.
Wiegman said Ramsey lived in the home and that she saw Josephs there often.
"He was putting up Christmas lights a few weeks ago and things like that," Wiegman recalled.
Investigators with Lakeland Police haven't released a possible motive for the shootings.
The disturbing news has led people in the community to step up and donate to the children.
William Dunn, founder of Take a Kid Fishing, which serves foster kids and fatherless children, said he wants to donate $500 to pay for the children to go to Disney.
"It's time to come together and show love and support and show that people out in this community really care," Dunn said.
A spokesperson with the Lakeland Police Department said the last they knew, all four children who were in the home, who are all younger than 10 years old, were with family.
