Elaine Crowley is remembering her father in a special way today as she marks 21 years since his passing.

The TV presenter shares some sweet pictures of her father on Instagram along with an emotional message explaining why today’s anniversary is a bitter sweet one.

“21 years ago today my heart broke into a million pieces when I lost my Papa bear.

“This year he won’t be so lonely cause his beloved Mary V joins him in heaven. Love you and miss you every day Dad. Xx”

In November of last year Elaine Crowley shared the passing of her beloved Mam, Mary Crowley. She passed away surrounded by her family in Cork at the age of 80 and since then Elaine has been vocal about her heartbreak over her loss.

Speaking with the Ireland AM presenter at Virgin Media’s spring launch she opened up about how grateful she is that she got to spend so much time with her during the last year as she said goodbye to the Elaine show after ten years.

“My mom was really, really sick when this change was happening and it was a blessing because I got to spend Sundays to Thursdays with her for three months that I wouldn’t have had otherwise, and you can’t put a price on that.”

“That’s invaluable to me the time I had with my mother, I cared for her and we kept her at home. I gladly would give up a million weekends to do that again, so do I have any regrets? Absolutely not.”

Reflecting on 2021, Elaine shared that it was an incredibly difficult year for her as it was for many people during the pandemic; “The loss of my mother was absolutely crippling and the grief is overwhelming sometimes and I’m still dealing with that.”

“But I’m very aware that so many other people are struggling now as well and going through a really tough time. So in one way I count myself really, really lucky, to have had 2021.”

“They say the price of love is grief and that’s really what it is,” she added.

We are sending our thoughts to Elaine and her family today.
