The widow of executed drug smuggler Andrew Chan will farewell him at his Sydney funeral by reading from the final letter he sent her.

The two-hour service is being held at Hillsong Church in Baulkham Hills at 11am on Friday, and will be streamed live online.

It will include a reflection Chan wrote about his life before he was executed on April 29 with fellow Bali Nine drug smuggler Myuran Sukumaran.

For those planning on buying flowers, Chan’s family has asked that people instead adopt “the pay it forward attitude and bless someone”.

“We’d love to see this money used to help others or be donated to a worthy cause,” Andrew’s brother Michael said in a statement.
