In Memoriam Ariff Wan Latiff
 Ariff was an conscientious student who loved library and was an avid reader. I will remember him always as a smart and warm child.

As per Mr. Emr's letter, I have created a booklist I think he would have approved of. These books will be labeled In Memoriam: Ariff Wan Latiff.  

The link is here:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/67NUSVTKBJOA
After a book is purchased I will remove the title as to not duplicate it. 

Thank You,
James Byrne
