Malachy and the McDonnell family would like to acknowledge the many expressions of sympathy and gestures of kindness shown to them during this sad and very difficult time. We offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who telephoned, sent cards, letters, emails, floral tributes and messages of sympathy through social media. We would especially like to extend our thanks to our friends (both here and abroad) and neighbours for their kindness over the past few weeks. We truly appreciate your support and are forever grateful.
Also, sincere thanks to all those who attended the funeral, those who came out to pay their respects along the route to the church and to everyone who watched the service online.
We also offer thanks to Fr Eamon Graham for his spiritual support to the family and Fr Dermott Harkin for his pastoral care and celebrating the very fitting funeral Mass.
Many thanks to the Gribben sisters for the beautiful music and singing.
Thank you to Mc Kiernan Funeral Directors, Kilrea for the extremely dignified and compassionate service throughout. Their professionalism and attention to detail and caring for us all during this very difficult time was very much noted and appreciated.
We trust that this acknowledgment will be accepted by all as a token of our deep appreciation. The holy sacrifice of the Mass will be offered in thanksgiving for the intentions of all.
May Gregory Rest in Peace.
