"She was a free spirit and had a wicked sense of humour, making her friends, family and co-workers laugh out loud every day.

"She was truly beautiful inside and out. She will be greatly missed by all and we are deeply saddened by our loss.

"She had so much to still to live for and I can’t express how proud I am to say she was my daughter.  

"We would ask that people respect our privacy at this very difficult time but would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and support."
