Brother Rene Adriano, a member of Torrance University No 394; died from a car accident this morning August 04, 2009.
Our Brother Rene Adriano has reached the end of his earthly toils.
The brittle thread which bound him to earth has been severed and the liberated spirit has winged its flight to the unknown world. The silvercord is loosed; the golden bowl is broken; the pitcher is broken at the fountain; and the wheel is broken at the cistern. The dust has returned to the earth as it was, and the spirit has returned to God who gave it.
Soft and safe to thee, my Brother, be thy resting place! Bright and glorious be thy rising from it! Fragrant be the acacia sprig that there shall flourish! May the earliest buds of spring unfold their beauties o'er thy resting place, and there may the sweetness of the summer's last rose linger longest!
Though the winds of Autumn may destroy the loveliness of their existence, yet the destruction is not final, and in the springtime, they shall surely bloom again. So, in the bright morning of the resurrection, thy spirit shall spring into newness of life and expand in immortal beauty, in realms beyond the skies.
Until then, dear Brother, until then, farewell!
