Depends on the mood
Hello everyone, I see that there is a sticky on this, but I wanted to let everyone know that my beloved husband and soulmate, the user Paisius (birth name Joseph Daniel Davis), fell asleep in the Lord suddenly and unexpectedly back on July 18.  He spent 38 years on this Earth and I was blessed beyond measure to have spent 18 years of that time with him, 15 years of that in marriage and almost 9 years as Orthodox Christians. It is absolutely and completely because of God working through Joey that I am Orthodox and at an amazing parish (St Justin Martyr in Jacksonville, Florida).

Joey is healed, he is whole, he is not fighting anymore the things that haunted him for so long.  He is reunited in Heaven with his Mom, Dad, and four siblings.  In addition to me, he is survived by a son and stepson (both in their early 20s), three sisters, and several nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, and grand-nephews.  He received a traditional Orthodox funeral and burial and is buried in the cemetery at our parish.

He enjoyed very much his time on this board and I know without a doubt that it made a difference in his life and in his faith. If anyone would like to send a priv msg, feel free to do so, I will be leaving his acct open for a short while longer before having it closed and setting up my own.

In closing, one of our priests said something at one of his services that is so simple yet so profound. In terms of our life and our relationships, this isn't a period, this isn't the end.  It's a comma, just a pause until we are reunited in Heaven.


Until our comma has passed Joey ... memory eternal sweetheart!

Thank you,
Andrea Davis

So sorry to hear. I'm sure he'll be well remembered on Earth, and may his memory be eternal under the indelible light of the Holy Trinity.

Doubtless the Creator of the world, who formed the generation of man, and found out the beginning of all things, will also of his own mercy give you breath and life again, as ye now regard not your own selves for his laws' sake.

Dear Andrea

I am so sorry for your loss. :'(
I've known Joseph in here and one other forum, and had a recent private conversation with him. He is a great poster, and a great friend. 
My condolences to you, your family, and everyone close to him. 

May his memory be eternal.
