"I can't promise you I'll be okay, but I promise I will bring our kids up the way we planned together. You'll always be missed because of the way you were humble, funny, loving, caring, and most of all a wonderful husband and father.
"'For sure it is God who created us and to him we shall return.' You have gone, but will NEVER be forgotten. May you rest in peace and our next meeting will be in Jannah. In Sha Allah."
