I am stunned by the news that my friend, Jo Jo has died. Truly he was one of the most unforgettable characters I will ever meet. This kindly man took me into his heart and taught me what it means to be Haitian. He survived the earthquake which took so many Haitian lives but by chance and The Hand of God lived to tell his story. He was one of the first children Sister Joan rescued from the street and always had the welfare of the children and St. Vincent’s foremost in his heart. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful rest in peace.
