My dearest Shaha,
Words cannot begin to explain the sadness I have in my heart. You have touched the lives of many and brought light to everyone who had the pleasure in being in your company. You married an extraordinary man, Sami Marji who has been your life partner for over 65 years. You raised exceptionally wonderful kind children whom I have the pleasure of having and calling as my family. My mother(sawsan) all of my aunts, (abeer)(Salwa)(hanan)(Fadia) and uncles (Murad) (basil) (fadi). Not to mention all of your grandchildren whom are great in numbers, and great-grandchildren.
You and I had a bond that no other can come remotely close too. You looked at me and smiled and I looked at you and smiled back. We were our own version of each other. Every moment spent were the best moments I had with you. You gave me hell to put your seatbelt on, you made me laugh at your silliness when told to do so that it has to go on social media. You came to visit Florida and always made sure I was there so we could hang out, go shopping, visit with friends, go get mani-pedi's together, go eat and just drive around. We both had numerous amounts of laughs, equal amounts of cries, hugging and kissing, bathing you and combing your hair, telling you, you're the most beautiful cute lady ever. Down to your small hands and even smaller feet. Caressing your hands/feet when they hurt giving you a massage to help ease your pain. Covering you when you were cold and then taking it off when you got hot. Sleeping with you and waking up every 45 minutes to take you to the restroom was a challenge always accepted. I always took the salt away from you when you ate, and still managed to find it! Salt everything, there's no taste as you say. I would never trade it for the world. You have taken my heart with you Shaha, and it will never be the same. You are my most favorite person in the history of ever. The last time we spoke you told me you loved me unconditionally, and that of course you missed me. Well, miss Shaha, I will miss you unconditionally and love you beyond words can ever explain. You left me and everyone around that loved you to early. You are in a better place and I hope you rule heaven like you ruled us all down here. You are the glue that kept us all together. I shall promise you WE ALL shall continue to love each other and respect one another forever AND of course don't you worry miss lady, we have Sami covered. We all will continue to visit you and always come talk, hang, and eat with you(food is always involved). I'll never be able to say goodbye, as all my tears roll down my face those words are never coming out. I love you Shaha Marji and I would give you my heart, kidneys, lungs and anything you needed for one more day with you. I will make you proud of me, I promise you. I'll see you later and soon God willing. Again, I love you Shaha I love you so much. Rest easy now my beautiful lady.
Love you infinity x infinity
Your Julie-Mahbolliee
