Family and friends held the funeral for 2-year-old Noah Chamberlin Wednesday in Jackson. 

A live stream for the service was made available through Fellowship Bible Church, where the funeral was held.

Dozens of search crews spent days trying to find the boy. Officials said they found his tracks in the woods which led to the discovery. 

They believed Noah got disoriented when he walked away from his grandmother. Officials said he was found near a trail that he could have stayed on to find help.

Law enforcement officials said no foul play was suspected, and his death was a tragic accident. 

The funeral opened up with a slideshow of pictures of Noah.

The little boy's parents spoke about the search efforts and the loss of their son. The couple took the stage together. His father first quoted a Bible passage saying it was the only way they were able to get through the past weeks.

They then played a short video clip of Noah singing a song along with his parents. His mother thanked the dozens of people whom spent many days searching for her little boy; then  shared several encouraging letters that had been sent to them for people across the state and nation.

The rest of the service was filled with worship, and every speaker reinforced the family's belief that everything happens for a reason.
