Farewell

Jan 15, 2012

It has been a wonderful 24 hours. The Masses, speeches, conversations and social gatherings of last evening and today have been a great celebration.  I was quite overwhelmed with the generosity of the speeches and your support and assurance of your prayer.

Thank you.   I am deeply grateful.
I will attach below some pictures taken by Peter Fleming.
