Passing Away of Fam. Friend's Father
« on: June 25, 2014, 10:27:08 PM »
A family friend, Michael's, friend passed way last week sometime. He was 70, so it is not a complete surprise to his son but his death was not know for a few days and began to turn green and the coffin, if they do no elect cremation (not Orthodox) , will be closed. That can make it even harder. Also his one son is in prison and one in jail, and so the latter will not get to see hie grandfather put to rest and the second it depends. The departed's parents are still living in their 90s so pray for them that they may be comforted in the death of their son. And for his eternal rest.
True patriotism sometimes requires of men to act exactly contrary, at one period, to that which it does at another, and the motive which impels them — the desire to do right — is precisely the same.

Lord,  have mercy. May his memory be 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.

Lord, have mercy.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Memory eternal.

Lord have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
