May’s passing is indeed a great loss for all her friends and for The Cairo Museum and in fact for all the Egyptological scene in Cairo where she helped so many people! I have known her for a very long time and she was always the same, a wonderful friend, devoted to others and to Egyptology, always kind, understanding, and respectful towards everyone and unassuming. May was sincerely respected and loved by all those who knew her. May God bless her soul and may she rest in peace. She will be greatly missed.
