His Eminence, Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of the Syriac Orthodox Church for Eastern United States, would like to thank Their Eminences, the Archbishops, members of the Clergy and parishioners and friends, who offered their condolences for the passing away of Sub-Deacon Elias Sarkar, through phone calls, e-mails and messages. His thanks go also to the hundreds of people who joined in paying their respects and condolences in person, and attended the funeral services.
