How do we say goodbye to someone we love? We all admired John’s great courage these last six months as he battled cancer. John taught us how to die with dignity.
And he was no stranger to ill health. In the late 1960’s, while teaching at Cardinal Hayes and studying for a Master’s in math at Yeshiva University, doctors removed more than half his stomach. These past few weeks, he told me over and over again how grateful he felt to Maria and Sue, to Benson and to all the staff at Champagnat Hall who cared for him so lovingly and professionally. THANK YOU!
