Our beautiful daughter Aisling passed away in my arms at 11:15am on Friday 23 December 2011
Aged 20, her courageous battle with Cystic Fibrosis has now ended. If this has come to you as a shock please don't let it spoil your Christmas - Aisling is finally at peace and has taught us so much about true grit, tenacity, courage and determiniation. She even took control when she decided to let go and die, asking for me to hold her in my arms, remove her BiPap oxygen mask and take one last breath.
Here is a photo of Aisling with her American fiancée Chris.
