Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • I met Father W. at my then Parish, Corpus Christi Church. Father W. was a breath of fresh air when he came to our Parish. He enlightened his surroundings with his common sense, his to the point attitude, sense of humour, his love for his faith and people. He treated everyone the same and had no nonsense about him, as he knew his place in the Parish. Father W. was a great person, a spiritual leader and a friend, he will be missed. I had the pleasure of helping him however I could, which I knew he appreciated it and did not take it for granted. Father W, you are now free of pain and restrictions. You are free to smoke your pipe at your leisure without any judgement. May God Bless you and may you Rest In Peace, it was my pleasure to have known you and thank you for the memories. - Posted by: Nino Camara (Friend) on: Apr 18, 2023
