I'm so sorry.

May his Memory be Eternal, and may God grant healing and strength to those who mourn his loss.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
