Acknowledgement and First Anniversary

On the occasion of Mary’s first anniversary, her husband Connie, daughters Maeve and Emma, Mother Josie, sister Anne and the extended family would like to thank everyone for their kindness and support during her illness, funeral and throughout the year following our sad loss.

A special thanks to all who cared for Mary with such kindness and compassion; her GP Dr Michael Casey, the Doctors and staff at Cork University Hospital, the Homecare Team of Marymount University Hospital, the Public Health Nursing team, all at Reen’s Pharmacy and her friends and neighbours.

We thank most sincerely all who sent Mass cards, offered sympathy, provided food, who posted on, sent flowers, attended her removal and funeral.  For the beautiful and thoughtful ceremony our sincere thanks to Fr John Fitzgerald and Fr Teddy Linehan for officiating at the funeral Mass. Many thanks to Joan O’ Donoghue for organising the Church and all the singers and musicians for their music, singing and choice of hymns.

We would like to thank Davy, Cora & all at Tarrant’s Undertakers for their help and professionalism.

As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as sincere thanks and appreciation.  Mass will be offered for your intentions.
