Posted at 3:22 PM, Jun 14, 2017

Family and friends gathered at the funeral for Harmony Warfield to remember the little girl who was accidentally shot and killed by her cousin.

Hundreds of people from a heartbroken community came to the Gilead Missionary Baptist Church for Wednesday's service.

Harmony's small casket sat in the front of the church just feet away from her sister, mother and grandmother.

Painted on the casket was the Disney princess Tiana and bright pink and purple flowers were draped over it.

Harmony had won on a number of award at Purpose Preparatory Academy. Friends even read some of her writing during the service.

Her favorite food was macaroni. Her favorite color was pink and her family will never get her back.

"It's alright to cry. It's your baby you don't get her back. It's alright to cry. It's your granddaughter she's not coming back it's alright to cry. It's your sister. it's alright to cry. The inability to grieve is the inability to grow," said Pastor Breonus Mitchell.

Harmony's death was the 11th life lost this year involving a child with access to an improperly stored gun.

Metro Police called it an accident, but were still searching for the gun's owner.

Harmony would have turned 8 in January.
