Regretfully George's Mum didn't survive her illness and passed away this weekend. Obviously our thoughts, prayers and sympathies are with George and his family at this tragic time.

It's fine to post comments here in reply to this blog but we would be grateful if you did not message George directly. He and his family are shocked by their Mum's death and are in mourning. 
 
George won't be twittering or blogging or answering any mail for a while understandably so this is the right place to send him your thoughts and prayers.

My thoughts are with you and yours....

Sooo sorry for your loss George. No other bond is quite as special as the one a person has with their Mother. Remember the good times, the love and wisdom she taught you and know she's together with your Father once again.

Sharon: Greetings. I really

Sharon: Greetings. I really love this current group of singers on Celtic Thunder. They sound great and appear as they enjoy working together and I have recently become a big fan of theirs and Damian and I have something in common, we share the same birthday but, I am old enough to be his mother. I think he has a wonderful voice and seems to be an amazing talented young man and has alot going for him. I love the way Neil sings "Wish Upon A Star" and the way he, Ryan,and Keith sound in the song "Hallelujah". And I love the way Paul does the song "Sway" and "DOO Wacka Doo" and I love the way George sings "Hello, Again" and "Life with You". Please let George and his family know that I send my sympathy to them on the loss of his mother. Both of my parents are both deceased and I know from experience how that is-my dad had terminal illness and my mom was recovering from a massive heart attack that occured just a few months before she passed away and just like George mom, hers was rather suddened and unexpected. I hope this group of guys stay together along time and I also love the way they do "Ireland's Call". Would love to meet them all someday but, that is just a dream, I know. Would have loved to have seen them in concert here in Binghamton, NY, in 2008 if I had any idea they were in my area. My sister is married and lives in Buffalo and I just started introducing her to the group with my CDs and DVDs I have and I am trying to give her big hints that they are coming to Shea in Buffalo and it is near my birthday (make a great present hint but, would not count on it. She and my brother in law are dealing with his throat cancer and treatments for it). I do volunteer work at the PBS station in Binghamton, WSKG, and when they feature Celtic Thunder, I buy the CD and DVD and support the station at the same time. Keep on doing the great work and tell Ryan, Neil, Paul, George, Keith and Damian to keep up that great singing-I really enjoy their singing and their music. Sue at ladyabigail59@yahoo.com

My deepest condolences to you on your loss George. No words can soothe the heartache you are feeling right now, but I know from personal experience that one day you will be able to smile again and remember you mum without the pain of loss and only the happy memories in your heart. I lost my mom very suddenly several years ago, and the pain of that sudden loss was nearly unbearable. However, you have Carrie, Sarah, and the rest of your family that will help you continue on.

Much love

Words cannot express the sadness I feel at hearing of your mother's death. May your memories of her comfort you in the days, weeks, and months to come. May the God of all understanding and love comfort you, and may her soul, through the mercy of that same loving God, rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

May the wind be always at your back

The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Love,

George, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
"I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on the snow. I am the sunlight that ripened grain; I am the gentle autumns’s rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush, Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there; I did not die."

Much Love and Blessings,

George's Mother

Please tell George how sad I am to hear of his mother's death. I lost my own mother not quite 4 years ago so I understand the pain he is feeling. There is nothing I can say that will make him feel better except, perhaps, to let him know how much we love him and are sorry for his loss. Requiescat in pace.

Really Sorry!

I'm really sorry about George. My family and I send him our prayers. Sorry George Sad

My condolences

Hi George, I am so sorry to hear about your mother's passing. Jimmy and I are still reeling from the loss of Jimmy's mom a few weeks ago, but the biggest comforts to us have been the knowledge that his mom really will always be alive in our hearts and memories; she's happy and at peace in heaven; and we'll see her again someday. I pray that God will surround you with His love and the love of family and friends at this difficult time and that you'll be comforted by happy memories.
With deepest sympathy,
Patty & Jimmy
