Dear Marlene,
My most sincere sympathy for the loss of J.M. Drake. He was my mentor while I was preparing to go back to school and also while I was a petroleum engineering student at the Colorado School of Mines. He was a great person and I miss him since I was communicating with him till a month before he was gone. May God bless J.M. and all of you in your family.

Having worked with JM prior to 2000, I remember his conscientiousness in his approach to his work and a project.

Such an occurrence as this, just as he is approaching his retirement, seems stunning and to have robbed him of something for which he worked so hard for so many years, a peaceful independence wherein he would be able to do what he wanted.

But it also robbed his wife, to which my heart goes out, of the same thing, but with him. I know he will look down over and guide her with the same conscientious concern and guide her to peace of mind and happiness until they meet again.

I have very fond memories of my Resurrection years. I always think of these as the Pilgrimage years not only because of the 2 journeys to Medjugorje and to the Holy Land but because of the inner journey I went on through RCIA, Small Christian Communities and Luke 24 with so many of you. What a great church congregation we were as we grew together. I came to know Marlane and JM then and my path has occasionally crossed with Marlane through the years. On this sad occasion, I send my love, Marlane and hold you tenderly in prayer, although I cannot be physically present with you. My prayers along with the Sisters of St. Joseph here are yours. With affection,
