Sincere thanks to Fr. Bourke and Fr. O’Donnell for their attention to Rita’s spiritual needs and for supporting us in our preparation of the funeral Mass. We thank them and the concelebrants for a beautiful funeral Mass. Special thanks to Ann-Marie Kavanagh for her wonderful singing, to Paul and Dixie Byrne and Claire Kavanagh for their music, and the local community choir lead by Stella Quinn and Michelle King, which added so much to the funeral Mass.

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, and we may be worlds apart

but you are always in our thoughts, and forever in our hearts
