My Neighbor Michael - Memory Eternal
« on: October 19, 2009, 12:29:58 AM »
I heard today from my housemate that our next-door neighbor, Michael, was found dead in his home this morning.  I heard no evidence of violent crime in our neighborhood last night, so I'm inclined to believe his death was the result of natural causes.  Michael was only 60.

May the memory of the servant of God, Michael, be eternal!

Memory Eternal!
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.

In the midst of life death always lurks. :( I'm so sorry, PetertheAleut.  My prayers are with Michael and his family and friends.

I just confirmed this news for myself by talking briefly with Michael's son.  (I trust my housemates to tell me the truth, but I'm also a bit of a Doubting Thomas.  I had to find out for myself.)

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let light perpetual shine upon him.  A vow, O God, is befitting for Thee in Zion and a vow shall be repaid Thee in Jeruslaem.  Hear my prayer, O God;  all flesh shall come to Thee.

Memory eternal!
