Month’s Mind | Margaret GASKIN (née Sheelan)

Dundalk, Louth


Margaret’s Months Mind will be celebrated at Mass on Sunday, 1st October in

St. Mary’s Church, Lordship at 10am.
All very welcome. 



O’ What is it all when all is told,
The ceaseless toiling for fame or gold,

The fleeting joy of bitter tears,
We’re only here for a few short years.
Nothing’s our own but the silent past,
Loving or hating, nothing can last.
Each pathway leads to the silent fold,
O’ what is it all when all is told.

What is it all a grassy mound,
Where day or night there is never sound,
Save the soft low moan of the fanning breeze,
As it lovingly rustles the silent trees.
Or a thoughtful friend with whispered prayer,
May sometimes break the stillness there.
Then hurry away from the gloom and the cold,
O’ what is it all when all is told.

What is all just passing true,
A cross for me and a cross for you.
Ours seem heavy while others seem light,
But God in the end makes all things right.
He tempts the mind with loving care,
He knows the burden that each can bear,
Then turns life’s grey into heavenly gold.
O’ what is all when all is told.

Margaret will always be remembered by her son and daughter David and Anne, daughter-in-law Fiona, son-in-law Shane,
her adored grandchildren, Sienna, Joe, Elliott, Henry, Oliver, Conor and Abigail,
her sister Anne, her sister-in-law Susan, her brother-in-law Stephen,
her nieces and nephews.
