CHRISTOPHER Rowe has released three white doves in a heartbreaking tribute to the parents and sister he lost in the Kapunda murders.
An emotional Christopher did not speak, but the grief of the funeral for Andrew, Rose and Chantelle Rowe, overcame several people among an estimated 600 mourners.
Some required medical attention in the warm conditions and at least one young woman fainted.
Four of Chantelle Rowe’s girlfriends, each wearing pink tank tops, performed a dance to the Black Eyed Peas song, “Time of my Life” in a personal tribute to their friend.
One spoke during the moving service saying: “Chantelle, you touched so many people and made them love you in an instant,” she said. “You are one in a million.”
A white teddy bear was placed on Chantelle’s coffin and balloons, many with personal notes written on them, were released as three hearses pulled out of Dutton Park.
