Dear Rula and Family:
It is with much sadness that I heard about your Aunt Laya passing away.
Knowing that your aunt Laya was a great part of your life and how much she meant to you it must be a great sorrow. I saw her picture and she looks like she was a great person and she must have been a great mentor to you and other members of your family.
Hope that the emptiness that she will leave will be filled with all beautiful memories shared with her.
I am sure, your aunt Laya was a very important person in the family and had a great role and I can see that she has pass over to you, her charisma.
Jacques and I are whishing you and your family all our sympathies and you are in our prayers.
I am thinking of you everyday.
Love you.

To my dearest Laya,
I cannot believe you are gone. There is a feeling of emptiness now. You are a tremendous role model. Some did not know your worth - I'm glad I knew. I will always cherish the moments we shared. I will miss your laugh most of all. Walid and I will miss you very much. Our lives will not be the same without you. We pray you are with God watching over us.

To the Abboud Family,
I was very saddened to hear of her passing, I worked with her nephew for many years and she would always come in for a visit and a laugh or two. She had a wonderful heart and always thought of others before herself. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers as will Laya.
