James (Jim) Casey,
Castlecarra, Carnacon, Ballyglass (Died June 24, 2017).

In loving memory of dear Dad and Granddad.

1st Anniversary Mass in St. Mary’s Church, Carnacon on Sunday, June 24th at 10.30am.

As I look up to the skies above,
The stars stretch endlessly
But somehow all those rays of light
Seem dimmer now to me.
As I watch the morning sun appear,
The shadows still don’t fade
As if the brightest light of all
Was somehow swept away.

Though I see the branches swaying,
And watch their dancing leaves
The echoes carried on the wind
Don’t sound the same to me.
As I listen to the morning birds
Sing softly from afar
It seems to be a mournful tune
That echoes in my heart.

Another day has come again,
As time moves surely on
But nothing now seems quite the same,
To know that he is gone.
The days and weeks and months ahead
Will never be the same
Because a treasure beyond words
Can never be replaced.

The loss cannot be measured now,
The void cannot be filled
And though someday the grief may fade,
His mark will live on still.
For even with my heavy heart,
I know that I’ve been blessed
To have been one who’s life he touched
With warmth and love so infinite.

Lovingly remembered by your daughters Marie, Beatrice, Helen and Orla, sons-in-law Ray, Christy and Sean, grandchildren Dara, Aoife, Ryan, Abbie, Ava and baby Leah.
