In Memoriam: Father Byron
With tears and our hearts full of love, we announce to our faithful the falling asleep of our beloved Father Byron. He was the Father to all of us and after his many health struggles over the years, he joined our Lord in the Kingdom of Heaven late yesterday. On behalf of our Pastor, Father Nick, Father Tom, our Parish Council president, Dr. Savide, our entire Parish Council, the entire Sts. Constantine and Helen Church and Koraes School communities, we express our deepest sympathies to Presbytera Cynthia, Sultana, Evans and Aristotle and their families and relatives for their great loss at this time. No words can express the appreciation for the great sacrifice that Fr. Byron has made for this community for over 50 years and to his Presbytera and family that dutifully and graciously shared him with all of us. Yesterday, immediately after receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion for the final time, with Presvytera and Fr. Tom at his bedside, he looked up and into the distance, Presvytera asked him where he was looking. He answered “Paradisos”, and there in the Kingdom of Heaven, he continued to say that he could see the flowers and the greenery there. May the eyes of our dear Fr. Byron continue to watch over us and may we once again join him to hear him tell us “HAIRETE” in the Kingdom of Heaven.
