My thoughts and prayers to you and the entire Flannagan and Real families. I know this is a sad and very difficult time for you, but rest assured you will see Liam again in heaven..........

An Irish Blessing:
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sunshine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

My stomach just dropped. I cannot believe this news when I woke up tonight for work. I am speechless. My thoughts are with Nancy tonight. Nancy if you see this my heart is broken. I never met a more gentle man in this world. He never made you feel like you worked for him but with him. He remined me of that when we reconnected on Facebook. I told him he was one of my favorite managers and I liked working with him, and he was one of the good ones. His response was you didn't work for me, you work with me. Such a gentle soul! You will be missed my friend, I'm sure the angels have a guitar waiting for you when you arrived in stead of a harp!!! I will miss you!

First, I am heartsick for Nancy. I truly love and respect both she and Liam. Such genuine and wonderful human beings.
I worked with Nancy in Star Market Beacon St and when Liam, then store manager would ‘drop by’ to visit it was obvious that sparks were flying and Nancy & Liam soon become a couple.
Love 💕 and prayers 🙏🏻 for my friend Nancy and family during this very painful and difficult time.
