Testimonial from Joan, an American lady who came to me with a date of birth and a silver coffee pot…

“We are now home safe and sound, and had a fabulous trip.  YES, we visited the village and we found the gravesite!! I had chills, and it was an absolute thrill for me to find it in this little graveyard by the church surrounded by cows in the field We could even read some of the inscriptions – it was just amazing!!  I can’t thank you enough for all your time and efforts in gathering all the information for me.  I only wish my Mother were alive, as she would have loved to know all the pieces of the puzzle.  It was truly the highlight of the trip for me, and for sure, we had many highlights.  We also went through the neighboring town where Patrick was baptized, and we took tons of pictures everywhere.  We even went to the neighboring local pub and celebrated after we found the gravesite!!”
