We are sad to loose Abe, Dr. Ibrahim Ghanem, was my boss and a friend of the Maicher Family. We spent magical 8 days with him and his family (including his mother) in Birket el Saba in the Nile Delta. Abe was one of the founders of the Multicultural Association of Fredericton and helped to make the city a welcoming place for Newcomers. We have lost part of our life as well with the passing of Abe. We would like to express our sincere condolences to Sally and the rest of the Ghanem family.

Dear Sally, Sarah, Amyl and the family of Abe (Ibrahim) Ghanem, Ph.D. It was with deap sadness for my wife Stanya and myself to learn about Abe's passing yesterday. Even though we have known about Abe's serious illness for sometime, still this news is untimely and we'll miss his miles distance presence very much. I was privileged to work with this very gifted, brilliant, wise and good hearted man for a number of years. My illness and his promotion has separated us physically, yet he has never left my mind and heart. I'm not, by far, the only one from his colleagues, who agrees with me. May I offer you, Sally my (our) and the entire family offer heart-felt condolences with the wish to share and thus to take at least a small portion of your heavy sorrow from you... With love, Karel and Stanya.
