A precious and joyful memory
This is a photo of you Jean, with Patrick when you came to lead our Community Retreat in 2004 as part of Vancouver’s 30th Anniversary celebration. As you can see Pat is beaming to be in the photo with you and had proudly given you the gift from our community of the apron you are wearing! It is a precious and joyful memory we have of you coming to be with us. The retreat was in a little Anglican Church (St. Margaret’s) and Denise, who attends that church, remembers at one point while you were sharing with us you sat on the altar which is quite high! Most people would not be able to do this, but it fit you perfectly with your long legs and was completely fitting in the moment!
Jean, we send our love and gratitude for all that you have given to us and to our world in ninety years by following the call of Jesus. Let your light continue to shine!
