» His body having been solemnly received into the abbey church the previous evening, Fr Nicholas' funeral took place the early afternoon of 6 November. The church was almost full with friends, Old Dowegians, parishioners and family. Among his family present was Fr Nicholas' sister Rina, 102 years of age, who travelled down from Liverpool for the occasion. Fr Nicholas is buried in the monastic graveyard at Douai. May he rest in peace.
