Dear Lily and Whelan Family I want to offer my sincere condolences for the loss of my most favorite and much loved Uncle Kevin. I first remember Kevin when I was a child and we used to visit Ballylinan to visit our Granny and Uncle Brendan an anty Ann, Uncle Keven was always so kind to us all playing with us and bringing us out shooting for hours on end ensuring we all had a go. I remember so well when I was about 14 years old and went to Carrighlee college in Dublin to become a Christian Brother, I was so lonely and wanted to go home but a visit from Lily and Kevin lifted my spirits so much ye were always so thoughtful and kind I will never forget it. One time I met Kevin and Lilly just by chance I was at a funeral in Kilkenny and spotted them in the car park, I told him then that the owner of TVM Bart Arnold was very impressed when I told him my Dad and his brother Kevin were involved in the electronics and generator business as he knew Keven well “Kevin is a brilliant engineer he serviced all our generators here” was what he said and I’m sure it swung the job for me.
I am so sorry we couldn’t get to his funeral, our neighbors here both have Covid and we thought it best to stay away. My wife Mary and I watched online and the eulogy from Mark was wonderful it said all that our family and especially my mother felt about uncle Kevin. He was much loved by so many people and will live on in our memory till it’s our time to join him. Lots of Love to ye All Dave & Mary Whelan
