To Mrs. Sandra and family, I send my deepest condolences. For the short time I've gotten to spend with Najib, he's inspired me in many ways. His transformation, growth, and determination was unmatched. It breaks my heart that he is no longer with us. I pray for strength for the family. May God continue to cover you all.

For a parent it can never be any harder!
Sandra no one can imagine what you are going through.
Please hung in there and let God prevail.
It's not our place to ask God 'WHY' other than trusting him
May he rest his soul in eternal peace
