My grandfather, and one of the most influential men in my life, passed away last night after a miraculously long life with Pancreatic Cancer (he was diagnosed 6 1/2 years ago). 

Please pray for John's soul, and for strength for my grandmother Priscilla and for our family!  (For the clergy keeping track, they are both Orthodox.)

I am the Resurrection and the Life.  He who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live. John 11:25

Fr. George,
Your grandfather was an incredible human being who will be missed by the many thousands of people he helped throughout his life, including myself.

Memory Eternal!

I'm sure he was a very great man and quite a fighter too for battling cancer that long.

May the Lord have mercy on your family.

May the memory of John be eternal in the Kingdom of our God! May he be forgiven all his sins! Aionia tou i mnimi...

My humble and heartfelt condolences to you, dear Father George, at this time. Although we have every hope in the Resurrection and life eternal, never the less, we love those who God has blessed us to love and have near us on this fleeting earth.

I pray the our Panaghia will comfort you and your mother and all your family at this time of sorrow. AMEN.

In Christ our Lord,
Alice
