Tragic teen Nora leaves an enormous legacy of love

Editor's Viewpoint

Nora Quoirin came home in spirit yesterday to the Belfast church where she was baptised 15 years ago. The tragic teenager, who died in a Malaysian jungle resort while on holiday, was remembered fondly, not for the manner of her death but for the joy she brought in her short life to her extended families in Belfast, London and France.

Nothing can ease the pain her family feel at her loss and their puzzlement at exactly how she died. Yet the little girl called the "gruffest angel" in a poem by her mother left an enormous legacy of love to all who knew her. It is that love and the support of relatives and friends which will sustain the family in the years ahead.
