"I met Seamus whilst working with him in Ealing.. I don't think I have ever met anyone that could light up a room like Seamus, he always made me laugh but he also had a sincere, very compassionate side and you felt you could tell him anything and he would never judge you. Such a shame such an amazing person like you is no longer with us."

"My darling Seamus
The sun set on me when I heard you had passed on.Iam not sure how I will never move on. We first met at work and we were a instant heat.I fell in love with you at first made me laugh,I was my best when I was with you.You are one of the most unassuming people that I have known.Seamus you were the most kindest,funniest,smartest,handsome and charming individuals I have ever known. You were loved by so many,your love knew no colour,race,age or boundaries. My brother was devastated when I told him as he never knew your name but he knew you were my best friend and he would always pass greeting from you when he bumped into you.I am now a young fabulous Grannie and I would have loved to introduce you to Shiloh and I will tell him so much about you when he grows up. My beautiful girls who you called your sisters were devasted when I told them. I can't wait to see you and I know we will be reunited some day. I am no longer afraid of death because I know you will take care of me when my time comes. Death you are a thief you stole my friend. I cry all the time when I see post about you. I hoped I would wake up and it's all a dream and the thought of not ever seeing your round smiley face and smell you devastates me. Rest in peace my beautiful friend and I hurt to think was Terry is going through. One minute you were there and the next gone.
I will love you forever and thank you for being you.zorora murugare sahwira.

"i was a student nurse when I first met Seamus. Sitting in an office with nobody talking to me, wondering how on earth I was going to get through the next few weeks. I heard Seamus before I saw him and he swept into the office demanding to know who I was. From there on I looked forward to him being on duty for his laughs, his particularly "Seamus" insight on the world and his support. It never changed when I worked with him. His passing has affected me more than I expected and tears still appear when I think of him and his laugh. Keep that laugh Seamus wherever you are, you will never be forgotten by all that knew you xxxx"

""To my dear friend Seamus, I still cannot process the fact that i will never see or hear from you down here again, yet still believe you are watching over us from up there whilst having a ball poking fun at all of us and sniggering cos you can see what no one else can.

The moment we first met at work, i knew we were going to be friends forever, we just clicked.  Then when you were seconded to work with me on a project i knew it was going to be hard work, but at the same time rewarding just cos of how you managed to ensure we had a laugh along the way even though there was a seriousness and professionalism side to be had with the task we were set.

I lost count of the times i would ring you to say i am on my way to pick you up to come to Ealing with me and you would say "I am just putting my shoes on". Ten minutes later, i would arrive, to find you answering the door after many knocks in a towel saying i just got out the shower and will be 2 minutes, then you might be ready another 15 minutes later after several glances in the mirror and splashes of Joop.

Then during our journey you would be flicking from track to track on the CD to find the loudest upbeat tune possible, to then have the windows down hoping to be side to side in slow moving traffic with eye candy on either side for that flippant comment of "oooh baby, he needs his arse slapped".  That always makes me chuckle, always game for a laugh, that was our Seamus.

The other well remembered quotes whilst working alongside you when you were trying to get across what your role was and when you became frustrated you would say "get over yourself love" followed by "do you know who i am, and who i work with" "my name is Seamus O'hara and I work with Carl Dorey the Incident Systems Manager and Gail Miller Head of Risk Reduction".

Lastly on the subject of work, like Lin said in her memory was about the Green First Aid Bags you ensured every area across the organisation had with the process embedded for life, which led to you featuring in many copies of Mental Health Matters including the 2008 Annual Report, with pics to prove it.

Finally, i just want to say it has been an absolute pleasure working with you, knowing you, socialising with you and talking everyday life stuff with you.  I was always happy to give you that reassurance you needed sometimes and likewise your wisdom and knowledge you shared back, often over a Starbucks or 3, or Vodka and coke.

I am so pleased you got your chance to shine working for the MET and that you and Terry got to move to Spain to begin to follow your dream.  I know how worried you were for Terry with what he had to go through and how in your own way you were always there for him.  

Love you forever Seamus and will miss you so much. xxxxxx

Please don't worry, there are plenty of us down here who will continue to care and look out for Terry, alongside the protection he has knowing that his soul mate Seamus O'hara is on his shoulder 24/7.

Now run along and party with the best xxxxx"

"Precious Seamus

You are my world and my soul mate, even though you used to know exactly which buttons to press to annoy me, and which ones to press to get what you wanted with that little innocent boy look, big beaming smile, and little giggle.

We came to Spain for us to live a dream life that you always wanted, sun, sea, partying and hosting friends and family and showing off all of what we had achieved.

When we first met back in the day, you was like a whirling dervish, coming on to the ward with all of your confidence, not a care in the world, always smelling beautiful after applying a bottle of aftershave on you, and always with a smile on your face. You brought a lot of happiness to everybody that you met at Church Hill House, and the coy way in which you hooked me with your banter during meal times, the alone time we spent in the snozelen, and you just being around me all of the time. (I can hear you saying “ F..k off I never), but you did.

You achieved so much in such a short space in time, getting our first flat together, moving to the house that I hated you & you loved, with oh please Terry It s Fabulous, it doesn’t need anything doing to it. (always rose tinted glasses) cos it did. Going to uni and getting your nursing diplomas, and degrees, all that achieved in your nursing career, and then taking a large change in your life by taking up the challenge of policing in London which I know was your high point and so  very, very proud to wear that uniform.
Seamus you have always unconditionally loved me and told me that every day that we have been together, and you are right we should have had a blessing/marriage but it was not to be. You supported me through all of my illnesses, and I know you worried so much, trying not to show me how you were feeling, but I knew!! That’s why I wanted to shield you so much from what was happening.

You had never been so happy as now moving to Spain, and beginning to live your life here. It was so fitting yesterday that when we were visiting you that the Fiesta band passed by and the Music playing the evening before with people partying all around you. I could see you outside hands raised, wiggling your hips smiling with the vodka in your hand and enjoying every minute of it.

My baby, I never thought that the last kiss we had that evening was going to be the final last one, Jay and I love you very much and we will all miss you so, so much, we never had time for one last cuddle, but you will always be with me everywhere I go. Jo, your little Princess Emmy, and Kenzie are going to miss you so much also.

Night night sweetheart, you deserve a rest, you’ve always worked so hard in every way,  but make sure that you are the life and soul of everyone’s party up there, we will be reunited again and you can tell me all about it

Love you so much (which I should have told you much more often), you will always be in my heart, thoughts, and the wonderful memories that
We shared"

"I will never forget Seamus smile and the way he used to greet his friends with a massive hug, his smell was always delicious and his infectious laugh and flounce when he walked away. Never forgotten always in my heart"

"Those of you who worked with Seamus and myself in the house on the hill, do you remember those huge green Bergen type first aid ruck sacks in every ward and department?
Well, Seamus lugged one of these into my office, it was filled with all sorts of super duper first aid equipment we would never ever use but Seamus was effusive about them telling me that he had the money to spend on these bags.
But Seamus I pleaded we only need a small first aid pouch with a few bandages and plasters, we've already got the red resuscitation bags with everything we could need!
No, Seamus was adamant, we should have these green bags and that he and I should meet with the representative after lunch.
Ok, I sighed.
After lunch I walked into my classroom to see the bag laid out on the table behind which was a gorgeous, well built  young man dressed to kill! A former para breathed Seamus!!
I looked at the salesman and I looked at Seamus who was by now in paroxysms of giggles and fluttering his eyelashes......I gave in and asked how many we were going to get. I know when I'm beaten!!

I will always remember you Seamus and I will always smile when I do xx"

It's so hard to believe you're no longer here.
But it's as they say, only the good die young
My memories of you go back to our childhood, through School & then our paths crossed again in adulthood. You were always the same, flamboyant, fun, caring and the life and soul of the party.
Spending time with you & Terry when you came out to visit us in Spain is a memory that I'll treasure forever. You must have brought every bottle of aftershave in the shop (we didn't need to see you- we could all smell you a mile off)!!!
I expect you're creating havoc in Heaven and looking down on us all keeping us safe.
You'll never be forgotten
Rest in peace
Love from
Donna, Ron and the cats"
