It is with a heavy heart that I make this posting.
It has been reported that our Brother Andrew Ullrich passed away today.
Information is forthcoming. Please respect Andrew, his family, and friends by being patient in waiting for details.
I would like to include this passage from Lambda Chi Alpha Open Rituals, as I know how much the Fraternity meant to Andrew.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Andrew’s family and friends.
A time of grief is a time of Love, a time of Faith, and a time of Hope. Our faith in God supports us as we suffer the loss of a loved one. Our hope is strengthened by trust in God who assures us that He can and does sustain us. Love for each other reaches a new high as we come together to mourn, to bring someone we love to final rest, and to thank God for sharing His life with us through Brother Andrew Ullrich.
We are surrounded by signs which can offer to all of us the consolation which God provides at this time. The delicate, silvery crescent, rising in the sky, symbolizes for us birth; the birth of a soul. And as the crescent grows into the full moon reflecting the light of the sun, so does it represent the growth of a spiritual realization within us reflecting the glory of God.
May Peace be with you all.
