We, the entire Wekullo family would like to extend our sincere and profound gratitude to all our friends, colleagues, relatives, and family for standing with us during the bereavement of our beloved mother, Mary Adongo Wekullo. Your messages of sympathy, words of comfort, prayers, physical presence, emotional and financial support, and overwhelming generosity are truly appreciated.
First, all thanks and praises be to the Almighty and benevolent God for his faithfulness and the blessings of a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunty, friend, and matriarch to many.
A very special appreciation goes to the doctors who have over the years treated and attended to Mama; Dr Charles Kariuki, Dr Elly Odongo, Dr Gaman, the medical team at Bungoma County Referral Hospital and the medical team at Fortis Memorial & Research Institute in New Delhi, Dr Vinod Raina and Dr Mukesh Pratekar, who worked tirelessly to treat her.
We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Consolata Shrine for offering Mass for Mama and to the entire clergy of Holy Spirit Catholic Church Bulimbo for giving Mama a beautiful send-off Mass. May the almighty God bless you abundantly for the special support, encouragement, and prayers. We also wish to thank Mama’s various church groups; CWA, Legion of Mary, Moyo Mtakatifu jumuiya and Sisters of the Holy Cross – Bulimbo, for walking with us and embracing our burden in our moment of sorrow.
We are equally grateful to H.E. Fernandez Barasa, Governor-Kakamega County, and other government representatives for standing with us in our hour of need.
Special thanks also go to the planning committees both in Nairobi and Mukhweya, for their outstanding commitment and dedication that went into ensuring that Mama had a befitting send-off. We are truly grateful to everyone who played a role in making this difficult time bearable.
To all the service providers for exceptional commitment in executing your respective duties to make Mama’s last journey memorable.
Since it is not possible to mention everyone, please accept this as a message of our sincere gratitude and appreciation to each and every one of you. We are truly humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and thoughtfulness during this period of mourning May God Bless you all abundantly.
Rest In Peace Mama
