Messages of condolence

RIP Vincient. From your friend and colleague. Teresa

Ms Teresa McAleese

To the O’Brien family and especially Laim, I was shocked, saddened and sorry to hear about Vincent. Many an hour I worked with him in Ballymoney. Liam, he talked about you often and it was easy to tell, he loved you. He also talked about his mother and the care he gave her. He came to my house for Christmas dinner after she died and my family remember him fondly. He also lent me a beautiful christening gown one time for one of my grandchildren. I treasure many happy memories of Vincent and offer you all my deepest sympathy as this sad time. June Teacy
