Grand Commanders Comments:


The memorial mass on the 23rd of February was an emotional event for me and I’m sure for all others in attendance. One of the things that makes Ben Ziri Caravan such a wonderful organization is in the way that we honor our members, living and dead. As we read through the names of the departed, each name invoked an image in my mind of that person. Each was a dear friend and each image came with a remembered story, or a saying, or brought to mind a habit that these friends, some long gone, had that made them unique. Thinking about it brought to mind a saying that Fr. Ralph Weishaur used frequently. “Each of us is unique and irreplaceable.” All we really leave behind in this world are the memories that people have when they thing of us. What better way to recall those memories than to have them brought to mind during a mass of remembrance for loved ones lost. I am so glad that I was able to attend and spend an hour or so with friends that are still with us and friends that are gone but are not forgotten. Friends that were and still are such a wonderful part of the tapestry that is our life story. You have all enriched my life and for that I will forever be grateful. Thank you Fr. Mike, Marilyn and Stan Gilliland and all who helped organize this wonderful event.
