A message for the friends of Jeanne Colvin and members of Malahide Bridge Club.

Hello everyone.

It has been two and a half months since the untimely passing of my wife Jeanne Colvin. While it has been a new and at times rocky road since November for myself and family, there has been an incredible outpouring of support from the Malahide Bridge Club.

I cannot say "Thank You" enough to all of you in the club for how you kept in contact with Jeanne after her diagnosis. Irrespective of that reason, you all were the highlight of her week and she looked forward to games and the away days/weekends. I was always updated each night on the results and the very occassional "faux pas" she made. She had a bright and sharp mind, loved the challenge of each board and the few glasses of vino or otherwise and the chats.

The club gave Jeanne one of her relaxing regular treats and through that increased her friendship circle many of whom she would consider great craic. She loved the few sessions in our house and although I would make myself scarce and disappear upstairs the laughs were infectious and loud. 

I was very heartened by the show of support via RIP.IE and at the funeral/cremation. You, the members of the Malahide Bridge Club stood tall for Jeanne and should know that your beautiful considerations, messages/flowers before and after were so much appreciated by Jeanne, myself and the family. We will never forget your kindness and caring thoughts.

May you all have many more brilliant "boards", good laughs and health.

Best wishes for the continued future of the club.

John Colvin.
