Waleed Joseph Iskandar was one of those rare and remarkable individuals who managed to touch the lives of everyone he knew. He had many interests, and he believed in living his life to the fullest. He loved traveling, cycling, skiing, water-skiing, diving, roller-blading, eating good food, drinking fine wine and spending time with his family and his many friends. Known for his compassion and kindness, many of his friends remember his irrepressible optimism and his ever-present smile. He was also extremely bright and could give over to his quieter, contemplative side. He believed that every individual has a right to happiness, dignity, and opportunity and that accepting life’s difficulties is a crucial part of achieving happiness.

Memories keep the one you loved close to you in spirit and thought and always in your heart, today and forever.

It is with all my love and respect for Waleed, that I write these quotes: "Treat today as if you won't exist tomorrow." "Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart." "The rainbows of life follow the storm." "The sky does weep, but tears of joy."
My cousin Waleed tried to come into God's presence; he used his special keys -- love, love, love and love. We love you Waleed! You lived. We’ve learned.
