In Memory of Jason Louis Zarri
June13, 1986 to October 31, 2014
May Jason rest in peace!
in Jason passing away Scholardarity has experienced a severe set-back, and I have lost a true friend. When after grieving I can begin to work on Scholardarity again, this work can only proceed in his memory.
Jason did not live to himself and he did not die to himself. When he lived, he lived to the Lord and when he died, he died to the Lord. So when he lived and when he died, he belonged to the Lord. But that is why Christ — the way, the truth, the resurrection, and life — died and lived again, that he might be the Lord both of the dead and of the living. (cf. Romans 14:7-9)
