Thanks to all who sent letters, cards and who left messages of sympathy on, Midwest Radio and other social media platforms. Thank you to Fr. Conal Eustace P.P who celebrated both Funeral Masses and also our thanks to Fr. Shane Sullivan C.C. for his kind words of comfort.
Thank you to the Irish Cancer Society, Palliative Care, RS Homecare and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul for their support.

We would also like to thank Commander Ronald M Howko, Foreign Legion, United States of America for attending Dad’s Funeral Mass and Burial and presenting us with the flag of the United States of America, which our Dad was so proud to have served.

Thank you to Michael Kilcoyne for arranging both funerals, you did an incredible job.

We will never forget your kindness and the love shown to us.  Our hearts are broken as we try to pick up the pieces of our lives without our loving parents.
