Acknowledgement from the family of the late Ellen Heffron R.I.P.
Updated: Apr 24
HEFFRON (née McCusker). The family of the late Ellen Heffron wish to express our sincere thanks to friends, neighbours and extended family for their love and support following our recent bereavement. We are deeply grateful to everyone who called, sent Mass and sympathy cards, wrote letters of condolence, paid tribute on social media, and who comforted us in whatever way they could at this difficult time, during the wake and on the morning of the funeral.
A special thanks to everyone who cared for our mother during her illness, including the staff at the Antrim Area, Mid-Ulster, Royal Victoria and Causeway hospitals; the GPs and receptionists at Draperstown Health Centre; the Maghera community nursing team; Vincent and his staff at Harkin’s Pharmacy; and all the girls from Ann’s Home Care.
Thanks also to our mother’s many friends for their much appreciated acts of kindness; to Fr Paddy Doherty and Fr Kieran O’Doherty for their pastoral care and for concelebrating the beautiful and poignant Requiem Mass; to Hannah Ferguson for her wonderful singing; and to JA Gormley Funeral Directors, Maghera, for their dignified handling of the funeral arrangements.
As it is impossible to thank you all personally, we trust you will accept this acknowledgment as a token of our heartfelt gratitude.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered for your intentions. Ellen’s month’s mind Mass was celebrated in St Patrick’s Church Glen on Friday April 16th.
REST IN PEACE ELLEN.
