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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Memory eternal and peace be upon you and your family in this difficult time.
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.

Very sorry for your loss. May the Lord bring comfort to you and his family at this time.
