In honor of David Engelke - a blessed sleep in Christ, dearest brother!
Have no fear, then. Now that the common Savior of all has died on our behalf, we who believe in Christ no longer die, as men died aforetime, in fulfilment of the threat of the law. That condemnation has come to an end; and now that, by the grace of resurrection, corruption has been banished and done away, we are loosed from our mortal bodies in God's good time for each, so that we may obtain thereby a better resurrection. - St. Athanasios, *On the Incarnation of the Word of God* par. 21
