Dear Mal, You are now at peace, with your mum and dad and probably singing your head off!! I am so glat to have known you and will cherish memories of many 'girls gatherings' we shared together.

Dear Mal, It was a privilege to have known you, you have been a wonderful mother-law to sarah, we all used to enjoy our lovely meals together. You will be greatly missed and will always be in our thoughts. Lots of love Lyn and Staryl xxxx


I cant believe you’re gone Mum. It doesn’t feel real. I hope you are in a better place, at peace with Nana & Grandad Pops. No more putting on a brave face. No more worrying about everyone else. You can let go Mum. Finally rest. Your memory lives on all over my house, everywhere I turn I see you. Everyday I get in my car and you’re singing “Summertime” on repeat, and I feel close to you again. I am so grateful to still be able to hear your beautiful voice! The kids shout Nana’s song and sing it with me everyday! Thank you Mum, for loving me, looking after me and being my best friend. I will miss you more than words can say. Mostly our telephone calls, several times a day but I take comfort in the wonderful memories we made together. I love you to the moon and back Mum. Sleep tight xxx

Dearest Mal, You have been a huge part of my life since the age of 11yrs when we met at McEntee secondary school. You made me laugh so much at school with your larger than life personality. Our friendship has continued with laughter, and sometimes tears, the ups and downs, highs and lows, travels and adventures we experienced together, throughout our lives. I will miss you so much, as will everyone who knew you and loved you. Keep on singing Mal, we will hear you, and keep you in our hearts, always.x
