Toufic El Achkar


  May 30th, 2009.


Toufic El Achkar returned to Bazbina on 25th May 2009 to attend the burial ceremony of his mother, Adibeh Chahda, who passed away in Houston on 22nd May 2009. She lived for 85 years of continuous strive and hard work. She was known to everyone as Maalmeh Adibeh (Teacher Adibeh) as she used to be a teacher and the principal of the school in Bazbina for decades.  Adibeh, God bless her soul, was loved and respected by everyone in the village and, likewise, she tremendously loved all. Under her patronage several social associations were established in Bazbina.

In the attached documents, there are some pictures and the eulogy that Toufic delivered in the Church of St. Georges in Bazbina during the burial ceremony.
