Dear Ethel,Elaine , and Mathew,
Thank you for letting us share this warm and caring memorial for Matt this morning from across the pond. Elaine’s eulogy for her Father was expressed beautifully …directly from her heart. The simple genuineness of it perfectly captured who he was and how he lived each day always sharing love, devilish laughter and affection on his family.His love of his roots gave so many of us who relied upon it to build a rich connection with Kilkelly and Mayo and the bitrh place of our parents and grandparents.
As the priest reminded us in his sermon , he will always be alive within those cherished memories of the times we were fornunate enough to share with him.
Until we meet again, May the lord hold this very good man in the palm of his hand.
