To Faiz: You were a legend in the pharmacy world before I ever met you many years ago. I was in awe when we first spoke on the phone. I have remained amazed at your larger than life, good hearted, yet so very down to earth manner since the first time I met you and your family.
Although I said thank you many times for coming into my life, I would like to say it again as a part of my goodbye to you.
I admired your ability to dedicate yourself to hard work with strong work ethics and all the while continuing to stay strong in your role as patriarch to your family as well as to the community that has so loved you for so many years.
I have always looked up to you and I will continue to look up when I think of you because I know that is where you are now. Safe and free of pain comforted in the arms of God. So go rest peacefully, Faiz; it is your turn to rest. All of your hard work will continue through your wonderful family and the memory of your smile will remain forever in the hearts of all that were so fortunate to have met you. It has been an honor to call you my friend and to be professionally associated with you. Thank you! xo
To the family: You are all truly blessed to have such a man in your lives. My heart and prayers go out to you all for your loss. I have heard Faiz speak so lovingly of all of his family members over the years. That is where the truth lies in a person; being able to openly express love and admiration for your wife, children, grandchildren, siblings and even call generations of nieces and nephews by name. That is how big his heart was. I am certain his driving force was to make a difference for you all ... and I am certain that he did. Forever cherish a love that will not ever leave you and cannot be replaced.
Thank you all for sharing this wonderful man. Celebrate his accomplishments and rejoice his spirit.
