François Even, attorney and the son of Louis Even, the founder of the "Michael" Journal, passed away on April 1, 2006, in his 83rd year. Proud husband of Marie Therese de Maisonneuve and beloved father of Virginie, Charles, and Pierre, he was also the dear brother of Gemma, Agnes, and Rose Marie. (The picture was taken in September 1999 at our Congress in Rougemont, when we commemorated the 25th Anniversary of the death of his father.)
François shared the Social Credit ideas of his father. He had inherited his father's superior mind. Being an attorney, he was the invaluable legal adviser of the Directors of "Michael". His expertise and judicious advice always helped us to make wise decisions. Always ready to help us at any time of the day, in his office or at home, he devoted countless hours to answer our questions, with charity and simplicity. He was the lawyer of the humble.
With all the Pilgrims of St. Michael and friends of our Movement all over the world, we pay homage to this righteous man, a great defender of our Work against the attacks of the enemy, on the legal scene. He loved justice; may God reward him a hundredfold! "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice; they shall have their fill. (Matthew 5:6.)
