The family of the late Paddy Donnelly R.I.P. would like to express their sincere thanks and appreciation to all those who sympathised and supported them during their recent bereavement.
Thank you to all those who called at the house, attended the funeral or watched online and to all those who sent mass / sympathy cards or messages by phone or social media.
We wish to thank Monsignor Delargy and Fr Aloysius Lumala (Ballymena Parish) for their support and to Fr McWilliams (Rasharkin Parish) for officiating at the Funeral Mass. Thanks also to Moira Crawley for providing the music and song during the funeral mass and burial.
We are deeply grateful to Dempsey Funeral Directors Kilrea for the caring and dignified manner in which they carried out the funeral arrangements.
Thank you to the staff of Antrim Area Hospital and the Royal Victoria Hospital. A special thanks to the staff of Old Bank Surgery Ballymena and Ballymena District Nursing for tending to Paddy over his final months.
As it is impossible to thank everyone individually, we trust that this will be accepted by all as a very heartfelt token of our gratitude.
