Gasp.

Memory Eternal! I knew him well and regret he never got rest before eternal rest.
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,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
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

Memory eternal. Such a dear man, and a wonderful pastor. He had visited us only about a month ago. He will most certainly be missed.

Memory eternal!  I missed greeting him the last time he was at our parish and now I truly regret not taking the time to do so.  He truly is a dear man.   :'(

Memory eternal!  May he find rest with the saints and intercede before God for the Orthodox Church in America.
He spoke it as kindly and heartily as could be; as if a man dashed a gallon of cold water in your broth and never doubted you'd like it all the better.

Memory eternal.

I just got a message about it from a friend - the circumstances were certainly sudden and unexpected.  May the Lord rest his soul with the righteous!

When the OCA faced its the biggest crisis in its existence, Archbishop +JOB stood up for godly behavior and accountability. I pray the OCA's Midwest Diocese finds a worthy successor.
