A true warrior.  Heaven has gained an angel and we are honored to say you're our father/husband.  We always called you an Alien, because your strength was out of this world. Always defeating the unimaginable.   The hardest worker we know. 
You put blood, heart, and soul into everything you've done. You will always be remembered for your genuine love. Your pure baby heart will remain beating inside us. 
Today, we will call you our guardian angel, flying with Jesus and protecting us forever, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We are proud of your indestructible hope and faith in God and today you have been rewarded with wings and a shining halo.

Zaid, may your precious soul Rest In Peace. We love you. 
We'll miss you...forever.

With Great Love,

Lina, Daniel, Sally, Liana
