Father invites 14-year-old daughter's bullies to her funeral

Father invites 14-year-old daughter's bullies to her funeral

A sea of blue will envelope friends and family as they remember lovely teen Amy "Dolly" Jayne Everett whose suicide last week has triggered a national call to arms against relentless bullying.

Entire families came dressed in blue - Dolly's favourite colour - and some even donned Akubras in a nod to her being the face of advertisements years ago.

Her father, Tick Everett, flanked by his wife Meg and daughter Meg, urged parents to speak to their children about their relationships and bullying. "Dolly could be anyone's daughter, sister, friend".

Northern Territory police say they are investigating the bullying allegations on behalf of a state coroner who will report on the cause of Dolly's death.

Hairdressers are renowned for being quasi-therapists, and Ms Ollerton said that talking and listening to people is one of the most important aspects of her job.

After the service, mourners released balloons and butterflies.

Mr Vale's message comes just two days after he took to social media to blast a Sudanese mother who blamed Australia's "failing" social support system on her son's involvement in gang crime.

Everett called on those who had bullied his daughter to "witness the complete devastation you have created". I used to play sport with her.

The opposition Labor Party's last prime minister, Kevin Rudd, tweeted, "Any form of bullying is an assault on our values".

The family have established a foundation, Dolly's Dream, to prevent bullying and youth suicide, with Mr Everett saying he would "fly to every school if I could". Dolly saw the good in this world and the good in everybody she met.

Launching Dolly's Dream, Tick said: "We do not want another family to go through what we are going through".

Relatives of other suicide victims are also speaking out, raising hopes that greater awareness of the problem will save lives.

'As a family, we will remember Dolly as a kind, gentle and loving little girl who loved her animals and cared so deeply for other people less fortunate than her. "And in this young girl's life with lethal effect." dolly will be Farewelled at a funeral service in Katherine on Friday.

"It should not have taken the loss of a young life to drive this change but this is where our journey will start".

"This powerful message tells the dark, scary place our attractive angel had traveled to", the family wrote.

A memorial service at Our Lady of Lourdes from 10am Saturday had originally been planned for family and close friends only.
