Hundreds support Dolly Everett's great grandmother in emotional service

A day after a memorial for Dolly Everett who took her own life following online bullying, crowds have supported the outback teenager's great grandmother during a Queensland service.

The Toowoomba service was originally meant to be a small gathering for Vieda to grieve the loss of the 14-year-old.

But a sea of blue flooded Our Lady of Lourdes church to support the great grandmother.

"You'll never be forgotten, that simply I will be. As long as I am living, I'll carry you with me," a poem Vieda wrote said.

Friends and strangers reflected on Dolly and her battle that has touched the nation's heart.

The crowd was also read the same eulogy Dolly's father shared at Friday's memorial in Katherine.

"Promise to live better each day for having known this beautiful child," family friend Jackie Price read.

There was an outpouring of grief from friends and family from Warwick and beyond.

"No one would believe that one say out occasion like this would touch the hearts of so many people," Father John Quinlan said.

Family and friends are now united to denounce bullying and share Dolly's Dream.

"I'm a cowgirl in heaven, with my horse by my side. If anything happens, we're ready to ride," Family friend Hayley Maudsley read out.
