    Dear Nazir, Fadi, Lamise, Fadia and Sandy,
    I was so very saddened to read of the passing of your wonderful father. I especially remember his gentle smile. I recall, with fondness, the times I was invited to your home when you were students of mine. The food was delicious, the conversations were delightful, and your hospitality always made me feel a part of the family. I am away in Kauai and will not be able to attend the prayers and funeral. Please know I wish I could. I send you my deepest sympathies and big hugs.

    You are all in my thoughts and in my prayers.
