    Dolly Everett: 'She had a smile that could lighten your day'.

    A long-time friend of Amy "Dolly" Everett, who took her own life after months of bullying, is urging anyone who may be struggling to reach out and seek help.
    The death of the 14-year-old, who was the face of Akubra hats, has drawn attention to cyber-bullying, with many mourners urging that more support is needed.
    "I just think that it's important now that they speak up, speak up even if your voice shakes, as Dolly would say," Taniesha Southeron told TODAY this morning.


    "Out of all the sadness that the loss of our daughter has brought to our lives, we feel that through losing Dolly we would like to help other families by making an awareness of bullying and harassment that some people are sadly subject to.
    "Before Dolly died, she completed a drawing and wrote the words, 'stand up, speak even if your voice shakes'. This powerful message tells the dark, scary place our beautiful angel had travelled to.


    Dolly’s parents have taken the extraordinary step of asking their daughter’s bullies to attend the funeral service today.
    "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," her father Tick wrote on Facebook.

    Dolly’s parents’ plea: ‘We’ve got to start talking about it’


    The family of teenager Amy “Dolly” Everett have opened up with a heartbreaking message they want all Australians to hear.

    THE father of tragic Northern Territory teenager Amy “Dolly” Everett says Australians need to start speaking to their children about bullying and depression.

    Tick Everett, with wife Kate and daughter Megan at his side, said the conversation needed to happen before any more young lives were lost.

    Dolly died last week after relentless online bullying led her to take her own life just weeks before returning to school.

    “We’ve got to start talking about it,” Mr Everett said.
    “We’ve got to educate the little kids, we’ve got to educate the teachers. Everybody is somebody’s daughter, somebody’s son. Nobody deserves to lose it.”

    UPDATE: AMY ‘DOLLY’ EVERETT’ has been remembered as a cheeky, fun loving girl who adored animals.

    Mr Everett recalled a young Dolly, at about 6-years-old ordering his boss to get her an icypole.

    Thousands have paid tribute to the former face of Akubra Hats, "Dolly" Amy Jayne Everett, who took her own life at just 14 after being bullied. PICTURE: AAP Image/Facebook, Akubra Hats“That was Dolly to a tee. She knew what she wanted and wasn’t afraid to go and get it,” he said.
    The nickname Dolly came from the day of her birth, Mr Everett said.
    “I screamed in sideways and there she was. Kate looked down and said she was just like a perfect little china doll,” he said.
    “Dolly just stuck.”
    The little girl who was the face of Akubra “loved anything with four legs and a heartbeat”.
    “If she could poddy it or raise it, she would,” Mr Everett said of his daughter’s habit of adopting orphaned animals.
    “Sometimes much to my disgust, I’d come home and there would be another poddy on the veranda. But that was Dolly,” he said.
