“ Dear Dastmalchian Family,
Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of Ali. Words can't express how saddened I am to hear of your loss. The first thing that stood out to me was his kind spirit and authenticity. His passion for education and wanting what was best for students was evident from day 1. Ali was a leader who would take the time to listen to your ideas, provide valuable insights and suggestions, and support you 100%. He has been a mentor and friend to many within the Beedie family. He will truly be missed, but his spirit will remain with us always. My prayers and thoughts are with all of your family during this difficult time.
Doug Leong ”
