Dear family of Elias Hilaneh,

As a teacher at Timken High School, I felt privileged to have in French class the children of this intelligent, strong, courageous man. I admired his commitment to family. All of the family members are exceptional. Also exceptional in my memory were his wife Jamileh's culinary skills, which gave her husband a small glimpse of the the heaven he now enjoys. Lamice, Hisham, Jazlah, Mary, Maiy, John and Jamileh, I am truly sorry for your great loss and will keep you all in my prayers. God bless your beautiful family. Much love to you all.
Sincerely, "Mademoiselle" aka Lisa Dreussi O'Brien
