L to R: David Hall, Brian Pigott, Jack Ray on the terrace of High Elms Manor before
the family lunch in memory of Sheila Marlin O'Neill. All photos by JT Marlin.
Lis was the last member of the family to talk with Sheila before she died, and Lis was asked to make special mention of Sheila Leech at the memorial service as someone as someone she remembered with special fondness, along with Hazel Irwin and Eithne O'Neill, who were not able to attend the memorial events.
Whereas the High Elms Montessori School was most visibly represented by many pupils at the Funeral Mass, today the school was represented by a table full of teachers and others involved in running the school.
Jonathan Willoughby and Phoenix Hawkins-O'Neill performed a reprise of the song that she sang and he accompanied on the guitar at the Crematorium service.
The song was "Singing Angel" by Sarah McLachlan.
The acoustics were superior today at High Elms Manor and I was able to make out more of the words of the lovely song than yesterday.
The last two lines are:
