For Frere Jacques

My friend and colleague Jacques is undergoing surgery for prostrate cancer today. Jacques and I were fellow candidates on the Reserve Chaplain's BOTC at the Chaplain's school at CFB Borden last May. A devout Roman Catholic priest, unfailingly cheerful and fun to be around, Jacques often kept us going with his songs and jokes. Jacques is padre with an armoured regiment in Montreal.

Please say a prayer for Jacques if you read this page in the next few days.
