Tributes from Family

    Rami ,
    (I do miss you ).

    I am writing this, because I cannot be at your anniversary , of you being away, for one year.
    People say, that we should not mourn good men. Good men who walked this earth one day, but we should be proud that such good men lived among us for just a day.
    Men are born tough and strong. To take care and protect their families, so when we drop a tear from our eyes, it is not because we are weak, it is never been a sign of weakness. When we cannot express ourselves and our mind is taken over by our emotions, tears will be the messengers of unspeakable love and tenderness.
    With unspoken words, and for no reason, we accept the pain, especially, when a certain light is gone out of our life, like your light was gone out of ours.
    The year is your 34’th , and I thank GOD, for what you had given us.
    You gave us hope,
    You gave us inspiration,
    You have been always there to make sure, everyone is ok and doing fine, you helped every one….you’ve helped me ,… to be the kind of person, I am today.
    If I could reach up and hold a star, every time you have made us proud of you, the entire evening sky will be in the palm of my hand.
    Some say, you are too painful to remember, I do say, that you are too precious to be forgotten, because people like you, when they are forgotten , they will cease to exist, and you do exist in our lives, in our thoughts and in our hearts.
    Gone, but not forgotten. Although, we are apart, you live within us, forever… in our souls.
    Some of them, met you briefly in their lives, and I have learnt, that people might forget what you had said, people might forget what you did, but I know that a lot of people will never forget how you made them feel.
    You were strong,
    You were courageous,
    Your mind, your heart, your soul, these are some of the things I love most about you.
    I want to thank you, for the memories I have of you, the ones I keep, the ones I cherish, and the ones I regret, because that is all you have left me, ….just memories of you, and a picture I hang on my wall.
    But now, there is nothing that I can do,…. you left me one year ago, with no goodbye,
    But today, I will say good bye to you, knowing that this goodbye, is a big hello… in my heart
    Rami…. I will always miss you.
    GOD bless your soul till eternity.

    when we lose someone we love
    and give him away
    what moves through us
    is silence, a quiet sadness
    longing for one day
    we look in memories
    to confront our tomorrow
    it is difficult to see beyond our love and sorrow
    you are my horizon
    which shed a bright new day
    everytime the sun comes up
    and I dream of tomorrow
    I pray that i can see you
    every second of the day.

    GOD bless you.

    Dear Fouad and May
    I am writing this to let you know that Ghida and I were thinking about you and your family today.
    It has been one year since Rami left and found his own resting place.It’s never easy for those left behind,but when you lose someone so senselessly and unexpectedly,we all feel the shock.May it help to know how many people share your sorrow and stand with you in your time of need.
    In every memory Love lives on.

    Dear Rami, I often wonder why you left this earth so soon… It`s so difficult to accept … but eventually we surrender to the will of GOD ALMIGHTY … My thoughts and prayers are continuously with your Dear Parents… May GOD`s Grace strengthen them and May the love of GOD enfold them during their journey … I miss you dearly and your beautiful memory will always be in my heart … “GOD bless your soul and keep you in His tender care and love for all eternity”

    Tarek Jaber said you are with us in spirit ! yes habibi you are always…All your friends were at Karim Nsouli wedding and a tribute was paid to you. As karim promised he wore your White Necktie !!!

    For us it was very emotional, seeing all the boys and not you around… I could hear your laugh, I could see you dance, simply I could see you there ………

    Your girls were your ambassodors !!!!!!!! they joined Karim & Zeina in their celebration , and spent time with Saif, Thaline, Toufic, Fouad, Nouri and ………

    I only wish you were there tooooooo, but Alas , you are watching from up there smiling and saluting every one…

    You are visiting through the dreams we have, and every one says how peaceful & happy you are ….

    May God gives your soul the rest , peace and rahma and give you light all along……….

    Love you Mum

    Habibi, eight months has passed after you are gone. Eight very hard months… Missing you more & more every day. It is hard to think I wont see you any more, it is hard to think I won’t hear your voice especially at the early hours of the day : Mum can we talk?? are you awake ?? For you I was always awake any time you called, wherever you were ….

    What is keeping me strong is your girls , a part of you that we cherish a lot and pray to God we will raise like you wanted to…

    What is keeping me strong is seeing you in my dreams from time to time… always smiling always happy.

    What keeps me strong is the prayers of people far & near for us to be strong & for you to be in peace.

    What is keeping me strong is the love I have from family & friends.

    What is keeping me strong is the stories I hear about peoples’ dreams of you… All are full of love, full of happiness , full of laughter… Some see you in green Koftans, others see you in Mecca… Some see you at home, others in the office, so many dreams that people share with me….

    What can I say, it is only messages to let us know that you are happy wherever you are, you are looking at us from your far away place, trying to tell us not to worry about you and that your eye is on us…..and I thank you from all my heart for that..

    Keep coming in our dreams, in your friend’s dreams in other people’s dreams, for like this we know you send us your love….

    I really miss u with all my heart please remember me as I allways will remember u.

    Rami’s daughter may - Family

    And now the end is near
    And so I face the final curtain
    My friend I’ll say it clear
    I’ll state my case of which I’m certain

    I’ve lived a life that’s full
    I traveled each and every highway
    And more, much more than this
    I did it my way

    Regrets I’ve had a few
    But then again too few to mention
    I did what I had to do
    And saw it through without exemption

    I planned each charted course
    Each careful step along the byway
    And more, much more than this
    I did it my way

    Yes there were times I’m sure you knew
    When I bit off more than I could chew
    But through it all when there was doubt
    I ate it up and spit it out, I faced it all
    And I stood tall and did it my way

    I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
    I’ve had my fill, my share of losing
    And now as tears subside
    I find it all so amusing

    To think I did all that
    And may I say not in a shy way
    Oh no, oh no, not me
    I did it my way

    For what is a man what has he got
    If not himself then he has not
    To say the things he truly feels
    And not the words of one who kneels
    The record shows I took the blows
    And did it my way

    Yes it was your way.

    I miss you and i love you so much . I still can’t believe your gone.

    forever your “lil sis” Camo

    Mum ! your birthday was a few days ago , almost a week has passed.. we celebrated your life it in the best way we can by honouring your memory and announcing the Chair of Governance in your name at AUB and a yearly scholarship & Award at IC….
    You were with us through every minute, you were there in the eyes of your kids who were so proud to have a father like you…From far away you gave us pride and comfort.. From far away you smiled and greeted us…

    For years you have not allowed us to blow any candles on your birthday, saying mum, we should not celebrate BD, this is only for kids, for us every day is birthday! Same like when you grew up and stopped bringing me breakfast in bed on mothers day, you told me, why we have one day a year to celebrate mothers day, I celebrate it every day ! I thank God for giving me such a wonderful mum !!!

    Well, I thanked God every day for having you, and now I thank Him for taking care of you ….

    Your kids though wanted to celebrate your birthday their way, they wanted to have a cake and blow the cake, the three of them together pretending you are there blowing the candles too… I could not say no, deep down I knew you would not mind for this to happen….

    Can not say enough how much I miss you, how much we all miss you.

    May God have Mercy on you and on us …
