That was indeed kind of him.

Well the funeral took place today, with Fr Oleg Gritsenko serving.

I exchanged emails with him starting in 2012. He was ill at that time as well.

Here is a picture from Bishop Stefan's website [ which is still visible on the internet ] of himself while still a Rocor Priest with the sarcophagus he carved to house the relics of St John Maximovitch.
From the photo, the wood looks as though it has not been stained its characteristic color. That operation must have taken place soon after the picture was taken, since the reliquary had to be sent to San Francisco in time for the glorification of St John only 2 months later.

May his memory be eternal!
Troparion of St. Philaret of New York
Let us the faithful now come together to praise our father, protector and teacher the pillar of the Orthodox faith and firm defender of piety even the wondrous hierarch Philaret and let us glorify our Saviour Who has granted us his incorrupt relics as a manifest sign of his sanctity.
