Sarah Cafferkey

SLAIN Victorian woman Sarah Cafferkey has been remembered as a girl who could raise your spirits with just a glance.

Mourners - dressed in pink - leave a church in Bacchus Marsh, west of Melbourne, at Sarah Cafferkey's funeral on November 26, 2012. Sarah's mother Noelle Dickson is at the centre of frame with Sarah's dog Sprockett.

More than 1000 mourners packed the Uniting Church in her home town of Bacchus Marsh for her funeral on Monday. Many carried pink balloons or were dressed in pink, the 22-year-old's favourite colour.

Among the mourners were her mother, Noelle Dickson, father Adrian Cafferkey and beloved dog Sprocket.

Delivering the eulogy, Mr Cafferkey described Sarah as 'her mother's world' and a fun loving girl who left a positive impact on countless friends.

'One measure of a person is the way they positively impact on others and today you need only look around at this gathering to see the number of people she reached in her short life,' he said.
'Sarah could raise your spirits with just a glance.

'When Sarah walked into your life it lit up. She radiated an energy that lifted your whole being.'
Residents of the town, about 50km northwest of Melbourne, decorated shops, restaurants and a pub along the main street with pink balloons.

Mourners released bundles of balloons as Ms Cafferkey's casket was carried from the church to the song Somewhere over the Rainbow.

A court has heard Ms Cafferkey was stabbed multiple times at a flat in Bacchus Marsh on November 10 before her body was moved to Point Cook in Melbourne's outer southwest.
Police say her body was found in a wheelie bin on November 18.

Steven James Hunter, 47, of Bacchus Marsh, has been charged with the murder. Two other men were questioned and released without charge.
