"For me to live is Christ, and to die gain;...having the desire for departure and being with
Christ, for it is very much better."
It is with joy mixed with sorrow that I write of the home call of my Dad, Skariah Varghese
(06 October 1939 - 01 January 2015). He slipped peacefully into his Savior's arms this
morning at 10:05am after a 3 year-long battle with cancer, surrounded by family and some
local saints. He is now at home with the Lord and awaits his shout when "the dead in Christ
will rise first" and "we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them to
meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord."
He attended the Bethesda Bible Chapel Irving, Texas for many years where he served the
Lord faithfully. Babychayan will always be remembered for his display of hospitality to
believers. His enthusiasm, love for God and the scriptures, was truly invigorating. There is
a mixture of sadness and relief. Relief that the suffering is over, and sadness that comes
from the empty space he leaves behind. However, we rejoice in the memories and for the
grace and mercy of our God, who gave him to us for 75 years. We are
so grieved to be separated from him in the flesh, but not grieved like those who have no
hope. We are comforted for him to be with the Lord now, where there is no more pain and
suffering, only joy forevermore! He leaves behind his dear wife, Mary and two children, Roji
and his wife Rani and daughters Sarah & Tabetha, and Ruby and her husband Jose and
children Hannah & Abigail. He is also survived by three sisters and a brother.
Thank you to all who have prayed for us through the years, and who have shared in our
sorrows and ultimate triumph.
