      remembering a bright smile of my cousin and it's so hard for the loss of him passing on in 2011, let the angels take care of you up there and he was the most amazing cousin I have ever met R.I.P xoxo

    • Flowers in the Wind

      We were so saddened by the loss of Sam, a vibrant young man, with so much life ahead of him. Sam's death was really brought home to us when we visited the Memorial Bridge in Cashel Street.

      At our feet was a beautiful floral bouquet quietly moving in a gentle breeze. Sam's face smiled up at us, from a photo that had been placed in the flowers. We tucked your photo, Sam, into the wrapping with tears, so it wouldn't blow away. Rest in peace buddy, until we meet again. You are not forgotten.
