TRAGIC crash victim Emma Harold has today been described by her grieving sister as a “blossoming English Rose”.
Michelle Luetchford, a sister to 26-year-old Emma, who was killed following a collision last month in Foxhall Road, Ipswich, along with Kate Wasyluk, read out a poem she had written at her memorial service on Wednesday. Her other sister Rebecca, 25, who also suffered serious injuries in the incident and is still in a wheelchair, was present at the funeral.
Michelle claims that the family are very private and that Emma would have hated to be in the limelight, but passed on a copy of the poem to the Evening Star to ensure she is never forgotten.
In the poem she talks about how close the pair were and describes her as “thoughtful, caring and sensitive”.
