Our deepest condolences to the family. We only have fond memories of lovely conversations with Mr Nazareth. His interest in us and our children was always genuine and so very much appreciated. We will miss those moments, and remember them fondly. Sending all of our love and strength to the whole family.
Very sorry to know about Joseff. His wife Leela and me worked togather for 25 years and known Josseff and Leela for almost 40 years.He was a wonderful , hillarious and cheerful person i know him.Me and my husband will miss his smiling face
Hi my dear Joe, I miss you. Every time I call your home you answer the call. I call to hear your voice and to listen to Leelamma’s stories about your life. Leelamma is my first cousin sister, enjoyed a lot of childhood plays, especially jumping in the water pools in her backyard stream.
Eventually, after years of training and adventures, I ended up in NY and she in TOR. She married Joe, I brought my family over, and we enjoyed family get together several times both in Toronto and in New York with our children.
So now it’s almost a lifetime of memories to reflect the love and fondness me and Joe had over these years.
I love you Joe, I will join you in heaven pretty soon.
Our deepest condolences to the family .
To the most darling of Uncles. For me, there are almost no words for this. After all, how do you say “Goodbye” to someone – when you haven’t actually come to terms with the fact that they are gone? What a wonderful Uncle you were……a loving brother to your “sister”……….the world’s best father to my cousins and in my daughter’s words “the bestest, most wonderfulest, most magnificent Grandpa ever!”
We are all blessed for having known you. For having loved you and been loved by you. Rest in Peace, Dear Uncle, love you always
Condolences to the family. Go in peace, Joseph! You have been a faithful and loving servant. May the angels carry you into Paradise and lead to the new and eternal Jerusalem.
My deepest condolences to Dear Ms. Nazareth and her lovely family. I never ever can forget that beautiful face and always having a beautiful smile. I am so lucky to know this wonderful family. Rest in Peace. Tammy. 🥀🥀🥀🥀🥀
