A week and a half after Mindy McCready's tragic suicide, the late country star was laid to rest in a funeral held in her hometown of Ft. Myers, Florida earlier today.

The public funeral welcomed 400 mourners to Crossroads Baptist Church after the troubled singer put a single gunhot into her head.

A portrait of Mindy and white roses decorated the stage that presented Mindy's casket as her music was played along with a montage of her life.

Family, friends, and fans were then graced with words from Mindy's mother, Gayle Inge.

In her heartfelt eulogy, Gayle said:

"Mindy adored her two children. 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."

To honor her successful career, Mindy's stepfather, Michael Inge, played the performed Bobby Helms' You Are My Special Angel and ended the ceremony with pallbearers including her brothers Timothy, Joshua, and Skyler.

Her two children were believed to have not been in attendance.

Instead of flowers, the family requested that donations be made to the Mindy McCready Children's Trust.

A second memorial will take place in March in Nashville for Mindy's colleagues.

We're still in disbelief over this catastrophic loss for the country music world, but we hope that wherever Mindy is, she is in a happier place.
