UPDATE: SOPHIE Bombski loved unicorns and at the entrance to her celebration of life a small pink unicorn welcomed guests.

Hundreds packed the Caloundra Gregson & Weight funeral home to join in the sharing of memories of a beautiful little girl.

Sophie died on March 1 after being pulled out of the family's Little Mountain swimming pool two days earlier.

It is believed Sophie, who was diagnosed with epilepsy at three, had a seizure in the water.

Her dad, Andre, told the Daily earlier in the week how he didn't want "doom and gloom"'at her service.

There wasn't any.

The beautiful service was marked by fond and numerous accounts of Sophie's many adventures and anecdotes.

Mr Bombski shared memories about his "little unicorn girl" and how determined and caring she was.

Three of Sophie's school teachers also shared their amusing accounts of how Sophie made the classroom a brighter and more interesting place.

And each student in her Year 5 class wrote one word to describe Sophie.

She was smart, caring, beautiful, friendly and, of course, she loved unicorns.

Sophie's mum, Karina read Sophie's favourite bedtime story Time for Bed, followed by I sit in heaven.

The Bombskis had only moved to the Sunshine Coast three years ago, and in that short time their little girl made a huge impact.

The service continues.
