Subject: Virgil has moved on to the next life
To all Virgil's friends,
We (Darius and Simas) with heavy heavy hearts relay the news that as of 12:30 am, Tuesday May 18th 2010, our dad and friend, Virgilijus Kaulius is no longer of this earth. He died of complications related to a heart attack while doing the work he loved in Darcy, BC at the time, and then was air-lifted to Vancouver General Hospital.
We remember he always said he favoured the image of the resurrected Christ rather than the dying Christ. So we should not think of him as dying, but as rising to heaven at this time.
We, his sons will be flying to Vancouver today.
Details regarding his funeral will be forthcoming via email.
If needed, you can contact us at:
Simas (Simon) Kauliusskaulius@gmail.com
Please keep him in your prayers. And keep his sense of humor in your hearts. He used to say, "If Heaven were so great, why are more people not dying to get there?"
(We shall leave Virgil's default signature on this email, as it is very fitting, Virgil is now with God)
Truth can never be at odds with faith,
because God is the source of all truth:
to find truth, is to find God.
