Acknowledgement for the late Sadie Gates
The family of the late Sadie Gates R.I.P., wish to express sincere thanks to all those who sympathised with them following the sudden loss of a much loved Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother, Aunt and Friend to so many.
We have been overwhelmed with the love, kindness and support from family, friends and the local community. Thank you to everyone who sent Mass cards, sympathy cards, letters, emails, floral tributes, brought food, telephoned, sent messages on social media or came to pay their respects to our Mother at her home. We truly appreciated the strength gained from your presence and support.
For all those who lined the route to the Church in honour of our Mother and everyone who attended the funeral or joined us via webcam for the Requiem Mass, you touched our hearts and have given us comfort in coming to terms with her loss.
We would also like to pay special thanks to Orlagh McHugh, Acute Community Nurse, who attended our mother on the night of her passing and to Dr Áine Herron, her attentive GP.
We wish to thank Archbishop Eamon Martin, Bishop Michael Router, Cardinal Seán Brady and the many priests of the Archdiocese of Armagh and other Dioceses, who provided prayerful comfort and support. Special thanks to Fr Eugene O'Neill, PP, Coalisland, for his constant presence and unfailing help and to Fr Mark O'Hagan and Monsignor Christopher O'Byrne for concelebrating the Requiem Mass. Thanks also to Amanda and Damien for the beautiful music. To Paddy Gates, the Sacristan, for all his help and to the gravedigger who prepared the grave.
Sincerest thanks to Peter Devlin of M. Dorman and Son undertakers, for the compassionate, professional and dignified manner in which he carried out all of the funeral arrangements.
As it is impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as a token of our heartfelt thanks. Mass will be offered for your intentions.
Sadie's Month's Memory Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday 24th August at 7.30 pm in SS Mary and Joseph Church, Brackaville, and will be streamed online at:
