Pallbearers included McCready's three brothers -- Timothy, Joshua and Skyler -- and some of her cousins.

"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," said McCready's mother, Gayle Inge, told the mourners gathered inside the church.

A memorial service is also being planned in Nashville by McCready's friends in the music industry.
