All I can say is Happy Birthday, the fair was amazing, and made even more special the fact it was in your honour. I hope you saw it from wherever you are With lots of love to you, and your family xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hannah, you would have loved the fair, the effort put into it by all your friends was a true example of how much you meant to us all and how dearly you are missed.Today, on your special day, everyone in this group was thinking about you and hoping that wherever you are, you have a wonderful 17th birthday. I am thinking of you always xxxx

Happy Birthday Hannah ♥I very much enjoyed my experience as a pirate today, but I really really wish it had been with you rather than for you. All my love xxxx

Frankie Tobi (London) wrote at 8:06pm on January 31st, 2008
After reading through some of these posts, I think the fact that you are still very much thought about by everyone, every day just goes to show how very special you were. In just under 17 years, you made more of an impact on this world than most people can ever hope to in an entire life time. We will never know why some people are taken away from us earlier than others, but in the last few months I have come to realise that it is what we have done in the time given to us than what we could have done in the future. Where ever you are today, Hannah, I think that you were watching over everyone at the 6th form fare, I hope that somehow you will have seen this group and all of the messages of love which people have. Have a Happy Birthday, Hannah much love as always and forever xxxxx

Dearest Hannah, Yet again, i beat you by one day! i loved the way we were so nearly twins with our birthdays being only a day apart. I think about you and your beaming face so often and the huge effect you had on all of these people. I also think of your family every day and how incredibly brave they are being - their strength has been a source of inspiration to me as i've been ill over the last few months. I wish i could have been well enough to get to your funeral - i would have loved to pay you every bit of tribute you so clearly deserved for being the most happy and joy-spreading person i've ever known. I wish you could have been around for longer Hannah, but I'm sure wherever you are you're making everyone else around you laugh and smile as you used to do every day at putney. Happy 17th Birthday "Henry", All my love, "Tallulah" x

I think of you all the time Hannah - but especially so today. What I like best about this group is that it proves you will always be with us, and remembered by so many. The joy that you gave to people - and the love that your memory continues to provide -will be your legacy. Keep shining Hannah - and we will endeavour to keep shining for you. Love always, Chlobo xxxxxxx

Wishing you a Happy Birthday sailing the seven seas, today just proves how much you are missed, the weeks of work by your friends made this years 6th form fair fantastic and I know you would be so proud of the money raised in your honour, and you would have loved the effort put into the pirate costumes!

Hannah, still can't believe i'm writing this rather than celebrating your birthday with you. 17, you would be driving and on the way to becoming a F1 racing driver, an ambition of yours! Rememberin your previous birthdays and watchin the video of your birthday party (maybe your 9th?) at your house with barney last year it was so funny, our dancing was not the greatest! Think of you and miss you everyday. Happy Birthday, wherever you are i hope its a good one. All my love Fizz xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Emily Rivett (Putney High School) wrote at 12:10am on January 31st, 2008
I was remembering today, thinking about birthdays, about the first time I met Hannah which was at someone's birthday party. I decided on first glance that I did not like her, the infantile reason being she smiled too much ( by the way on discussing this later we discovered that the feeling had been mutual and she had also been sure she wouldn't like me). The first day at Putney this all changed over a break time involving some imaginary trip to boarding school i think (inspired no doubt by Enid Blyton) Over the years she became one of my best friends through a shared love of fairies, make-believe, discovery - even just within Luttrell Avenue garden - and fun. I wish that tomorrow we could all see that smile again tomorrow. I know its a cliche but i believe that Hannah packed as much into her nearly 17 years as most people manage in a life time. Happy 17th Hannah - we all love and miss you xxxxxxxx

Hannah, there are no words which i can say that will stop me thinking that you should be here celebrating your birthday tomorrow with all your friends and family. However i do like to think that your in a pirate heaven and instead of learning how to drive a car maybe tomorrow you will be able to have your first lesson of how to sail a pirate ship which to be honest was probably one of your dreams. Not a day goes by when i don't think about you and how much fun we used to have together by those rugby pitches watching all those boys! I hope you have a great birthday and remember don't crash! You will always have a place in my heart and i will never forget you. All my love xxxxxx

Hannah, i went back to visit putney the other day and i know this sounds stupid but i kind of just expected you to jump out at me and greet me with a hug and the handshake, like we said we always would :D we're all still thinking about you all the time, and i keep remembering wonderful things about you and it makes me smile every time it happens. you're still with us all in everything we do. all my love forever xxxxxxx

Francesca Gibbs (Putney High School) wrote at 7:05pm on January 28th, 2008
I couldn't fit everything in so here is the rest... I also loved her vain attempts to make the sixth form more environmentally friendly and her dismay at the lack of plastic bags in her recycling draw. However her enthusiasm was infectious and I don’t think that anyone else could have had the same success. I also remember several scenes connected with choir especially the legendary glam rock disco!!! Hannah it is hard not to concentrate on what you could have been and could have done but this just highlights how much of an impact you had and how much you achieved. To have touched so many people was amazing and you will definitely never be forgotten. An early Happy Birthday from me and take care of yourself. Lots of love, now and always xxx

Francesca Gibbs (Putney High School) wrote at 7:04pm on January 28th, 2008
Like most other people I have been debating what to say for a long time but I am listening to my Ipod and Hallelujah just came on and of course my mind immediately went to Hannah. My memories of Hannah are very random and probably don’t seem like much but I thought I would share them with you. The thing that used to make me laugh the most was that when I became Deputy Head girl she commented that she would have to curtsy and then thought that it would be hysterical to curtsy every time she saw me. It stuck and nearly every time I saw her she would do it accompanied by that huge grin that she had. I also always thought that one day I would be able to do the same to her and tease her about it. It was also a lot of fun making toast with her on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, lamenting at the lack of spreadable butter and planning various toppings for our toast which we then couldn’t be bothered to bring into school.

Hey hun, sorry i havnt been on here sooner, part of me just couldn't, but i thought with you birthday coming up i should write a little message, so this is something my dad wrote, hope you like it; Full stop; we learn it when we are four, The sentence is at an end, no more, A break and then perhaps the next word, Sometimes none, like the last chord, How can it mean so much, when it is so little? So strong, so final, from such a small scribble, It was meant to be a novel, but was a short story, A tragic end, instead of expected fame and glory, I will cherish every paragraph and chapter that I shared, With a warm, fun loving friend who always cared, Your memories I will remember until the day I drop, We will love you forever, Hannah, Full Stop i saw sweeney todd the other day n im sure u would have still loved johnny depp with his badger hair as much as i did!! hope you're doing well up there and miss and love you forever xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I'm so sorry we didn't stay close friends Hannah, I keep thinking of all the games we used to play when we were younger and I remember how much fun we had. Of course I'll never forget the time we found that piece of granite in my garden, i'm pretty sure you won't either, you always used to mention it to me when I saw you at school! Anyway I just want to apologise for not making enough of an effort with you, and I hope you don't resent me and just remember the good times we had together. lots of love x x x x

I remembered something last night whilst thinking about hannah and the many summers we spent together in our grandparent's garden. The adults were talking economics and i didn't know what inflation meant...hannah (aged12) explained it to me. I was four years older than her!! This memory, be it tiny, reminded me of just how intelligent and perceptive hannah was. I will always endevour to be more like her (and i will never forget what inflation is) love you! xx

This will probably not mean a lot to many reading this, but it is a very fond memory that I have of being on holiday with Hannah, we wrote our own parody and drove our friends bonkers with singing it. Hannah wrote the lyrics down for me on the last day and i still have them pinned up in my room; "This ain't nothing but a strawberry jam made from the finest english strawberries this ain't nothing but a strawberry jam we're gona eat it as much as we can mmmmmm tastes good mmmmmm strawberry jam tastes nice mmmmmmmmm looks good mmmmmmmmmm did you notice that we used tastes twice" May these lyrics bring nothing but fond memories of Hannah to those who know what I'm talking about! All my love to the family, Hannah really was an incredible person! x x

everyday on my way to school i pass many putney high uniformed girls, i think of Hannah. seeing her walk down the upper Richmond road in the opposite direction- home. bumping into her at putney leisure center both picking people up. in ballet lessons laughing and copying her because i had no idea what i was doing.not a day goes past when i dont think of her and i just wish i could turn my tears into smiles of memories. but you just cant, not the way she was- an amazing confident and smiley person who included everyone and who everyone loved so much. always thinking of you. forever and always. love Fiona xox

I was standing on the most beautiful beach watching the sun go down and i saw on the horizon the most amazing pirate ship. It was just crossing the sun as it was setting and it was such a stunning sight. I instantly thought of you standing proudly on it sailing the sea, giving me a cheeky smile...we all miss you so much my dear one, i'm trying all the things you taught me - im even listening to mika and the hoosiers - me! after the countless times you tried to persuade me they were actually good and yes i am beginning to see your on my way to our dream, almost pulled my hair out at my interview - i knew you would have been so calm and collected - much better than me, but i also knew you were there guiding me. I hope you are at peace now sailing the seas on your beautiful ship, just like the one i saw. Love, as always Iona xxxxx

I'm sorry this message is so long overdue-it should not have surprised me i suppose that it could have taken me so long to even begin to collect my thoughts or think of any words that can come close to expressing how truly incredible Hannah was and how much she will be missed by everyone. I remember vividly going to ballet classes every week with Hannah and ever since then always admiring the verve and enthusiasm she had for life and everything in it, from recycling to pirates! I'll remember her every time I sit down to chair 6th form committee and think of her every time I find it difficult to talk to new people because she always seemed to find it so easy. I know that anyone would be overjoyed to have raised someone half as admired and loved by so many people She will always remain there in those hearts and minds x

I added a picture a while ago of Hannah on the choir tour in her crazy rock chic outfit. She definitely knew how to have a good time!! And that is the way I continue to remember her. She was so original and generally amazing. She never ceases to impact my life - my thoughts will always be with her and her family. I will have a special place for her in my heart forever.

It's hard to find the right words, and english is not my first language, but I' ll try to do my best. Hannah,I only met you once, last summer, but it was enough to understand you were unique and extraordinary. Your smile really touched my heart. You have so many friends and so many wonderful comments are made about you. You were the kind of person our world is missing and it's a tragedy you're gone so soon. My little sister have always talked to me about you since the day she met you and your family. I can easily understand how she loves you so much as you're always on my mind even if I saw you only once. My thoughts are with your brothers and parents... Repose en paix petit ange

Margery Infield (Putney High School) wrote at 1:01am on December 30th, 2007
And if Hannah was watching over her funeral, I'm sure she would have chuckled to herself: her beautiful pirate ship of flowers, the stories of caesar salad and the faries and the fact that she finally managed to get us out of the choir uniform that she hated with a passion! I shall never be able to eat caesar salad again without smiling to myself with visions of Hannah feeding the faries at the bottom of her garden. xxxx

Margery Infield (Putney High School) wrote at 12:54am on December 30th, 2007
My most vivid memories of Hannah are from our choir tour to Lisbon. I remember her running up and down the corridor with excitment when there was the glam rock disco. Her outfit (as always!) and her dancing were memorably eccentric and simply fabulous. We also had so many laughs at the monastery we visited, posing for photos in the cloisters (memories of year 7 History!) and the huge fireplaces. In the freetime we were allowed afterwards, Hannah and some of her friends (who were all in the year above me) kidnapped me (like any self respecting pirate) and forced me to risk life and limb by charging across the main ring road in order to go to a cake shop on the other side of the road! What I only see now and what astounds me is that in the four years that I sat next to Hannah in choir, I can not think of a single rehearsal during which she did not make me smile, either through her general exuberance or her sacasm about choir.

hannah, when ever i think of something to write i always think its not good enough or not the right thing to say so ill try mybest to do you justice. the thing i rgret most is that i didnt know you better because everyone that knew you well and jut knew you loved you and i havent ever heard a bad word about you and at a girl school thats pretty incredible. whenever i saw you you had a smile on your face youd always ay hi to me if we were around eachother and there was an awkward silence i wasnt one of your best friend but you had the amazing talent of just talking to everyone being nice to everyone and never making anyone feel uncomfortable. you had so many talents and SO many friends and i dont think iv ever seen as much love as you could see from the whole of putney and central london when they came to your funeral..ill really miss you around school your always on peoples minds and everyday something nice is said about you somewhere in the school or amongst our friends....

Today I dug out the old compilation CD you made me back in Year 9... The disc is covered in your doodles and 'Little Britain' quotes... You filled it with OPM and plenty more great tracks that you thought I'd like... I just burst into tears when I saw that one track was 'Time Of Your Life' by Green Day, played at your funeral the other week... I also had a dream about you last night - that somehow you came back and visited us all, just for a day. Although that was just a dream, I do believe that you're watching over us. I've been thinking about you so much this Christmas. My thoughts have been so with your family. xXx

To the Kings, I know there can never be a right time to lose a loved one, but my thoughts and prayers are with you especially at this Christmas time. I pray for peace in each of your hearts and in your household. I also wanted to say directly to you all that this group is such a testimony to Hannah's life; truthfully good memories and people who didn't personally know her leaving comments. Not only is this a testimony to her life, but to you, her family. I believe that family have such a large role in how we turn out to be and Hannah was above all, such a warm-hearted young lady which I think you can take pride in. Once again, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Jessica

Dearest Hannah, I heard all about this bright red dress you were going to wear at mine and seeing Miss Stella mention it I thought I would say I am so sorry I didn't get to see it, although I know you would have looked gorgeous! I hope where ever you are you're watching over your amazing family and friends and seeing just how much of an impact you made on so very many different people's lives. I thought about you today at the Carol Service and your warm voice you loved to share, you will always be in my thoughts you wonderful, wonderful girl. All my love xxxx

Hannah,I loved our chats on the side of the rugby field pretending that we knew exactly what was happening when infact we hadn't a clue as we had been commenting how gay all the boys looked or how long it was to tea. I tried my hardest to sort out your love life(i know you know what i am talking about) i guess my meddling skills aren't very good! I am so happy that my last memory of you is you showing me your gorgeous red dress which you were so excited to wear to Georgie's party. I will never forget you and i am so glad that i was able to come into Ben's life and meet you and your lovely family. Life at the moment feels very hard and the future feels so uncertain but i know that i will learn to appreciate every day and not take things for granted. You will always be the girl who wore a tartan dress and purple converse and who i never told how it never matched. You will always have a place in my heart and i hope that as an angel you can guide and look after us. xxxxx

These are the lyrics to the last duet Hannah and I sang together, for the Music Festival... Very beautiful & moving so I thought I'd share them: "There is a place I call my own Where I can stand by the sea, And look beyond the things I've known, And dream that I might be free. Like the bird above the trees Gliding gently on the breeze, I wish that all my life I'd be Without a care and flying free. But life is not a distant sky Without a cloud, without rain. And I can never hope that I Can travel on without pain Time goes swiftly on its way, All too soon we've lost today. I cannot wait for skies of blue Or dream so long that life is through So life's a song that I must sing, A gift of love I must share . And when I see the joy it brings, My spirits soar through the air. Like that bird up in the sky , Life has taught me how to fly. For now I know what I can be And now my heart is flying free." ♥xxxx

All my love. Rest in peace.

A friend of mine posted this on my wall and i just thought i should share it with everyone. You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see her, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Just to say that the service was so beautiful yesterday and it was such an amazing way for everyone to remember Hannah. There were so many people there which just goes to show how loved and cherished Hannah was and i thought that what everyone said was so lovely. I will never foget the ten years we were at school together and the joy Hannah brought in with her and shared every day xx

I wish you could have witnessed the strength of your amazing brothers Hannah - they really did you justice. All your family and friends shared some truly wonderful stories and I feel like I know even more about you now. You left us all so early but it seems in that short time you touched more hearts than others do in 90 years on this planet. Rest in peace little pirate x x x x x

Hannah, je garderai toujours cette image de toi entrain de danser de tout coeur sur la musique de Billy Elliot dans la chambre de Ben, comme toujours le sourire aux levres et la joie de vivre qui se lisait dans tes yeux.. J ai seulement partage qlq semaines avec toi, mais elles ont suffit a me rendre compte de la fille exceptionnelle que tu etais et que l on gardera tous en memoire. Jamais je ne t'oublierai..

I'm so grateful I was able to grow up with you and watch turn into the beautiful girl you were, when I saw you on the tube recently you looked absoloutely stunning.

Hannah, I've never been very good with words, hence I've held off so long before writing this, but I had to say just how much you will be missed and are already missed. What I cannot write I am trying to put into song, and whatever plane of existence you are currently on, I hope you know that I will never quite be able to do you justice. For the Kings as a whole, I love you all dearly and will be eternally grateful to have been at the funeral today. In soaking up the tears I have finally found a use for my fringe. Love, xxxxx.

I didn't know hannah but i am good friends with her brother ben. Having attended the service today I can see that she was an amazing girl, with a lot of potential, and an amazing group of friends. I'd like to thank Ben and his family for the service today. It was moving, however there was a really positive vibe and you could see the outstanding love and support that everyone has for hannah and her family. Best wishes xxx

Emily Pendleton (University of Leeds) wrote at 11:43am on December 17th, 2007 I have so many memories of Hannah. She was a beautiful, kind, talented and admirable person whose mark will be engraved on this world and in our hearts forever. My fondest memories of Hannah date back to the days where she could be found frollicking in the gardens at Filkins, dressed as her faviourite Disney princess - singing, dancing and utterly content. She was happy, care-free and dazzling as a young child and even more so as a young lady. Hannah Banana - you are sorely missed, deeply loved and never forgotten. x
