    Nadia was a true gift in my life. I admired her passion and zest for life but especially her love for her family! She’s definitely gone too soon and it’s a true shame for all the people that never knew her but more for all of us that did! I’ll always treasure our friendship and the time we shared. I pray for the best for her family and pray for their strength to endure her loss. God will provide! May God bless her daughter Sophia in every way🙏

    Dearest Nadia,
    Words will never express how much I loved and adored you. Your beauty captured my eyes, your intelligence captured my mind, and your love captured my heart. Our paths crossing, without a doubt, was by design. Throughout all the laughter, shared love, and at times tears, I was so proud to have you in my life. You will always be “ my girl”. God willing, I will see you again. Maybe a little taller and have better teeth! LOL! I love you Nadia.

    Nadia, it still doesn’t seem real that you are gone my sweet friend. A true beauty inside and out. I am going to miss hearing your voice, your laugh, all your stories, but most of all… that delicious Lebanese cuisine you were always cooking up! You were truly one of a kind and would do anything for anyone. Thank you for loving my girl like one of your own all these years. She loved you so much! Rest easy friend, until we meet again. My prayers are with all of the family.
