The firsts are always the hardest when it comes to the death of a loved one, your first Christmas without them, their first birthday after they are gone and if you had kids together, your children’s first birthday without their dad.

Today was especially hard for Zari Hassan as the late tycoon would be turning 40 today. Zari sent out this heartbreaking message.“Happy Birthday Don, gone but never forgotten. You are missed. It’s not the same, the kids miss you so much. We do pray for you every single day, may you continue resting in peace.”
