Dear Declan, Brendan, Derek and Emily,
We are so very sad today to hear of your Mam’s death. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all on these sad days ahead. May she give you all courage and strength. No doubt she is happy and at peace, free from all suffering and in the arms of her dear Paddy. May she rest in peace

Liz GallagherFriend of the family

Derek, Emily, Brendan and Declan (and all the extended family). I am truly sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. It is never easy to lose a loved one, and it is especially difficult to lose a mother. Sending you love and support.
