Lord, grant her eternal rest. We would like to thank the Sisters of St Joseph and the Lay Associates for their prayer, and everyone who has supported us in various ways throughout her last weeks in hospital. Thanks also go to the consultant, doctors and the entire dynamic team at M6 Ward at Mater Dei Hospital. They gently cared for both her and us at this very difficult time.  We also thank the Sisters and staff at St Peter’s Home for their care and dedication while she lived with them.
