May the road rise up
to meet you, Micheal.
May the wind be at your back.
May God hold you in the
palm of His hand, Micheal.
And may you be in heaven
an hour before the devil
knows you’re dead.
Go with God Micheal, farewell and be at peace.
We love you and will not forget you, Micheal Dennis O’Sullivan.
