It is with great sadness that learned today of Nazih's passing. My heart breaks for all of you. Nazih was a truly amazing soul; kind, generous, gracious. With every visit to the restaurant, he made our family feel special. He doted I the children as if they were part of your own family. We have not lived in Greenville for 7 years, but we put the Pita House as a must visit whenever we "come home". Nazih and all of you will always have a special place in our hearts. Our prayers are with you all. Jennifer, Mark, Gabriel and Simone

Our sincere sympathy goes out to our dear Pita House family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during your time of loss. Your family and restaurant have been a part of our lives for 30 plus years. No restaurant does middle eastern food quite like the Pita House. We know Nazih will be terribly missed by his family, friends, and Pita House customers. With great fondness, Scott, Lisa, Anna Louise Panhorst and Joanne Jones

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Nazih was always so friendly to me and always asked about my family. When my mom was still alive he always asked about her; she had spent a few years in Beirut, Lebanon in the early 1950's and enjoyed meeting Nazih and your whole family! When she died in 2010, Nazih expressed his condolences to me. He was a wonderful man and will surely be missed by many. May God be with all of you during this time of grief.

Joe Harris left a message on June 4, 2021:
Early in my visits to the Pita House I had them write their names in Arabic. When I gave them honey I wrote their names on each jar. I was honored that Nazih could read my script! Today I told my neighbor, Mrs. Janet Sanders, of Nazih's "graduation." Her daughters grew up with Nazih's children. Janet kept saying she was heartbroken. My Marcia went ahead March 26; so I'll remind Manal that our grief will turn to joy.
