    I will miss my dear friend deeply. Talking with her 2-3 times a day and laughing over many things. Shahin had a big heart and she loved everyone. I learned so many things from this special lady. Goodbye my dear friend. I love you!

    Shahin has been in my heart since I met her in Washington DC. I remember visiting her apartment and talking with DEE DEE and all of her birds. We lost touch for many years and then one day, she called. I will miss her in my life....again. Shahin will be with the one she loved the most in life, Rick. We will miss you Shahin.

    I have loved knowing Shahin for many years. Sharing a love for flowers and good grocery deals. I will miss her terribly. Her patriotic spirit and love for God were an inspiration.

    We first met Shahin 8 years ago when we started taking apples to her home. Over the years we became friends and she always remembered each member of our family (all 5 of our children) with Christmas gifts and in her prayers. Her faith was evident in the way she lived and treated others. We will truly miss her and the encouragement she offered our family.
