HEARTBREAKING: 3-MONTH-OLD TODDLER WHO DIED SUDDENLY IS LAID TO REST  IN A COFFIN PULLED BY A WHITE HORSE TO HER FUNNERAL
A three-month-old girl whose life was cut tragically short was carried to a heartbreaking funeral  in a tiny pink coffin on a horse-drawn carriage.
More than 200 mourners, many dressed in pink, gathered to watch Sydney-May Burge laid to rest after she died last month of sudden infant death syndrome.
Her pink-and-white coffin, adorned with an angel, was carried through her family's home town of Cinderford, Gloucestershire, in a carriage pulled by white horses.

St Stephen's Church, where the service was held, was decorated with pink ribbons, balloons and pictures of 'special' Sydney-May as relatives and family friends remembered her all-too-short life.
Among the mourners were mum Jemma, dad Steve and seven siblings Lauren, 17, Adam, 15, Rhys, nine, Theo, seven, McKenzie, five Kian, four, and Khai, two.
Rev. Mike Barnsley, who took the service, told those gathered: "As you already know, she was special.
"She developed very quickly for a child her age. She was always picking her head up to see who was there, with those big dark eyes.

"She always loved to meet new people and be hugged, a lot of you would have that experience.
"She had a cute infectious chuckle from six weeks old. She loved having her hands clapped. She was content. She very rarely cried."
