Joseph Neylon – RIP

by in Thoughts :: Pensieri ::

I've spent the last couple of days in Co Clare with most of my family (which is why I haven't been answering emails as quickly as normal).

We seem to come together most often these days for weddings and funerals.

My grandfather, Joseph (Joe) Neylon, passed away last Tuesday so we were there to say our farewells.

My grandfather lived a very full life and passed away at the age of 94. He'd even written his memoirs!

I could probably write a lot more about the important role he played in my life, but I can't at the moment and I may never be able to.

He'll be missed

    So sorry to hear that Michele, hopefully the lifetime of happy memories (and he memoirs) will help to fill the enormous void left by his passing.
    94 is a great age, what was his secret?

    Thanks for all the kind comments.
    He had lived a very full life and died peacefully in his sleep, so we’ll remember him as being very alive and full of vitality.

    Sorry for your loss, although it’s good to see he lived so well, so happily and healthily and for so long.
    Maybe he’s passed the long life gene on to you!
    All the best,
