A message posted by Fr. Titus Fulcher on his blog, Byzantine Ramblings, reads as follows:


Dear beloved readers of this humble blog:

With deep sorrow I must inform you that my wife, Presbytera Karen, fell asleep in the Lord this morning at about five a.m.. As some of you know, Presbytera had been suffering from a brain tumor (GBM IV), which evolved into several, with one inoperable. After surgery on 1 June and a longer than expected stay at the hospital due to complications, she spent a short time in a rehab hospital, and came home on the Feast of the Nativity of St John the Forerunner for hospice care.

The family and I kept vigil last night with prayers, holy anointing, and reading of the Psalms until her passing. In all, we sought to honor her final hours by expressing our trust in the promises of our Lord and in providing care worthy of the dignity of her personhood. Life is truly a precious gift from God from conception to natural death.

I wish to extend my thanks to each and all of you for your God pleasing prayers for Matushka and our family. We have been deeply touched by the love expressed in those prayers and have treasured them each and all. I humbly ask your continued prayers for our family as we face the difficult days ahead.

Your servant in Christ,

Fr Titus Fulcher
AKA The Byzantine Rambler

We has been praying for her and the good father at St. George.

May her memory be eternal!
Lord of the Powers be with us, for in times of distress we have no other help but You.
Lord of the Powers, have mercy on Fr. Titus, the family, and his parish community.
