SYMPATHY - On the sad and untimely passing of Sean Roche of Robinstown, Glenmore last Thursday afternoon, sympathy is extended to his brothers and sisters at this time. Sean was a very gentle quite spoken man and will be missed by his siblings Eddie, Mary, Helen, Michael, Tom and Jimmy, their families, cousins, neighbours and his many friends and fellow parishioners. Sean was a great carpenter and took great care and attention to all his work, he loved the game of cards, 30’s, and was a great reader of how the game was going, quite by nature he had a very witty turn of phrase along with a great sense of humour. May his kind and gentle soul rest in peace.
