Name:Mr. Ewen MacLeod
South Uist
Place of death:Uist & Barra Hospital
Date of funeral:03/11/2010
Funeral Location:St. Peter's RC Church, Daliburgh
Presider:Fr. Roddy McAuley
Additional Info:Concelebrating with Fr. McAuley at the Requiem Mass was Fr. John Paul MacKinnon, and Deacon Martin Matheson. The readings were in both Gaelic and English, and the Gospel was taken from the story of the disciples who met Jesus on the road to Emmaeus. Fr. MacKinnon (nephew of Ewen's wife, Agnes Ann) spoke about Ewen in his homily: “One word comes to mind when you think of Ewen – gentleness. He was a very gentle man. He loved his family and friends and always had many stories to tell about the old days. He was blessed with great knowledge and an excellent memory, and his granddaughter was the apple of his eye. Ewen used his precious gifts to bring glory to God. Our deepest prayer is that God will look lovingly upon this gentle man and guide him to his final resting place.”
Afterward Ewen was laid to rest in Hallan, next to his mother, father and brother and with his wife Agnes Ann. The large crowd at the Mass and attendance at the cemetery showed the esteem in which Ewen was held in by the community. A retiring collection was requested by the family for the parish of St. Peter's and the Chest Heart & Stroke Foundation.
