Memorial Biography

  IN LOVING MEMORY OF CATHERINE HERBERT 1940 ~ 2011.

 

MY MOTHER CATHERINE WAS A TRUELLY WONDERFUL MOTHER, SHE GAVE ME THE GIFT OF HUMAN LIFE ON FRIDAY OCTOBER 11TH 1974 AT ERINVILLE HOSPITAL IN IRELANDS CORK CITY.

THROUGHOUT MY YEARS MOM USED TO ALWAYS ASK ME WHEN I WAS GOING TO MEET A NICE GIRL AND PRODUCE FOR HER A GRANDCHILD, I USED TO ALWAYS SAY SOMEDAY IT WILL HAPPEN.

MOM WOULD ALWAYS STICK BY ME NO MATTER WHAT AND WOULD NEVER JUDGE ME ON ISSUES BUT WOULD ADVISE ME LOVINGLY.

MY MOM WAS THE KIND OF WOMAN WHO WOULD RATHER DO WITHOUT HERSELF INSTEAD OF SEEING OTHERS DO WITHOUT, SHE LOVED HOLY MASS, THE HOLY ROSARY, AND MANY OTHER CATHOLIC DEVOTIONS.

WHEN I WAS BORN MOM NAMED ME AFTER HER FATHER WHO HAD DIED 10 YEARS BEFORE I WAS BORN FROM STOMACH CANCER, HIS NAME WAS DENIS PATRICK ALSO.

ME AND MOM ALWAYS HAD A VERY STRONG BOND, I NEVER MOVED OUT OF HOME, I COULD TALK TO HER ABOUT ANYTHING, WE HAD OUR UP'S AND DOWN'S BUT EVERYTIME WE WOULD HAVE MADE UP AGAIN WITHIN A 60 MINUTE TIME PERIOD.

AS I AM THE YOUNGEST IN THE FAMILY SHE USED ALWAYS CALL ME HER BABY BOY, AND THAT SHE WOULD WOULD BE LOST WITHOUT ME.

I ALWAYS FEARED MOMS DEATH, EVEN AS A YOUNG KID I KNEW THAT IF SHE EVER PASSED AWAY THAT LIFE WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.

ON THE EARLY HOURS OF TUESDAY FEBRUARY 1ST 2011 THAT FEAR CAME TRUE, AT APPROX 01.40AM MOM TOOK HER FINAL BREATH, BUT SHE WAS AT PEACE, SHE DIDNT SUFFER, SHE JUST FELL ASLEEP.

I CAN TRUELLY SAY NOT ONE WORD OF A LIE THAT MY LIFE ISNT THE SAME NOW THAT MOM HAS GONE, SHE WAS MY LINK, MY BOND, MY LIFELINE, SO WHEN SHE DIED I NOT ONLY LOST MY MOTHER BUT I LOST MY BEST FRIEND TOO.

I KNOW GOD IS GOOD AND THAT ONE DAY WHEN MY TIME ON EARTH IS COMPLETE I WILL BE RE-UNITED AGAIN WITH MOM, AND MY DEAR GRANDPARENTS, AND ALL MY LOVED ONES, RELATIVES, AND FRIENDS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME.

WE SHALL BE TOGETHER IN A PLACE OF PURE HAPPINESS AND GREAT JOY, A HAPPINESS AND JOY THAT NOTHING IN THE WORLD COULD POSSIBLY GIVE, FOR NOTHING CAN COMPARE TO THE BEAUTY OF GODS ALMIGHTY PRESENCE.

I MISS YOU TERRIBLY MOM, BUT YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTON.

HEARTBROKENLY MISSED AND VERY MUCH LOVED BY YOUR BABY BOY, AND YOUNGEST SON DENIS PATRICK.

 

ETERNAL REST GRANT ONTO CATHERINE O LORD AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON HER, MAY SHE REST IN PEACE AMEN.

 

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD THERE IS NOTHING I SHALL WANT, FRESH AND GREEN ARE THE PASTURES WHERE HE LEADS ME TO REPOSE, NEAR RESTFUL WATERS HE LEADS ME TO REVIVE MY DROOPING SPIRIT.

Psalm 23: The lord is my shepherd.
