Shaheen I will miss you my brother. I looked forward to the time we got spend together at work. We always smiled together , and you were always so thoughtful, generous and kind. Spoke with passion and listened intently. I wished we would have gotten the chance for more mountain adventures together. Your presence will be deeply missed and I will always think of you when I walk amongst the cascading landscapes of Utah . I hope you are at peace. We will always remember your kindred spirit and the way you accepted all challenges with a smile. Goodbye for now dear friend.
