I was so sorry to hear of Moe's death. We will miss having him as a catechist here at Annunciation parish where he taught his students so much more than scripture and doctrine. He modeled for them faith, kindness and generosity. With students he had the honesty to acknowledge that our relationship with God doesn't always come easy but that it is one of the relationships most worth our effort of pursuing. As a colleague I will miss his passion for our faith, his reflective questions and willingness to try new methods if they could bring even one student closer to God. Moe, may you enjoy for all eternity the presence of The One who loves you best. Til we meet again at the heavenly banquet my friend. Peace!
