I'm here at your fishing spot, looking at the same River, trees and sky that were your last view 4 years ago today. There is nothing we wouldn't give to have you back here with us. Time has passed and things are changing but you are with us in every breath and every step. Love you always xx

"When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight" You gave us lots of wonderful memories to keep us smiling for all our years to come xx Merry Christmas Daddy xx

2 years on and there is still a big Krangie shaped hole in our world. Life has never been the same since we lost you. But I think it only fair that we go on feeling the pain of your loss, because we felt so much love in your presence. That and you would have whoever you're with up there driven demented cursing and feckin us out of it, if we didn't! love you always Daddy x x

Daddy, You taught us to always work hard, enjoy life and be kind. From you and Mam we learnt to follow our hearts and make a life for ourselves safe in the knowledge that if anything went wrong family will aways be there no matter what. We can't have our chats anymore but I don't doubt that you are beside me when I need you and that you still guide me to make the right choices. Life is a lot less shiny without you in it but we carry on and make the most of it because we had a wonderful father who taught us well. Love you always xx Happy Fathers Day xx

I will cherish the times we spent together. Every time we met you used to say "ah sure didn't I used to hold your hand through your cot". I'm really going to miss you and Ill never forget you.Rest in peace xx

What a wonderful man - Mick O'Neill. I will always be grateful to you for loving my son Jamie. You were an amazing man, but we all have such wonderful memories of you. Making mischief between myself and Stephanie at the wedding when you made me tell her you were a 'Paddy' to get me into trouble. RIP Mick in the great fishing lake in the sky xxx

Mick was a great neighbour to grow up beside. Very funny and always playing jokes. I remember terrifying him for a change when he let us drive his van as kids in Smiths Field and i went skidding across the grass. He didnt let us drive again in a hurry. R.I.P Mick youl never be forgotten especially when your fabulous family is around. xx

I met Mick and Ann last year in London for an hour or so, the ‘so’ being 7 or 8 hours later, after we had lunch, a few drinks, dinner and a few more drinks and lots of laughs a few tears and more laughs we wobbled for home. It was the best day of my few days away and I treasure the memories. Love you dear friend and will miss you terribly XXX

On Tuesday 17th of September, my family lost someone very special. Words can't describe the feeling of emptiness that his passing has impacted on all of us. His family are his world and my auntie Ann is the centre of it. Warm, funny, generous, caring and full of divilment, we will miss you Mick, like you will never know. xxx
