Goodbye to Colette Fitzpatrick - Fitzy

Hi all, just thought I would let you all know how colettes funeral went today

her sons were amazing and were really brave doing tributes to her

they also carried her out of church, they really done her proud

the EVOC choir that she was in attended the service and Bernie Whelan who runs the choir, sang all the way through the service, her singing of In the arms of an angel was so touching and I am afraid I lost it there

what came out of the service for me was what a brave dignified, lady colette was with a wicked sense of humour, who was an inspiration to all that met her, she was very brave and everyone is going to miss her

I know quite a few of you on this site know and have met Colette

RIP to one brave lovely lady xxxxxxxxxxxxx

I too have been thinking of Colette today, thank you for letting us know. I'm glad the funeral went as well as it could for such a lovely lady, thinking of all her family.

Thanks so much for posting this. I've been thinking of Colette and her family all day and I know other friends have too. In the Arms of an Angel is a beautiful song and I'm not surprised it tipped you over. It must've been a really lovely service for a really lovely woman. xxxx


Thank you for posting this. She was a lovely lady who was admired by many for her humour, stoicism and generosity of spirit.

R.I.P. Colette.

Many thanks for posting this, it couldnt have been easy for you. I didnt know Colette but she seems to have been able to reach out to all of you, she will be sadly missed.


Thank you so much for posting this, a wonderful description of the funeral. Colette was everything you say and it's hard to realise she is no longer with us. We will miss her so much.

Can I just reiterate what Mary has written- I am so glad that the funeral went well. It always seems to me that this really helps the bereaved. I was so glad that I met Colette.

Thank you for posting this,
