Always on my mind; forever in my heart.

It is with great sorrow and sadness that I tell you of my husband's passing.

You have joined me in prayers of fortitude throughout his illness...deep thanks my friends!

My brave warrior, my friend and beloved husband lost his 10 month long battle against cancer on Saturday 29 June 2013. He was only 49 years old. He fought valiantly and I am so proud of him!
 
God gave us almost 13 wonderful years together!!!

He was a sensitive soul, a gentle giant, a loving husband, father, big Daddy to our granddaughter Ghanaan, and friend to many!

There is so much I want to say, but our tender last moments will be my poignant memories to cherish for always. Some things are just too sacred to share!
 


This is one of the many ways I will remember you by...always with an arm outstretched to greet or help your fellow man!



 
 
Raafiq, I will always remember your smile, your touch, your love, your adoration!
Till we meet again my darling...rest in peace!
We miss you so much every day!
 
"Verily, we are Almighty God's and verily to Him shall we return."(Qur'an 2:156)
