An amazing sister, that is who Afifi was to me. She taught me, by example, to be kind, supportive and to stay positive. Her sense of humor cannot be topped. An authentic person who made a positive impact on all the lives she touched. Her memory will always be with me. I am privileged and blessed to have been a part of her life.

To the Haddad family,

Please accept my deepest sympathies on the passing of Afifa.

Afifa was my Arabic professor for two years. Through her class, I not only learned a new language, but also gained friendships and shared traditions. Afifa was always joyful and encouraging to her students and her sense of humour was incomparable. I'll always remember when she took us to Shawarma Palace as a class and made us order our food in Arabic. She was a wonderful support to me as I continued my studies and she served as a grad school reference for me, for which I was most grateful. I still tell people about her relaxed, fun and effective teaching methods. Her classes were filled with love - for language, diversity, culture, people - and I hope to always think of her example in my actions.

Afifa often spoke of her family in class and it was obvious how much family meant to her. Sending you all much love at this time.
