Memories of special girl live on; 'She was just an amazing child'.

Byline: KATIE DAVIES

HIDING two years of heartache, loved ones of teenager Jessica Train were today marking the second anniversary of her death.

Jessica's mum Ann was making a special visit to the grave, while former schoolpals held a special assembly in her memory.

The much-loved 15-year-old died at her home in Wallsend, North Tyneside, in April 2010.

Her death rocked the close-knit community and pupils from Monkseaton High School, where a bench and plaque still take pride of place to ensure her memory lives on.

Now, Ann will visit the grave and light a candle in her daughter's memory, to pay tribute to her daughter.

The 54-year-old, of Wallsend, said: "She was an absolutely amazing young girl with an amazing personality. She was just an amazing child. She was my whole life and she lit up my life.

"There is not a day goes by when I don't think about her. In my heart and head it doesn't feel like two years ago - it feels like just yesterday.

"I'm going to the crematorium like I normally do and then I'll be going into the church to light a candle. What else can you do.

"I know the schoolchildren will be having an assembly for her."

Jessica who lost her life two years would have been 18 in November and would have had plans to start university.

The talented and promising school girl longed to become a criminologist with the police. Ann said: "If she was still here she would have been at university now.

"She would have been living her life to the full like anybody else.

Youngsters from Monskseaton High School recently unveiled a bench in her memory and plaque inside the school, which includes her picture. They will be having a memorial assembly for Jessica today. Ann said: "The teachers have been amazing.

The children and staff in the school have been absolutely fabulous.

"I just want her to be remembered for who she was."
