A WREXHAM village has said its fare- wells to little Emily May Hughes.

The four-year-old died on Christmas Day after an accident at her home.

Up to 300 family and friends gathered at St Tydfil’s Church, Coedpoeth, on Friday for a celebration of her young life.

The service was led by the Salvation Army and included some of Emily’s favourite music.

Emily suffered severe head injuries after her father accidentally dropped an old television set on her as he walked downstairs with it on Christmas Eve.

She was taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital and later transferred to Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool, where she died on Christmas Day after suffering a “catastrophic brain injury”.

Her parents, Robert and Louise, said they wanted the funeral to be a celebration of Emily’s life.

The service, led by Major Gill Stacey of the Salvation Army, included tributes from her teacher at Penygelli School.

Some of the music was chosen by Ross, Lucy and Betty – Emily’s brother and sisters.

Two of the songs played in church were Jolene by Dolly Parton, which Emily, who also went to the Salvation Army Sunday school in Coedpoeth, used to enjoy singing, and Human by The Killers.

Each member of the congregation left the church carrying a pink balloon as they processed to the cemetery for a private internment.
