THE funeral of the second of two schoolboys, killed when a car tragically smashed into their Greenacre school, was held at Rookwood on Monday.
Andrew Robert Encinas, 9, and Jihad Warwiche, 8, were killed when an out-of-control SUV, driven by a 52-year-old mother who was dropping her child off at the school, ploughed into the Banksia Road Public School classroom last Tuesday.
Andrew's funeral was held in front of family and friends at Rookwood Cemetery's South Chapel on Monday. His funeral followed Jihad's funeral at the Lakemba Mosque last Thursday.
On social media, Jihad's father has said he forgives the driver and would "sit and talk with her".
Mr Warwiche said any abuse the driver was getting was not condoned by the family as they have "forgiven".
