Obituary for Daoud Atef Labib
On April 27, 2017, heaven gained an angel. Although he was strong and brave, Daoud lost his battle to an aggressive form of cancer. It was a blessing and honour to be with him on his journey. We know that in his short time on this earth, he has accomplished the mission his Lord sent him out to do. Daoud gained his wings and the world lost a hero. Daoud will be sadly missed by his parents Elizabeth Labib and Steve Kyoz, grandparents Louris Labib, Nadhira Yousef and Salam Kyoz, aunts Sarah and Gabby Labib, uncles Bashar, Khalid (Jessica), Alan Kyoz, great grandparents Mary Nasralla, Aida Nasralla and Nuria Amuroi, great uncles John (Lynn) and Wafik Nasralla, cousin Jayla Kasende, family members and friends. Daoud will be joining his grandfather Atef Labib, great grandparents Samir Nasralla, Girgis Labib, Kyoz Lazim, Hakeema Yousef and Abdul Wahed in heaven. A celebration of his life will be held at St. George & St. Anthony’s Church, 1081 Cadboro Rd, May 5, 2017 at 1pm. Burial at Pinecrest Cemetery at 3pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made on behalf of Daoud Labib to either Candelighters Childhood Cancer Support Programs or Childhood Cancer Foundation Canada

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell[a] in the house of the Lord
