TWEED police are finalising a report for the coroner on the tragic death of four-year-old Eeva Dorendahl-Hutchings and her father Greg Hutchings, whose bodies were found in sand dunes at Pottsville in January.

Greg's mother Diana Hutchings, from Pottsville, said she had been advised that due to the case's high profile, the report would go to Sydney to be handled by the NSW State Coroner, Michael Barnes.

She said she had been told the toxicology and final post-mortem results were still months away. She was yet to receive word on when Greg's body would be released for burial.

The Hutchings family recently staged a private memorial service for Greg and Eeva at Byron Bay.

Ms Hutchings said family and friends from as far as Darwin and Melbourne attended.

She said there was "lots of tears, and laughs" as the pair's lives were celebrated.

She and her daughter Sheri were now trying to "find a way to move on from losing half our family".

"All we have is memories and photos and some writing and drawings."

Ms Hutchings said one day she hoped that the truth about what happened to the pair and why would surface.

Police suspect a murder-suicide in the case that generated headlines around the country.
