Teresa & her wonderful family, it is with great sadness that I share my condolences with each of you. In such a short time of connecting with Teresa and Hamid at Hilltop House, it has warmed my heart to learn from and exchange stories of India, political banter, and simple quality time during activity programs and our ‘social’ lunch hours. Hamid never hesitated to insist on a daily ‘Hello! How are you? Why don’t you stay and tell me more...!’ with his resident peers and support staff at Hilltop House. An attentive listener and genuine compassionate, I will always remember our reminscing of Indian geography, sights, sounds and travel ambitions, and our beloved chair yoga & ‘world events’ discussions over coffee hours. A beautiful soul to reach in such little time.

Teresa, family, friends and supports of Hamid, I am with you in spirit, mind and body during this challenging time. With love, Mackenzie Parker - Activities, Hilltop House.

Dearest Teresa and family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. We are so glad that we went to Akber’s wedding this summer and had a chance to spend some time with him. He was entertaining as usual. We always remember the suppers that we had together with him especially at Shauket’s house and how comical he was during the meals. We wish you, Teresa, and the family strength and comfort in each other, especially at this time. Our deepest condolences and much love, Mario and Carol

Dear Theresa and family, I want to express my deepest condolences in the loss of your husband and father, Hamid. I got to know Hamid while working the Night shift at Hilltop House. He liked to chat and we had many conversations about our families, dogs, and various topics. A kind and caring man, he was genuinely interested to hear how things were going for you. He offered me advice on natural remedies such as turmeric, telling me all about the wonders of its properties. He even phoned his housekeeper in England so she could chat with me about how to make turmeric tea. I retired from Hilltop in May of 2017, and stopped by to visit Hamid a couple of times. I was contemplating visiting him during the day on January 30th, but did not, which I now regret. I am saddened at the passing of this lovely gentleman, and I can understand how very difficult it must be for you his family at this time. Thinking of you, with prayers. I will always treasure the memories, Hamid. Till we meet again … With love from Marion Lindsay mariontlindsay@gmail.com
