  4. Julie, Nigel and all the family,

    Thank you for allowing us to be a part of the requiem mass for Emma. It was a truly beautiful tribute on so many levels. It was lovely to see you surrounded and supported by so many family and friends.
    “May the choir of angels welcome her and take her into Paradise.”

  5. Dearest Julie, Nigel and family
    What a befitting tribute to your gorgeous Emma. As I watched my tears were running: sadness for the loss of such a beautiful girl, but joy for the family you have brought up to be such a loving and caring Finney clan. May the memories of her effervescence sustain and comfort you all.
    Much love and big hugs.

  6. Dear Nigel, Julie and all your family. Sending you my love and deepest sympathy on the loss of Emma. I have fond memories of Emma’s time rowing and coxing at Powerhouse.

  7. Such a beautiful service, lovely to hear so many fond and cherished memories and stories of Em. She was such a beautiful soul and will be so missed. Sending lots of love and hugs from Sydney to the whole family xx

  8. Becc, Jono, Andrew, Nigel and Julie,

    Giving you all a big virtual hug, you’re the kindest most loving family and we love you all very much, Dom xo

  9. To gorgeous Emma. As Hamish and I sit in Singapore saying goodbye to you we can’t help but think of all the joy you bought to our lives. From watching you try to dry your hair with air conditioning unit in Cuba to your overuse of Deet insect repellant because it made your skin “glow” you never failed to make everything exciting. We were especially lucky to share our honeymoon with you and won’t forget how excited you were to see the tour de France. Or your indignation that so many men were staring at you when you were wearing a singlet top in a very Muslim country – Morrocco. We are better people for having you in our lives and we will certainly never be able to listen to your beloved Johnny Farnham singing “you’re the voice” without smiling and imagining you belting it out in the back of every car you’ve ever been in. To your family, all our love and strength. We miss you, Claire and Hamish Bull

  10. Nigel, Julie, Andrew, Jonathan, Becc and family, our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We are deeply saddened by our loss but will always be thankful to be one of the lucky ones to have known Emma’s strong, fun and beautiful spirit – thank you Em, we will miss you.

  11. Our hearts go out to you all.
    Heaven has gained a bright shining angel with a smile to rival the stars.
    We are grateful we were able to share such a moving tribute to Emma’s life

  13. Julie and family,
    The service for Emma showed how much she packed into her short life, and how many wonderful memories you obviously have.

    Kindest regards,

  15. Dear Nige and Julie,
    I have just watched a beautiful family farewell a treasured child and sister. Emma will always be part of your lives, in the background of every family event, spoken of lovingly.
    Julie, your words at the end about going on, looking forward- it is what we as parents have to do. To be present for the other children and grandchildren, treasuring Emma’s memory, but living our lives.
    She was such a lucky girl to have been so loved. I’m absolutely sure she knew that.
    With love,
    Sal xx

  22. To my lovely cousin Emma, gone but never forgotten, I miss our weekly chats online already, I miss that infection smile, how you light a room as you walked in it, your love of life, you were my closest family other then my parents, we shared things I think most people wouldn’t, my soul is broken now your not here, I will always remember our weekend lunches at our grandparents house, swimming in the pool and even when we were so young playing dolls or talking about boys when we had grown up! gone way way way to young, but you definitely won’t be forgotten, for your energy and soul still burns strong in everyone you came across in your lifetime, I love you always Emma, all I want is to hug our family you left behind, take there pain away, i want to hug you once more, I hope to stop crying one day soon, but for now I will remember, everything so good in our lives and our family, I miss you
    Always and forever
    I love you
