Celebration of Life for Sophia Myers

Friends and family of Sophia Myers say although Sophia has passed on, her light will always shine in Ocean Springs.
Not a parking spot was empty at a church packed full of family, friends, and community members celebrating the life of seven-year-old Sophia Myers. The little girl from Ocean Springs lost her life Friday after battling a rare and deadly brain tumor.
Emotions ran high as eulogies were given describing Sophia as a beautiful, kind, and loving child. Churches from different denominations, local businesses, and residents from across the Coast came together to make St. Paul United Methodist Church look like a scene out of a fairy tale.
Friends of the Myers family tell News 25, Sophia’s mother wanted the ceremony to look like Sophia’s sixteenth birthday, wedding, and goodbye celebration all in one.
