With a heavy and sad heart I write this post. Little Rayyan, who was suffering from leukemia, passed away peacefully in the early hours of Thursday of June the twelfth. He would have turned three in October. It was only the Saturday before that we went to see him and how he was having a wonderful afternoon watching his favourite show tom tom bak and doing some colouring in the Little Einsteins book we got him. That image will forever be in my mind. Rayyan, you will be greatly missed and we love you. Al-Fatihah.
This post is also dedicated to little Aiman, a boy I have never met and only knew through stories from my mother. He too had leukemia. He passed on two weeks after his third birthday on February the seventeenth earlier this year. Al-Fatihah.
They were both much loved and they knew it.
