Funeral will be a 'celebration of Hannah's life'

The father of cyberbullying victim Hannah Smith has said her funeral will be a "celebration" of her life.

David Smith has asked her friends to wear onesies at the service, due to take place on Friday, and banned anyone from wearing black.

"Friday will be a celebration of Hannah's life, not the mourning of her death," Mr Smith told the Leicester Mercury.

"No-one is allowed to wear black and I have asked all her friends to wear their onesies because Hannah virtually lived in hers.

"I know Hannah would not want us to be sad. She would want us to be happy.

"I know she would be up there smiling if all her friends turned up at the church wearing their onesies."

Hannah Smith, 14, took her own life after reportedly being bullied on social networking site ask.fm.
