We just got word that a friend of ours succumbed this morning to injuries received in a motorcycle accident last Monday. He was a firefighter in the Birmingham, AL area and the local firefighters in VA (where the accident took place) rallied around his wife from the beginning, never leaving her side. The local Orthodox priest was also there. His injuries were severe and he never regained consciousness. Please pray for the servant of God, Phillip, his wife of one year, Larisa, and all of their family and friends.
