Dear George, many many years since I have seen you. I was just a young seminarian at Saint John and Paul when you befriended Father Doyle (God rest his soul) and I always remember your kindness and exceptional generosity in donating the stained glass window. I am so sorry for your loss and my sincere condolences to your son (the doctor) who was about 3 or 4 when I saw him last. Know that you, Joan and your family are in my prayers. With all my prayers and affection, Father ST Suton
