TRIBUTES are pouring in for a 'lovely, bubbly, caring' Emma Bright who died last week aged 20.

Daughter of Judith and Robin, sister to Michelle, Rachel, Leigh-Anne, Jason and Paul, Emma, of Phear Avenue, died suddenly last Friday after what her family describe as a 'difficult' illness.

Scores of friends have turned to internet sire Facebook to leave messages of love and sorrow to their friend Emma, a former Beacon Primary School pupil

Allison Lillico said: "Why is it only the good die young? Last week I was persuading you to stay at college and that you'd be fine with the course because you're a smart lass. What a difference a week makes. Heaven has another angel and a smart and funny one at that."

Kirsty Jordan posted: "You were a really lovely person - always had this massive smile on your face which lit up any room. Rest in Peace Emma."

Abby Middleton added: "You are going to be missed so much. We had some good times girl, I'll never forget them. Take care of yourself and remember you are loved so much."

Aaron Bessant wrote: "No person is truly alone. Those who live no more, whom we loved, echo in our thoughts, our words, our hearts. And what they did, and who they were becomes a part of all that we are, forever."

Leighanne Mingo said: "So sad. Such a waste of life. You were the only sister I ever had and I was loving getting to know you better. I know the angels are watching over you now. You will be sadly missed."

A church service will be held at Withycombe Church at 3.45pm on Tuesday November 25.

This will be followed by a celebration of Emma's life at the Heavitree Arms, in Exmouth.

Anyone who knew Emma is welcome to attend.
