1st Anniversary

Days, weeks and months have today turned into a year since the Lord took you in His arms to be home with Him. Our hearts continue to hurt as we no longer hear your beautiful songs, feel your kindness and touch, see your joyous smiles, love and your warm embrace to all. Although you are no longer in our lives, you are permanently engraved in our hearts.

You are fondly missed by your Parents, Siblings, Nephews, Nieces, Aunties, Uncles, Cousins, Colleagues, Classmates and Friends.

As a family, we extend our deepest appreciation to all who walked with Jenny all throughout her sickness and all who stood by us in the provision of material and moral support that ensured Jenny got a befitting send-off. Kindly accept our big ‘Thank You’ and, may the Almighty God bless you abundantly!

In God’s hands Jenny, you Rest In Everlasting Peace. In our hearts Baby Girl, you live forever!
