Ann and Sandy together again—in heaven

It was with great sadness that the parish and the community learned of the death of Sandy MacKintosh in the Belford Hospital on Wednesday afternoon, August 20th. Sandy had been very brave since the loss of Ann, the love of his life, but despite all the kindness and care he received from family, carers and friends, his health began to  fail over the past few weeks. When he developed a serious breathing problem a week last Sunday,  he was taken to the Belford.  He improved considerably, and  by the end of the week doctors thought he could return home.  Sadly,  he had a relapse at the weekend, from which he did not recover and passed gently to God on Wednesday afternoon. He had received all the sacraments, had Holy Communion regularly, and was very much at peace. He and Ann had been parted for only six months, and I am sure she was waiting joyfully in heaven to be reunited with him.
Her happiness in heaven will now be complete!                                                                                            (An appreciation of Sandy on page 2)
