John’s Months Mind will be celebrated at Mass on Sunday, July 30th in the 

Church of the Most Holy Rosary, Brid-a-Crin at 10am. All very welcome. 


Death is nothing at all

I have only slipped away into the next room.

Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by my old familiar name,

Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little

jokes we enjoyed together.

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.

Let my name be the household word that it always was.

Let it be spoken without effort.

Life means all that it ever meant.

It is the same that it ever was;

there is absolutely unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of your mind

because I am out of your sight?

I am but waiting for you,

for an interval, somewhere very near,

just around the corner.

All is well. Nothing is past; nothing is lost.

One brief moment and all will be as it was before –

only better, infinitely happier and forever –

we will all be one together with Christ.

John will always be remembered by his sons Seamus, Seán, Brian and Padraig,
daughters-in-law Roma, Jacqui and Una,
grandchildren Sarah, John, Rebecca, Eoin, Niamh, Cian, Gráinne, Ciara and Rachel,
great-grandchildren Jake, Tiarnán, Claragh, Noah, Emily and Flynn,
sister Mary, brothers Pat and James, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law,
nephews, nieces, relatives and friends.
