The four-year-old girl died when she was allegedly dropped from a 58-metre section of the West Gate Bridge by her father on Thursday. It was the day she was due to start school.
Her uncle, Tim Barnes, remembered Darcey as a determined and strong-willed child who loved her two brothers.
Speaking on behalf of Darcey's relatives, Mr Barnes said the family would ``love to see'' an annual Children's Day dedicated to those "taken from us too early in their lives''.
"Our desire is for this to be a celebration where families rejoice together through fun and laughter,'' he said.
Following Darcey's death, thousands of people flooded social networking website Facebook with messages of support, and called for a public service to celebrate her life. Mr Barnes said the family backed the community's wish.
"We are in favour of an event being held at a park where children have the opportunity to embrace life and enjoy activities whilst having fun with their families,'' Mr Barnes said in a video statement released to the media by Victoria Police today.
He painted a picture of a loving child who adored her brothers and cousins, enjoyed music and playing on the trampoline.
Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport was her favourite song.
Mr Barnes said the family now felt an extreme sense of "emptiness''.
"We will never understand the reasons why or how any individual could ever do such an act to our precious little girl. Sometimes things in life are just not fair,'' he said.
