First Anniversary of Thomas Kilbane, Late of Ballinasloe, Co. Galway and formerly of Achill Sound, Co. Mayo (died February 26th, 2020).

On our dearly loved Thomas’s first anniversary, we his family, Brigid, Fiona, Mark, Mike, Patsy and grandchildren Kaylynn, Shayna, Neasa, Jessica and MacDara along with his brother and sisters wish to acknowledge and express our sincere thanks to all who sympathised with us on our sad loss.

Thanks to our many friends and relatives who travelled to be with us, offered support through cards, emails, telephone calls and shared stories of times spent with Thomas. Many of you still continue to reach out to us – your support in these difficult times – continues to be a great source of comfort and strength.

As it is impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as an expression of our deepest gratitude. We cannot celebrate Thomas’s anniversary Mass together due to restrictions – the Mass will be live streamed from on Saturday the 27th February at 7:00 p.m. we invite you to join us online as we celebrate and remember with love and sadness the life of Thomas Kilbane.

“Our lives go on without you
But nothing is the same
We have to hide our heartache
When someone speaks your name

Sad are the hearts that love you
Silent are the tears that fall
Living here without you
Is the hardest part of all

You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
And When we needed someone
We could always count on you

The special years will not return
When we are all together
But with the love in our hearts
You walk with us forever
