Today I saw one of my favorite people in the world for the last time.
What if we treated one other, each day, each person, as if it was the last time we would meet? What would we say? How would we treat each other?
Do it now.

    Dr. Safi, these are such beautiful words. I imagine a world where we all do just that, live each day as if it is our last and the last one for those we come in contact with. Perhaps that is just the pipe dream on one who loves God or perhaps it is a reality that we can attain. Either way, we grieve with you at your loss, the worlds loss because we all have a grandma Donna.

    Omid Your words are such a beautiful tribute to “Our” Donna!
    She has been my best friend for over 25 years and I will miss her dearly.
    We will all miss her dearly, but I take comfort in knowing we WILL be together again.

    May God make the future easy for her and for those believers in Him that she leaves behind.
