Flowers for Brittney Rose Kelly

FLOWERS will be released into the waters off Torquay Beach tomorrow in honour of the Hervey Bay teenager who lost her life following a car accident last week.

Brittney Rose Kelly, a 17-year-old Urangan High School graduate, crashed into a power pole on Boundary Road last Monday.

She was airlifted to Brisbane's Princess Alexandra Hospital where she died three days later.

A funeral will be held tomorrow morning followed by a memorial service in her honour at Torquay Beach.

Brittney's family and friends are invited to attend the funeral at the Hervey Bay Crematorium on Urraween Road at 11am.

Anyone who wants to pay their respects to the Booral teenager can attend the memorial service at Torquay Beach at 2pm.

Yesterday tributes continued to flow in on the RIP Brittney Rose Facebook page.

Since the page was created on the weekend almost 900 people have joined.

Yesterday a family friend posted a message of thanks on behalf of Brittney's mother Robyn.

“Britty has obviously touched the lives of so many people,” it said.

“The support and kind messages will be appreciated by Britty's family...rest baby.”
