A sad day today.
This morning, two food-service workers who worked in our building were in a terrible accident. One person has died.
Then, I just learned that JoJo David, our parish choir director, passed away a few hours ago, leaving behind his wife and young daughter.
After a long bout in the hospital, JoJo a few months ago returned briefly to our parish to lead the music at Mass. After the service, I went up to him, to tell him how much we all were praying for him, how much we cared. His eyes started to well up. All we could do after was silently shake hands for a long time.
Now, I will remember that moment for a long time.
Yes, a very sad day.
