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.
The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.

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! And memory eternal!
"I, Lucian, wrote this, I who am skilled in what is old and foolish; For what men think wise is foolish. So then nothing that the mind of man can conceive is certain; What you admire, seems ridiculous to others." - St. Lucian of Antioch

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