We, the family of the late Johnny (Brian) Rowlands wish to express our heartfelt thanks to all who sympathised with us in our recent sad bereavement.
Special thanks to Father Murray for his pastoral support at the house and officiating at the graveside service.
Thanks to family, friends and neighbours who sent Mass and sympathy cards, telephoned, paid their respects and helped in anyway during this difficult time.
Thanks also to those who made a donation to Chest, Heart & Stroke Association in memory of our father and brother.
A special thank-you to the carers who looked after Johnny (Brian) while he was at home in Boulevard Park Newcastle and Ardview House Ardglass, the doctors and nurses of The Downe and Ulster Hospitals and the community nursing teams.
Special and grateful thanks to Mark Baker, staff and tenants of Cedar Court Downpatrick for their care and support ensuring our father and brother’s final months were happy and comfortable.
Our sincere thanks to Claire, Martin and Gordon of Charles Rourke Funeral Directors for the professional and dignified manner in which our father and brother’s funeral arrangements were carried out.
As it is impossible to thank everyone individually, we hope this acknowledgement will be accepted as an expression of our deepest thanks and appreciation.
