Here's a photo of my aunt and I in a photobooth in Aventura. I will always remember and cherish the memories with her...
Here is a photo of my aunt and us meeting worldwide known actor, Mark Wahlberg. This was a year before she was diagnosed with cancer. I miss her so much and I want to thank everyone for all the condolences.

My Brother Jim, Like the others, I only have good thoughts of Fadela gentle,strong,kind,enduring,funny,deep,determined. I'm sure she was the primary translator of Zir-la-fok but didn't live a life of diru-bi-swiya. She did bezzzzzzzzzzaf for many.
God bless and keep you Bro.
Contrary to Jim Morrison, "This is NOT the end."
Grace and peace.
When I think of her, I remember all the great stories she shared and how much I wanted to be like her. I still remember tasting the vegetables thinking they were just steamed and lightly seasoned. And they were- with Chili! Always a surprise!
Words can not express my feelings at this moment. She was a wonderful humanbeing, teacher and friend. There are so many Fadela stories I tell when the topic gets to Morrocco and all of them still make me smile inside at what I tell and would never tell anyone who was not there. The world lost a great soul. If more people had her spirit, the world would be a better place.
Jim and the Senhaji Family,
Please accept our sympathies. We feel honored to have known Fadela. We think back often of our time in Morocco and that time was always entwined with the things we learned from Fadela. She was a beautiful person in many ways. We are all better people for having known and cared for her. She will always be remembered.
Fadela inspired the best from a variety of Arabic language adoptees through her quick smile and joyful laughter. She loved telling and listening to stories along our Peace Corps Morocco journey. Fadela and Jim's love and care for each other grew and inspired all of us. Jennifer and I pray for them and for their families.
A smart, generous, high-spirited, sweet person, an enthusiastic and talented teacher, loved by all who she met. Condolences to all.
A loss to all who knew her. PC Morocco 1980-1982

Bill and Julie Campe and family
Fadela was a shining light in our Peace Corps group in Morocco. Her laughter is something I can still remember today though it's been 30 years since I've seen her. She was the first person to have noticed my latent leadership ability via a dream she had of me leading the way. I offer my deepest condolences to Jim Nuttall and to Fadela's family for their great loss.

“In sorrow, we mourn those lost. In gratitude, we embrace those around us. In sympathy, we reach out to those who grieve. Just know that our arms are wrapped tight around you during this time of loss.”

Jim, please be comforted knowing that the world is a better place because of Fadela. We will all miss her. My sincere condolences.
When people travel as far, care as deeply and work as hard for others as Fadela and Jim have done, the circle of their friends will be wider and deeper than we can measure.
My small part of that circle was in meeting both Fadela and Jim as a Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco. Fadela taught us Arabic, and no student of hers will have forgotten her gentle way, her quick, brilliant smile or her ability to find the humor and share the laugh in the moment.
The loss now felt so deeply by our brother, Jim Nuttall, by our sister, Sophie Senhaji-Todd, and by all of her family is one we share with them. But we remember: While the pain is deep, we feel it only because it is an inseparable part of an infinitely greater joy in knowing Fadela and in having shared time with her. Allahi saadkum, Allahi barak fikum!
