Due to two official days of mourning, the final section of this story will not be posted until Wednesday.

For those interested in Orthodox practices at such times of mourning, you might like to read the following:

1. General background.
2. The funeral service.
3. An article by Metropolitan Anthony: 'On Death'
4. Should anyone wish to provide any assistance to the many families involved in this tragedy, I suggest having a look at this entry on Father Seraphim's journal.
