Bashar Salaman is in Heaven with the Lord he loved so much and served so well. He lived a life dedicated to Christ His work HERE was complete and God took him HOME.

Although we have the assurance and deep comfort that Bashar is at HOME with his Father in Heaven and walks daily with Jesus, the emotional and physical pain of missing him is sometimes overwhelming.

We love you and miss you so much Bashar! There would be a very large part of our lives missing without you having been part of it. You are still part of our family life and always will be until we meet again. The fun-filled times we had together are such happy memories, but the emptiness left now in our hearts will never be filled until we are together again. Life for us will never be the same but, despite the deep pain, we must go on living because that is exactly what God asks us to do (and we know that is what you would want us to do too as you were so positive about everything). We know God has a purpose for each one of us - until the day He calls us or comes to take us HOME.

Yours was a very special life - you are very special, loving and much loved by both friends and family. You certainly lived up to the meaning of your name - BASHAR - Bringer of good news- you had a loving heart and loved by everyone who knew you. "To live on in the hearts of those you love is NOT to die" - you have now just begun to live. You were and are loved by SO many people and many hearts are grieving because you are no longer here with us.

Bashar’s deep love for God was evident to all who knew him. He had a passion for the souls of people and could never understand anyone living without Christ in their lives.

It was GOD who had chosen the exact time, place and means of how and when Bashar would go Home to be with Him in Heaven - in His Sovereign will, He knew this even before Bashar was born: "All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be" - Psalm 139 v 16.

Bashar is survived by his mother Basma, sisters Gada, Hala, and Sahar, his Fiancé Zhan (Zoey), and his little dog Buddy.

The funeral will be held on Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. at Harborside Christian Church in Safety Harbor (address is: 2200 Marshall St, Safety Harbor, FL 34695). Burial will follow at Sylvan Abby Cemetery.
