ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
BRANNIGAN – Linda and all the family wish to thank the whole community for the love, friendship and support given to them throughout the duration of Bill’s illness. Kintyre Medical Group staff have been truly amazing in their care. Macmillan and District Nurses treated Bill with dignity and kindness. Bill’s faith was so central to his life and Father Tony and the parishioners of St Kieran’s ensured that, despite not being well enough to attend, chapel was brought to him every week. Thanks also to Kenny Blair and family for their help in making sure that Bill’s final wishes were adhered to with dignity.
MCCALLUM – The family of the late Matty McCallum would like to sincerely thank all relatives, friends and neighbours for the many cards, messages, phone calls, flowers and gifts received following the loss of our beloved mother. We would also like to thank all the carers at Carr Gomm who looked after our mum over the last few months, also the district nurses who made our mum’s life more comfortable and for the chats that she so looked forward to every time you visited. Also to the nurses, staff and especially Dr Lazarus at the Campbeltown Hospital for all your care and attention to our mum. To Kenneth Blair and his staff at T A Blair Funeral Directors for a very professional and caring service, also the Argyll Hotel for catering.
