A newlywed who died in a horror accident last week on Hamilton Island has been farewelled.
Only 10 days after getting married to Robbie Morgan, Marina Morgan while on her honeymoon suffered fatal injuries in a buggy accident.
Hundreds of mourners gathered at St Mary & St Merkorious Coptic Orthodox Church to say goodbye to the 29-year-old.
Her husband said on Saturday, “I can’t explain the sadness in my heart… my wife was loved… by so many and so many felt her, she taught kindness,”.
Mark Hanna, her brother, continued, “Marina will never be forgotten.”
His statement was accompanied by the words “Her beautiful soul, angelic smile and caring nature will always be remembered and hopefully burn within us forever.”
“I will see you soon Marina Rose Hannah Morgan. Until then, rest in paradise.”
Robbie announced a charity would be established in Marina’s honour to aid the most poor in an effort to preserve his wife’s legacy.
The Marina Morgan Foundation will be established in her honour, he added, “to bring love, hope, and goodwill around the world.”
The foundation has not yet been given a launch date.
On Hamilton Island, the buggy was being driven by the woman’s husband Robbie when it crashed.
The buggy is thought to have tipped over while he was making a U-turn, inflicting fatal injuries on Marina.
She is alleged to have been driving without a seatbelt.
