Posted by Adam

MINDY McCready‘s funeral has taken place in Florida.

The 37-year-old was laid to rest at Crossroads Baptist Church in her hometown of Ft. Myers on Tuesday .

400 mourners, including her devastated family, looked on as a white hearse, escorted by two police cars, brought the singer’s wooden casket and dozens of white roses to the service, during which her several of her hits such as I’m Still Here and Ten Thousand Angels were played.

The singer’s mother Gayle Inge spoke through tears at the service and told mourners.

“Mindy adored her two children,” she said. “She wanted them to know that. Through much agony and pain, she went to heaven. She is no longer sick. She is healed. Thank you for all who are here.

“Please pray for those boys. No matter what, she will always be my little girl, sitting in her car seat, singing into a hairbrush. The world was her stage.

“Our family is devastated by the loss of our beautiful and talented daughter. Her life, no matter how brief, touched many, and she will forever be our special angel.”

In lieu of flowers, the family requested that donations be made to the Mindy McCready Children’s Trust.
