I remember my Dad, Tom Neylon, going to New York to meet the boat Elizabeth arrived on and bringing her back to Aunt Annies. (Apparently, I was only 3 if she arrived in 1949:), but I do remember it. I tried uploading a wedding photo of Elizabeth and Tom, but not sure I was successful. I remember Elizabeth and Tom visiting with us. Lovely people. Please give our best regards and sympathy to Tom and to all of your family. If you want to send me an email, I would be happy to forward the wedding photo. Mary Ellen Neylon (maryellen@onn-fwa.com)

RIP Aunt Lizzie. Uncle Tom, Cathy, Patricia, Tom, Michael, and Nancy, you were blessed with such a wonderful Wife and Mother; a strong, passionate, kind woman with a mischievous sense of humour! I remember her kindness to me, and my Mum, always sending us parcels, and the two of them sitting chatting and laughing in Ardnaculla on vacation. I also remember visiting you in Stoughton, and the fuss Uncle Tom and Aunt Lizzie made of me...having a welcome cake made for me....and taking me for a fabulous dinner in the Irish restaurant. I have many treasured memories of Aunt Lizzie, and Uncle Tom, and am so grateful for knowing you and all the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very sad time. Xx

Mrs G you will be dearly missed. I have to say growing up in Stoughton with your family was the best part of it all. From stopping at the laundry mat to say hi with Mike. To Sundays at the flee market with Gary and Nancy. I still hate onions. You gave us some of the best memory's anyone could have. Always felt welcome when we come over. Truly one of the best Moms. We know you have a great spot in heaven.
