which he had written for her


The talented Daisy Cousens who dances in Lily's section sang "You Lift me Up" for the recessional. Her clear voice held to the end of a very difficult performance.


Afterwards all the dancers formed a guard of honour for the funeral procession. They held bunches of lilies up as Lily passed by.
