Frank Caffrey CSSp

Frank was ordained in 1963; I the year before.We were appointed to Nigeria and to adjacent parishes. We would meet often. During the Biafra war, in another part of the country, we found ourselves in adjacent parishes and in relief work. We would meet often. At the end of the war we, with other missionaries, spent time in a detention camp, followed by imprisonment and then deportation. Later Frank went to Kenya and I to Sierra Leone. If/when vacations coincided we would meet. Frank died in Dublin on 14 April from COVID-19. It was a privilege to have him as a close friend. We plan to meet again!
