Month's Mind

Thomas (Tom) Murphy

Thomas (Tom) Murphy

Viewmount, Paulstown, Kilkenny

Along the road of suffering,
You found a little lane;
That took you up to Heaven,
And ended all your pain.
You may be out of sight,
We may be worlds apart;
But you are always in our prayers,
And forever in our hearts.

In tears we saw you sinking,
We watched you fade away,
Our hearts were almost broken,
You fought so hard to stay,
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peacefully free from pain,
We could not wish you back,
To suffer that again.

Just a prayer from the family who loved you,
Just a memory fond and true,
In our hearts you will live forever,
Because we thought the world of you.

The family wish to thank St. James' Hospital, Dublin, for the excellent care Tom was given during his illness, especially to Dr. Larry Bacon and his team, Lorraine, Carmel Ann and Peter and to all the support staff. Dr. Gallagher and Staff at Gowran Medical Centre, The Carlow/Kilkenny Homecare Team, Lisa, Catherine and Susan. Our family, neighbours and friends and to all who called to the house and sent Mass cards. To Glanbia, Healys Pharmacy, S. Somers & Sons Funeral Directors and to Fr. Kelly (Paulstown).

The Month's Mind Mass for Tom will take place at 11.30 on Sunday, the 24th of October 2021, in The Church of the Assumption, Paulstown.

Much loved and sadly missed every day by your family.
