Wairimu ‘Nimo’ Cherono Gatere

 1st Anniversary

It has been a year since you departed from our midst. Though physically separated we celebrate all the wonderful memories. Your hugs and pure spirit, your warmth and loving smile will forever be in our hearts. You were a precious gift and blessing.

We rest in the assurance that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Lovingly remembered and dearly missed by your parents Cosma and Betty, brothers Chang and Nderito, together with your entire extended family and friends.

Special thanks to family and friends who have encouraged and journeyed with us all through. God bless you all and reward your acts of kindness.

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So, we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2nd Corinthians 4: 17- 18
