1 Year on After ABG lost its Closest Brother and Friend
The 3rd of December 2017 marked truly sad and sorrowful event in the history of Al-Burhan Group. Exactly one year earlier Kumait Al-Ali who worked with Al-Burhan Group as International Sales Director for more than twenty years has suddenly breathed his last breath and departed this world infinitely.
Even though his flesh has left us, he will always remain in our fond memory. Therefore, on that day an event to celebrate the late Kumait’s memory has been organised in the Al-Burhan Centre. Family and friends gathered together and celebrated their lost brother’s memory.
The evening began with a religious ceremony and was then proceeded by speeches, each unique and moving in its own way. Prof. Khalil Al-Ali, the late Kumait’s father was assuring the crowd that he is a proud father who has lost his exceptional son. Shortly after him, Mr Imad Burhan, Al-Burhan Group Managing Director spoke about his sorrow after his dearest friend has left and that the time since has passed unbelievably quickly. Al-Ameen Raif, General Manager at Al-Burhan Centre shared his feelings after he was deprived of his teacher and a friend. Angel, as the late Kumait was described by everyone, was remembered for all the good deeds he has done for the others. Every person attending the event, regardless if he knew the deceased in person or not, was deeply moved and the tears of sorrow were not uncommon. Moreover, the Group’s team members have prepared and screened short video commemorating the late Kumait and multiple beautiful flower bouquets were laid beneath the late Kumait’s statue.
The event was next followed by informal gathering during Middle Eastern food and snacks served in the surroundings of traditional tents enhanced the atmosphere of exchanging more or less formal stories of the deceased. The attendees’ emotions and actions were natural and straight from the heart as they were united in remembering the late Kumait Al-Ali, the true member of the Al-Burhan family.
