    'They were all my heart, my life, my babies': Devastated mother tells of
    heartbreak at funeral for four children killed by house party arsonist
    (Daily Mail)
    Reece Smith, 19, four-year-old twin girls Holly and Ella Smith, and Jordan Smith, aged two, all died from smoke inhalation after a fire broke out at their bungalow home in Freckleton, Lancashire, during their mother’s 36th birthday party last month.
    Inside a packed church, Ms Smith told the congregation: ‘Reece, you were not only my first born but my best friend, my rock, big brother to your little sisters and brother.

    ‘Holly and Ella, you were my beautiful girls. I remember the day I had my scan and they told me I was having twins and nearly fell off the bed.

    'You were happy cheeky girls who played happily together sometimes but when you fought, you were terrible.

    'You blamed each other for everything and when I questioned you, you both blamed Banger (Jordan).

    ‘Jordan, you were my little man with piercing blue eyes and a very cheeky personality.

    ‘You were all my heart, my life, my babies. God bless my little man Jordan, my beautiful twins Holly and Ella and Reece my hero.’
