May he rest in the Peace of the Lord! may the Lord grant comfort and peace to his family and loved ones. Lord have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Memory eternal!

I loved reading Fahrenheit 451 (and watching the 1966 film adaptation) back in high school.

God be merciful to us sinners.

No longer posting on this forum. Thanks to all the helpful people who inspired me. God bless.

I was looking forward to the prequel - Farenheit 450.  :D

Without his works I would not be a Christian today, and I would not have made it through my youth.

May the Lord God remember him in His kingdom and grant him his wish of Eternal Life.

I am reading reports and not even the atheists believe he is completely dead. What a miraculous man.
Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

Memory eternal.  :'( :'(

His novels and short stories have a special place in my life.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Memory Eternal.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
