Condolences to Sis. Aaliyah and Family

PGMA Girl Scouts would like offer heartfelt condolences to Sis. Aaliyah and her family on the passing of her father earlier this week.

Sis Aaliyah has been a tremendous support for the Senior and Ambassador troops this year. Her daughter, Nabila, is a Senior Girl Scout with PGMA Girl Scouts.

May Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala ease their suffering and make the pain of loss an expiation.
