We, the family of the late Sean O’Grady RIP, 14 Ballinaleck Lane, Camlough, would like to express our gratitude to those who helped and comforted us in the recent loss of Sean, a loving husband, our devoted dad, a most cherished grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.

Sean’s passing away came at a very strange and challenging time for ourselves and our family. Our bereavement has been made easier due to the support of our extended family, great neighbours and reliable friends. We thank all those who were in a position to call to see us, communicated their sympathies with us through phone calls, mass bouquets, sympathy cards, letters and floral arrangments. They have been a great comfort to us all in the days and weeks since Sean’s passing.

Sean O'Grady

We would like to convey our thanks to the medical staff who supported us in Da’s short illness in which he was strengthened by faith and dignity. Our appreciation to Dr Quinn and staff, Newtownhamilton, to Seamus Strain of Camlough Pharmacy for his help at all times, the staff of Daisy Hill and Craigavon Area Hospital for their assistance and the compassion and level of care we received from the staff of the Cancer Unit, City Hospital Belfast. We thank the District Nursing team and cannot express our gratitude enough to the Marie Curie nursing team for ensuring Sean’s passing away was peaceful and he was able to retain his dignity.

We thank the Clergy and Deacon of the Parish of Lower Killeavy for their pastoral support and funeral mass and ask them to continue to pray for us in our grief. We thank Janice Gribben for her beautiful singing that enhanced Sean’s Requiem Mass. A special thanks to Jennifer of Lily and Lace florists and Maureen of Village Flowers for their floral tributes.

We would like to especially thank Daniel Mallon Funeral Directors for his professional, compassionate and respectful treatment of both our Da and us as a family. Daniel provided us with invaluable support and guidance in what was already a difficult time, but was made even more difficult by the current world health climate. We will forever be in Daniel's debt.

We thank Carrickcruppen GAA Club for their help throughout Da's wake. We appreciate all those who made the solemn gesture of lining the road for the funeral from Ballinaleck Lane to Carrickcruppen Chapel. We, as a family, drew much comfort from seeing you along his final journey.

It is our intention when government restrictions are lifted, and life returns to normal, that we will mark Sean’s passing with you all in the form of a memorial mass and meal, where we can share many stories and memories of Sean's life.

Sean’s month’s mind mass will be this Sunday 19th April at 11:30am in SS Peter and Paul’s Bessbrook. Mass will be streamed online on the Parish Of Lower Killeavy Facebook page for anyone who is able to access it and wishes to watch.

We cannot thank everyone individually but hope that this notice will convey to you how much we appreciate you and how you have all helped immeasurably in our grief and we will pray for you.

Our Lady of Knock pray for us.
