On Thursday, Feb 10, 2004, our wonderful artist and Armenian benefactor, Vartkes Kaprielian of Medway St. Providence, Rhode Island, passed away unexpectedly. He was very knowledgeable in the ancient Armenian Holy Illuminated Manuscripts, a singer in the St Vartanantz Church Choir, father of 5 children, and a generous and noble man. He always supported the Armenian cause, and only wanted to have the Turkish nation recognize the Armenian Massacres. For like myself, he believed that only my asking for forgivenessness, can one be forgiven. But humans
can be so shallow and deceptive, and will perpetuate and deny wrongdoing. We will never forget Varkes Kaprielian and his wonderful artwork, nor his collection of Armenian Art from all over the world. He and his wife Elizabeth Dolbashian-Kaprielian always welcomed Armenians from everywhere to their home, and gave of themselves most generously. May his good works spark the Armenian cause and live on in our purpose to keep the Spirit of Armenia alive!
