A donation for the Holy Bread has been made to St. Mary's Orthodox Church in Hunt Valley, MD by Mrs. Rafia Simaan and Mr. Wilhem Nijhof. Mr. Basil Fuleihan will be remembered in the Divine Liturgy on Sunday March 13, 2005. May God visit Basil in his time of distress and grant him health and healing. Please pray with us.

Chère Yasma,
Tu es dans mes pensées et prières tous les jours. Que Dieu donne à Basil la force et le courage de surmonter cette terrible épreuve pour voir le Liban renaître de ses cendres, et que Dieu te donne ainsi qu'à vos enfants, la force et le courage de l'accompagner dans sa guérison.
Je t'embrasse fort

We raise our prayers to Dr. Basil and his family.
Please God may my message as well as Lebanon's prayers strengthen his family.
Faith itself is a cure.
God be with you Dr. Basil.
We love you.

Dear Basil and family,

Yesterday, I was at the National Evangelical Church in downtown Beirut where Reverend Habib Badr updated us on Basíl's condition. Reverend Badr prayed for the recovery of Basil. I also pray to God to heal Basil's burns and bring him back to the country he loved so much.
I would like to add one thing: today, one month after the tragic death of Ex-Prime Minister Hariri, Lebanon is more united than anytime in its history. This proves that those criminals who planned and executed this horrible act failed in their intentions to create divisions in the Lebanese society.
God be with you.

Malek Wehbe.

Fadi Karam

Only GOD can make a man escape such an explosion. And because GOD wants you to survive, I am sure he will help you recover and live.

It's a matter of time before you will be back to your country, friends, family and supporters.

Till then, our thoughts and prayers are always with you and your family.

I have never met a Hero. Hope I can get to meet you when you're back to Lebanon.

Dear Yasma and the Fuleihan Family,

It has been a month since the infamous tragedy … We continue to hope and pray for Basil's recovery. On Monday the 14th of March, during the huge demonstration, many people were thinking of Basil and wishing he was amongst his fellow Members of Parliament. We heard the speeches of members of parliament who visited you, Yasma, last week. Everybody is praising your courage and resilience. With each new day, our hopes are raised evermore.

We pray for God to give you courage and strength.

Its been five weeks and this feeling of disbelief is still there. We pray the Lord to give you strength and heal your wounds; and, we pray the Lord to bring the culprits to justice.

It’s the truth of our deep feelings for him that will make us all miss him, each in his way. We have all witnessed the growth of this project under his supervision and the professionalism that he had in every matter small and big

We sure will miss him and the memories of our work with him will remain for a long time.

He was such a great example of a dynamic person who had a great dream and was trying his best to make everyone see it and to help achieve it in every possible way…. But no one had ever wanted that way to be a dark deadly unfair one.

Good bless him and may we all pray for his soul to rest in peace.

Hope to see you all this evening… another 41 candles has been blown off by the wind of injustice

Pamela Ghosn Aoun

We have kept you in our hearts and minds hoping our prayers help you in your struggle. With each prayer, vivid memories of your voice, your smile and the sparkle in your eyes guided us and strengthened our faith. You fought like a King, with courage and determination. You have become a Hero, a Noble Champion to so many people, Your Excellence… In your voyage towards Eternity, may God bless you with Peace, Love and Serenity.
Our love, prayers and warm thoughts go to your family. May God heal their sorrow and bless them.
We will never forget.

Nicolas Constantinesco

Can't add anything more to what Pamela Ghosn wrote. Can only give my deepest and wholehearted condolences to Yasma, his children and Bassel's family. This is a sad, very sad day for them, for his friends, but also for Lebanon!
Two exceptional and irreplaceable human beings murdered in cold blood by ruthless assassins...this should NEVER be allowed to happen again!

ghorayeb-garsault MariePaule

A toute la famille de Bassel, mes condoléances. Que Dieu le garde dans sa miséricorde.
Aucun de ceux qui l'on connu ne pourront l'oublier.
A son épouse et ses enfants, à sa maman et toute sa famille mes pensées émues et fidèles.

Carla Fleyhan

God Be with ur Soul Bassel fleyhan and gives power to ur family...
I hope that u re the LAST MARTYR in Lebanon ! ( everytime i say that sentence buttt another martyr comes!!))
i dont know if i have to blame the Sister or the pro sister here!!
God Helps Lebanon... other than manifestation, all we can do is to PRAY! "man kana 3indaho iman add zarra ze7 jabal!!!!" (Jesus Christ)


Dear Basil, a modest thought from someone who has always admired you: It is a crying shame and an utter disgrace to the human race that good men like you should depart this earth so prematurely while evil men seem to live long and prosper. You who have embodied goodness and imparted wisdom leave behind a gaping void, so scarce are men of your caliber. The law of the jungle prevails. I take solace in knowing that you are now in a better place, one far more suited to your noble nature. It is a comforting thought to know that you watch over us from above. In repose, therefore, as in life, I will always look up to you. In all sincerity, your friend, Munir Khauli.
