It is always a warm memory of Jan and Rushdy and their boys filling a whole pew on Sundays at Calvary Episcopal Church. Sam and Rahgy were the closest in age to my daughter. Later Sam worked at Boone County Bank and it was a joy to see him interact with customers. The boys were so polite it took Sam a while to get comfortable calling me by my first name, and dropping the Mrs. My deepest condolences to all the Abadir family.
