Funeral Expense Fund – On April 16, the Keshishian family was welcomed to Bathurst as refugees from Syria. It was the dream of the father, Haroutyoun, to bring his family to safety in Canada and he achieved that dream. However, tragedy struck on May 16 when Haroutyoun Keshishian suffered a heart attack and passed away in Saint John. The family is devastated and is faced with the unexpected expense of a funeral. The family are devout Armenian Christians and Mr. Keshishian will be buried according to Armenian Christian tradition. The funeral will be in an Armenian Church but, in their tradition, a second service is held 40 days after the burial. This second one will be at St. Luke’s. The family is without an income, so a fund has been established to help with funeral expenses. Donations will be gratefully received and can be made to St. Luke’s Presbyterian Church, re Keshishian memorial.” Mail to St. Luke’s, 395 Murray Avenue, Bathurst, NB, E2A 1T4
