Dear Qamar, Salam. I check my facebook messages no more than twice a year, but learning of the return of your father as he did to whence he came after such a good life was wonderful. As I learned as the head of a hospice in South Chicago eight years ago, for good people the closer one comes to death the more wonderful is life, until the peak moment comes when one's body finally shuts down for good. This should be a happy moment also for you, in sha'a Allah. Fi aman Allah, Bob Crane.

Condolences to you & your family, Riz. The tribute depicts a wonderful man who, I'm sure, will be missed. May his legacy continue to bless & inspire, not only those who knew him, but all who his life touched. Your dedication through law school inspires me & I know now that your commitment to service & others is a quality your father must have had.
