I had become used to the bouquets of flowers Hasan honoured me with every time he attended my classes.
Hasan, that well-mannered, cheerful boy. God compensated him for his lack of height by granting him a lovely open-minded spirit. His friends adored him; he had endearing nicknames and kind words for them all.
