May he rest in peace.
"St. Peter's was full to overflowing on Friday afternoon for the Funeral Mass of Liam Aitchison whose life was so mercilessly cut short five weeks ago. Many of Liam's school friends and contemporaries joined with the wider communities of Uist and Eriskay in being present at Liam's Funeral Mass. We pray for his eternal peace, and continue to keep his family in our prayers as they come to terms with the loss of Liam in such a violent manner." (Written by Fr. Donald MacKay in the St. Peter's Parish Newsletter dated 1 January 2012)
