    “Mr Curran”, you took a chunk out of life and you rocked the free world, always with a smile and a laff. You were blessed with a great bunch of sons and four beautiful daughters. I always felt welcomed in your home and enjoyed my many trips there. My childhood would not have been complete wo being a member of the blackthorn/bonser bombers (we still put blackthorn first). I cant tell you how many times Martha or Frank looked up from their dinner table to see the clan of Currans staring at them through the kitchen window. travel safe my friend. peace be the journey.
