      I got to know him while he was here - we had a couple of good conversations I still treasure. I still think about him - and miss him.

        Dee Dee's original post:
        Dear Community: Some Sad News



        Jonathan Stephen DiLeo (known to us as JSDileo) passed away on Thursday, December 4, 2008 from complications related to the treatment of a brain tumor. He was only 17 years old.



        Here is his memorial page at the funeral home.

        The forum will closed on the day of his funeral, December 10, 2008. TheologyWeb has purchased a large floral arrangement to be sent to the funeral home on the 9th for his wake. The sentiments on the card are expressed as on behalf of the entire community.

        If any individual members wish to send some modest arrangements on their own behalf, I am sure it would be of some consolation to the family. I wanted to let you know that a large stand spray has already been purchased so that the members would know that there will be a very visible expression of the community's condolences, so that if you were to send a modest floral arrangement that would be completely appropriate.

        I encourage everyone to sign the guestbook at the Funeral Home page. If anyone lives in that area and can attend the funeral or wake, please let me know. If at all possible, I believe that someone representing the community needs to be there.

        If you know of anyone who was his friend that may not see this thread, please do what you can to pass on the news.

            What sad news to hear.

            Thanks for telling us Dizzle and I guess now he is finally with Him.

                      Lord Jesus Christ, give him rest, peace, the company of your saints, and the light of your presence.

                      The River of Fire The Way Into the Kingdom of Heaven Distinguishing Truth & Error Apologetics for Orthodoxy Ochlophobic Musings


                      “The mystery of the incarnation of the Lord is the key to all the arcane symbolism and typology in the Scriptures, and in addition gives us knowledge of created things, both visible and intelligible. He who apprehends the mystery of the cross and the burial apprehends the inward [principles] of created things, while he who is initiated into the inexpressible power of the resurrection apprehends the purpose for which God first established everything.” -St. Maximus the Confessor


                      "I would join countless numbers of evangelical Protestants and say I have come to know Christ with fulfilling and life-changing effects and daily witness His grace and leadership in my life. But just because God in His grace and mercy has met us where we are and adapted Himself to our unique cultural and religious circumstances in no way means He has abandoned His original plan. God does not contradict Himself. Truth is intolerant, and truth is found in the Church’s living and Holy Tradition. It is my growing conviction that only a strong living Tradition can protect us from the corrosive and destructive forces of modern life, the insidious and deceptive effects of modern pluralism, and the disheartening and confusing proliferation of religious opinions...What are we to do with this "cloud of witnesses," this Holy Tradition through which they live and speak with such clarity and certitude? Well, for me there seems to be only one logical response. I must turn to the Church and its sacred Tradition; I must listen humbly and be instructed. I cannot let God’s marvelous blessings of the past blind me to what I have missed or deter me from that to which He would lead me still. I must return home to Orthodoxy." Rev. Dorraine S. Snogren, The Road That Leads Home

                        I didn't know Jonathan incredibly well but I remember we had some PM conversations a while back. Didn't he have a different user name at some point? I do remember being very amazed at his apologetics ability at such a young age. When I was 17, God was the last thing from my mind.

                              I don't think so. I do know that he liked Avatar: The Last Air Bender though (judging from his avatars).
