For our deceased brother John
« on: February 18, 2010, 08:52:06 PM »
Our brother in Christ John died on Tuesday at the age of 87. A few days earlier, he would sing funeral-related Orthodox hymns in his house, I guess he had seen it coming...
May he carry well on to Heaven, memory eternal!

Also, pray, please, for his mourning family; wife, children and grandchildren (one of them is depressive and she's feeling really awful).
Though I've walked the valley of the shadow of the death, I've fallen not. Not completely. Not yet.

+Etrernal Memory.
May Christ Who is the Resurrection and the Life comfort his family and friends.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
