Across the seemingly never-ending heavens we reach out to touch God in every way we can, with every possible instrument or machine to somehow understand him & his Universe. Yet in all of its wonder and beauty there is so much more than we could ever imagine, countless stars, vast and wild plains of mystery and incomprehensible treasure. In Memory of our beloved child and inspiration to all of us this photo has been dedicated to Fadi Marto who left this world into the realm of our Holy father to join his Love and wisdom. In his devotion to kindness and unconditional Love he offered to all those around bringing many tears of joy and comfort to his family and colleagues; Fadi was such a man who can only be described as an Angel on Earth free from all sin and full of Love. Despite the immeasurable overwhelming pain of losing you we shall forever embrace you in our arms until such time we join you in paradise. For now we bid you farewell for a short time cousin. May you roam the Cosmos and fly ever so high amongst us. This one is for you.
