      I was a very close friend of Anis and was preparing to help her move from Houston, where I’ve known Nisi, to Dallas. When I found out my bestfriend was killed it hurt me so much that I didn’t want to believe it. She was a great person with an extremely giving heart. I love you Anis and extend my prayers to your family and friend in Dallas. God Bless

    I just can’t believe I knew Anis she worked on my case when I had my car accident. She’s such a sweetheart and still is unbeliveble that we lost her on such traggic away.
    I just lost my sister on July 8th with a drunk driver killed my sister and my brother in law. I just can’t believe such horrible away to die.
