All my love. Em Xxx

Hannah you were the most amazing, joyous and bubbly person and always fantastic to be around. You had a beaming smile that was contagious to everyone you met and I am sure that wherever you are, you will continue to provide happiness. Happiness is the most important emotion to have and to cherish in my mind, and you brought so much of it to this Earth. You always made a great effort to speak to me on our long walks home, and you only had to say hello in order to brighten up my day. You told me several stories that kept me laughing for weeks. I can still remember them and will always treasure those memories that we shared. You brought a quality to this Earth that no one else can bring or ever will be able to bring in the future. An unforgettable quality. You could have not have been a more kind and genuine person. The inspiration that you have given me and will continue to give me is more than I could have ever hoped for. I will miss you dearly xxxxxxxx

Hannah King, the smiles and the laughs and our hopeless but ever determined harmonising in choir... The girl we all knew and loved and who chatted constantly, probably the only person i know who i genuinely couldnt say a bad word about taken so soon. No matter how much or how little we knew you Hannah, you have inspired us all and will never, ever be forgotten. Out of all the people in the world, to take you, someone so special and with so much to give, away from us is incomprehensible. When I spoke you to you on Wednesday i never dreamed that it would be the last time i would see you but as they say, Only the good ones die young, and you were far too good for this earth. You have left your handprint on my heart and you, your laugh and your blue coat will be with us all forever. I hope you are happy wherever you are, Putney High just aint the same without you and your bright blue coat :) God bless, Imi xxxxxxxxxx

I never really got the chance to know you very well but every time i met you, you were always cheerful and put a smile onto everyone's face. You were amazing. RIP Hannah xxx

Georgina Gullick (London) wrote at 10:25pm on December 10th, 2007 hannah. every time we met i just remember having endless discussion about our work experience and how much fun we'd had and how amazing it was. I have never met anyone who wanted to be a doctor as much as me, but you certainly did and were so prepared and excited for it. I will think of you every step of the way through beocming a doctor and remember you. it was an honour to have met such a wonderful person. i will always remember you, you'd have made the most amazng doctor ever xxxxxxx

this terrible news has opened floodgates to some of the fondest memories of my childhood. Hannah Spanner Banana Katy King will be always associated in my mind with: purple princesses, her wu tang clan hoodie, her purple punk boots that rachel gave her, caeser salad, swirly drawings, captain jack sparrow, pinafore pirates, st pauls fireworks, rise festival, scootering around on micro scooters in putney, fairthorne manor and your first boyfriend, who you wouldn't dump straight after he asked you out, even though we were all exasperatingly trying to explain that that was the POINT of having boyfriends: to dump them first! She was an unbelievably charming, special girl and one of the best people for random natters and will be missed madly by all of us.

Thanks for the times we had together, a long time ago I know, but our walks around putney and holland park, and our disco dates were things i won't forget. You truly were a kind and sensitive person, and I feel lucky that I knew you so well even if not recently. RIP xxx

Emmi Dodge (Putney High School) wrote at 9:45pm on December 10th, 2007 Hannah is one person i can never remember not knowing. Even back when she was in year 3 she was one of the nicest happiest people i have ever met. Just to see her would make you smile. I will always miss you Hannah and i think i can safeley say that you will never be forgotten

I didn't get the chance to see u that often but the times when we did, we had some amazing nights with lots of good memories and you never failed to put a smile on anyones face. Such a caring person who always made me laugh and who always had a smile on her face. You will be missed by so many people. RIP hannah xxx

I think that most people are affected as whenever they had a smile or warm hello from Hannah in the corridor, it really impacted everyone. She was always friendly whether you saw her in the street or in the corridor. By the number of people that have mourned for her, it is clear that she was truly unbelievable. We'll miss you, And you truly have inspired all of us! I believe Hannah was the linking between all age groups and was never shy to start up a conversation with someone she didnt know. Amazing. xxxxx

I didn't know hannah terrible well but every time i had the pleasure of talking to her, she was a genuienly lovely, smiley person who always had something funny to say and always managed to put a smile on your face. she was a warm and inspirational girl who will never be forgotten. judging by the number of posts here, it is obvious that hannah will be sorely missed. rip xxxx

From Serrie Meakins, Hannah was a star - from the first day I started teaching her in year 10, she was always happy, funny, positive....she alwasy did her homework, alway knew her stuff. She was a teachers dream! But she was such a sweet and good natured girl that it was clear the other girls loved her too. I shall miss her. We shall all miss her and the world will be a duller place without her in it.

I didn't know Hannah that well, but from what I did know, I found her to be one of the sweetest, friendliest people I have ever come across. She had an impact on so many people, however big or small. Rest In Peace, you will be missed so much. xxxxxx

Speaking with people today made me realise that in the near ten years i've known Hannah i've never heard her say a bad word to or about anybody. We should all learn from this amazing attribute of hers which she carried with such grace and happiness, nobody can come close to her warmth acceptance and constant cheerfulness. Our thoughts are with her family and friends who are being so strong at this unimaginable time. She is sorely missed and will never be forgotten, or the atmosphere and cheer she brought to everyone in a different way. Rest In Peace Hannah xxxxxxxxxx

Mrs J Stylianou (Putney Park School) remembers you from the age of five as the brightest button she ever met. I was privileged enough to have been your teacher and learnt more from you than I could ever have taught you. Thanks for the memories, I will cherish them forever. (Mr A Stylianou)

I did not know Hannah for long, but I did know that she was a genuinely kind-hearted person. She was always so happy and smiley, and would make you smile as well. Hannah, you were always full of energy and enthusiasm, I don’t know how you did it. You truly were a wonderful person who will be missed greatly. Rest In Peace Hannah, we will miss you xxxxx

Hannah touched all our hearts with her exceptionally bubbly and positive personality, she was a friend to everyone. Whether you knew her well or not, you couldn't help but smile when you saw her beautiful face. She had the ability to light up a room with her stunning voice, reaching out to us all. So pure of heart at such a young age, God felt she was ready to be in a better place. Rest in peace Hannah, you will never be forgotten. xxx

I was practicing at school the other day, and next door i heard a stunning version of 'Halleluia' and i wondered who it was. When i had finished, i looked in and saw it was Hannah singing. I had never heard her before but it was beautiful. (in fact, I secretly went home and tried to work out the chords!) I did not know her well, but she was lovely to talk to and I will not forget her beautiful voice. Rest in Peacexox

Hannah King was such a beautiful, talented and amazing person, to say the least. I remember rehearsing for the music showcase with her. I was taken a back by her rendition of Hallelujah which captivated the crowd and took everyone away from their stressful lives into a state of peace and serenity. When I think of Hannah, I see a beautiful girl always smiling. I see a girl with so much dedication & ambition, a girl with incredible talent, a girl who will never be forgotten by those she blessed with her friendship & love. If I close my eyes she is still with me. You have left such sweet memories in the hearts of so many. Hannah, I will always pray for you and your family. Rest In Peace. All my love, Kim xxx
