Joanne and Fouad Tawfilis founded the Art Miles Mural Project and the Muramid Mural Museum in Oceanside, CA. Their aim is to help art teachers incorporate art into curriculum, including environmental and technology studies, which enhances the students learning despite the lack of funding for arts in most schools. 

On Monday, September 19th Fouad went in for a routine procedure but was not properly tended to by medical staff and as a result suffered a heart attack. His death was unexpected and horrifying - as he suffered right before Joanne's eyes. 

As friends of Joanne and Fouad Tawfilis, our hearts ache for our wondrous friends-  one of the world's greatest couples- both humanitarians and peace makers, the Tawfilis' have touched the lives of millions through their years of devoted service to Humanity. 

They are in need of our help to cover Fouad's final expenses. The service and burial will cost a minimum of $3,000. Any donation of any size will help. 

**In lieu of flowers, PLEASE consider a donation to help cover his expenses on this "GoFundMe" Page.

Reception & Refreshments to follow at 4:00pm:

Love to all!

Dear Family, Friends, and all those ANONYMOUS...THANK YOU SO MUCH from the bottom of my heart. Your generosity has already helped immensely with final farewells and will also ensure that Fouad's final resting place will be getting a headstone/marker he deserves. I will respond to all those identified personally, but want to let those of you that remain anonymous, how touched I remain and how I feel Fouad's presence and know that he lives through me always. He is above watching the LOVE and CARE that has been expressed and that warms my heart so much even though I miss him terribly with every moment I breathe. Thank you again for your immense generosity and thoughtfulness...I know it came from your hearts as well...love to all...Joanne

The GENEROSITY of so many loving people has touched my heart and I know that Fouad is smiling knowing that each of you have helped lift a big burden from my shoulders. I am forever grateful that this enables me to bring Fouad to his final resting place where I will join him one day. Meanwhile, you can count on me working doubly hard to continue the work and pay tribute to his spirit with love and the same passion he shared while here on earth with all of us! THANK YOU THANK YOU...I will be in touch with you all soon. Love, Joanne

Mrs. Joanne, thank you for marrying Mr. Fouad. If it had not been for him I would have never received such a royal name - Princess Tawfilis Aurora. I'm so proud to be called "Tawfilis".

I will never forget Mr. Fouad’s kind face and beautiful smile. He has truly spread peace and love throughout the world. I believe Mr. Fouad was like a bright light, and that light will never burn out; it will continue to show us the way to a more peaceful world.

We have been blessed to know and spend time with Fouad and will always cherish the memories. He was a true gift to this world, a Peacemaker. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” Matthew 5:9
