Dear Uncle Nabih, Jackie and Carol:
Aunt Lorraine's funeral was beautiful. What a dear woman and so sweet to all of us. She reminded me of my mother, her first cousin, in many ways. May she rest in peace with our Lord and her heavenly family.

Jim and I, and our children, send our deepest sympathy to Uncle Nabih, Jackie, and Carol as well as Denise and Loretta and their families. We will never forget Aunt Lorraine's smile, how her eyes lit up! Together with our cousins, our childhoods were so intertwined and we always thought that it was enviable that so many cousins lived on the same street. In our several recent visits, Aunt Lorraine had retained her smile and her zest for family, truly enjoying the time together.

May she rest in the peace of Our Lord for all eternity.

Mrs. Samaha always brought a smile to my face - from my earliest memories of her when I was around 5 to her 90th birthday party, just a few years ago. She was silly, funny, embarrassed, wonderful, kind, bossy, picky, and filled with LOVE and smiles for us all.

She adored her family. Expected each of them to be kind and thoughtful people - and they are!

She leaves more than memories and a long life lived - she leaves us a road map, a legacy of HOW to live our lives - and I will carry that with me always.

Much Love to all her family and friends - and especially to Jackie and Carolyn!

Love, Chrisi
