Thank You
Thank you so much for the fantastic going away party and presentation last Saturday evening. It was really appreciated by my family and I. We had a lovely evening and it was great to be able to gather as a community to meet up and chat with each other especially after the pandemic. The Hall looked great with the tables nicely prepared and the hall decorated with lovely flowers and greenery.
Thank you for the presentation of flowers to my Mam and for the beautiful and thoughtful presentations to me- I was overwhelmed by peoples generosity and kindness.
Thanks to everyone for their generosity in their contribution to the main presentation and thanks to those who gave gifts.
Thanks to all the people who called to the house over the last number of weeks, I really appreciated those chats.
Thanks too for the beautiful cards which I received, not one card was identical!! And more importantly the kind words written in them really touched me. They will take pride of place in my new home in Enfield. The encouraging e mails and other social media messages also were appreciated and helped me as I was packing in the final days.
You will always have a special place in my heart and will be remembered in my prayers.
Wishing you all every grace and blessing
Patrick
