A fond farewell was held in Franklin Tuesday for the little girl who police say was killed by her mother's boyfriend.

Dozens came bearing gifts and well-wishes during the visitation for Kinsley Kinner.

While tears shed at Vineyard Community Church for 2-year-old Kinsley. There were just as many heart-warming smiles because her death is bringing a lot of hope to others who need it.

"Its right at Christmas time and with Scott doing everything that he's been want to do for other children, it kind of our way to payback. Its Christmas for Kinsley," said Derrick Burton.

Kinsley's father, Scott Senft, asked all who attended the service to bring a toy to be donated in lieu of flowers. He also made Kinsley an organ donor and the families of two children who recipients of her organs were also in attendance.

"A father to give his daughters organs and know that his daughter's life lives on through other kids that are receiving those. What a blessing. Just amazing," said Jeff Hataway.

One baby received Kinsley's lungs, and the child's family was there to say thank you.

"And I think that's just great and they are so thankful for everything we've helped with. And the other baby that's got her liver is doing good right now too and we're just so happy for them," said Terri Senft, Kinsley's great grandmother.

Kinsley's family says they want to make the gift donation in her name an annual event.

"Kinsley's name will live on forever. She may be gone but she's not forgotten," Hataway said.

Funeral services for Kinsley will be held  at 11 a.m. at Vineyard Community Church on State Route 129.

Bradley Young, 27, is charged with murder and the girl's mother, Rebecca Ashton Kinner, 23, faces a charge of felony permitting child abuse.
