The bereaved family of two Pakistani men who lost their lives in a submersible implosion during a descent to the wreckage of the Titanic recently held a virtual memorial service. During the heartfelt ceremony, they expressed their gratitude to all those who had attempted to rescue the father and son, as well as those who had sent condolences from around the world.

The prayer service was organized by the family of Shahzada Dawood and his 19-year-old son, Suleman, following the confirmation that everyone aboard the Titan submersible had tragically perished near the Titanic site. Shahzada Dawood’s widow, Christina Dawood, was overcome with emotion as she fondly shared cherished memories of her beloved husband and son. On June 18, while onboard a support vessel, she received the devastating news of the communication loss with the Titan submersible during its journey to the ocean floor.

In her poignant address, Christina expressed her sincere appreciation for all the support and assistance the family had received during this difficult time. The memorial service was broadcasted on YouTube through the Dawood Foundation, the family’s charitable organization.

Shahzada and Suleman Dawood were members of one of Pakistan’s renowned families, and during the service, Hussain Dawood, the father of Shahzada, referred to his son and grandson as divine blessings that had been reclaimed by the Almighty. He further acknowledged them as martyrs, stating that “martyrs go straight to paradise.”

He posed a profound question to the audience, contemplating what a father would say in the face of such a tragedy. Hussain Dawood recounted how his son and grandson had eagerly anticipated their visit to the Titanic and had even convinced him to consider an expedition to Antarctica in the upcoming winter.

“I am utterly convinced that they have enriched our lives immeasurably,” Dawood declared with determination. “We will carry forward their legacy.”

During her reminiscences, Christina Dawood shared cherished moments of her initial encounter with her husband and their wedding in Lahore, Pakistan’s eastern city. When Suleman was born, her husband’s joy mirrored that of any father, but it was evident to Christina that their bond was extraordinary. She sensed that they were destined to be lifelong companions on countless adventures.

The memorial service offered solace and an opportunity to remember the lives of Shahzada and Suleman Dawood, two individuals who left an indelible mark on their family and community. Their memories will forever be treasured, and their legacy will inspire others to embrace life’s adventures with vigor and love.
