Husband of Dreamworld victim Cindy Low shares heartbreaking letter at her funeral.

NSW woman Cindy Low was today remembered at an emotional funeral service on the state’s Central Coast, nine days after she was killed in a tragic accident at Dreamworld.

More than 150 of the 42-year-old’s loved ones filled the Palmdale Crematorium to farewell their beloved Cindy, alongside her husband Matthew and their two children, Kieran, 10, and Isla, 6, who were sitting in the front row, reports The Daily Telegraph.

Kieran was on the Thunder River Rapids ride with his mother last Tuesday when their raft flipped, killing Low, and three other passengers: Kate Goodchild, 32, her brother, Luke Dorsett, 35, and his partner Roozbeh Araghi, 38.

Goodchild’s daughter also survived the accident, which is still under investigation by authorities.

Those who spoke about Low at this afternoon’s service painted a picture of a sensitive, loving, social woman, who loved good coffee and good wine, but most of all loved her little family.

“Cindy loved her family unconditionally, Mat was her soul, Kieran and Isla her heart,” said her Aunt Helen, according to The Daily Telegraph.

Through all this, Matthew remained stoic, until a photograph of Low on their wedding day brought him to tears.

His own words – a letter to his beloved partner – were read by a close friend.

“Dear Cindy, you are the love of my life,” it began.

“You made me laugh every day … you brought clarity, fun and enjoyment into my life.

“Some of your ideas were crazy but that’s all part of the adventure.”

The couple, both from New Zealand, met at a party in Auckland 1997, before settling in NSW.

Matthew's letter spoke of their overseas travels, her "terrible navigation skills" and their "greatest adventure" - their two kids, according to The Telegraph.

"You were always so protective of them, supporting their dreams and their desires to be the best they could.

"You rocked our world and we enjoyed every moment.

"I promise to continue your gift of celebrating every moment. You will always be there. We love you.”

The Gold Coast theme park will remain closed until all four of the victims' funerals have been held.
