THE heartbroken son of murdered PCSO Julia James told her "goodbye for now but not forever" at an emotional funeral today.
The 53-year-old was bludgeoned to death near woodland in Snowdown, Kent, on April 27.
A private funeral for Julia took place today at Canterbury Cathedral in Kent.
Julia's daughter Bethan Coles teared up as she read a poignant poem at the service, which was livestreamed.
Her son Patrick Davis read an emotional eulogy as he called his mum "the most amazing woman" who would "go to the end of the earth to help anyone".
Patrick, 23, added: "She had the most infectious laugh and a huge heart and I am so pleased I had the pleasure of calling you my mother.
"Mum would light up a room with her smile as soon as she walked in. As she entered she would glow with positivity, love and warmth."
He added: "I miss you more and more every day mum but I know you are always near.
"I love you mum. Goodbye for now but not forever."
The PCSO, who worked with domestic violence victims at Kent Police, was earlier given a Guard of Honour outside Canterbury Police Station.
Well-wishers also lined the streets near to the sleepy village where Julia lived to say their goodbyes.
Mourners had been asked to wear blue in a nod to Julia's brave work with the police.
Bethan earlier urged the community to "come together once more" ahead of the funeral.
