EXTERMINATE!


« on: February 08, 2009, 12:44:36 AM »

I just received news from my housemate, Athanasios (real name concealed for security reasons), that his mother, Joan, died today.  Her health had been declining for the last several months but took an unexpected nosedive this afternoon.  Joan was in her mid 80's, so she lived a good, long life.  To my knowledge, she was not Orthodox.

May the memory of the handmaid of God, Joan, be eternal, and may God grant comfort to Athanasios, his siblings, and all those who will grieve Joan's departure from this life.  (To my knowledge, her husband had already preceded her in death.)

May Joan Rest in Peace and May the Lord comfort and strengthen Athanasios and his family.

Amen!

Two corrections to what I said in the OP (My housemate was gone when I started this thread, but has since returned.):

Joan was in her mid 80's...
She was 79.

(To my knowledge, her husband had already preceded her in death.)
Her husband is still alive.
