It has been a long time since we posted news as it has been a sad time for us.
One of our very much appreciated Bursary supporters, Irene who had been having treatment for cancer has passed away, peacefully. It came as a shock as we thought she had longer to live.
We felt privileged to be at the Requiem Mass held to celebrate her life and offer our condolences to the O'Brien and the King family, particularly Paul.
When unexpected deaths come in a way that seems too soon in a person's life, she was 48, it is difficult to know how to express empathy but I do know from my own experience after Luke's death that to say something shows it mattered to other people as well as the family so they don't feel alone with their grief.
Start by doing what's necessary; then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
