Mindy McCready's family and friends gathered yesterday for her funeral in her Florida hometown.
Mindy's mother, Gayle Inge, said the singer will always be her little girl in a car-seat singing into a hairbrush. Gayle said, 'I cannot imagine how we go on from here.'
Around 400 people attended the service which was opened to the public at the Crossroads Baptist Church in Fort Myers as McCready's music played in the background and her image was shown on a large screen behind the altar.
The 37-year-old mother-of-two committed suicide with a self-inflicted gun-shot wound on February 17 at her home in Arkansas, days after leaving a court-ordered substance abuse program program.
It was the same way her boyfriend David Wilson took his own life at their Heber Springs home in Arkansas just over a month before.
Mindy's mother said she was happy that her daughter's pain would now be healed in heaven after having endured such struggles while living.
Gayle said, 'Our Mindy was so tired. She felt helpless.
'I know she wanted to be healed. We talked about this. She was in her darkest moment and she was hurt by so many allegations. She was too emotional to understand.'
