Our special thanks to the Diamond family, in particular Sinead for her tireless care and patience; to the McGill family, to Fr. Eamon Graham, continuously a champion of his predecessor, to Fr. Paddy Doherty (Maghera) and to Bishop McKeown.
Our special thanks to the staff of Milesian Manor, in particular Shannon McKaigue, Anthony and Sevlon - their care and devotion always remembered and deeply appreciated. Our thanks to the staff, boys and girls in St. Brigid's Primary School, to the boys, girls, men and women of Erin's Own GAC.

The thousands of quiet, effective words that have passed are his legacy of love and care. 'And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.’ St. Paul, 1 Corinthians 13:13
