Lily Quintus celebrated her birthday last month as any 4-year-old would — as a princess.
It was a fitting celebration for the girl who loved to twirl around the house in her Elsa dress and belt songs from Disney's smash hit "Frozen."
The young girl was the only child killed when a car barreled through her day care center on Wednesday. More than a dozen others were hurt.

Robert Corchado, the convicted felon who troopers say caused the deadly hit-and-run crash, turned himself in at the Orange County Jail on Thursday.
During a court hearing Friday, prosecutor Austin Price said Corchado is a flight risk and if released, authorities could not "reasonably protect the community."
"(The Florida Highway Patrol) has on good authority that this defendant is planning to, once he posts bond, to leave the country and flee," Price told Orange County Judge Jerry L. Brewer.
Brewer set a hearing to revisit the issue of Corchado's bail Monday. He won't be getting out either way: Prosecutors confirmed a judge in Seminole County on Friday revoked Corchado's bond in an earlier hit-and-run crash.
Price is expected to file a motion by Monday to revoke Corchado's $100,000 bail in the day-care crash and keep him jailed until that case is resolved.
No family members or friends attended Corchado's first appearance. He faces charges of leaving the scene of an accident involving a death following the crash at the KinderCare.
As the judge and attorneys argued the legalities of Corchado's criminal case, Lily's parents planned the little girl's funeral.
"It's not something you prepare for," said Lily's mom, Nicole Quintus.
Lily was born in Orlando and was Nicole and Brian Quintus' second child. She loved Star Wars, swords, unicorns and princesses. Her favorite show was Dr. Who, her mother said.
"She was beautiful," Quintus said. "She was a perfect, sweet, funny girl."
According to troopers, Corchado was driving a Dodge Durango northbound on Goldenrod Road on Wednesday afternoon when he crashed into the back of a Toyota Solara driven by Albert Dean Campbell, 61.
Campbell had slowed his Toyota to make a right turn.
The impact sent the Toyota plowing into the day care, striking several children before it stopped near the back of the building. Corchado fled the scene, troopers say.
Stuart Hyman, a veteran Orlando attorney who specializes in traffic cases, confirmed Friday that he has been hired to represent Campbell.
Campbell, who works in real estate in the Winter Park area, decided to seek representation amid a flurry of media inquiries, Hyman said: "I think that it's just because there was a very traumatic situation, and they were getting deluged by people from the press contacting him," the lawyer told the Orlando Sentinel.
Campbell and his family "are just regular people," Hyman said, coping with "a very traumatic experience."
Lily died and 14 others were hurt. One child was still in critical condition at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children on Friday.
Meanwhile, a report filed by troopers provides new information about how authorities identified Corchado as their suspect.
Two men working on the roof of a Marathon gas station next to the KinderCare gave a description of the Durango, which authorities later found at a house on Orange Avenue in the Winter Park area.
Lachmin Persaud, who was at the house when Corchado arrived, stepped outside to find Corchado standing near the Durango, which was missing its bumper, the FHP report said.
Persaud told troopers Corchado or one of his relatives owned the SUV. She asked Corchado what happened: "Don't worry about it," he replied, according to the court document.
Troopers say Corchado ditched the Durango and rented a black Mazda CX-5 from an Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Winter Park. Troopers are still looking for that vehicle.
Corchado's mother, Evelyn Rivera Corchado, told troopers she left her family's home on Grand Avenue in Seminole County to run errands the morning of the crash.
The Durango was there when she left, she said, and her son was the only other person home.
