His family request that instead of flowers, a donation is made to ICIN in Suhail's memory. The following is a message in the family's own words
Dad was so passionate about ICIN. From its inception in 2007 he campaigned tirelessly for the displaced Iraqi Christians and over the years helped to raise thousands of Pounds to help make their lives more comfortable and to provide education for the young.
In honour of our father my family would request that instead of flowers you make a donation to the charity which was so close to his heart.
