The service included a slideshow of photos of Perkins as she grew up, from a shot of her with a cowboy hat on a horse as a young girl to posing in a graduation gown to photos of her pregnant and then with her daughter.

As the slideshow of photos ended, a note from Perkins‘ mother was shown in which she writes that she’ll promise to make sure Zoey knows “what a beautiful person her mother was.”

Downing ended his eulogy by saying, “Goodbye for now, Kasi. We’ll see you one day. I love you.”

Another service for Perkins will be held in Austin, where Perkins‘ father lives. Life Celebration Funeral Home said that service will be held Saturday, followed by burial in nearby Pflugerville.
