Greetings:

Welcome friends, family members, community leaders, church leaders and everyone who knew and came into contact with Ahmad.  Robson Grant, one of the very best writers to ever pen his thoughts on paper, wrote a piece that was very dear to Ahmad.  We have read this poem countless times and its meaning hold true till the end of time.

I know you’re still out there

Living life with your kind of flair

Standing with your face to the sun

Picturing your time to come

Many clouds have passed by

Since we stood under the same sky

Taking in the summer sights

Howling at the city lights

I still remember when we were young

Pulling pranks just for fun

Summer vacations were such a blast

The kind of memories that will always last

Growing up the future seemed like such a sure thing

Thought we knew what it would bring

True love, a family, a house in the hills

Work hard, play hard and don’t sweat the bills

Never guessed things would change so much

Thought our friends would never lose touch

The stars seemed so clear from our domain

I sure could handle some of those good times again

Even if our dreams still seem far away

Our friendship will be right here to stay

Until we are both gone

The road between us will never be too long…

Ahmad was such a dear friend to me. I will never forget how much fun we had together. I was having difficulty deciding what to say here today, so I decided to make a list, and talk about the things that I will miss most about him.

I will miss the way we used to laugh at silly things in the back of class; we would write the silliest things and post them on peoples back without their knowledge.

I will miss when we used to dress up, go to a fast food joint, and pretend we were eating at a fancy restaurant.

I will miss watching movies with you, and talking about how certain things in them could never happen.

I will miss the way you used to eat chocolate cereal with chocolate milk, even though I thought it was disgusting.

I will miss writing poems 4 your girls for you because your mind would go blank anytime you were in their presence.

I miss the many sports debate..Cowboyz, Ravens, Wiz, Lake show, Rockets, Madrid, Milan, Barca…Lemieux over Gretzky (lol)

I will miss our weekend kayaking trips and summer rafting trips. (I remember that one summer we went to the Shenandoah area and how you saved my life from our kayaking accident.  I almost drowned.  I will never forget that man; you saved my life by risking yours.)

I will miss the way you snored before falling asleep.  Dude you were horrible.  But I think I am worst.

I will miss our arguments over everything, but mostly over politics.

But most of all, I will miss my friend. Ahmad, you were so important to me. I will never forget all the great times we had together. We experienced so much together, good and bad, but both came out the other side better people and closer friends. My only regret is that we never got to have that final chat.  It would have been very helpful; It’s been two weeks and the pain and regrets still overwhelm me.  I am sorry. You were beautiful and charming, funny and annoying. I will miss everything about you bro.  Life has to go on without you but I know you’re up there cracking jokes with your favorite writers and artists; (tell Ish to pass the ball man lol).  I have come to understand that death is not something to be scared about, but something to look forward to. It’s about living life to the fullest and being the best that you can be.

I love you fam.

    Loss is never easy and as time goes by all we can do is weep when we are sad, but most of all smile for the good times and hope they knew how much they meant to us. Your piece was sincere, honest and true.
