As we remember Lee on his first anniversary, on behalf of his family we would like to thank all those who sympathised with us on our great loss.
We would like to thank the many relatives, friends and neighbours who called, sat with us, laughed and cried with us, but gave us great support through a very difficult time. A special thank you to the family members who traveled from America and Holland. For those who sent memorial cards, flowers and messages of support, thank you. A special mention and a big thank you to Ailish, we can never repay your help and kindness to Lee. We would also like to thank the emergency services for all their help.
We would like to thank all the people who attended the rosary, removal, funeral and all those who contributed to the funeral Mass. As always we can never thank Fr John, in Faranree church, enough for his kindness to us and his beautiful Mass. A huge thank you to Coughlans undertakers, especially Joe and Grace for their unbelievable professionalism. We would also like to thank the lads from Scapa Flo for the music in the church and a special mention for Lee's cousin Deborah for the beautiful singing.
We would like to thank everyone who helped us through such a hard time in any way. As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as a token of our deepest gratitude.
A daily thought a silent tear
A constant wish that you were here
An empty place no one can fill
I miss you Lee and always will
(From your heartbroken mam)
One gift in life you cannot buy
A gift so rare and true
A gift of a beautiful brother
Like the one we had in you.
(Your loving sister Karen and brother Jamie)
We had a wonderful uncle
One who never really grew old
His smile was made of sunshine
And his heart was solid gold
(Sadly missed by Rhia, Jamie, Darragh and Kyle)
