"Gorgeous Becca

I'm sorry I haven't been able to write this sooner I guess a part of me has just been so desperate for me to not need to write this, for you to still be right here. I'm still struggling to know what to say.   I miss you more and more with each passing day, your impeccable whiteness(I am yet to meet someone who owns anywhere near as many pieces of white clothing as you!)  our random conversations, your smile, your laugh.....  What I'm trying to say Becca, is that I love you more than you ever knew and miss you more than you could imagine. You are beautiful in every single way and I will never ever forget that. Thank you for everything  xxxxxxxxx"

"Dear Becs,

There isn’t any time I don’t think of you, remember your smile, or your nature. I have wanted to write something on here for you since I set up this page with Gabs back in November, but it’s taken until now to come even remotely close to knowing what I wanted to say.

You were a sister to me for so much of your life, and I’ll always be grateful I had a chance to call you my sister in law. To me this wasn’t you becoming anything new to me as I already thought of you as my little sister, but it was a moment for me to be proud of the new addition I had to my family, and a chance to be excited about the future.

I will always remember your humour; your sharp sense of timing and dry delivery was what always got me. I’ll always remember how you used to like to dress me up in tutu’s and zebra print leggings. I’ll always remember how your life came with its own colour scheme and dress code. I think 6 months after we lost you, we have all started to worry we will forget the little things about you that made you who you are, but I’m positive it’s those very characteristics and quirks that will make it impossible to forgot anything about you. Every bit of who you were was so strong that we will be reminded of so many happy memories we shared with you, every day as we move through our lives.

I knew you for almost half of your life, I watched you grow up from a giggling ballerina who loved to embarrass her sister with stringy pants comments, to an extremely driven but popular young lady. It shows so much about who you were as a person, that we have heard so many wonderful stories from such a wide ranging selection of people about the kind, considerate, and funny you were.

For the last six months I’ve tried to understand what has happened, and I honestly don’t feel much closer to an answer than I did at day one. Understanding losing you isn’t black and white, the finish line isn’t what we expected, and we might reach it at a different pace than we planned, but I’ve learnt to appreciate what is important more, fight for the things I care about harder, and to try to forget those trivial irritations in life more often.

For everything you have taught me about who I should be as a person, I will be forever grateful, I don’t have the words to list them here.

I can’t wait to tell my future about you, there won’t be a day you aren’t in my mind.

I love you and I miss you Becs,

"Hello Becca.  It's such a tender day today.  Even more than any other day.  Six months since you left us.
I wrote a poem for you.  It has been seen by the family, but I thought I'd share it here with your friends.  Just a little act to say, you are and will be forever in our hearts and forever missed.  
Aunty Paula, New Zealand xx

By Paula de Roeper

She gazes out from the photograph
Large crystal eyes
Reflecting her shining heart.

Pale clothes, pale skin, a wistful smile
Stepping lightly upon the path
Of her life,
Until at last she takes her final step.

Light and graceful, she takes flight.

And as she soars higher in her blissful
Sense of freedom
She is caught in the wings of Divine Love

Lifted even higher than she thought possible.
Enveloped by the Angels.
Protected by the Light that has always been within her,
now surrounding her, showing her the way home.

And when they see her soul
Hearts open in an embrace of excitement

“You are home now my love”
They will cry

And with a look over her shoulder
She blows a kiss of love to those behind

“And now, now I can fly” she whispers.

An Angel always Beside You."

"I really miss you Becca. Whenever you were around our house, I could always hear you and Harry laughing and giggling so loudly from upstairs. You are Harry's oldest friend and she loves you so much, as does our family. I'm so glad you two stayed friends throughout the many years. You always had such fun and let me join in with you guys - I remember us cooking together and always having a laugh. You will be missed every day xxx"

"Rebecca, you and I have known each other for over 10 years. We both went to the same primary school as well as the same high school. You made me laugh, you made me a better person and most of all, you've made me realize what life is like if I had friends, so I'd be less alone. Miss you, Becks xxx"

This tribute was added by Iona Balleny on 24th December 2016

"For context, I wrote this about a week after her passing.

A few days ago I went to see you, I got to say everything that I wanted to.... How I'd miss you, how I love you, I got to Thankyou and I got to say goodbye. But I don't want anyone to think for one minute that this is going to be my lasting memory of you because I can assure you it's not. I'll remember the Maltezer eating contests, our awful singing, the walks with Tallie, your infectious laugh, Your ability to eat an entire family sized chocolate cake still astounds me (seriously Becca I was out of the room for 10 minuets and it was gone), our pointless conversations, the odd looks you'd give me across a room to make me laugh (I didn't have to speak to you to know you were there), our risqué inside jokes, your ability to listen to me without any judgement, your absolute weirdness that I have always loved you for, and your acceptance of my weirdness - you are one of the only people I can truly be myself around, your undying love for chocolate, the fact that you could trip over anything even if there was nothing there, your welsh accent, that one time you thought you were gay ("I like holding hands with girls"), your acceptance of my need of a secret handshake, the hatred you had for your braces, your chop stick skill that I could never challenge, your ridiculous ability to keep everything white, the way you used humour to get your frustration out, your ability to get me out of my shell, our incredible chav accents - I can't even remember how to do it anymore without you, your endless film quotations (I would have no clue what you were quoting but I'd appreciate it all the same), your constant need for a plan - if there wasn't one you'd be making it, your love for music whether it was Michael buble or some form of rap you could always keep up with it word for word, our attempts to sledge - they were never particularly successful, the fact that you'd dance with me no matter how embarrassing I got - I don't think I'll ever find a dance partner who is up for doing electric air guitar solos with me in the middle of prom despite not having drunk a thing, your kindness, your ridiculous supply of fluffy socks, the way you'd always be boiling when I was freezing, your overexcitement about the smallest of things, the knowledge that I could always go to you - rely on you, you could make anyone smile even when there was nothing to smile about. I will miss this all, every tiny detail of you - six years was not nearly long enough with you, and I will spend the rest of my life wishing it were longer. I'll never want to say goodbye but I have to, and that fills me with more sadness then I think I will ever feel, I love you Becca. I will complete the plans we made together but none of them and nothing will be the same without you - you were one of few people I knew were going to be in my life for the long run. And now your not. You meant, and mean more to me then you will ever know.
Farewell my friend - Iona x"

You have always been a lovely,sweet girl always smiling I will miss seeing you I just can't believe you will not be around anymore but I will always have lovely memories of you darling Rebecca.

"Rebecca was truly the most wonderful person I had ever met, I'm going to miss her and her laugh so much. I'll always remember going on the German exchange together and spending time with her at school. Her laugh always brought so much joy to everyone, I'm going to miss her so much. <3"

This tribute was added by Georg Kolle-Görgen on 26th November 2016

"We know Rebecca since her happy childhood. Almost every year our two families spent the summer holidays together, one year in England and the other year in Germany. So, it was our privilege to see how nicely Rebecca grew up. Our two families very much enjoyed numerous memorable moments, days and weeks together.
Last year in summer Rebecca lived in our house for two weeks while she attended an internship in the primary school of our village. In the morning she went to school with a big smile in her face. Pupils were just happy with her and the teachers she supported were very content.

During that time the song “Shut up and dance” was popular in the German radio. Whenever the song was played she immediately joined in with her nice voice.  For us, this very song became her song.

Rebecca, we will always keep you in our heart. We pray for you.

Lots of love to you and to Corinne, Mark, Gabriella and Ben xxx
Karla, Georg with family"

"Becca was truly the loveliest person I knew, friends to everyone with such a kind and bubbly heart to always put a smile on my face. She knew straight away how to make you laugh and light up the room in the most dullest lessons, maths. The heart of the party she would bust out all the moves like a natural, a true stunner.  Loved by all and will be deeply missed, all my love, RIP Becca xxx"

"I was lucky enough to work with Becca at The White Horse, and can honestly say that she brought so much laughter and fun into all my shifts I worked with her. I will miss working with her so much, and I'm so grateful for the time I spent with her. My thoughts are with her family and other friends at this time. X"

This tribute was added by Harriet Elson on 13th November 2016

"Becca was my oldest and best friend, all of my family and friends know that as she seemed like part of our family too. When we were younger I would always try to be more like Rebecca in everything I did as I knew then that she truly was the most extraordinary person I would ever be lucky enough to know.
Every second that I spent with you was filled with beautiful smiles, contagious laughter and our constant chatter that would last for hours. Growing up with you has given me so many amazing memories and you have really impacted on who I am today, I cannot thank you enough for how happy you made me. I can't even express how much I already miss you.
I will love you forever Becca x"

"Becca truly made my mornings better every single day- whenever I was struggling to get through the week, she would be there with her never ending sense of humour&simple enjoyment for life ('what a treat'!) I hope with all my heart that she is able to see the extent of people's love for her xxx form will never be the same without your huge heart <3"

This tribute was added by Holly Miles on 12th November 2016

"Becca, with her infectious laugh, she always seemed to carry an aura of positive energy, and never failed to make me smile. She will be deeply missed each and every day, but I will forever be thankful for our friendship, and for the time we shared. I will always feel lucky to have known such a beautiful, genuine soul. Rest in peace❤️"

We first met at Guides where I remember one evening watching the fireworks at Fram College. We kept laughing throughout the night despite it being absolutely freezing! We lost contact for a few years so when I found out we both had a job at The White Horse I was so happy! It was lovely working with you, always giggling and smiling. You were the best at getting the glasses out the glass washer - how were you so strong?!
BEEEG won't be the same. We will all really miss you, Becca."

"We were such close friends in year 8 and 9, and despite both drifting off to our own separate friendship groups afterwards, we still spoke :) Being in my form for year 12, I saw her every morning in her monochrome outfits, and all of would joke and laugh around with each other in those now precious 25 minutes. Rest well my girl, you will be missed❤️️❤️️"

"I last saw Rebecca as a bridesmaid at Gabriella and Ben's  wedding in August.  She had grown up so much but underneath was still the same cheerful personality as the charming and playful four or five year old Rebecca that I first met - she always smiles a lot.  This tragedy comes as such a shock to me, so I cannot imagine how her family must feel.  She seemed such a good person, and I think this was a terrible mistake.  May her soul - and her family - find peace."

This tribute was added by Paula de Roeper on 11th November 2016

"I am Aunty to Rebecca and Gabriella. I live in New Zealand.
My beautiful niece Rebecca (Becca) will be forever in our hearts. Her light shone brightly for the 16, almost 17, years she was with us and her tender love touched us all.  Our world was just too harsh for this sensitive and radiant soul.  Now she is held in the arms of the angels and surrounded by Divine light and love.  Always loved, never forgotten.

A friend of mine lost a child a few years ago.  She sent me a text which I would like to share:
.......... nothing can take the pain away, though it heals in time. It will feel like their world, reality and energy has been smashed into a million pieces.  It is so deep and profound the way this is registered within one's energy, that it belongs to a category of its own. The mind will want to make sense of it but won't be able to.  Gentleness and letting love and Spirit (God, the Divine) support is the only thing that works. No one who goes through this does it alone.  I send them and you my prayers of support as someone who knows.

My daughters and I picked flowers. We put some in a vase and lit a candle. The candle burns every day on our table beside the flowers. A soft gossamer pale pink ribbon surrounds these items.  We held hands and prayed for Becca with the candle in the middle.  We have walked to a river near where we live, with a bowl full of flowers from our garden.  Each flower was thrown individually into the river with special words for Becca. Sometimes it was a sentence, sometimes just a single word.  The flowers floated away on the current. They looked beautiful in the New Zealand Spring sunlight. Representing the beauty that was Becca, her softness, her charm, her light, her love, her very presence. They floated away, as she has floated away.  An angelic gift who came to us for a short time, and now has returned to the place that suits her best - a place of pure love.


A poem by Henry van Dyke:

Gone From My Sight

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side,
spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts
for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck
of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

Then, someone at my side says, "There, she is gone."

Gone where?

Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast,
hull and spar as she was when she left my side.
And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.
Her diminished size is in me -- not in her.

And, just at the moment when someone says, "There, she is gone,"
there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices
ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!"

And that is dying...


Walk into the arms of loved ones who have gone before you and who greet you now Becca. Let them hold you and love you and support you - in the safe keeping of Divine Love forever.

And in my heart there is a special, soft and warm place for you, where tender love surrounds you always.

Your loving Aunty, Paula xxx"

I had the pleasure of meeting Becca whilst working with her during the summer. The few shifts I had with her are filled with laughter and her smile. She was a lovely person and I am glad I had the opportunity to work with her. RIP ❤"

"I know that teachers shouldn't have favourites but... Rebecca,you were one of mine. In the classroom you were always so polite, helpful and kind. You worked hard for yourself but were always willing to help others. You were popular with your peers but the younger children also looked up to you and would seek your company. We used to have a laugh about your Jekyll and Hyde quiet in the classroom but put you in a competitive sport and you were a force to be reckoned with! It has been a pleasure to have known you and my thoughts are with your family.  x"

This tribute was added by Beth Sheridan on 11th November 2016

"Becca was the kindest and funniest person and was an amazing friend to so many people. I have also never known anyone so clumsy, Becca you managed to fall over at least once whenever I saw you. We were always laughing and even lessons with you were so much fun. I will never forget you and your Stevie impressions and dancing and the mobile choir. You will be missed by everyone so much, rest in peace Becca ❤️"

I remember seeing you all the way through primary school when I worked in the office from when you first started as a shy little girl until you left as a young woman to attend high school. When I think of you I will always remember your beautiful smile. Sleep tight lovely girl and rest in peace. Love to your mum, dad and Gabriella. XX"

"Becca was honestly an amazing and unique person. There will never be anyone else like her, I'd always see her laughing and making other people laugh. Even though i might not have seen her everyday, anytime I did, She'd always put a smile on my face. You didn't have to know her the best for her to touch your heart. She was so kind, thoughtful, beautiful and funny, and was nice to anyone she met!
I will never forget her or any of the times I spent with her. I will always miss her and seeing her smile around school everyday.
Forever loving and missing you Becca <3"

This tribute was added by Alison Pearce on 11th November 2016

"Becca and Amber were friends from Primary School and had stayed in touch, they shared many birthdays together.  I think my best memory of Becca was the movie marathon they had at our house - random singing to Pitch Perfect and jumps and squeals to Woman in Black and copious amounts of popcorn eaten.  Her laugh was infectious and her natural beauty shone through her smile.  A truly warm, kind and caring person who will be missed by all who had the privilege to know her.  My thoughts,  love and hugs are with you, Mark, Corinne and Gabby.  Rest in Peace Becca xx"

I will never forget our DMCs with Jade, the numerous bus journeys to school, or the time we went to see the fireworks in the village - despite not living there, you knew far more people than I did. I still have the purple socks you gave me for Christmas (but I'm afraid the Lindt reindeer is long gone). Although it saddens me that we grew apart over the past year, I will never forget the many memories that we have together. I'm so sorry we became less close. Rest in peace Becca xxx"

The amazing impact she had on everyone with her infectious laugh and endless love is truly unforgettable and will be in our memories forever . Love goes out to her family and friends. xx"

This tribute was added by Jordan Bain on 10th November 2016

"I was lucky enough to have known Rebecca since year 7 and am lucky enough to call her my friend. Actions speak louder than words and her actions have left a lasting impression on us all. A picture paints a thousand words and her lasting image of beauty will never be forgotten. Her smile could launch a thousand ships and her laughter could bring joy to any day. I speak as if Becca was short of words but that is far from the truth. A conversation with her could go from a moment to half of lunch; my only regret is preventing these conversations lasting the whole of lunch. Her words were full of genuine love and kindness, her positive attitude could stare adversity in the face and she gave strength to us all where there was none to be given.

May you find peace in your journeys to come. XX"

"Becca was just one of the best people you could ever encounter. She was the character who always brought the positive energy to a room full of dullness with her huge smile and even bigger personality. None of us will ever forget Becca simply for who she was; kind, genuine, bubbly and hilariously clumsy. You always knew Becca was around when you could see a flash of white walk through the door or hear her laugh which expressed so much joy and made everyone in her presence feel excessive comfort. I'm proud to say that I had the privilege of Becca being one of my friends and to countless others. What an amazing girl she was, heaven has gained a beautiful angel and may she rest in peace xx."

So much to say about her from my time at the White Horse, Easton from day 1. She shone as someone who was extremely mature, bright, passionate and extremely interesting. Her integration into the team was inspiring, and the way she always remained 'Rebecca' whatever happened. We all had many, many laughs at work which made it all worth it, many thanks to Rebecca. I used to look forward to hearing about her next holiday, also making sure we could fix the rota so we ensured nothing stopped her from living life to the full.
Rebecca - Thank you for everything. A great worker, an even better person.
Sincere and deepest condolences from the bottom of all of our hearts here at the Chestnut group.
Ash (Bar manager at Chestnut Group)"

"Becca, I judged you slightly when you told me you disliked a fry up and you preferred "Egg Royale" for a more sophisticated breakfast, I will miss your contagious laugh, our frequent chats about Nips and your groovy folders. Our trio in form won't be the same for me and Daisy without you, but I hope you're in a better place now. Heaven hasn't gained an angel, let's be honest you weren't angelic, you were a cold-hearted madwoman and that was the way you liked it"

"I knew Rebecca from primary school - it hurts remembering your smile, and your way of speaking because even when we were young you spoke so softly. The smaller memories are what hurt the most though, because they tell you so much more about a person. I listen to, and have read all the things people say about you and it breaks my heart knowing you barely changed. I remember the moments we had together as well, and despite how long ago that was it always reminds me how lucky I was to share my time with you."

"Becca was such a kind and loving person who always made me smile! I can't think of a time when Becca hasn't made me laugh, and she was truly loved by everyone around her. She was beautiful inside and out and one of the friendliest people I have ever met! My thoughts are with all her friends and family, who have lost such a perfect person. ❤️"

"Dear Rebecca
I first met you at Brownies in Framlingham with Hattie. We all moved up to Guides together and spent Tuesday evenings trying to learn how to knit and cook. We always had great fun and there was lots of giggling. I can't tell you how much you meant to me and now I wish I had told you more. You were always smiling and had a wonderful contagious laugh. I remember you invited me to your birthday party with some of your friends from Charsfield and we played charades followed by lots of bad dancing.
When I joined Farlingaye sixth form this term it was you who introduced me to lots of new people and told me to come and find you if I needed anything. I wish you had come to me.
You truly were a beautiful person inside and out. I can't put it into words how sad I feel or how much I will miss you. Much love to your family and friends. I will love you forever Rebecca and thank you for being part of my life.
Rest in peace ♡"

"I never had the pleasure of getting to speak to Rebecca although I did occasionally see her in the mornings and she always seemed to be smiling, the kind of reassuring smile that puts you in a better mood just from seeing it and sets you up for the day, I know from the reaction of the people who knew her well that she was a lovely, kind person and that she'll be dearly missed.
Rest in peace Rebecca. ❤️"

"Although I did not know you personally Becca, my mum; the soul support for me, was a nurse who helped reassure your family. She came home devastated. Absolutely torn to pieces.
I talked to my best friend, a sister to me, Ally, she said you were the most kind and caring person, the most considerate human she had ever met. Someone with only amazing praise and utter sadness, she tried to comprehend just what had happened. A beautiful life cut short, my thoughts lie with your family; as I too know what such sudden and devastating news can bring. If at all, I can help anyone, I am here. Rest in peace, you talented, kind, beautiful person ❤️"

"Becca, you were a genuine, naturally beautiful and vibrant girl who I had the most amazing pleasure of being able to meet. I will miss our little altercations that provided me with such amusement and added a unique spark to my day that I couldn't have received from anyone else, you were exceptionally talented in every aspect (except maintaining balance) and you had the bravery to display that talent which is something I will forever admire. Writing this was hard because talking about you in the past tense will never feel right to me. I will miss you Becca. I will really miss you x"

"Rebecca was the most genuine, trust worthy, honest and truly kind person. It goes without saying but this has come as an awful shock to everyone and is so deeply upsetting to everyone who had the absolute pleasure of knowing. I don't think words can describe how much we all loved Becca and still do as she will always be close our hearts. All I can hope is that she is at peace and in a better place. I'm sending copious amounts of love to all friends and family. Rest in peace Becca ❤️"

"I first met Rebecca when I was in year 8 and she was in year 7. The moment I met Rebecca she came across as being the most kind and considerate person who would rarely be seen without a smile on her face when passed around school. Her thoughtful and beautiful ways made her an asset to be a part of anyone's day and I feel so honoured to have met her knowing what a lovely person she is and always will be. With all my love and sadness RIP Rebecca <3"

"Becca had always been a one of a kind girl, during our first years at Farlingaye I remember immediately becoming good friends with her. She was a person who was always bubbly and happy and spread that to whoever she was around, she had always been there for me and for a lot of other people. She was an extraordinary person, who was stunning inside and out. I remember when we went shopping at Westfield, and she made me try sushi, but in return she had to try McDonald's, and whilst I spat mine out Rebecca quite enjoyed hers.
She was willing to try and do anything.. Even though we weren't as close during the later years, she was still so important to me and to everyone else, she really was a treasure to everyone.
R.I.P Becca, you will be dearly missed but never ever forgotten ❤️"

"I first met Becca when I was in year 8 and she was in year 9. We danced together in 'breakers yard' (we were so funny, we couldn't do it!) And since then she would always smile at me around school and say hello... she was such a lovely girl and loved by so many. When I heard the news I was so shocked and was deeply saddened. Best wishes go to her family. RIP Becca ❤️"

"I think I speak on behalf of everyone that Rebecca De Roeper was truly a one of a kind girl. She was one of the few things good and pure in this world and will be sorely missed. She was always someone you could count on and her loyalty was second to none. She would always bring positivity to any situation wether it be through her unique laugh or her warming smile that could light up any room. She was the type of friend who would tell you how you looked nice even though you know that you didn't.  her constant reassurance and care would make you feel loved. She has definitely left her mark on the world, I will never forget you Becca and I hope to one day thank you for being the loveliest person I know and getting to have the pleasure of calling you a friend."

"When I first met Becca I knew that we would have the most amazing friendship and we definitely did. Becca was beautiful inside and out, she was always there for everyone and everyone loved her. Becca never failed to make us laugh, with her constant falling over and random spurts of singing. She had such determination in everything she did and I admired her so much for that. I love her more than words could discribe and I always will. She will always be here in spirit.
Lots of love, maddy x"

I was in the same form as her through year 7 to the end of year 9. And I knew enough to know that she was a very kind and caring girl, one always smiling and laughing I was very sad to hear what happened and know that everyone will miss her. And if anyone needs someone to talk to just message me. Rest in peace Rebecca. X"

Although I was never that close with Becca I valued her friendship to me so much and always kept it close to my heart how much of an impact she really had on all of us and anyone she ever met, i don't think I'll ever be able to forget her laugh as it was the best thing in the world, she definitely knew how to light up a room with it.

"I first met Rebecca when I was in year 6 on the bus to school. We would always sit next to each other and we would talk and laugh about crazy and hilarious things; I remember thinking how cool it was to sit next to a girl in the year above me. Becca was so lovely to me when I joined Farlingaye, she made sure I settled in and always came up to me and said hello and I remember how heartbroken I was that I wasn't allowed to get the same bus as her any more.
We were also dancers together in the lower school production of breakers yard and we would end up in fits of giggles for most of the rehearsals because lets say my dancing was not the best! We ended up on the same bus again last year,and with out a doubt she never failed to make me laugh and smile.

Becca was honestly one of the kindest people I have ever met, her amazing laugh will never be forgotten and our friendship and memories will always make me smile. Loads of Love Becca, rest in peace xoxo"

"I wasn't very close to Becca but I still considered her a friend, one clear memory of her I have was when we were on activities week together and we went skiing, she was next to me and we went down together but she got to the bottom before me, the only problem was I didn't know how to stop and she was laughing so much she didn't hear me calling her to watch out. So we ended up colliding and falling to the ground together in pits of laughter! I am always going to remember her smile which could light up a room as soon as she walked in, I am going to truly miss her. Rest in peace Becca xxx"
