If you would like to see a true Orthodox service, do not miss this one. It is so beautiful, sounds kind of like The Lord of The rings Elvish track. There is no crazy right wing evangelical persons jumping around, loud clapping or singing, any pressure, or any want of money (they have lots of money), just a most enchant full thanks to our first TRUE LIBERAL, Jesus Christ. It is so elegant and soft. You will remember it as a dream. It also marks a 40-day period for Fouads Death, which is an important date to the Orthodox Ways. His Fathers sings with the chanters, I do not know if he can do it that day, but if he did, it would be... boy I could not comprehend that moment. Please, anyone, do not worry about who you are, or the way you look, or what your feeling is about god, just come and observe.
Why do weirdoes think that they can be right wing Christians, when The Messiah was put to terrible death for being too liberal? I mean, just the phrase "Right Wing Christians" makes no sense. THIS IS A SYRIAN ORTHIDOX CHURCH, ANY JEWISH FRIENDS PLEASE COME, dress in your own attire and come as you with PRIDE for Fuad, lets us make a model for the world. Maybe a little gesture like that alone can help not make his death vain.

Dear Samira and Rashid,
I have been thinking of you and your beautiful family since I heard the terrible news of Fouad's death. All I can offer your from this distance is my heartfelt prayers. I can only hope that you find some comfort in knowing what a wonderful young man he was and that he loved you both so much. I know that words can't really comfort you any more than they can convey how very sad I am.

Love, Linda

Fouad.... I grew up with your sister Andrea and I barely got to spend any time with you, but I feel as though I have lost one of my best friends. You trully had a smile and personality that could warm the hearts of anyone. I remember the little time that we had together so clearly. I will miss you my friend, very much.
To the family of Fouad: I want you all to know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers for the rest of my life, Please let me know if I can help in any other way. You can contact me at  jasetubania@yahoo.com.
P.S. Ann, stay strong

To my aunt and uncle, and cousins in portland, we might be away from you guys phisically, but our hearts and prayers will be with you always. The times weve spent with each other have been memorable and there was no one else i knew who enjoyed taking care of those he loved more than Fouad. He was a great person who always went out of his way to make those around him happy and we have all lost someone special. Those responsible for this tragic crime will soon realize the mistake they have made. We are here for you guys, we love all of you and you guys are in our thoughts everyday.
