Tragic Nadine’s family issue moving statement ahead of month’s mind mass
The family of tragic Nadine Lott, who died after she was brutally beaten to death at her county Wicklow home, have expressed their “heartfelt appreciation” for the support shown to them since her death almost a month ago.
The 30-year-old mother was rushed to hospital after the assault at her home in Arklow late last month, but she later died from her injuries.
This weekend Nadine’s family warmly thanked friends and members of the public for the “enormous outpouring of support shown to us in recent weeks”.
In an emotional message ahead of Nadine’s month’s mind mass next Sunday, the family said: “Nadine’s beloved daughter Kya, her adoring mother Claire and father David, her sisters Tanith and Phoebe and her brother Kyle, along with all of her extended family, wish to express their heartfelt appreciation for the enormous outpouring of support shown to us in recent weeks.
“We would like to thank those who visited our home to offer support and condolences, who took the time to phone, write or send messages of sympathy, support and prayers for Nadine, Kya and our family. We wish to extend a warm thank you to the huge numbers of people who attended the candle light vigil for Nadine and who came to share in Nadine’s funeral Mass and accompany her on her final journey.”
The family said they will always be thankful to Nadine’s friends, colleagues “and all whose lives Nadine touched, to our family, friends and loved ones” for the “kindness and support shown to us over this very difficult time”.
The statement adds: “To Fr Michael Murtagh, Fr Pádraig Ó’Cochláin, Fr David Brough and Rev Kevin Conroy, we thank you for your comforting prayers, guidance & beautiful funeral Mass. To Karla Tracey and Conor McCarthy, we thank you for your fabulous music.
“A very special thank you to An Gardaí Siochana, the Arklow Ambulance Service and the wonderful medical teams in both ICU and Emergency Departments of St Vincent’s Hospital, we are forever grateful to you all for the care and attention you provided to Nadine.
“Lastly a warm thank you to Bill & Joe from RSS for compassionately tending to the grave, to Niamh, Ned and all in John Sweeney & Sons Funeral Directors for your caring, empathetic professionalism at all time.
“As our family can never fully express our appreciation, we ask that this acknowledgment be accepted by all as a small token of our gratitude that Nadine always remain in your thoughts & prayers.”
Nadine’s month’s mind mass will be celebrated next Sunday, January 19, at 8.30am in St Mary & Peter’s Church in Arklow.
