Our sympathies to Israel's Consul General

When Yoram Elron was  first posted  to Montreal as Israel's Consul General I made a point of arranging a meeting to interview him for the Jewish Tribune Newspaper.  I was immediately captivated by his wonderful personality and warmth. But there was some sadness as he told me about his eldest son, Roee Gal Elron, and his battle with cancer. One of the first things the Consul General and his wife Vered did when they arrived here was to make sure there son was well taken care of at the Montreal Children's Hospital.

From time to time I called the Consul General to see how his son was doing. Sadly, last weekend, Roee Gal lost his battle with the insidious disease. He was only 17. Besides his parents, he leaves his siblings Dori and Inbar.  The family has flown to Israel for the burial. My deepest sympathies are extended.
