Rebecca Coné In eternal memory of Giuseppe Coné  Giuseppe Coné  Giuseppe Coné  Giuseppe Coné  Giuseppe Coné

Giuseppe Coné: Holocaust Survivor

There are special moments when one person reaches out for another and

makes the difference that no one else can make.

We just want to say thank you for being there in prayers and in thoughts,

and when we needed you most to ease our sorrow, ’cause one’s never really

ready when it comes to the time to part.

It comforts us to know that our most beloved Papa and Nono is safe in G-d’s

care now. We will always remember his history made of big and small moments,

rich in laughter, love and venture of faith, not to mention his humble simplicity.

He will live forever in our hearts and we will keep a legacy of memories, although

we will miss and mourn that he is gone.

Rebecca and Alan , SaraMatteo and Esther, grandchildren and great-granddaughter

Subject: FW: Sincere Condolences

Due to Hurricane Wilma we were without electricity for 3 days and without

telephone and internet for 6 days.

I’ve just found out through Nisso that your father passed away. We are sharing

with you, your grief  and your pain.

Your father was an extraordinary person, always fun and gentle and even…

acrobatic. We will always remember him.

We are never prepared for those difficult moments but we all know that they

will happen, one day.

My brother and I are still lucky to have parents but unfortunately they are most

of the time in bed, not able to walk more than a few yards.

My mom has advanced Alzheimer and she can barely talk. My dad is still alert but

extremely weak. They are both 87 years old which is about the same age than your

father was I believe.

I would like you to know that I often think about you even though we are far away

from each other.

Please transmit to Rebecca and Sarah our sincere condolences.

 Your best friend,

 Isaac Menasce


Cher Matteo,

C’est avec beaucoup de peine que j’ai appris la perte de ton papa qui me touché ainsi que toute la famille.

Ma sœur Linda nous a fait part de la triste nouvelle qui m’a touché profondément. Susan et moi tenons à te dire combine nous pensons à toi, tes sœurs, ta femme et tes enfants.

Ton papa sera toujours pour moi le père au sourire et à la gentillesse incomparable. Il me rappellera toujours ces joyeuses journées à Muizenberg. Sa mémoire sera toujours avec ma famille.

Colin n’a pas oublié sa rencontre avec ton père il y a cinq ans. Ce qu’il l’a poussé à visiter Auschwitz

lors de son voyage européen cet été dernier.

Avec moi, car depuis le jour où Isaac m’a fait visiter la vielle synagogue au Cap, je fais connaitre l’histoire de ton père, de madame Habib et des survivants de Rhodes à mes élèves et mes amis.

Avec ma profonde sympathie et celle de Susan et Colin.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful remembrance of your late father….you must be so proud of him. I never met him, regrettably, but he was clearly a very unique and special person. Our very best wishes to you and the family.
