Dearest Carmel, no words can express my sadness for your loss. I just wanted to say, in life you rarely meet angels like you. You have enhanced Philip's life. You loved him, looked after him. You were a huge part of his life. You are a gentleman who commands respect. I will never be able to thank you enough for taking care of our wonderful father. You extended his life beyond our expectations. You are responsible for all of the good times, laughs, and fun. You have to dig deep for Philip to understand how important it is now with your lovely wife. Philip wants you to enjoy your life. I, we, the Gemmells know you are a total angel gem and totally special. You will always be a friend to us.
We had an exceptional experience when my father was being looked after by Carmel. It made his last few weeks special and gave him back his dignity. It was marvellous to know he was being looked after by such a safe pair of hands.
