Will always remember Jim & Joan coming to our home on Duncannon St sharing their time and talent with the Knoll Family. Jim was exceptional. We are so sorry for your loss.

Nothing but warm memories of Mr. Loftus. A strong, reassuring presence to me and all the children who grew up and played on and near Duncannon Ave and attended Holy Child. May you rest in peace, Mr L!

To Chris, Ronan and Alannah, thinking about you all and the Loftus family today and sending prayers from Ireland, Jim was a gentleman and to be in his company was an honour. Mary Queen of the Gael pray from him.

Offering condolences on the loss of Mr. Loftus from the Hyland family. Mr. Loftus and his wife Joan were incredibly kind and good to myself and my wife when we came from Ireland. There house was always loving, welcoming and joyous. His intellect was unparalleled and I enjoyed many stimulating conversations with him. May he rest in peace with his beloved Joan. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam (may his soul be seated on God's right hand).
