John/Rosemary Delves.Very old friends.

Dear Tony and family,Rosemary and I just heard the terrible news of Mary’s death.We are abroad at the moment and will be unable to attend the funeral,fortunately we will be able to follow it tomorrow through the link.
We have great memories spanning fifty years of friendship and our friendship has endured through those years.
Mary will be a huge loss to you and the family.She was a kind,gentle generous person and we are saddened by the fact that the pandemic has made it difficult to meet over the past few years.Rosemary and I often thought of how innocent we were,heading off very early on the morning of your wedding,bus to the Phoenix Park and several hitches later we arrived in Roscommon.May she rest in peace.

Deepest sympathy to all the family. May She Rest In Peace.
