To Thank

The TABONE family would like to thank the Rev. Clergy, led by Tarxien parish priest Fr Chris Ellul who celebrated Mass and gave our beloved EMANUEL such a beautiful farewell ceremony on June 17, 2023. We are also touched by the presence of all those who attended the funeral service, sent flowers and cards, made donations to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, or in any other way expressed solidarity with us during this difficult time. We also want to thank the numerous village organisations, committees, as well as pharmacists, medicine distributors and businesses who held him in such high esteem. In this moment of grief, to know how greatly loved and missed he is, brings us comfort and strength. Please remember him in your prayers.
