    Dear Karen,We are all so very saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Ekeze. We think of your beautiful family so often--you have been in our thoughts and prayers and we send much love your way.
    Caspar still talks with awe about the day that Dr. Ekeze visited your classroom when Caspar was in kindergarten--he made quite an impression. Even though I only had the honor of  meeting him just once briefly, his positive energy was readily apparent. And I could clearly see his and your wonderful, generous natures reflected in your beautiful children.
    You have touched our lives, Please know that we think of you always, and our hearts go out to you and your family. Much love,Sara Di Donato, Chris Carson and Caspar

    I am truly sorry to hear about Tobi. He was such a great man. I have fond memories of him from when I was growing up in Brockport. I still remember your wedding and when both of your children were born like it was yesterday. Karen, Julian and Isabella, you are all in my prayers during this difficult time. Although we miss him in the earthly realm, the peace, rest and relaxation he now has is much deserved. We will all see him again one day.

    Anybody who knows Tobi will agree that he is a very loving, caring, approachable, and what can I do to make somebody happy individual. He lights up a room when he arrives in any gathering. His smile is exceptionally welcoming. Tobi was my first Nigerian soccer team captain. He will do whatever it takes to insure that we were a winning team. Everything Tobi touches turns to Gold.
    My dear friend, you will be greatly missed.

    Karen, Isabella, and Julian,
    Tobi touched our community with his energy and wisdom.  He was the type of person that you can recall the very first time you met him.  He made an impact, a positive one, on all of us.  He will be truly missed but never forgotten.  His hard work and dedication will continue to inspire us all to do better and to be better as individuals.  We will continue to pray for you in this difficult time that the Lord will console your heavy hearts.
    Feel confident knowing that Tobi's spirit lives on through the grace of God.  He is now watching over you from heaven above.
    Peace and Love,

    Tim, Bridget, Adam and Maryellen Crist

    Karen, Julian, and Isabella----There is a new star shining brightly in the heavens tonight.  Tobi is already greatly missed, but  I know that he is looking down on us and sending us huge, warm hugs. He will always have a special place in our hearts and will forever be in our memories.

    Karen, Julian and Isabella.

    I am so sorry to hear that Tobias has passed away.  Brain cancer is such a difficult disease; we have lost two to that disease this year.  Just know that many people had the highest respect for your husband, your dad.  I am so glad that he found his highest calling in that of a high school principal and that he had a positive effect on many lives.  You will be missed, Tobias, but people will not forget.

    Best Regards,

    JoAnne Kerschner
