A letter from Mavis Fielder (Br Damian’s Sister)

Letter from Mavis Fielder, Bro. Damian’s Sister

My brother Roger, or Brother Damian as most of you will have known him, would have been very humbled, by the Requiem Mass held in his honour on Wednesday 3rd February in St. Michael’s Church, Alnwick.

I thank all of those who attended the service, I am sorry that I was unable to meet you afterwards. I also want to thank you for your kind words, thoughts and prayers. You all meant so much to Roger.

My sincere thanks to the Franciscan Brethren in Alnmouth for the love and support given to Roger and myself over the past twelve months. In addition, I thank the Brethren for organising a truly wonderful and memorable farewell for my brother and to Br Benedict who presided at the Mass.

The moving Homily given by Brother Samuel was both inspiring and humorous. It painted a picture of Bro. Damian that many will have recognised. It came from the heart.

I give my thanks to the Parish Church of St. Michael’s, Alnwick, for its kind co-operation in the arrangements for the Requiem Mass and in particular, the Vicar, the Reverend Paul Scott. It was a remarkable occasion, fitting for a remarkable man.

My warmest thoughts to you all.
