The memorial service of 26-year-old air hostess Yara Hani Tawfik who died on the EgyptAir MS804 flight was held yesterday, May 21 at St. Mary and St Athanasius Church in Cairo.
The victim’s elderly grandmother Anna Yara collapsed at the service and concerned friends and relatives rushed to her aid. One held the grandmother face as she was overcome with grief.
Nahla Wagih, a friend of Miss Tawfik, said: “It is so sad to see the family in this state. There are no words to describe her loss. Yara was the perfect daughter and grand-daughter. The family must be broken. I don’t know what words of comfort to say to them”
Mrs Wagih, who worked with Miss Tawfik as a flight attendant on Egypt Air, was one of hundreds of relatives, friends and colleagues who attended the memorial, to which MailOnline was invited.
A large picture of Miss Tawfik was put up in the church between cross of flowers during the 40-minute service. Afterwards, members of her family stood in a line outside the orthodox church as mourners paid their respects.
