On the morning of Tricia’s funeral there is a sombre atmosphere in the village. Everyone worries about Marlon as he busies himself with last minute preparations. As the funeral procession begins on the main street, Marlon is deeply overwhelmed by the number of people who have turned up to pay their last respects. He tries to compose himself as Ashley begins the service.

Having struggled to find the words to communicate her feelings for her late daughter, Steph attempts to deliver a heart-felt speech.

From YTV EMMERDALE Sunday 18 January 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Steph (LORRAINE CHASE) bids farewell to her daughter.

Unable to contain her grief, she breaks down and Turner rushes up to comfort his distraught daughter. The congregation watches sadly, as he holds her tightly and she sobs into his arms.

Once the service is over and Tricia has been laid to rest, an unfamiliar face introduces herself to Turner and gratefully informs him that Tricia’s heart was donated to her daughter. Turner is touched that something good has come out of one person’s tragedy.

Meanwhile, Charity has other things on her mind. She is petrified about the forthcoming trial. The pressure is all too much as all her worries for the trial come spilling out and she admits to Cain that she is terrified she’ll get life behind bars.

Having been away in Spain, Dawn has no idea that Terry has left the hospital and is speechless when she returns home to find him there waiting for her, having cooked a candlelit dinner. Although he is very unsteady, she is overwhelmed by the progress he has made in her absence.

The villagers walk through the streets with Tricia's coffin Marlon is manic ensuring Tricia's send-off to be perfect, from her favourite quiche to the choir singing Take That. Steph, however, can't lose herself in organising and is distraught about the funeral. When Alan finds her in the cafe she announces she won't even go to the service. The whole village gathers in the street to watch the procession to the church where Diane pays tribute to Tricia, saying she was like a daughter. She spots Steph sneaking in at the back and calls her up to pay a tearful tribute to her daughter.

Meanwhile, Bob manages to distract Terry from the trial and funeral when Dawn returns. She can't believe he's moving around and has made soup.
The Dingles bid fairwell to Tricia Later at the wake, Zak has enough of Charity and Cain's bickering and takes them outside to calm down, particularly when Charity had promised to make up with Cain in order to get Debbie to come. Lisa makes them apologise for upsetting Debbie and the three go off home to get ready for the trial. Back inside, Eric asks Steph to come back to work when she's ready, and she and Alan admit they just don't know how to cope without Tricia. A frazzled Marlon is rescued when Bernice creates a diversion and he slips away to spend some time alone.
Charity breaks down on Cain as she is scared about the start of her trial Back at the house, Charity manages to calm Debbie down before she breaks down in tears. Cain had hoped for slightly more from the reconciliation, but comforts her as best he can. Charity can only see how the trial can go badly, when even Cain is testifying against her. She's worried Debbie won't even know her when she gets out - Chris has got his way and is going to make her suffer. Cain tries to fire up her cocky Dingle spirit, but she is convinced everything is out of her hands.
