OVER two hundred men, women and children packed the chapel at Calvia Cemetery yesterday morning to say farewell to three year old Ellie Wilkinson, the little girl who touched everyone's heart during her short life.

The huge swell of support for her devoted parents Candice and Jason and their family was overwhelming.
The Reverend Robert Ellis, as always, expressed perfectly the feelings of everyone present.
MANY TEARS There were many tears, but muted laughter too as Robert read out Jason's memories of his treasured little child; recounting stories of Ellie's special brand of willfulness and mischievousness brought a little light relief to the immense sadness within each one gathered there.

On cue the sun filtered through the chapel's stained glass window illuminating the huge photo of Ellie and her unforgettable dazzling smile that will remain forever imprinted on the memories of all who were fortunate enough to know her.
