The 4-year-old found dead after she went missing in early May will be buried in a colorful, one-of-a-kind casket, a tribute to her memory and her grieving family, according to CNN.

The casket for Maleah Davis was built and donated by SoulShine Industries to the Davis family. “The casket is the most important part of remembering somebody, so it should be special,” said company owner Trey Ganem told CNN.

Ganem said that he received over 200 calls from the community asking him to make a casket for the Davis family. She will be buried in a private funeral on Saturday.

The final product was a white casket covered with rainbows, the color pink, “My Little Pony,” and even a portrait of Maleah.

“It was such a blessing to provide something special for this loving family,” Ganem said.

Meleah’s remains were found in Arkansas on May 30, according to Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo. Her mother’s former fiancé, Derion Vence, is charged with tampering with a corpse in connection to Meleah’s death.
