In loving memory of Kevin Paul O'Toole who sadly passed away on 27th April 2018, aged 78 years.
Dear Husband of Betty, proud and treasured Dad of Angela, Tony, Caroline, Gary and Rachael, much loved Popsie to his Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren and a loved Father in Law and Brother who will be lovingly remembered by all.

Kevin was born in Drimnagh in Dublin. The third boy in a family of five children: Tony, Pat, Kevin, Carmel and Maura. He came to England in 1957 and was later joined by his lovely wife to be Betty. Kevin was a talented singer and spent lots of time making music and performing in gigs around the county and beyond. He is adored by his five children, 15 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren.

What is dying?.
I am standing on the sea shore.
A ship sails to the morning breeze and starts for the ocean.
He is an object of beauty and I stand watching him till at last he fades on the horizon, and someone at my side says " he is gone".
"Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all; he is just as large in the mast, hull and spars as he was when I saw him, and just as able to bear his load of living freight to it's destination.


The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in him; and just at the moment someone at my side says "he is gone" there are others who are watching him coming, and other voices take up a glad shout, "THERE HE COMES"__and that is dying.

Charles Henry brent.

POPSIE

When no one else can understand me, when everything I do is wrong

You give me hope and consolation
You give me strength to carry on

And I still don't dare sit in your chair
I fear you'll whack me with your shoe.

But thats the wonder
The wonder of you

And when you smile the world is brighter
We look to you as our O'Toole King

Your love to us is worth a fortune
Your love to us is everything

I'll guess I'll never know the reason why
We love you like we do
But That's the wonder
The wonder of you
