McCORMACK Rita Words could never express the love and gratitude Maria, Jayne and Bridgette have for the friends, family and neighbours at Merlin Court, who have shown their love and support for them all and their dear mum Rita, especially during the past few months. The actions, words of comfort and the love shown has enabled them to cope during this sad time. Their mum would have been overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness. Thank you for Fr. Rosso, Fr. O'Keeffe and Fr. McLaughlin for the blessings and sacraments bestowed on their mum, as well as their time, guidance and love shown both to her and them. In particular they offer their appreciation to all the medical staff who looked after their mum with such care and diligence, as well as David Gallagher, who again provided such a high quality service in supporting the family during a difficult time. They were also moved by the 'tribute' shown to their mum through donations to 'Friends of Airedale' and 'Manorlands' which at present stands at £938.50. Words could never express their thanks and heartfelt appreciation and the happiness in their hearts can never diminish but grow stronger through the actions and prayers of others, or as their mum would have put it, 'happiness, happiness the greatest gift that we possess, I thank the Lord that we've been blessed with more than our share of happiness'.
