    We are saddened to hear of the passing of Ephrem. We will miss seeing him in our neighbourhood. We have been inspired by him, seeing him working on his lawn even in recent years. He always welcomed us with a cheerful greeting when we stopped to chat or with a friendly wave as we met on the road. To Sophia, Ephrem Jr., Michelle and your families, may you have peace and comfort as you grieve his passing.
