Dr. Helen Qammar was a gifted leader, an inspirational thinker, and a caring, generous mentor to me. As a former graduate assistant under her supervision and guidance, I will sorely miss her wisdom, beauty, kindness, creativity, and much more. So down to earth and welcoming, she always made me and others feel like genuinely valued colleagues of equal worth. A true role model and friend, Helen was a person of integrity, intelligence, and countless gifts. In sympathy and blessed gratitude, my best wishes go to her family and friends for peace, solace and cherished memories of love and joy now and in the years to come. God bless.
