Vichnaja pamjat, vladyka Nikolai

Tomorrow is the parastas/ great panachida for (American Carpatho Russian Orthodox Diocese) ACROD Metropolitan Nicholas. I dearly wish I could be there in Perth Amboy. Not only because I had a tiny slice of time to speak one on one with this great man, but also because of his connection to my grandfather, Prof. John Petach, and by association, to the same church, the Byzantine Catholic Metropolia of Pittsburgh.
