Then I heard a voice from heaven say, Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Yes," says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them." Revelation 14:13
It is with deep regret and sympathy that that I join with the Parish Members of St. Ignatius Elias III Syrian Orthodox Church, Lawrenceville, Georgia to pray for the departed soul of the beloved father of our dear Vinod Cheriyan, Mr. Varghese Cheriyan Cooliyattu (64yrs). Mr. Varghese Cheriyan Cooliyattu was called to his eternal rest on 8/21/2011 in Chhattisgarh, India. Dear Vinod is traveling to attend the funeral services in Karingachira, Kerala. Let us pray for the departed soul and for the safe travel of Vinod. I express our deep regret and condolence to the bereaved family and pray that the departed soul may Rest in Peace.
With deepest sympathy and prayers,
Fr. Mathai Varkey Puthukkunnathu.
