Our beloved Dr. Tharwat Bassily, the founder of Coptic TV, had departed today in Chicago, United State. Dr. Tharwat Bassily served Our Heavenly Father, Our cherished church, and Our beloved country. He served them for all his seventy-seven years on earth with love, wisdom, and peace. He was known as a man of peace, so he went to be with the King of Peace. He now is in the paradise of joy in the bosom of our Holy Fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. 
"Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him." (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14)
