COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A Columbus toddler who died in a hot car was laid to rest Saturday.

The funeral of 3-year-old Kendrick Engram, Jr. was held at Kindgom Power Community Church of Love on 2nd Avenue. Funeral Director Keith Lamb says the service was Cocomelon-themed after they found out the child loved the show.

“We wanted to be in a sense where we’re showing sympathy, empathy as well,” Lamb said.

Most attendees wore blue, the toddler’s favorite color.

Friday, family and friends gathered to say their goodbyes to during a viewing held at Lamb Funeral Home on Buena Vista Road in Columbus. It was open to the public from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Engram was found dead inside a vehicle at Wendy’s on Wynnton Road two weeks ago.
