Brad Conway, the attorney for Cindy and George Anthony, said in an announcement that, contrary to some reports, the relatives were not seeking financial contributions to pay for the services (which would be held after a second autopsy on the remains is conducted).
"It is important that people's kind donations of hard-earned money during difficult times go toward their intended wishes," said Conway. "All money currently held in any account dedicated to finding Caylee will be given to an as-yet-undetermined nonprofit organization devoted to finding missing children."
He added, "The Anthonys appreciate and respect the public show of love and affection for little Caylee, their only granddaughter. It is their intention to have both a private ceremony as well as a public ceremony. The Anthonys want to begin the process of healing not only for themselves, but for our entire community."
Large Venue SoughtWhile he did not name a date or place for the tributes, Conway did say, "The public memorial will have to be located at a large venue so that everyone who wants to pay their last respects to this beautiful child may do so," Conway said.
A spokesman for the jail where Caylee's mother and accused murderer, Casey Anthony, is being held pending trial said that Casey would not be able to attend a funeral or memorial service because of the charges against her, as well as for safety and security reasons, reports FOX News.
Caylee was 2 when she disappeared last summer. Casey Anthony was arrested Oct. 14 and charged with murder, even though her daughter's remains had yet to be uncovered.
