A true Community Spirit individual has departed with the Holy recently. An intellectual, a President, a Comrade. Vasillis (Bill) Gonis) from the Community of Adelaide. The Late Bill Gonis was a noble man and a sophisticated man who preserved the Community Spirit, loved the Greek Community of Adelaide and promoted Hellenism in the wider Community. I still remember some significant phrases he told me in our last conversation a few days before his passing: “My first significant step to become President was the love I have had for the Community, the second was the love I received from the Community, and the third was my family”! Bill Gonis showed to all of us that the Community Spirit was impartial for our cause. That is why his spirit will shine as an example and motivator to all the members of His Community!
Travel Well our dearest Vassili!
Very Reverend Abbot Nektarios
