"My deepest sympathies with your dearest family and parents. Never did meet you. A dear friend at Chruch that knows your family told me about the brave person that your family knows you are. May your memory be eternal."

"In memory of a cousin I never met but grew to know through his art. All whose roots reside in Marjayoun will never be able to repay the debt of bringing us along on his journey home. Prayers are owed for eternity for Anthony and his children. May God bless all he touched and those who will be touched by his words in perpetuity."

"To the Wonderful Shadid Family:
The World has lost a great human being and the great Anthony Shadid is irreplaceable. There will never be another Anthony Shadid! I admired Anthony's work in journalism and his integrity was of the highest repute. I read his book "House of Stone" and Anthony took me on an escapade to the Middle East, a place I knew nothing about! There he taught me how to appreciate my family roots. And I also met all his friends, family members, neigbors, business people, and every conceivable person who worked on reconstructing the House of Stone. I cried for you Anthony even though we have never met. My heart goes out to the Shadid family and we all know that TONY is in a safe place. Walk Good dear Tony may the stars and the sun shine sweetly on your handsome face."
