On Sunday 14th May we held Milla's Picnic next to the river Avon in Stratford. Around 100 friends and family travelled from as far as Northern Ireland, Middlesborough, Eastbourne, Peterborough and Margate to join us and eat together, remember Milla, celebrate her life and smile. The sun shone all afternoon.
Milla was with us in our hearts and thoughts.
On Stratford's green and pleasant field
Next the Avon flowing quiet and shy
Under shaded tree
Sun ablaze in turquoise sky
Gentle breeze blowing together
Friends from far from near
Friends together as one
Remembering with a smile in unison
A little girl who so loved this place
Verdant field, river, trees and space
Memories float on warm afternoon air
Tears of laughter and sadness for everyone there
Friendships strengthened, old, new, renewed Made all the stronger by a little girl
Who knew how to make people smile
