"May God rest her soul in peace.
One of my fondest childhood memories was when we visited Aunt Gita's beautiful house in Kafarchima. My siblings, cousins, and I would play outside for hours. Afterwards, we would get back in the house for a huge spread put on by Aunt Gita. She was so kind, generous, and loving. We will miss you..."
