As one of her "Roofers" (Mark 2:1-12 or Luke 5:17-25) she would say that we were helping her to be closer to God, when in reality she was bringing all of us closer. While her physical form grew frail, her piety grew to herculean proportions and she is worthy of the honorific Servus Dei.

Solas Mhic Dé ar a n-anam.
