Dani we loved you but God loves you most. Rest in peace
2 Timothy 4:7″ I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
Dana,my god given mom. Without you,I wouldn’t be who I am today.
You were a disciplinarian,teacher,farmer,hard worker among many.
You ensured me and my siblings got the rightful education. Anyone who followed your teachings to the latter is a success and a true reflection of your values.
I can’t forget how life was when we used to walk to kodiaga market until one day the unthinkable happened… it’s been God. The journey has been long and God had a reason to keep you with us all these while.
U were the family button that held us together,I hop we get another one like you amongst us to keep ur legacy.
