Dearly Departed

‘Do not weep; for she is not dead but sleeping.’ –Lk 8:52. In Armenian Church tradition, we “quote” Jesus in calling our dead nnjestseal/those asleep; and are reminded that sleep is something we get up from! These photos are of the St. Hagop extended family of faith, who are asleep to us, but alive in Christ.
