This week in Berkeley, a church ceremony will celebrate the memory of the six young people whose lives were so cruelly taken from them when the fourth-floor balcony they were standing on gave way on that fateful night last June.

Such ceremonies are part of the lengthy grieving process that the families of the dead and survivors of the tragedy have had to endure.

It has been an unimaginable ordeal for all involved. But one year on, there is little sign of any form of closure.
