Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you,

May the wind be ever at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

And the rain fall softly on your fields,

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May Brian’s soul and spirit rest in peace in the Lord's Kingdom.

Brian will be missed by so many. We were fortunate to live next door to him for 30 years. He was a very active member in the community. Brian always had a big smile on his face, time to talk and a nice word for you when you walked through Kirkdene Park. We will miss seeing him working around the house, playing with his girls and sitting at the front of house having a drink with Angie and friends.. R.I.P. neighbour. You will be very much missed.
