    1. From Mila

  14. My mother, she is the one I sympathize with first, so I can’t forget her pity, and she wipes every day your picture hanging on the wall in front of her bed and tears fill her tired eyes.
    Muhammad was my brother and my childhood friend, and I can never forget those days I lived with him, with their sweetness and bitterness.
    Since when I was my sanctuary in my loneliness, I complain to you about life and the weight of days, despite the distances
    Your thoughts, words and smiles will stay with me for the rest of my life
    I am proud of you because you were able to win a decent wife and give birth to the best children and the best of them to raise
    May your soul rest in peace, for you were a faithful brother and a righteous, good, and generous son

  15. I remember I was only six years when realized that I have an uncle who lives overseas, still can remember his black and white photo and my Grandma telling us all about him also remember when he came to see her and how they said good bye to each other before she passed away few months later as if she knew it is the last farewell.
    It was also the first and last chance that I have seen him in person. Although I was little but still can tell how loving, caring, humourus and kind uncle he was. After that I only had the chance to speak to him by phone. He encouraged us to study hard and to be good and listen to our parents he also helped us during the hard times so that we were able to finish our education and we did made him and our parents proud of us.
    I am so glad that I have actually thanked him for his kindness and for being my favourit uncle, am also gratefull that I had the chance to speak to him once more soon before he left us.
    Ammo I miss you…
    You will stay in our hearts forever
    God bless your Family

  16. A great man has passed away we will miss him dearly he was close to me and I wish him well
