I have wanted to write this note to you for over a month, but my words have been overcome with grief and I never knew exactly what to say. From the bottom of my heart, I am truly sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine the pain you as a family are experiencing, but you have been-and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.
Sami was my best friend, and he meant the absolute world to me. Sami taught me so many great lessons in life, and those lessons I will forever cherish. Sami taught me the true meaning of friendship and unconditional love. I find peace and comfort in knowing that he will always be a part of my life and he will continue to shape the person I grow to be every day.
Most importantly, I want to thank you. I want to thank you for raising Sami to be the most incredible man I have ever known. With his outgoing personality, Sami made friends everywhere he went. He had a heart of gold and the most infectious smile. He grew to be such a great man, and I am forever thankful for you, his family, for raising him to be so kind and humble.
I hope one day I will meet you so that I can thank you in person, but I want to send my condolences and let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
