F. Joseph Chithalen

CHITHALEN, F. Joseph – November 17, 1967 – May 1, 1999 “Love is a renewable resource, we need to keep making love. We need to infuse love to our arms like a global intravenous and turn ourselves around spinning and laughing until we die. And why should death be feared? Death is not an end, but a beginning.” Thanks for sharing in the inspired dream of the Joe Chithalen Memorial Musical Instrument Lending Library which continues to make positive changes in this community and others.
