May he Rest in Peace
The Late Michael Crossan’s wife and family wish to extend their heartfelt thank you to all of Michael’s ex comrades and service men (IUNVA, The Military Police Association, ONE, 28th Battalion Association, and RBF) who travelled to the graveyard and did the guard of honour to say goodbye to Michael on his final journey. Also thank you to the pipers, Jim and Willie, for their beautiful music and for reading the soldiers prayer at the graveside.
We were greatly moved and touched by all these tributes. Michael was always immensely proud of his service to our country and you honoured him with the respect that all veterans deserve. It was a beautiful and moving gesture that we, the family, will always treasure.
Thank you for taking the time to be there and give us yet another memory of a wonderful man. You helped make a sad day so memorable.
