Family says goodbye to Kaelah Marlow
The family of a teenager who died in a shark attack have thanked the Waihī Beach community for the “overwhelming support” they have received.

Kaelah Marlow, 19, died last Thursday at Bowentown Beach after being attacked in the water.

In a photo posted on a public social media community group, the Hamilton teenager’s plain wooden casket can be seen decorated with a heart-shape wreath made out of shells.

Messages from friends and family were written on the lid, with a small wooden butterfly also visible.

Her mother Michelle Marlow thanked the Bowentown and Waihi communities for their support in the post.

"Today we farewelled our Beautiful girl. Once again Rob, Georgia and myself would like to say many thanks for the overwhelming support we have received from Bowentown and the Waihi community," she posted.

In an earlier post, she thanked the community and Surf Life Saving for their support.

She also thanked the person, or persons, who had left the shell heart on the beach and said they had taken it to Marlow’s funeral.

Marlow is believed to be from Australia, and moved with family to New Zealand from Perth five years ago.

Her funeral was on Wednesday and her death has been referred to the Coroner.
