Wow! I do not know where to begin.....As a Palliative Care Nurse - worked for Marie Curie CC for many years....Also I am a Mother, Sister, Auntie etc....I can see Bernie's book from so many sides! I have followed the Nolan's since I was a little girl - singing and copying every dance move to my vinyls in my bedroom @ my parents home - my Mam became a big fan cos I played their music so much! From seeing the girls in concert in 1981, having the pleasure of meeting them then and many times after...including their 2009 reunion tour.... I have felt they were part of my everyday life!
I have followed ALL their career paths, individually and collectively and I have cried...and laughed...with every event...good and bad...life has thrown at them. However, Bernie's journey has touched me the most....if ever anyone deserved a miracle it is Bernie....her zest for life and her sadness that she will not see Erin grow older is heartbreaking! Her love and devotion for Steve and Erin shines like a beacon throughout her book and her unconditional love for ALL her siblings is crystal clear. I am very very sad that Bernie's cancer could not be treated this time and her journey in this life is coming to an end :-( I salute you for you courageous, dignified battle to live....you are an inspiration and role model to us ALL....thank you for all the years we have been lucky and privileged to have had you in our lives...thank you for the music...but most of all...thank you for being YOU!
God Bless you Bernie, when God finally calls you home...we will miss you...but you will be one of the nicest, most beautiful Angels in Heaven.... xxxx
Please God give Erin, Steve, her sisters and ALL her family the strength they will need....xxxx
God Bless you all....
