Adieu Jean Wil

Yesterday we said good-bye to Jean Wil. Father Charlie and Father Marc led a beautiful mass. Jean Wil's older brother Honel gave a nice speech at the end. All of Jean Wil's family attended.

Jean Wil's tomb is underneath a large tree behind the house Father Marc will one day live in. It is nice to have him on the property. I will be visiting him frequently.


  1. I thought about you all day yesterday, Paige. The service held for Jean-Wil looked beautiful. I know it helped all of you say your final good-byes. I am happy you will have a peaceful place to go to when you need to remember your dear friend. I love you.

  2. I, too, thought about you, Paige, and all of the people who were touched by Jean-Wil in his short lifetime. He has a beautiful place to rest: surrounded by many people who loved him!
    I have a beautiful picture of Jean-Wil and you that was taken at the tenth anniversary Mass on Epiphany. It will be waiting for you when you return home to Phoenix. He was smiling, as were you...it's precious!
