We didn’t get a chance to thank everyone last week, but we now wanted to acknowledge how amazing you all are.

As we now know Gavin’s mission was to bring happiness, strength, courage and to “never ever give up” and most of all to bring people together. We have seen all of this through our journey and the places it took us to get Gavin the best possible treatment at home and abroad.

We would like to thank The Laura Lynn foundation and The Irish Cancer Society night nurses and the local Palliative Care Team for being there and helping us while Gavin was at home over the last few weeks.

To all our dear friends and family, you have been such a great support for the last 3 years.  To the amazing hospital staff, both here and abroad who looked after Gavin.  To the community of Kilcoole, Greystones and Ireland, the love and support that was shown last Friday from when we left our house in Kilcoole was breathtaking. From all the yellow and gold ribbons to the schools and children and adults that lined the streets, to An Garda Síochána for your professionalism and respect towards Gavin, Greystones Fire Brigade who Gavin loved so much, Mr. Willie Doyle who made the whole process of the funeral arrangements the most hassle free process and most beautiful, to Christy and Conor for decorating Gavin’s coffin in his superman sign, our extended new family in Texas and Florida we thank you, and last but not least Aoibheann’s Pink Tie…You have been there all the way and continue to be our rock. We love you all xxxx.

We will now take time to ourselves, and then we will come back and continue Gavin’s Legacy … whatever that may bring….
