    Dear Jody and Carrie and families,

    What a shock to see John’s obituary; I am truly sorry for your loss. He was indeed a most gentle soul and I was privileged not only to know him at St. Anne’s but to have him visit me at St. James when he was in town. Always a kind word and a smile. He will be missed.

    Blessings, Theo+
