    life is eternal that’s what the lord said. So do not be saddened by the departure of the loved one…Because death is in fact only a step towards a life that is unknown to us.
    all our condolences.

    Dear Polina and Sosi my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences for your and our communities greatest loss. Please accept my belated comments and being absent from your beloved husband and father’s services due to unexpectedly testing positive for COVID-19 on 18 March 2022. He will be missed by all of us and I will specially miss him as my best high school math teacher, as the first OIA founding committee chairman, and also as a true friend. May he rest in peace and may God illuminate his sole.
