A young four-year-old British girl was recently laid to rest, and it was clearly obvious that she had an obsession with Disney’s Frozen, as many children do. Her funeral was themed around the hit film and it even included somber versions of of the songs from the film — and even a Frozen-themed coffin.
According to People, four-year-old Mitzi Rosanna Steady and her grandmother were struck by an out-of-control truck back on February 9. The truck also struck a car carrying three men, and all died.
At the time, Mitzi and her grandmother were walking along to pick up her older siblings from school.
Emmajade Steady, Mitzi’s mother, said that her daughter was a princess and was so very sad for their short amount of time together.
“How can it be that there will be no more memories?… You were just becoming a young girl. So smart, so open and free… I want to come home to you throwing yourself at me again. I want to give you your special milk on your cereal and ask, ‘What shall we do today?’ “
Not only did Mitzi get laid to rest in a Frozen-themed coffin, but there were songs sung from the film, as well. A slow version of “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” was sung by a choir at Britain’s Bath Abbey. It was one of her favorite songs.
The Mirror reported that 19-year-old Philip Potter was arrested by Avon and Somerset Police on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and manslaughter by gross negligence. A 28-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of causing manslaughter by gross negligence. That man is believed to be Potter’s boss.
Both men have been released on police bail pending any further inquiries, but an investigation is ongoing. The police were grateful for anyone and everyone who helped at the scene of the accident.
“We would like to extend heartfelt thanks to all those who helped the injured at the scene of the accident and have looked after our family, and the other families involved, since then.”
The family has asked mourners to please donate to road safety charity Brake, which is an advocate for road safety. They would like these donations instead of flowers and donations to the family.
It may have been a Frozen funeral, but it was one that really shouldn’t have had to happen at all to such a young child. Mitzi Rosanna Steady was only four-years-old and got to enjoy Frozen one last time before being laid to rest.
