The sister of singers Aaron and Nick Carter was remembered in a funeral service on Sunday in New York state.
More than 60 friends and family members gave thanks for the life of Leslie Carter who died last week aged 25, leaving behind a ten-month-old baby.
Among them were her mother, her widower and brother Aaron.
Her other sibling former Backstreet Boys singer Nick did not attend because he had a concert that evening.
In a statement, he said: "I wanted to be at my sister's funeral, but my family has always had a complicated dynamic. I love my family."
A mourner said about the service: "It was a celebration of who she was and how much she was loved by everyone.
"There was a lot of crying but there was laughter too – there was joy in the stories people told."
