My dearest children,
This morning at 2 am Damascus time, my mom, your grandmother, passed away. You had known her as one of the most giving and positive people you encountered in your life and she was. She was an amazing elementary school teacher who was on a mission to make a difference in those young kids’ life. She relocated often as your grandfather, the judge, was posted in various cities in the mosaic of culture, ethnicities and religions called Syria. Her strong religious beliefs did not prevent her from keeping an open mind and an open heart to deep friendship with all. Her life purpose was clear to her and all around her. It was the wellbeing of her family. She will do whatever it takes to ensure that.
