Fr Hannon in his homily said: “(John’s) death was so unnatural and out of the order of life. What has happened is such a hard task for his parents John and Claire and family to ask them to accept. Things happen and to accept them doesn’t come easy.

“From talking with his parents I know that John was a very honest, very correct and very charitable man. He didn’t like a wrong word said about someone. He adored all of his nephews and niece.

“He had a doctorate in philosophy from Maynooth and Trinity Colleges. His hobby was flying and he did that for the last 30 years. He was a skilled craftsman, filled with knowledge and intelligence but was also a very religious man.

“Trying to put John’s words into what I want to say is that there are no accidents in life. (What happened) was an incident in his journey to his eternal make-up.

“Faith lifted him to the promised land. He is saying to his family that he is alive. When they go up to him in (heaven) they will all be together again. Love will remain eternal and love is the name of the game.”
