Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,

If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Russian News Today broadcast here in America had a good piece on his death.  I'm sure they'll do more as the days go by.  When Alexandr Solzhenitsyn died they did several days worth of reporting.

Here's the story from AP: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=97843863. It gives many more details about the Patriarch's life and career.

Memory eternal. Lord have mercy on Your servant, Patriarch Alexei.

On the Interfax page there are links to a good series of related articles: statements by Putin, Medvedev, and Gorbachev, and articles about the funeral/burial and election.  They speculate that the funeral will be Sunday.

There were rumors that he could have died in a car crash, but earlier today the Moscow Patriarchy dismissed them (http://www.portal-credo.ru/site/?act=news&id=67116&topic=616). They say he died in his residence because of a cardiac arrest.
