I had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Elkouri as a friend of his son Andrew. Dr. Elkouri was incredibly kind and welcoming whenever I went over to visit, and I am sorry I won't have the opportunity to chat with him again.

My wife Isabel and I send our condolences to the Elkouri family. May Dr. Elkouri rest in the peace of Christ.
