A Memorial of a Life well Lived

Ms. Baindu Siryon of Houston, Texas, the  Siryon, Sirleaf, Dukuly, Kanneh, Sirleaf, Dorley, Dukuly, and Kromah families regret to announce with deep sadness the unexpected and  untimely home going of their father, son,  brother, uncle, nephew and cousin, Mr. Ishmael Malik  Siryon.

Our loving, caring, vivacious and amicable Ishmael was shot and killed as he attempted to enter his residence on September 28, 2014 in Houston, Texas. Consistent with Islamic tradition the remains of Ishmael have been laid to rest.

In keeping with tradition, a 40th Day Religious Sacrifice has been planned to honor and celebrate the transition of Ishmael to the heavenly realms.

The detail is as follows:
