What a beautiful and loving tribute to a wonderful and heroic man. His life and his love have encompassed all those he has loved, and helped, and touched, and treasured forever and ever.

His love for you, and your children, and your grandchildren, for his sisters, and his brothers, and all of their families, and all of his friends will never go away from any of you. He loves you, still.

When this huge and unbearable loss, when the loss of this beloved man, becomes too much to even bear, remember that this man would never, ever truly leave you, or leave this burden upon you.

His love is still there and you can feel it and you will know it, and it will never,ever go away. The heart strings of connection still tie and bind you together as one.

You will feel it and bring it into you and use divine strength to get through by day, one single moment at a time. We all love you and surround you and we are all sending our love and our prayers to you, now.

I will be praying for you all and hugging you from afar on Saturday, dear friend.

The only true consolation is that he is in Heaven, disease free, and basking in the Glory of Our Savior.

This photo is the Muldoon family I remember. It brings back memories of wonderful times we spent together in Miami. I was saddened to learn of Fintan's passing and wish you and your beautiful family peace in the coming days.
