‘Ancestral Glow’

From the Irish famine came part of the OLoughlin clan

Over water, across the country, our name would span

Well Kevin now we’re here for you

To rest back in Pinnaroo,

And may all the generations sing,

in this rugged mallee land.

To a man who devoted himself. A special gift and I/we are truly blessed to have met him at the WCH. Gave me faith and comfort, at a time of the unknown with my premature son. Treasured our friendship.

Father Kevin worked tirelessly at the Women's and Children's Hospital supporting staff and families for so many years. He was such a loved member of the spiritual care team and his genuine care and commitment will never be forgotten. RIP Father Kevin and thank you

Ah Kevin, its been a great journey brother for more than 60 years, and as a fraternity member for the past 48 years. Your heart and your home were always a place of warmth and hospitality. Your experience of catching that train from Pinnaroo to Adelaide as a young child with Polio, gave you a special compassion for the children at WCH. You touched the hearts of so many children and comforted so many families. Love leads you home. within Love, Tom.

Such fond memories of Father Kevin when he was our parish priest in Freeling. Such a gentle compassionate man. I had the privilege to be Kevin’s hairdresser cutting his hair every few weeks in our home. Such a privilege for me Rest in peace Farther Kevin… Sheryl

Dear Kevin, Thank you for your enduring patience and good humour over the years. I was awkward as a kid and some of that awkwardness remains in adulthood. You always knew how to handle me, I slowed down and was always more considered in your company. Thank you for this pace and reflection. It was great to visit you in January and hear you read from your journals. Hearing you talk about the photos of our family members on your walls was fascinating too. Always interesting. Your personable wealth of knowledge may have been lost to us, but your journal live on. Thank you. Rest in peace. Nephew Nick
