The grandmother of slain Orlando toddler Caylee Anthony says the child's life didn't end "without a purpose."
In a eulogy published in the Orlando Sentinel Sunday, Cindy Anthony says her granddaughter "now has her angel wings and will be watching over so many other children."
Cindy Anthony said the family will honor Caylee's memory by starting the Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation.
"The foundation's purpose will be to continue to generate awareness for missing children and to establish programs to assist in the well-being of those children in need of comfort and support during difficult and stressful times," she wrote.
Caylee was 2 years old when she was reported missing last summer. Her remains were found Dec. 11 in a wooded area about two miles from her home.
The toddler's mother, Casey Anthony, was charged with her murder.
Cindy Anthony wrote that her ganddaughter's death has led to an increase in donations to charitable organizations like Toys for Tots, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, and Kind Finders Network.
A memorial service is being held Tuesday for Caylee.
The public will be invited to attend the service at the First Baptist Church of Orlando. Cameras will not be allowed inside.
"The family is requesting that those with only the purest of hearts and truly honorable intentions attend the service for their beloved child," Cindy Anthony wrote. "This service will be a tribute to her life and a time for her family and friends to finally be together to openly express and share their love for her."
