Re: [orthodox-synod] Memory Eternal
- Dear Fr Damian,
Kewl, Fr John the Igumen died the death of the righteous!
I know you will all feel a sense of loss, but I won't worry about his soul's
79 is ripe old age, a full life, and, well, all is well, I reckon.
Ach, the 8 Hymns for the Departed in the 8 Tones by St John Damascene say it
Grant rest unto the departed... in the eternal mansions of Paradise.
In Christ, and with empathetic sorrow for your loss of a friend and confidant,

- Dear brothers and sisters in Christ:
I wish to commend to your prayers the soul of Lisa Terry, a baptized
member of Holy Ghost Orthodox Church, Sterling Heights, MI. She was
on the 100th floor of the WTC on September 11,200l, attending a one
day business meeting for executives of the insurance company for
which she worked. Family members tell me that she was scheduled to
return to Detroit the next day. Memory Eternal!
