Dear brother in Christ Tony,
while sharing with you a copy of the photos taken today during the thanksgiving Holy Mass for your farewell and I want to share with you my personal Christian message in form of a poem:

‘I remember the times when you were there for me
through my many tears you helped me really see 

that you always there for me

you stood close to me like a friend, there for me 

until the end

I will never forget you, the things 

you helped me through, I saw my inspiration

it is you

you were always there when I needed you

I now will always have great memories of you

You would ask me “how are you doing?”

I would say I’m fine

as tears start to form in my eyes 

you always knew that I was really not fine

I look up to you and I see a ray of sunshine 
shining in on me

I knew God sent me one of his angels

when he sent you to me‘.

We will never forget you and remember that you are always in our daily prayers. Wish you an on going mission in the FIELD OF THE LORD wherever you are. 
I take the opportunity to THANK ALL those who joined our Christian service today while THANKING also all those who sent their message in writing.
YOU ARE ALWAYS IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.  May God rewards you for all your service in the teaching profession and for your LIVING WITNESS OF THE CHRISTIAN VIRTUES.
N.B. I thank Mrs Sharon Pace for being so kind to take some photos of today’s event and Ms Lorraine Vella for the copies of email messages and poems needed for today’s event, much appreciated.
