GRAHAM Helena Florence (Lena) 5th June 1916 4th December 2017 Her son Jim Graham, daughter-in-law Yvonne and granddaughter Rachel Bingham would like to express their sincere appreciation and gratitude to everyone who sympathised with them in their recent bereavement. Thank you to all who called at 'Ballycassidy House' Funeral Home to offer condolences, and also thanks to all who sent cards and messages or called at our houses. Sincere thanks to the Matron and all Staff in Gilbrooke Nursing Home, Clabby, who cared for Lena over the last four years. We are grateful to the Paramedics, Doctors, Nurses and Staff on Wards 1 and 3 of South West Acute Hospital and to the Palliative Care Team, who all showed exceptional care and sensitivity towards Lena. It would be impossible to thank each one individually, but we deeply appreciate the vital work which you do. Our sincere thanks to Austin Stinson, W T Morrison Undertakers, for the sensitive, dignified and professional manner in which the Funeral arrangements were carried out. Also, to Saddlers Catering Services who provided refreshments at the Funeral Home and at Rossorry Church. We extend thanks to the Members of Rossorry Church of Ireland who helped us, including the Sexton and the Organist. Thanks also to the Ladies who served tea in the Church Hall after the Funeral Service. We are very thankful for Canon Ian Ellis who conducted the Funeral Service and we really appreciated his pastoral visits to Lena in Gillbrooke and the S.W.A.H. We also wish to thank Pastor Harry Dowds, Stonepark Baptist Church, for his pastoral care towards Lena and for taking part in the Service. Lastly, but not least, we give our heartfelt thanks to Lena's former neighbours who visited her over the years. We especially acknowledge Valerie Cranston, who along with her late husband Tom, attended to Lena faithfully prior to her admittance to Gillbrooke. We would like to thank our respective Church families at Stonepark Baptist and Edenderry Presbyterian for their prayers, encouragement and support to us in these difficult days. We trust that we have not omitted anyone in our 'thanks' and ask that you accept this as an acknowledgement of our deep appreciation and gratitude for all your care, thoughts and prayers at this time. Graham Family - Clabby and Omagh.
