For the repose of the soul of Brian
« on: August 19, 2009, 10:12:51 AM »
Brothers and sisters in Christ,

Please remember in your prayers Brian, an old friend of my wife's.  He was found dead on the floor of his apartment by his fiancee on Monday evening.  There was no sign of foul play and he was not known to have a drug abuse problem.  He was only 29 years old and leaves behind two young children as well as his fiancee and the rest of his family.

Memory Eternal!

Вічная Пам’ять!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
