I woke up around 12:47 AM and immediately thought of
our Warden... (all my lampadas were still lit for him...)
And indeed, got the news via a beautiful email that he
peacefully passed away, with his priest and two of his oldest
Orthodox friends and a newer Orthodox friend
who, to quote our priest":
"immediately began the first Litya for the Departed,
followed by the Canon for the Newly Departed
and the Prayer of Absolution for the newly reposed."
My Husband has known this dear, eccentric and lovable
man since 1991.
I met him myself 5 years ago this past November
and loved him immediately.
Please pray for us as we grieve, and for my Husband
as he will be very involved in the final things for our Warden
and for our health.
My Husband had 2 doctors appointments yesterday, Monday, in NYC
and his first day back to work after being on sick leave 5 weeks.
Please pray that he does not relapse and that I too can
keep my health up.
Our Warden's Orthodox names are Patrick George.
Please remember him in your prayers!
