1. Deepest sympathy to Elizabeth, Caroline, Michelle, James & the extended Hernon Family on the sad death of John. His funeral mass was a fitting tribute to a great man. May his gentle soul Rest in Peace.

  2. I am sorry we couldn’t make it over to say goodbye to John and to thank you Elizabeth for the kindness and lovely way that you both welcomed me , Anne and Gerry into your home when we were much younger. My mother Mary really cared for John and loved it when you came to Musicfield. I hope Caroline, James and Michelle are ok, it is a sad time for you all. Take care Padraig Mallon

  3. Fond memories of John growing up in Musicfield and cycling to Claremorris when he commenced work in Gilligans in the 50’s .Sincere Condolences to Elizabeth James Caroline Michelle Tommy Mary and all the Hernon Family on the sad passing of John.We enjoyed his last visit here in August 21 reminiscing on years gone by !!. It was wonderful to link in with you all for the celebration of John’s life . What a lovely tribute to your Dad . May He Rest in peace.

  4. I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Flash. He was a lovely man and I had the privilege to spend some very happy summer holidays in my late teens with my London cousins. Flash and Elizabeth were always so kind to me and treated me like a daughter and it was a very happy house to be in. We had lots of good times – Saturday nights in the Steps were a laugh (even if we did pretend at the time that we thought it was a place for oldies!) My heart-felt condolences to Elizabeth, Caroline, Michelle and James.

  5. May John be received into the arms of those gone before him especially Annie and may you his family find comfort and peace as you grieve for a lovely Man, husband and father . all his family are in our prayers.
