Our Self-Written Obituaries – Khadeejah Gibran Raja, Medina, Saudi Arabia
The 122nd death.

In memory of Mrs. Khadeejah Gibran.
She did her living! Climbed mountains, flew hot air balloons, traveled from Rome to China, played Bach, enjoyed Dostoevsky, and lived on sushi.
Married the man of her dreams, honeymooned in Paris, sketched in the long summer nights of Barcelona, and went exploring on their motorbike while 7 months pregnant. Had two beautiful children, and discovered just how fulfilling selfless love could be.
She treated the world like her personal oyster. Disliked the idea of life in black and white, and lived out hers in all the amazing grey areas and wonderful shades in between. But while she was busy adoring the world – she managed to adore the Maker of the world even more.
Obsessed with going up in space… escaping this earthly body, finally she did.
