私たちの敬愛する、オトーチこと、飯田ヤコブ志朗兄が、去る4月6日15時51分、闘病の末、74歳で天に召されたことを、ここに謹んで報告させていただきます。

精一杯生き抜いた人生でした。

10代で初発、以後、心の病と背中合わせの人生でした。オショチの一番弟子として、イエス様と二人三脚の人生でした。
最後は誤えん性肺炎でしたが、愛する妻、子どもたち、孫たちに囲まれ、温かい励ましの言葉を残していってくれました。

振り返れば約30年前、会社の渉外部門に勤務していたとき、仕事とは無関係の、フィリピンの小さなハンセン病隔離島だったクリオン島の一婦人から手紙を受け取り、師と仰ぐオショチに相談したところから、クリオン愛の会が始まりました。
下記のエスピナさんのメッセージのとおりです。

これからは、イエス様とオショチはじめ、先に天に帰られた愛する兄弟姉妹とともに、天国からみんなのことを見守ってくれることと思います。

これまでのみなさまのご厚誼に感謝を込めて。合掌

①シカゴ・フィリピン・アメリカ・エキュメニカル教会エリエゼール・M・パスクア主教からのメッセージ

Dear Kazue, Kazuko-san, Okachi-chan and all the rest of my Ainoki family, I was shocked on the information that Otoochi, we fondly called him Iida-san in the Philippines, died yesterday in Japan.

Perhaps I was still having in mind of Iida- san having sturdy and lean body and so self-disciplined.

Most especially when i met his family in relation with his association and tasks he took care with Ainoki Family, i found him he ‘s a happy good fellow and he has still much to contribute to the mission of the Lord via Ainoki. But you have all been together most of the time all along.

I hope and pray that by faith you can understand squarely and grace-fully his passing.

And I believe the timing of his death- on Easter- is worth our positive reflecting (or probably, he’s taunting us- for getting the high mark of resurrection on earth and in heaven).

I salute him, in behalf of my family, of PAEC, and of Espina-san and Culion people.

Condolence to Okaachi and Mamiko and Junko and their respective families.

Comfort and peace of the Holy Spirit be upon all of you in my Ainoki family.

Otoochi, now you rest in peace in the bossom of our God – creator, redeemer and sustainer.

Love and solidarity, Eli-san

③エスピナさんのメッセージに対する愛の樹からの返事

Dear Espina -san, Thank you so much for your warm and heartfelt words to our dear Otochi. Your words have touched us all so deeply, not only his family but all of us Ainoki family.
