IT WAS hard for the grieving family of Destiny Thompson, the 12-year-old who died in a road accident last month, to let her go into eternity yesterday.

As hundreds gathered at St Philip’s Parish Church to say farewell to the Springer Memorial School first former, a common theme ran through the 90-minute funeral service: Destiny was a child with a great future inspired by her love for God.
