Dear cousins...Christine Maree Anne Paul Patrick and Josephine. So sorry to hear of the sad loss of Auntie Mary your much loved Mother. Please know you are all very much in my thoughts and prayers at the moment. I have many fond memories of your mother who was a kind and thoughtful person of keen intelligence and faith. May it be a comfort to you all that she is now enjoying being her lovely self again and in the company of her husband Paul and little Genny. She bravely put up a long fight with her dementia and is now at peace. Sadly i may not be able to attend her funeral but will be there in spirit with you all. May Gods love and peace be with you all at this sad and yet special time. I fully understand that whatever age you are and your loved one was it still hurts a lot to loose your mother. Loving thoughts to you all. xxx Trish Roughan and family.
