Patrick (Paddy) Murphy

26th Anniversary - 4th August
Along the road of suffering
You found a little lane
That took you up to Heaven
And ended all your pain
You may be out of sight
We may be worlds apart
But you are always in our prayers
And forever in our hearts
So deeply missed and loved so much by all the family


Raymond Carey

34th Anniversary - 30th July
Late of Beech Park.
Treasured memories of our darling son, brother and uncle.

Forever Young
There is a star in Heaven
That comes out late at night
We know it's you Ray just to say good night
It's been 34 years and many tears
Of wishing this isn't so
Thoughts of you are always here
And it's so hard to let go
God gave us a precious son and brother
Whose memory will never grow old
He fashioned his smile out of sunshine
And gave him a heart of gold
He wanted a new star in Heaven
A beautiful light to shine
And out of this world of sorrow
He chose our son and brother so fine
So Ray look after your sister Orla for us
Keep her in your care
Make up for all she suffered
And all that seemed unfair
Loving and missing you so much sweetheart
Love you forever Mam, Dad, brothers and sisters, nephews and nieces. xxxxxxxxxx

On that morning God called you home
Leaving us with the memories
Of your laughter, great wit and kind soul
Bernadette, May, extended family and friends


Ollie Kearns

6th Anniversary
Late of Airlie Heights
There's a face with blue eyes before us
A voice we'd love to hear
A smile we will always remember
Of Ollie we loved so dear
Sadly missed Barney, Triona and Conor, Liam, Anne and Joe xxx

Ann Moffitt

8th Anniversary – 7th August
We thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new,
We thought about you yesterday
And days before that too
We think of you in silence
We often speak your name
All we have are memories
And your picture in a frame
Your memory is our keepsake
In which we will never part
God has you in his keeping
We have you in our hearts.
Always remembered.
Love Mick, John, Dermot, Anita, Martina, Anthony, Alanna and Jamie. Xxx

Ann's Anniversary Mass will take place on 6th August at 12 o’clock Mass in St Patrick’s Church, Esker.
