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:

What an incredibly sad day.
Anyone who is familiar with Hugh Hefner, Playboy, or even just The Girls Next Door, also knew about his very close friendship with his longtime secretary Mary O'Connor, who was frequently featured on the reality series and largely considered to be a part of his, ahem, 'unconventional' yet very loving family!
However, it's with a heavy heart that we must report that the woman who dedicated over 40 years the founder of the gentleman's magazine has passed on, leaving not only Hef devastated, but many of his current - and former - love interests with whom she cultivated very close relationships.
Hef took to Twitter last night announce the upsetting news:
