It is with great sadness that I write of the death of our dear friend and professor, Dr. Raphael Waters.
He died at St. Mary's hospital in Lewiston NY at 4:00 this morning (Thursday, August 26, 2010).
It is an incalculable loss.
He was 86 years old.
Last Friday, when a number of us (his students) visited his house, he seemed to sense his time was near. He said, "If the Lord takes me soon, be assured that I will be praying for you."
A day or two before, he had been taken to the hospital and placed in intensive care. He had been battling cancer and various other ailments for a number of years.
Please pray for the repose of the soul of our own dear Dr. Waters.
