'Not to mourn a death but to celebrate a life cut tragically short'

Opening the service of Georgia Williams funeral reverend Mark Ireland said:

"We have come together not to mourn a death but to celebrate a life tragically cut short.

"But the measure of a life is not in the length of days but the impact of its character and the vibrancy and colour of this gathering today is a sign of Georgia's life."
