Anne Marie Smyth and Alannah Smyth

Geeta I have no doubt that tonight after an unexpected and unwelcome departure from Kolkata you are now resting safely in the arms of your God The vacuum you have left behind can never be filled and all those whose lives you have changed especially in helping our Lotus Child Foundation is truly immeasurable Alannah and my visits to India and the building our schools at Kolkata with our volunteers were helped by you in ways only you know ho important and special you were The Hope Foundation were indeed blessed to have found you and you will always be remembered as the living legend of their Charity and I’ve no doubt in saying you really did practice the meaning of the word “Charity” as your left hand did not know what your right hand was doing so as to avoid being praised or recognised for your incredible work and unstinting generosity in Irish we say “Ar dheis De go raibh a anam dilis “ At the right hand side of God may her faithful soul be at rest Best always and never forgotten Anne Marie and Alannah
