We, the family of the late Tony Rodgers, RIP, would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all those who sympathised with us on the recent loss of our much loved husband, daddy, papa and brother.
To all who called at the house, sent mass offerings and sympathy cards, donated to Mesothelioma UK, attended the funeral and posted on social media, we are overwhelmed by the high esteem in which Tony was held and are so appreciative of the support at this terribly difficult time.
A special thanks to all the medical and nursing staff involved in Tony’s care during his illness.
Thanks to Fr Ralph for his support and for celebrating such a personal requiem mass. Also to Dominic and Ciara Wadsworth for the beautiful music.
We extend our thanks to McGennity funeral directors for their professionalism and the dignified manner in which they carried out the funeral arrangements.

May he rest in peace.
