In his address to the mourners in St Gabriel's Church, the Bishop of Monmouth paid tribute to Kim Buckley's "wonderful personality", describing her as "always full of fun."

Kayleigh was a shy, but loving girl, who together with her mum was overjoyed to become a mum herself:

Her baby Kimberly fought bravely for many months until strong enough to come home to a house filled with balloons.

Within hours it all, through the fire, ended in tragedy.
