    Jacques Hagopian was my teacher, man of God, servant of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His poetry always started and ended, mentioning Jesus as the Savior. During my last visit to California, we both tried hard to meet, but because of his health issue, we could not. Later he called me and left a message on my phone which I have saved.
    I wish I were able to attend the memorial service; unfortunately on February 4th, I am heading Armenia. I am sure God has illuminated my teacher’s, Jacque Hagopian’s soul, and now he enjoys the presence of Jesus whom he loved and cherished.
