Losing my dad last year ,well I don't think I have experienced pain like it , no matter how much time you think you have its never enough . My dad was described by many as a gentleman and I think that's definitely a nice legacy to leave . I miss him more than words can say but I am glad he is free from the suffering , he is with the angels now . He could have not received better care from all the staff in St.Francis hospice in both Raheny and Blanchardstown and I cannot thank them enough . Wish I could hear your laugh one more time dad and share a joke as we always did , love you always your pencil Melissa x x

I would like to thank the hospice nurses Barbara & Ailey for taking such good care of my Mam she always looked forward to them coming. They made her journey & ours so much easier we could never repay you both for that. After all she told you both you were her favourite you brought back her wicked sense of humour so Thank you for that & everything we are eternally grateful. Brady family

23rd May 2010, A day we will never forget, A day forever etched in our hearts.. the day we had to say Goodbye... A day that will never leave us.. A day we lost our Dad.. A day that we never wished or wanted to happen.. A day we our lives changed forever, A day where Dad's pain & suffering ended.. A day where our pain started.. A day where a journey into the unknown started for us.. A day where that journey still continues... A day that will continue ... A never ending day... A day we were happy his pain was no more.. A day where we were so grateful to the wonderful people of St. Francis Hospice... A day where we will continue to be forever grateful to you all at St. Francis Hospice... A day where our loss for our Father Frank will always be.... but it was also A day to be grateful for having St. Francis Hospice to help Dad and to help us.... Dad we love you.. we will always love you and you will be forever in our hearts.. there will never be anyone who can love us the way you do. Love and miss you so much more then words can ever express. Until we meet again.. Love forever & always.. Louise xx

How do you sum up your grief, your feeling of such loss and sorrow? Answer is, its not possible especially when it comes to the loss of such a fabulous person, My Dad, Colly Byrne. To try to pay tribute to such a great person in a short script is very difficult, the legacy of this huge character is hard to confine to small spaces! I have penned many words about my Dad over the last few years but I wanted to share this poem that I wrote in honour of my Dad. I hope that as you read this you will draw some comfort in your own loss and try to remember that your loved one lives on with you each and every day. I still struggle with the loss of my Dad on a daily basis but I would like to reach out to others to say there is comfort in the memories, the legacy and the lifetime shared. Dedicated to the Cherished Special Memory of Colbert Byrne: To try to sit and write, how much you are missed each day Would take us an eternity, we have so much to say Instead a few short lines, a glimpse of how we've tried To get on with life since the day you left, the day the music died Despite the fact you had to go, the heartache and the pain There is always so much comfort at the very mention of your name Someday we'll meet again, for now we'll just pretend That we are doing fine without you, Husband, Dad, Best Friend As we laugh amidst the tears, that so often roll down our face We know we are going to meet you again, in another time and place Smiling, laughing, joking, these things always will remain The beauty of what happens, at the very mention of your name xxx
