Our thoughts, Prayers and sincere sympathy go out to the Family of this young girl..

With Respect, I suggest that whilst the Wiltshire Times may have a right to Report, it would be appreciated to see them use "quotes" in a far more compassionate and circumstantially appropriate manner ?

Behind every death, regardless of the cause or reason for, there is a Family and Friends trying to come to terms with and cope with their loss..
