I was pastor of Our Lady of Holy Hope in Castine, Maine in '89 and '90 just before I joined the U.S. Navy Chaplain Corps. I became friends with Louise Biggie who was the music director, organist, cantor and church decorator. Louise has been a good friend to me and the children here in southern Haiti. She was one of the first to support my decision to come here. She's now in hospice care as her cancer continues to ravage her body despite all efforts. Please join me in praying for this very special lady and for her husband, Ed, their children and grandchildren. Thank you.
