His Grace The Right Rev. Basil, Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America, writes:
Memory Eternal! Erick Kinnick, son of Fr. Bernard  and Kh. Karen Kinnick of St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Church of Spokane, WA , reposed in the early morning of Christmas Day at the age of fifty-one. Please join me in praying a rope for the repose of Erick's soul, saying, "O Lord Jesus Christ, grant rest to the soul of Thy departed servant." May he be granted Paradise, and may you be granted long life.
