The body of a 3-year old midstate girl was laid to rest today.
Wyncie Bouge died almost two weeks ago after a head-on collision with a suspected drunk driver.
That wreck also killed her grandmother.
Fox 17's Erika Kurre shows us why a worship center full of people spent the afternoon rejoicing in her honor.
Her mother, Megan Bouge, was seriously hurt and will likely continue needing medical care for several months.
If you'd like to help the Bouge family, there is a fund set up at area Regions Banks called The Bouge Family Assistance Fund.
You can also donate to Bethel Baptist Church of Greenbrier, First Baptist Church of Greenbrier or online.
There is a link to the online fund on fox17.com. Just click the "Links" tab on the left side and look for "Donations to The Bouge Family."
