We were saddened to hear of Aida's departure. May God rest her soul. Her angelic nature and beautiful bright smile will be greatly missed. The last time I saw Aida was about 20 years ago when we received a call from Adly and Aida from JFK airport. Their flight was cancelled and rescheduled for the next day. What a wonderful surprise that was as we spent time together at our house on Long Island, NY.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Adly, Sami, Abouna Tadros and families. May God fill your hearts with His peace.
All my siblings send you their condolences.
Love, Laila Azmy Elmasry
