The memorial service held in Blue Ridge took place just five days after Belcher killed Perkins and then shot himself in the head. Life Celebration Funeral Home says a separate service will be held on Saturday in Austin, followed by burial in nearby Pflugerville.
Perkins is survived by two siblings, her parents, grandparents, a great-grandmother and the couple’s 3-month-old daughter, Zoey.
Recent reports indicate that the orphaned child is eligible to receive at least $1 million from the NFL as she grows up. Under the terms of the league’s Surviving Child benefit, Zoey will receive $9,000 per month for the next 48 months and at least $4,000 per month from age 4 until she turns 18– or 23 if she goes to college.
She will also be covered under the league’s health care benefits plan for the next five years.
Belcher’s beneficiaries will receive a life insurance payment of $1.2 million as well as money from a savings account set up through the league. The NFL keeps the identities of the beneficiaries private.
