My name is Edward Hennessey and I am--as I will always remain--a friend of Padre Jaime.
Esmeralda, Sierra Mojada and Quimica are among the many towns untouched by my footfall yet known to me, located in my heart as well as in Mexico, all because of the letters and words a certain man kindly shared both as their priest and their foremost advocate. The warm praise and emotion Padre Jaime's parish has evidenced in this time of grief and loss commands complete acknowledgement and respect. And that admirable outpouring is nothing less than anyone who heard the rich stories which converted many of us to distant admirers would ever expect of such a people.
According to the final wishes confided to his family, Padre Jaime will be interred next to the parents he loved in California. But we all agree on which side of the line his spirit will be. And California envies Coahuila in that eternal arrangement.
Persons wishing to express sympathies to the good father's family may contact his sister Geraldine electronically (firstname.lastname@example.org ) or by telephone (706-775-0073, with the mention aside that the Sun gets up two hours earlier here than it does in Sierra Mojada.
Please understand that those in Coahuila unable to personally attend Padre Jaime's funeral will still have a personal representative present if that is an offer of service to any. Yo estoy a sus ordenes.
