We wish to express our gratitude to all the healthcare professionals, consultants, surgeons, doctors, district nursing team and the Marie Curie team for their care, compassion and support to our family as we cared for Daddy at home in his final months.
Thank you to Fr Loghran for celebrating a beautiful requiem mass and to Caolan Keavney for his lovely singing.
