    Sam Mitry was a humble, deeply religious, extremely courageous man who was a testament to what leading a good life really meant. Sam wore his religion well, living it while never displaying it ostentatiously or imposing it in any way. Sam lived a good life quietly without display of any sort, leaving the goodness of his acts to be its reward. While terribly afflicted, Sam showed tremendous strength by never to me complaining or questioning his God or faith, or letting it color his attitude about circumstances or interactions with others in my sight. It was an all-too-brief honor and privilege to have known him, and a regret of his passing the dimming of the light over time.

      Please give me more information about yourself, and your writing, your Orthodox Christian affiliations, and your goals in regard to serving the Orthodox Christian disability community. I will consider them, and if I am at peace with them, I will definitely consider your offer, Sam.
