Death ...

We heard recently on the television news of the sad death of two young soldiers, Sappers Patrick Azimkar (21) and Mark Quinsey (23), on 8 March 2009 whilst collecting a pizza from a delivery boy at their barracks in Massareene, Antrim, Belfast.

We discovered the following week that Patrick Azimkar is the son of D's second cousin, Geraldine. At only 21 it is hard to hear of such a death - especially as I think we had all maybe taken peace in Ireland for granted in the last couple of years.

Click on the links to view press releases and to see BBC film footage of the funeral and of a wonderful tribute to Patrick and his friend and comrade, Mark.

His parents, Geraldine and Mehmet, following his coffin - something no parent should have to do.

RIP Patrick and may God grant your parents and your brother the strength to carry on their lives without you. God bless x
