Mindy McCready’s tumultuous saga will finally be laid to a peaceful rest—as well as be celebrated with love by her friends and family.

The late country star’s family has planned a private funeral Tuesday at Crossroads Church in Fort Myers, Fla.; while her friends and peers in the music community are organizing a special memorial in Nashville, tentatively scheduled for March 6 at Music City’s Cathedral of the Incarnation.

McCready’s family has not finalized burial plans for the star, who was pronounced dead Sunday from what has been determined a suicide.

The singer was found on the front porch of her Arkansas home with a gunshot wound to the head; mirroring the death of her boyfriend David Wilson, who suffered the same fate last month. She leaves behind two sons: Zander, 6, and Zayne, 10 months.
