Our thoughts and prayers are with Ian, Jenna, Michael, Ryan, Nicole, Chloe, Dylan, Bobby, Josh and Bird’s extended family and friends.
“A character, without doubt a character in a family of many great characters. But while there are so many characters – generations of characters – there is so much goodness too, real down to earth goodness, and faith too. So many good people.
You just couldn’t forget some of the stuff… like “Bird” arriving to a wedding or some other event with the bottle of Buckfast tucked into a pocket or hidden under a coat or jacket…” (Fr. Paddy’s opening words during the homily at “Bird’s” funeral Mass)
