Baby Doe Bella, the 2-year-old girl whose remains were found months ago in a plastic bag on a Boston Harbor beach, finally has been buried, in a donated dress and with a handmade quilt covering her casket.

Bella Bond was laid to rest near her paternal great-grandmother after a private funeral on Saturday in Winthrop, Massachusetts. The girl's biological father, Joseph Amoroso, who never met her, kissed his hand and placed it on the coffin during the graveside service, according to The Associated Press..

Bella was buried with a donated quilt and four toys including a stuffed bear and dog, a funeral director told the Boston Globe. Her body was dressed in a donated white lace dress.

A small group of people came out to show support for Bella's family, NECN reported.

Bella's remains were found June 25. A composite image of the girl was shared by millions on social media before she was identified in September.

Her mother's boyfriend, Michael McCarthy, has been charged with murder. Her mother, Rachelle Bond, is charged with being an accessory. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Winthrop Police Chief Terence Delehanty was among those who attended Bella's funeral.

"Today is a sad day, but also a day that we can finally say that she's at rest," he said.
