ALICE KELLY, the teenager killed by a falling tree, will be buried on Monday.
A funeral service at Salendine Nook Baptist Church is expected to be attended by hundreds of relatives and friends.
The 13-year-old schoolgirl was tragically killed last Monday when high winds brought down a huge tree branch.
The branch landed on Alice as she and her friends walked along a path alongside Reinwood recreation ground, on their way to a local shop.
The tragedy happened just yards from her home in Millfield Close, Oakes, and her mum Katie was one of the first on the scene to try and help.
Alice, a student at Salendine Nook High School, was rushed to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary less than half a mile away but sadly died.
An inquest into her death has been opened in Bradford. It was adjourned for further investigations into the tragedy.
Monday’s funeral service, at 3pm, will include a collection for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
Tributes to Alice have been placed on the Gonetoosoon website, run by Examiner columnist Terry George.
One reads: “A special angel has been taken and a special friend to all who knew her. Take all the love from your family and friends and fill your heart with joy for you will be missed forever. Time does not heal it only makes the grief more bearable. Sleep tight Alice x x x x.”
Her cousin Georgia writes: “I miss you loads and I wish you were still here. I think about you every day and so does the rest of your family”.
Alice’s aunt Jo and uncle Mick, from Huddersfield, said: “Ali, how we are all going too miss you. Things will never be the same but you will be in our hearts for ever”.
And her cousin Sammy wrote: “I miss you so much already it’s untrue. I just wish you were still here. You played a big part in my life and everyone else’s that you knew.”
