|Let the memory of Ephraim be with us forever|
"This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Ephraim Schultz who was born in New York on July 19, 1983 and passed away on May 12, 2005 at the age of 21. We will remember him forever. Ephraim would have been 22 years old on July 19th of 2005. He was very much loved by myself his Mother , Mary Jo Alessio, his father William R.Schultz, his brother Josiah I. Schultz and his sister Elisabeth Kitchen.As well as Nana Jo Alessio and "Other" Grandma Carol Kelly Schultz and loads of friends, cousins, and Aunts and Uncles, and people at Antique World in Clarence, NY.Ephraim had many dreams one of which was to go to another country to help the poor and suffering in orphanages. He loved to work hard and enjoyed landscaping, and especially working with his Uncle at Antique World.The Pumpkin Festival was one of his favorite tasks. Ephraim's presentation was very quiet but no one could forget the mysteries his eyes held and the depth of his kindness nor his tender heart. He enjoyed collecting Military items as well as the fact that he was an avid chess player. As they say "still waters run deep" and Ephraim was always filled with surprises. He enjoyed many different artists and was known to listen to his favorite love songs. Albeit as a 21 yr old he didn't always want people to know just how sensitive and sentimental he was and will always be.As a child of 5 years old he said "Mommy will you pray that God will send me one good friend?". Now my beautiful Ephraim is in the arms of a friend that "will never leave him nor forsake him". If Josiah has my energy and curiosity about life it can be said that Ephraim had my heart, tenderness and compassion for those less fortunate. He is treasured in my heart and will be missed for I have not only lost my son , but my friend and soulmate.
Ephraim in Hebrew means "God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction".
Our Jesus was waiting to take you home........." a friend who will never leave you nor forsake you"."
"My Beloved Ephraim David! How we all miss and long for you in a way that words can never truly define.
Happy heavenly Birthday my son! 33 years old!"
"Surrounded forever by the Glow of God and the heavenly Angels and a great crowd of witnesses!"
"My dear Ephraim David,
We will always love and miss you so very much! Your life will not be in vain as long as I live. I will say your name every day. You existed, you were and are real. and as your Mother I will be your eyes, your ears and your voice.
I will tell your story. I will make sure people remember you. You died too soon and your death so preventable.
You are surrounded by an army of young men and women who have left this planet too soon. You were cut short from living the life that you were created for. But your voices carry on through all of us parents who were left behind to grieve and weep.
I know that you are with Nana now and you and Nana will make a place for me and Josiah when it is our turn to join you.
I love you!
