The Communications Department of the Archdiocese of Detroit shares Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron’s response to the death of Saginaw Bishop Joseph R. Cistone:
 

Since his first days in Saginaw, Bishop Cistone was committed to being a loving and zealous pastor for his priests and his people. I offer them, and the bishop’s family, my heartfelt condolences. For myself, I’ve lost a friend and a brother. In a year of many challenges, and particularly in these last months of his struggle with cancer, I was edified by the confident hope with which he faced his illness. May the Lord welcome him home this day.
