Dear Mrs. Heaney,
I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. Even though I did not know him personally I feel a great connection to Ireland through his poetry. I have declaimed two of his poems this year at school; "Digging" and "Exposure". I like these poems because they bring me back to Ireland, where both of my parents were born. Your husband was a great poet and will remain in Irish history forever. Seamus was an inspiration...

I was in Ireland during your passing, there is a poetry reading 24 April on Bainbridge Island WA, USA
where poets including myself explore the theme for National Poetry month: "Do not be afraid". You are an inspiration, always. God Bless you and your family.

Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of your dear love one. “And no resident will say: I am sick…” Isa 33. In this time of a loss of someone special in our lives be comforted to know God cares and will help us endure through his love with comfort and peace. We miss this talented person whom many no doubt respected and admired.

With deepest sympathy to the family during your time of sorrow. God is for us a refuge and strength. (Psalms 91:2) May you find the needed strength from God, family and friends.

Homeless Adult Students in the East Bay spent 6 weeks reading "Beowulf" in your translation. I have not taught a more exciting class. At its end we read "Digging". Your words lifted them out of their fraught world and into yours. You are with us in all ways. Thank you, Seamus
