Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Lynn Love

The heart­bro­ken par­ents of a nine-year-old girl who died sud­denly de­scribed her as their “hero”.

Fam­ily and friends dressed in bright colours to re­lease bal­loons with spe­cial mes­sages and kisses to the heav­ens as a fi­nal farewell to beau­ti­ful Heather Hunter at her funeral last Fri­day.

Heather’s heart­bro­ken mum, Michelle, told the Wishaw Press: “She was an in­spi­ra­tion and the way she fought her ill­ness was amaz­ing.”

Fam­ily friends Claire Gilchrist and Louise Don­nachie Hen­der­son have raised more than £4000 in her memory.

They said: “Heather had the sweet­est, kind­est, car­ing and com­pas­sion­ate na­ture.” FULL STORY PAGE 3
