CALVERTON PARK, Mo. (KMOV/CNN) - A family in St. Louis County was set to celebrate a birthday this weekend, but now they're planning a funeral.
Joseline Eichelberger, 11 months old, was found dead in a car Sunday. Police said she had been in the hot car for about 16 hours.
"Her smile, like, when I hugged her, she would always say 'aaah' and stuff like that," said Lilly Bellfiel, her cousin. "She was so loveable."
Her parents, according to family friend Barbara Beckett, are devastated.
"It's a nightmare. They are traumatized," she said. "They can't quit crying."
Saturday night is when life changed for her friends.
