  1. I woke up this morning to the sad news that my beloved friend Marian had passed; since our days at Pauline o’Hora’s Chemist shop on Bridge Street where she ‘did the books’ (1964) we have remained very close and though I’ve been gone for years our friendship has endured and was always as fresh and current as though we never had that separation, it became stronger over time. “Marian dearest friend I feel so lucky to have seen you just two short weeks ago while home, you were in good spirits then though that cough worried me, thank you for being my precious friend all these years” Marian is someone I have held in high esteem and her patience love and trustworthiness and forbearance are qualities that I have always admired and will never forget. All the family she loved so much were there that last day I visited which was so special for me as they made me feel so valued heartily welcome and part of the family. My heart goes out to Tony Susan Christopher Antoinette Carol their families and all Marian’s other friends and relatives. She will be greatly missed by all, but for me she will live on in her children. It was comforting for me to know that she passed peacefully with all of you by her side. She will definitely go to a higher plane.

    Sending my deepest sympathy support gratitude and love to all of you this time.

  4. Crossing the Bar
    Alfred Lord Tennyson

    Sunset and evening star,
    And one clear call for me!
    And may there be no moaning of the bar,
    When I put out to sea,

    But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
    Too full for sound and foam,
    When that which drew from out the boundless deep
    Turns again home.

    Twilight and evening bell,
    And after that the dark!
    And may there be no sadness of farewell,
    When I embark;

    For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
    The flood may bear me far,
    I hope to see my Pilot face to face
    When I have cross’d the bar.

    Dedicated to Marion
