Fr. Michael was always kindly and quiet in a peaceful sense. We will miss him. I imagine that the gates of heaven opened to receive him this morning with glorious light - just like the doors to his Church opened, the interior bathed in light, to the refrain of Christos Voskrese for Father just a few short days ago at the beginning of the Paschal Matins. Greeting him today no doubt were his boyhood priest, +Fr John Hutnyan; +Bishop John who ordained him; his dear friend, seminary rector and mentor, +Metropolitan Nicholas and his departed loved ones. Eternal Memory. Vichnaja Pamjat. Christ is Risen! Well done, good and faithful servant. Rest well as you await the Glorious Resurrection on the Day of Judgement. Christos Voskres!
