Re: Death of Father James Lienert

Dear Mr. Hennessey,

First at all, I want to express you our sincere condolences for the passing away of your friend, el Padre Jaime.

Also, to acknowledge your kind and emotive letter to the parish explaining that the final wishes of the Padre were to be close to his beloved parents, which is totally understandable.

I shall explain that I am not part of the parish nor live in Coahuila and that I do not even personally met to Padre Jaime. Though, I share the deep grief with the ones that personally knew him (his family and friends in California, Texas and half of the United States, his parish and friends in Coahuila and much of Mexico, AND the other people that, like my brothers and me, met his essence and enjoyed his thought, humor, philosophy and compassion shared through electronic letters, snail mail cards and posts (Gringo Viejo, Missions in Mexico).

My sympathies and best wishes for all of you.
