It is with the greatest sadness that I write to you my Sunday message. Last Thursday, Fr Wilson did not appear for morning Mass and was found dead in bed. Last Monday, before my holidays, he said to me very strongly: “Don’t think about the parish too much, just relax and recharge your batteries! Don’t take the Kettering Parish with you!”

Dear Father Wilson,

God had a completely different plan for both of us. You have already met God in eternity, and I think of the Kettering Parish and you much more than I supposed. I remember you in my prayers. I will return to work in the Parish in a few days. Now it’s time for your rest – eternal rest in heaven. You have certainly deserved an eternal reward. Fr Gregory
