Father John Corkery - RIP

I just found out on Monday that Father Corkery died on Jan 23rd. I first met him when my Aunt Gloria took me to St. Patrick's Church for a Novena. We just arrived from the Philippines, 1976 in September. I remember meeting him and being totally shy. He towered over me but his kind eyes and soft voice calling me "little peanut", stuck with me all these years.

I haven't seen him in awhile but I always made a point of sending him a Christmas card. I wished I had a chance to pay my respect.

May you rest in peace Fr. John Corkery.
