Absent Friends

“In memory of our fallen comrades Hugh McVeigh, Andy Craig, Brian (Barney) O’Raw, 3rd battalion Ballybeen. ‘Gone but not forgotten’ Quis separabit.” Banff Walk/Drumadoon Drive, Ballybeen, Belfast.

“Absent Friends:

The time has come to say goodnight
for every road must end,
to the ones who care and they’re always there
our very special friends.

And when it’s time for us to go
and our long journey ends,
you’ll never be alone you see
you’ll be with absent friends

Let’s raise a glass to absent friends
for every road must end,
You’ll always be there in our hearts
our special absent friends”

“Sadly missed along life’s way/Quietly missed every day,/No longer in our life to share/but in our hearts, you’re always there”

“Resting where no shadows fall/In peaceful sleep they await us all,/friends will link the broken chain/When one by one we meet again.”
