Eily’s Report – 26th October

As a mark of respect for the late Denny John Hickey, my  weekly report will not appear this week in it’s usual format.

To lose a husband, a dad, a dad-in-law, a granddad a brother, an acquaintance, a friend or neighbour like Denny John is a dreadful cross to bear. His untimely death has left a deep void in the lives of all those who knew  and loved and respected him. His devoted family, extended family, friends and neighbours.                                                                                

 Denny John was someone that I knew who worked in Noel C Duggan’s yard over the years where I found him pleasant and obliging at all times. But it was only when his beautiful daughter Denise and my son John D got married that we  all got better acquainted and progressed into a life of friendship, co-operation, joy and everything that goes into making life  lived to the full. In time Molly and Dan came along and Denny John was always there to record their young lives on film, to play ball with Dan and show him his tricks of the game while Mary encouraged Molly to develop her natural aptitude for cooking and baking. But that is only a mere example. I, having been part of it all never tired of the atmosphere of wellbeing which existed throughout. I could write volumes about it but not now. Some day I will, because such a wonderful story should not be lost to history.

Sickness came as sickness will as is the will of God and has to be accepted.  What cannot be cured must be endured.  But God promised that no matter how heavy that cross may be that he will give the strength to bear it and that is what we ask of him today that he may lighten the burden of Denny John’s death for the family that he loved so well.  His youthful demeaner will live on in their memories in the Land where he will never grow old and where he will  continue pray for them all.                                                                 Our deepest sympathy goes out at this sad time to  Denny John’s grieving family, his  wife Mary, daughter Denise, son Padraig, Son-in-Law John D. Grandchildren Aoise, Molly and Dan and all his extended family and friends. May God console them all in their grief and grant the soul of Denny John Eternal Rest.

Denis Murphy, Gurranecarney, Carriganima – First Anniversary and Acknowledgement

In loving memory of DENIS (DENNY) MURPHY, Gurranecarney, Carriganima, Macroom, Co Cork. Sadly taken on the 26th of October 2020.
As we continue to struggle through this most unimaginable grief, we remember Denny with so much love. I, Denny’s wife and best friend Caitríona, his adored daughters Gráinne and Ríona, his brother Stevie, sisters Noreen, Mary, Anne and their extended families, wish to express our deepest appreciation and gratitude to all those who sympathised with us at the time of Denny’s untimely passing.
Due to covid health restrictions we were unable to meet with family, friends and neighbours but we were incredibly moved by the letters, Mass cards, online condolences and phone calls we received. We would particularly like to express our appreciation to our family, friends and neighbours who lined the route of the funeral cortege on Denny’s final journey. This thoughtful gesture offered untold support to us and was deeply appreciated.
Thank you to Fr Francis Manning and Fr Jack Fitzgerald for all their prayers and support. To Sharon Lane and Julie Bradley sacristans, and to Annmarie O’Riordan and Anthony for the beautiful singing and music during the Mass. Thanks also to those who organised and attended the virtual rosaries and prayers online, these were greatly appreciated.
A special thank you to Davy Tarrant, Cora and the staff of Tarrant’s Funeral Directors for their kindness, sensitivity and professionalism with the funeral arrangements, without which we would not have been able to give Denny the funeral he deserved.
As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as an expression of our gratitude and appreciation.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass has been offered for your intentions.
