My wife Eileen and I feel so sad for the departure of Brother Joe. Eileen was his secretary at the Pontifical Mission in Jerusalem for about 9 years prior to his becoming the Vice Chancellor of the Bethlehem University. We both extend our sincere condolences to the Christian Brothers of de La Salle Community as well as all the members of his family. He is truly a man to be remembered for his dedication in helping the Palestinian people in the Holy Land in various venues in addition to his helping students at Bethlehem University. May he rest in peace.
