Today, July 20, 1997, my grandfather, Mike Nassef Balman, died, and this is my pledge to keep his story alive. He was the reincarnation of the 12-year-old boy who died on the Titanic on April 14, 1912. He was the 12-year-old boy who was born instantly to the man who tried so hard to save him. The man who tried to save him was my great grandfather, Nassef Cassem.
