Emyvale, Monaghan

‘Don’t be putting me up on them oul RIP’s’ was another wish of our wee Mammy. She loved life, didn’t want people to be sad. But our wish is to let it be said and written that our world is already way less colourful and beautiful without her. A nurse all her life, she cared deeply for people and her wish was to keep working, help people after she passed.

So she’s ‘off to college’ - having donated her precious wee body to science.

‘And a wee party after', she said.

On behalf of all our family we thank everybody for all their kindness and support during this most heartbreaking time and to come join us at her party.
