I met Rory through mutual friends and we developed our own friendship of sorts. I remember visiting him in the hospital when he was first diagnosed. I knew he was strong and I had faith he would overcome his battle. It came as such a shock when his leukemia returned. I am truly saddened by his passing. Rory was a wonderful person who offered me comfort during a very difficult time in my life. He will be greatly missed by many. The world is a darker place after losing such a bright light. I have a video clip of him playing guitar and singing a song that he had written for a friend we lost last year. He was so skillful at the guitar and the song brought me to tears. I will cherish it forever. Rory left an Irish blessing coin at the gravesite of the friend we lost last year and the day Rory left us, I wrapped that coin in rose petals. Rory left a lasting mark on my life and I will truly miss him.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of Rory. It was wonderful to know such a kind and talented young man. He was a great help to me when I moved to my home. It was wonderful to see him again a few years later. I will miss his smile and gentle spirit. May God bring you comfort.

I am so sorry to hear of Rory’s passing. It breaks my heart. We had some of the most positive conversations and he was always good at making me laugh! He took me to lunch one afternoon and I paid and he was so mad! Recently he asked for a redo when he was feeling better and told me he was giving me no such chance to pay. I said we’ll see about that! I’m sad that’s not going to happen, but also I feel comfort knowing he’s able to finally rest free of cancer and worry. Rest easy Rory! Tell my brother and sister hello up there for me and give them one of your big hugs from me 🤍
