Dolly Everett farewelled by hundreds of mourners in Katherine

The social media campaign launched following Dolly's death

"May we please ask for some time to celebrate the life of our much-loved daughter Dolly".

Hundreds of mourners gathered at the Casuarina Street Public School in Katherine on Friday to farewell Dolly, with supporters heeding the call to wear the 14-year-old's favourite colour, blue.

'Angels ride the fastest horses and dance under the prettiest rainbows, ' the order of service read.

Dolly's parents, Tick and Kate Everett, remembered the child as the "kindest, caring, attractive soul" who cared for animals and always showed compassion to children younger than her.

Dolly's body was cremated in a private ceremony before the service.

He had taken to Facebook earlier this week to suggest the people who relentlessly harassed his daughter should attend her memorial.

"Firstly if by some chance the people who thought this was a joke and made themselves feel superior by the constant bullying and harassment see this post, please come to our service and witness the complete devastation you have created".

Those in attendance said "everyone" inside was in tears.

Katrina says her daughter doesn't have the app, but was "shattered" after seeing a message written about her saying she should "kill herself".

'The kids that bullied her are from Warwick.

"I screamed in sideways and there she was".

Even Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull paid tribute to her this week.

"We don't want another family to go through what we are going through", Tick Everett said in the town of Katherine on Friday.

Numerous mourners in attendance already had bumper stickers reading #doitfordolly.

Mr Everett said the family was overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of support.

"It is sad. There's probably thousands of kids who've already done this", he said. We'd like to thank those people who couldn't be with us today. It is up to us to stand up when we see any kind of bullying behaviour.

One in seven Australian children are often subjected to cyber bullying, according to the National Centre Against Bullying, and youth suicide rate in the Northern Territory, where Dolly was from, is among the highest in Australia.

Paying tribute to Dolly, Mr Turnbull said his "heart breaks for Dolly and her family". They plan to establish a trust to be called Dolly's Dream.

"It won't bring our Dolly back, but it may just prevent the loss of another young life.

We need young people to report it to a trusted adult".

The family shared one of her recent drawings - a skinny figure bent over backwards under the words, "speak even if your voice shakes".

"This powerful message tells the dark, scary place our attractive angel had travelled to", the family said.
