Sad loss

DUNLEER has endured many sad moments down the years, but rarely has the community been touched by the sudden loss of Salema Megsi from Mountainstown Road.

'Princess Samela' is a Facebook page set up since her death and it contains just a glimpse of the comments that hopefully will bring some comfort to her grieving family at this time.

Perhaps one sums it up, 'heaven has gained a new angel.' So true.
