Kuwait lost a dutiful daughter four years ago and a remarkable
professional talent who left evident marks on all fields,
internationally and locally. Her commitment to Kuwait was the
paragon of human dedication. Her complete involvement, tempered
with love, fired by fierce devotion, demonstrated the highest
example in the service of our homeland and dedication to work.
The bereavement of Kuwait and its people is grave in the demise

her soul with mercy and to console her family and all the Kuwait
family and grant them patience and solace.
