It's not easy to find the right words. Kirsty was a beautiful girl both inside and out. When she was in my class, in year 8, she was one the sweetest, kindest, most hard working children in the group. She had that rare quality called resilience. She never gave up: a personal quality which she retained until the end. For that reason, and many other reasons, she was a joy to teach and a joy to know.
Kirsty had so obviously been brought up beautifully and must be an endless source of pride and joy to her family. X

My memories of Kirsty are of a bright, smiley and positive young lady in the first few years of secondary school. I was incredibly sad when the news that she had passed away reached me here in Australia, and I wish to send my love to her family and friends at this painful time.

Remember and celebrate the good times.

Sorry we had to say goodbye to you today Kirsty.You will not be forgotten though, you will remain in our hearts forever. Everybody who thinks of you will remember your beautiful smile. It was a pleasure to teach someone who always worked so hard, with such enthusiasm, motivation and good humour. Your positivity inspired those around you and has impacted everyone you came into contact with.

God saw you getting tired,
but a cure was not to be,
So he opened up his arms,
And he whispered 'Come to me'.

I hope you are in a better place now Kirsty.

Sleep tight xx

When I last saw you Kirsty, you were in Year 9! I left to go on maternity leave at the end of the summer term and I didn't see you again. I was terribly sad to hear that you were so poorly. I remember helping out in your class in Languages and Humanities, and you were such a lovely girl. You were polite and quiet, and quite happy to sit and watch and listen while everyone else descended into chaos! You were so serene, that sometimes it was easy to forget that you were there....until you smiled, such a sweet, sunny smile that you would light up the room. You were such an inspiration to many, and you lit up the lives of those you loved and cared for. You were one of life's special ones, and our loss is Heaven's gain. You will be missed desperately, and my thoughts and love are with your family and friends. Alder has lost one of it's own, and we will never forget you.
Much love xxx

Rest in peace Kirsty,
You will never be forgotten!
I will never forget the huge smile you always had on your face even at the hardest of times you still would always be thinking of others and ways to help them!

I remember how much you were into your cycling in primary and when we had bike ability in I would think of the skills you told me to try to learn how to use road safety.

You were always so bubbly I don't know how you did it. You will be missed by many and always remain in our hearts.

Keep smiling Kirsty xxxx

I will always remember Kirsty for her beaming smile, enthusiasm and positivity whatever the weather. She was such a delightful girl and an absolute pleasure to teach for all those reasons and many more. I know how proud her Gran was of her and rightly so. Kirsty is a shining example to us all and although gone, will not be forgotten. Rest in peace xx

Kirsty was a polite and pleasant student who always had a good attitude. In class, she was positive and showed others consideration. I noticed how she always showed teachers, myself included, a huge amount of respect and she was always well behaved.

Despite her illness, she remained positive and hopeful. It is a real tragedy that she succumed to the disease in the end.

She was an extremely pleasant student to teach and a pleasure to be in the company of.

God Bless you, Kirsty, and I hope you rest now in eternal peace.

All my love,

Mrs Vali
