We would just like to thank everyone that attended Emma Reilly‘s funeral, watched online, lined the streets to pay their respects, made donations and then the huge amount of people that took part in the wave of light which was beyond all our expectations.
The funeral was the toughest thing that we will probably ever face, but it was amazing, if emotional, to see just how many people wanted to give her a good send-off.
We’d like to especially thank Louise Williams and Emma James for the readings during the service and also Tommy and Emma James for turning Impney Close into a mass of candles which came as a surprise as I drove back into the close!
We will be planning some events once lockdown is over and also fundraising for her favourite charities, so keep an eye out for those which will be both in Redditch and Manchester over time.
Emma was special and will be missed by so many, but we will keep her memory alive forever.
Tony, Mike, Doreen and Matthew.
Emma’s husband of 15 years. Dad to 5-year-old Connor.
