Repose for the servant of God, Jackson
« on: January 24, 2010, 01:15:02 PM »
Jackson, father of my boss/Proistamenos (senior priest), passed away last night.  One of the nicest men I've met, a dedicated volunteer to our parish, a wonderful Orthodox Christian.  May his memory be eternal.

Please also pray for his wife, Arlene, his children & grandchildren, that all find comfort, strength, hope, and love in their time of mourning.  Life to them!

Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

May Jackson's Memory be Eternal!

Lord have mercy and ease the pain of his grieving loved ones.

Grant them strength to overcome this sadness and continue Jackson's good works.

Amen.
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.

Memory eternal.
