We were looking forward to seeing Shabnam the week after next and taking her round Leeds Castle in Kent, but sadly it was not to be. She was such a lovely addition to our family, and it was a great pleasure welcoming her to London, as well as visiting in Toronto. Difficult to believe we will not see her again, she will be much missed by all of us in England.

Since I am a close friend of Shabnam's mom, I had the pleasure of meeting this lovely young lady 3 or 4 times. Her warmth and grace had touched us and we will never forget her. An unrepairable loss for the family.

I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to her husband David, her parents and the entire family on the death of Shabnam. I was a teacher in Cologne-Porz when Shaban went to school here until 1989 and graduated from high school. I remember her as a very good student, as a very approachable and friendly young woman. I will give her a place in my life. I mourn with you and wish you strength and confidence.
