    Our heartfelt condolences. Colette was a good neighbour across
    the street for over twenty-five years. We had nothing but admiration
    for her strength in her recent difficulties. She will be sorely missed
    in our community.

    Dear Cousins,

    I was so sorry to hear of Colette’s passing. My sympathy to all Colette’s children, grandchildren, sisters, brother and extended family. I have fond memories of our time together at my sons wedding in New York in November 2000 and her visits to my childhood home in Daniels Lane, Aldridge. May she Rest In Peace. Kindest Regards, Elsa Brennan (née Donnellan) Culleens, Ballina, Co. Mayo.
