Emilie~ there are no words to say on how you impacted my life. You were like a mother to me and you and Elias were so good to me. I'm so blessed to have had you apart of my life for so many years. I was 18 years old when I met your son. Thank you for all the years that you took care of my son and all of the nights laughing and talking at the kitchen table. RIP beautiful Emile! My condolences to the entire Assouad family! Elias~ you are truly a exceptional man, you loved your wife like I have never seen a man love a woman. You were the light in her eyes and together showed what marriage should truly be. I know your heart is breaking right now. May God give you the peace that you need at this time.
