My heart goes out to Marion, Noel and everyone who loved John. He was a lovely person, who will be deeply missed. He was the most gentle person I ever met, always had a smile and always in good form, he never complained. Whenever he was talking about Sligo his eyes brightened up and I could see so much happiness when he was planning to go there. His house was always warm and welcoming. I have been looking after him for over 4 years and I am so happy that I met such a wonderful person, he made my job special and he will always have a special place in my heart.
