So many people came to visit us during this time. People sent cards, mass cards, letters and so many flowers. The telephone rang constantly and the house was filled with the fragrance of flowers. We are very grateful for the support and kindness we’ve received from everyone.

A requiem mass was held to celebrate Amy’s life on Friday 24 May 2002 at All Hallows RC Church concelebrated by Canon Patrick Daly, Father John Griffiths and Canon John O’Regan. Amy’s friends, classmates, their parents and many of the teaching staff from Cardinal Newman RC School attended and took an active part in the mass. After the mass everyone gathered at Llanharan Cemetery for Amy’s burial and then joined us at the Mountain Hare Pub. An incredible amount of people attended Amy’s funeral: family, friends, old friends and new friends.

We visit Amy’s grave at least once a week with flowers. Quite often we are touched to find flowers left on her grave from her friends.
