MACKINTOSH (Embo) - The family of the late John Gilbert Mackintosh of Embo would like to extend thanks to the many people who sent expressions of sympathy following the loss of their father and grandfather. Heartfelt thanks are due to carers Evelyn and Kirsteen, to all the nurses and staff at Migdale Hospital who cared for John so lovingly and well in the last weeks of his life and who were also so very kind to his family; especial thanks to the Rev. Carol Anne Porter for her pastoral care and for the wonderful tribute and comforting service held in Dornoch Cathedral; to the Lairg Gaelic Choir for their very moving and uplifting Gaelic invocation; to all those who attended from near and far, for raising their voices and singing Grannie's Heilan' Hame one last time for John. Grateful thanks to Willie Fraser for piping the Mackintosh Lament and other grand tunes as we accompanied John on his last journey through Dornoch. Thanks also to The Embo Trust for allowing us to use the hall and to the Embo Café for closing in order to allow us to host the funeral tea. A wonderful spread was provided by Kenny Mackay and his staff from the Coach House in Dornoch. Stephen Mackintosh provided the livestream from the cathedral to allow all those who could not attend in person to join in with us, no matter where they were. The beautiful floral tributes were provided by Sandra from The Flower Shop in Tain and the barley sheaf from Ian Crisp. Suzee McClenaghan of Mairi Urquhart & Son deserves a special mention for making everything run so smoothly and professionally. Lastly, thanks to all who contributed so generously to Urras Euraboil (The Embo Trust). The sum of £1104.46 was raised.
