Yunus, you will be dearly missed. We are so saddened by your passing and so grateful that for over 40 years we had a wonderful cousin and friend!
Rest In Peace and know you we’re loved!
What can I say about my Uncle Yunus. He was there from day 1. We were always close but became closer around 2013. I will miss our little jokes. I won’t forget the last Yankees game we attended (behind home plate) or the Nas and Lauryn Hill concert (which Ms. Hill was late of course). I won’t forget how you was always there for my family and me (birthday parties, graduations, birth of children, funerals). I’m so glad you met my son. I will tell him how great of a man you were. You will forever be in my thoughts. I love you Uncle Yunus and will always miss you.
This passing has hit my family hard. It still feels unreal but sitting here to write this makes it reality. Uncle Yunus treated my sisters and myself like we were his nieces by blood. He was so supportive to not only my family but also my mother’s side of the family. Everyone knows who Uncle Yunus is, friends included. Those who were lucky enough to have met him, even if it was only once, have nothing but positive things to say. His presence has touched a lot of people and that is one thing I’m going to miss the most. We have had the realest, uncut conversations about life. I don’t have a lot men in my life that I have such a genuine connection with so to lose you is very painful. When I think of my wedding, I imagine you being there with your camera, making jokes as always or when I have my first child, you will be there with no questions asked. There is a lot that I wish I could have said or done before you transitioned but I know this will not be the last time we see each other. Unfortunately, I was not able to give you crystals to protect you during your transition but I know your daddy will protect and guide you as we know you will do the same for us down on earth. Thank you for your support, advice and showing us unconditional love. I really am going to miss you Uncle Yunus. I’ll see you in my dreams. I love you forever. <3
Nadra, I, along with many others, worked with Yunus at Munich Re in NJ. I had sent him a few emails to catch up so now understand why he didn’t respond. We are just learning of his passing and quite upset by it. Sorry to bring up his painful passing again to you. Can you let us know what happened so I can let his workplace colleagues know? If not, I will understand and keep you and his family in my prayers. I loved our conversations about his travel. May he rest in peace.
