What lovely tributes.

I agree AnnaEsse, brought a tear to my eye.

I can't begin to imagine what the grandparents and rest of the family are going through, what with the funerals and the parents being in custody accused of murder.

A whole family of children gone. I think the heartache of the tragedy will be with the family for as long as anyone remembers those children.

When I was at primary school, there was a family in our part of town who were very much like my family: quite poor, large working-class and close and caring. They, like us, never had very much at all in the way of material possessions. When the eldest of the children left school, he used his first week's wages to buy a rubber dinghy so that he could take the younger ones for the kind of treat they'd never had; paddling around on one of the small, local lochs. The family had never been on a holiday or been able to do such things as having fun on the water. Five or six of the kids went out in the dinghy. It capsized and all were drowned. The town remembers and the Philpott children will be remembered by those who knew them and by people of the town who nonetheless have been affected by the tragedy. God bless those children.

It was truly awful. The oldest lad was so caring towards the younger ones and had looked forward to earning some money and treating them.

The Philpott children reminded me of that family, though quite different circumstances, but both so tragic.

Beautiful tributes for children who had their whole lives in front of them. So, so sad.
I've just watched their little coffins with their names on each one, going into the church.
RIP little ones xx

Anna - what a tragic tale. How cruel life is and there's no explanations.

Just seen the funeral on Central news. Choked up.
