“Edward Kevin Daly, your time of faithful service is over. You have fought the good fight, you have run the race, you have kept the faith (Cf. 2 Tim 4:7). As you breathed your last and commended your spirit into God’s hands, you could pray the words of Simeon in the Gospel: ‘Now let your servant go in peace according to your promise’ (Lk 2:29).”

+Donal McKeown, Bishop of Derry
