    I am so sorry that Leila has left our world . I met Leila some 22 years ago and she was more than kind – she welcomed me into the broader family. She treated me, as she did everyone else, with respect and generosity of love. I will miss her. I take comfort from knowing that her pain is no longer slowing her down. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    I will always remember Layla and Qais for their support of St. Anne School, our staff and myself while the school was in it’s infancy in Fort McMurray. They shared their wonderful children with us and Layla was an active supporter of our PTA. May you rest in the peace of God for all eternity!
