Cindy Anthony writes eulogy for slain granddaughter Caylee

February 8, 2009

(ChattahBox) — The grandmother of slain toddler Caylee Anthony says the child’s life didn’t end “without a purpose.” In a eulogy published in the Orlando Sentinel Cindy Anthony says granddaughter Caylee “now has her angel wings and will be watching over so many other children.” It’s just too bad someone on earth wasn’t watching over Caylee a little closer.

Cindy Anthony says donations have been made on Caylee’s behalf to organizations that help children, such as Toys for Tots and the Make-a-Wish Foundation. She says the family will establish a foundation in Caylee’s name.
She is asking that only those with “the purest of hearts” and “truly honorable intentions” attend a public memorial service for her this week.

Caylee was 2 when she disappeared last summer. Her remains were found Dec. 11.

Her mother, Casey Anthony, has been charged with killing her.

The memorial service is set for Tuesday.   You can read the entire eulogy here.

    My heart goes out to George and Cindy Anthony..I feel especially sorry for Cindy,,She hs taken all the blunt voices from so many..they blame her for everything, How could they know how she feels..She is a mother that lost a daughter and a precious grandaughter. She is the wife of a retired police officer, only other wives of police officers know what her life was like, she is also a nurse, and again only a nurse knows that life of life and death..Her cup has been full and she is handeling it the best she can and hold thngs together..God bless you Cindy and keep doing all you have to do, someone has to do it and there are those of us that do care for you….God Bless you…

    This was not a “missing child;” she was a murdered child. The murderer was the “child” of Cindy and George Anthony.

    Perhaps the funds should be used to investigate why these and other seemingly well-intentioned parents failed in raising a child who later
    became a human predator. Where was the twig misbent? Could this be prevented from happening again?

    Something tells me Toy-for-Tots isn’t going to be the answer.
