Murray (Molly)

16th May 2017
The family of the late Molly Murray of Sarsfield Park would like to thank most sincerely all those who sympathised with them on their great loss.

We offer our heartfelt thanks to the many friends and neighbours who attended the reposing in the Funeral home, the Funeral Mass and burial.

To those who telephoned, travelled long distances, sent Mass cards, flowers, and messages of condolences we are truly grateful.

We would especially like thank all the staff in Parke House Nursing Home for the care and kindness shown to mam over the past two and a half year.

Thank you to Fr Tom Kennedy, Des Wynn and Singer Mary Flynn for a beautiful Mass to celebrate mam's life.

We greatly appreciate all the kindness and support from Robin and the staff of Cunninghams, thank you for helping us give mam a fitting farewell.

Thank you to the Management and Staff of Kenny's (Vesey Arms).

As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as an expression of our gratitude.
Mass will be offered for your intentions

Months Mind Mass will be offered on Saturday June 24th at 6.30 in St Marys Church

Mam, you left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide, although we cannot see you, you're always at our side

To his wife, family, friends and colleagues, we extend our sincere sympathy.
