Not sure what to say?

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,...

Now, the world is a lesser place. Peace be upon him.

I'm heartbroken for the loss to his family, and my thoughts are with them. The world will be all the worse for the loss of his voice.

My heart hurts for you Nada. I just saw you on television. What an incredible legacy he has left but I know that may be little comfort, Our son died this past June. He was 27. We were so close. When you said you would have a hard time doing the things you did together, I can only tell you that the deeper your grief, the deeper your love for he who has passed. Rest in peace Shadid. Leta Goldberg

Dear Rhonda, May god bless you and your family at this time of grief.
