A part of me died today at the hearing of the loss of the greatest man I have ever worked for and known. I was his private secretary/office manager with a pool of six typists and filing clerks. He is the kind of person that cannot be replaced. I loved this man with all my heart for his goodness and compassion other than his influence and prestige, and a humble heart.
In the Middle East the Sabbath is considered only for the Jews and not looked at with much respect. I was a Sabbath keeper. Yet, Ali Ghandour allowed me to keep Sabbath for 10 years working for Jordanian Airlines in Amman, then at Cairo International Airport, Egypt. I need to write a book about him.
When Ghandour left Jordanian Airlines, the new President tried to force me to work on Sabbath. He was a fanatic man. God was opening a way for me to immigrate to the USA 30 years ago. I received my immigration papers in six months which takes years in the Middle East.
