It is with deep regret and heavy heart that we inform you of the loss of one of our most active members, Greg Wightman. Greg and Belinda Wightman are not Irish in anyway and yet they both provided great support and happiness for the IIV. They volunteered, provided their lovely home for parties, provided fantastic musical evenings, and always were happy and gracious. We extend our condolences to Belinda Wightman Shannon Gallagher and Eoin O'Gallachoir for their troubles.

May the good saints protect you,
And bless you today.
And may troubles ignore you,
Each step of the way.
