Date of Death: Saturday 2nd October 2021

Donal (Partner) Jamie and Mark (Sons) Josephine (Mother) and the entire Dillon family, wish to especially thank kind relations, friends and neighbours who helped them during this difficult time. Also to all those who messaged, sent cards, flowers, provided food and attended the wake or accompanied Rachel’s final journey to the chapel.

A special thanks to Bridge Street Medical Practice and all the staff in the Sperrin Room Altnagelvin, for all the care and support shown to us all during Rachel’s illness and the nurses who attended her at home. Also a special thanks to Father Gormley for celebrating the Requiem Mass and the beautiful music provided.

Finally, sincere thanks to Kieran and all at McClafferty Funeral Directors for the professional, compassionate and dignified way the funeral arrangements were carried out.
Rachel’s Months Mind Mass will take place in St. Mary’s Church, Creggan on Tuesday, November 9th, 7:30pm. Everyone is welcome.

“Perhaps you sent a lovely card,
Or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray,
If so we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
As any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
We thank you so very much,
Whatever the part”
