Updated: Sep 17


The family of the late Paddy Henry (Desertmartin) would like to express their sincere gratitude to all those who sympathised with them during their recent sad loss.

Thank you to everyone who called to pay their respects during the wake and funeral and to those who sent Mass and Sympathy Cards. To all the friends, family and neighbours that helped with the wake and funeral arrangements we are extremely grateful.

A special thanks to Brona, Ciara, Kate, Anna and Cara for their wonderful music and singing. To Fr Peter Madden and Fr Dermot McGirr we are sincerely grateful for their spiritual support to Paddy in his home and also to Monsignor Joey Donnelly for assisting Fr Madden at the beautiful Requiem Mass.

For the volunteers at the Parochial Hall who provided us with a lovely meal after the service we are extremely appreciative. Also a thank you to Desertmartin GAC for providing chairs and to the Connery family for transporting them.

A sincere appreciation to JA Gormley Funeral Directors, Maghera and Coleraine for the professional manner in which they conducted the funeral arrangements. Thank you also to the Fullen brothers for the grave digging.

We are indebted to the Trust Carers and to the night sitters who provided several months of compassionate care to Paddy. They brought with them smiles and laughter every day.

To Dr White and Dr Logan and to the District Nurses for the kindness and support shown to us we are deeply grateful. We trust that this acknowledgment will be accepted as a token of our heartfelt and sincere appreciation to everyone mentioned and to those we have not been able to mention.

Paddy’s Month’s Mind Mass was celebrated on Friday 16th September at St Marys Church Coolcalm at 11am. Mass was viewed via parish web cam https://www.churchservices.tv/desertmartin
