A Fond Farewell
Today we say our goodbyes....
During the short span of time I've known you, I have come to respect and admire you. for your dedication and tenacity in working for the poor, to think, you're not one of them...
I will miss seeing you at the altar, celebrating mass. I will miss hearing your voice live over the mic and I will miss your singing. I will miss your jokes as we wait for the processional to start. I will miss your wholehearted laughs, your whole body joining the merriment.
Nuestra will never be the same without you but I know you wouldn't have wanted us to mourn for long, there are things to be done, projects to complete and I know you would have wanted us to complete them and be of help to those who are in need.
Salute! Father Joel. Enjoy your heavenly reward, you well deserve the rest and the bounty the Lord surely has provided for you. We will miss you indeed.
