The Burial will take place at the Cemetery of Ardon and will be followed by a convivial meeting.
Aware of distances, Easter Holidays and if ever, your age, we thank you for your potential presence and for the extension of this Invitation to all other concerned persons, whose existence we unfortunately do not know of.
We lovingly remember Jean Streit for his courtesy, honesty and courage. He gladly and graciously welcomed us during our first visit to Switzerland in December of 2010, while showing us several landmarks, including beautiful churches and a splendid winery. Jean also enabled us to meet several members of the Swiss parliament in Bern and to attend a political rally where we met cabinet officials. With Jean's guidance, we also helped welcome the parliament in the famous train ride into Sion. And Jean had the tenacity to take part in preventing U.S. President George W. Bush from coming to Geneva, due to war-crimes charges against Bush. We very much admire him for that. We're praying for him while we look at dozens of photos of our time with him. May God take Jean into His holy arms.
