Family and friends gathered for the funeral of country music star Mindy McCready in her Florida hometown of Ft. Meyers.
About 200 people were present today at the Crossroads Baptist Church. McCready's music played in the background and her image was shown on a large screen behind the altar.

Mindy McCready committed suicide Feb. 17 at her home in Arkansas, days after leaving a court-ordered substance abuse treatment program. The 37-year-old mother of two died from a single gunshot to the head about a month after her longtime boyfriend David Wilson's death, also thought to be suicide, in the same place.

This is the final chapter of a sad, sad life that could have been so different for Mindy. I ran into Mindy many times when she was at the height of her career, and she was always nice to me, and very kind to her fans. God Bless.
