I was so very saddened to learn of the death of Mr. St. Clair. I am the chaplain at Conestoga View, and we had many conversations. I called him "Mr. Ambassador" because when I first met him, he was always sitting in one of the chairs in the lobby, and he was so distinguished looking, he seemed as though he was "holding court." We discussed religion (I as a former Catholic, he as a devoted Catholic), prayer, strength, his wife and family, his career. He was a charming man — indeed, he was an ambassador. Mr. St. Clair also displayed a great amount of wisdom, especially when it came to himself.
Lately, he had been coming back to the lobby again. I will miss seeing him.
May he rest in peace, and may you, his family, find strength in your memories of him.
Rob, Tim and Family:
Our prayers and wishes for God’s grace go to all of you at this difficult time. He is in a far better place now and may you in time, fill your minds with happy memories of him.
Fondly, Pat and Jim Dixon
