The Lebanese community has lost a virtuous lady, Zohour Rizk, Widow of the late Toufic Rizk from Ras-Baalbek. The news of her death left a great sadness in the family.
Many have known (OUM Michael) the woman as one who gave and sacrificed in silence and has become an example of faith, goodness and humanity.
Her generosity cannot be erased from memory. She is the mother who raised a family with her companion on the noblest qualities, ethics and virtues. Her family today is a shining example to society.
