Support for Fadil Delkic's Family

My name is Emili Sabanovic, I am the niece of Fadil Delkic. We are Bosnian-Americans living in Atlanta, Georgia. 

Fadil Delkic, a father, friend, son, brother, husband, and amazing soul was shot and killed on August 19th, 2018 at the Walmart on Scenic Highway in Snellville, Georgia around 5:30 pm. Fadil and his wife, Bahra Delkic, were driving through the parking lot when an argument ensued with a man and his fiancé. The fiancé first struck Fadil. The woman's fiancé, Troy Hunte, then shot Fadil once in the chest and he was later pronounced dead at Gwinnett Medical. 

In his twenties, Fadil survived a concentration camp during the Bosnian War, exceeded as a refugee in several different countries, and fought hard to give his family the life they have. It was not his time to depart our lives. He has three beautiful children. The eldest daughter is pregnant and due in November, the middle daughter shares his humor and bright spirit, and the 19 year old son has inherited his father's kind heart and selflessness. Fadil will now never get to meet his first granddaughter. He has three siblings that would give their lives for him. He was loved by all of his friends and did anything for anyone. He touched the hearts of hundreds of people. He was a selfless character with one of the purest hearts. He was often heard singing loudly and laughing at the joys of life despite all that he has gone through and seen with the war. 

With this unexplainable and sudden loss, the family is suffering greatly. Especially Fadil's wife, Bahra, who witnessed everything that took place and is in extreme shock. The two were deeply in love and have been married for 27 years. This tragedy is devastating for everyone that knew Fadil. We kindly ask now for donations to help with transporting his body to Bosnia so that he can be buried in his birthplace, where he felt most happy and at peace. We also need assistance with the trial so that Troy Hunte and the killer's fiancé can get the sentencing that they deserve. Thank you to all who have spoken kindly of Fadil and sent prayers. We will be grateful for any donations of any amount to aid us in this extremely horrendous and heartbreaking situation. We hope that everyone remembers Fadil Delkic as the jovial, hard-working man that he will always be remembered as. 

We would need the funds by August 30th. The funds will help pay for the transportation of the body to Bosnia, the funeral expenses in Bosnia, and the lawyer needed to aid us in the trial. I plan on withdrawing the funds directly into the wife's bank account so that her and her children can make use of it. Thank you once again.
