“Wherever a beautiful Soul has been, there is a trail of beautiful Memories”
Mum, It has been 1 year since you left us. We vividly remember that Wednesday 14.01.2018 morning when you called some of your daughters to wish them a fun filled Valentine’s day and your assurance that you forever loved us. Little did we know that you would breath your last just 2 hours later.
There are no words Mum to express the emptiness we have felt this whole year. The grief, Pain and tears in our hearts has been unbearable and hard to deal with. Each day we continue to learn how to forge ahead without you, taking comfort in the fact that God takes his best and that nothing takes Him by Surprise.
We miss you profoundly, but yet truly appreciate that we are so blessed to have had you as our adorable mum. This we shall repeat throughout eternity with great thanksgiving to God who gave us the opportunity to know you personally the way we did Mum. Dearly missed by your mum Bennadette, Brother Henry, inlaws, nieces and nephews.
We continue to hear your Laughter in our hearts, we see your look of approval when we choose right even when no one is watching. We hear your voice reigning through the arguments in our hearts. We Are bound mum by what we learnt not just from what you said but from what you did. You loved us with such devotion and commitment and raised us to walk in truth, honour and humility and because of this we are so much better individuals Mama, because of the love and care you gave to many, we continue to be parented and cared for by those who ever knew you personally and interacted with you. Your Church, Friends, Siblings , Neighbours and former Workmates continue to care for us since you had very strong ties Mama across the world.
You always told us ” Musayi ni Mulitoho” and we continue to hold onto this and strive to ensure that our family remains forever bound together no matter what. You never tired when you focussed to achieve anything mum, that remains our driving force until this minute. Tears have flowed and continue to flow mum but we are comforted by the fact that you now sleep easy at Jesus Feet.
Fondly missed by your Children Carolyne, Roselyne Oddah’, Timothy, Edwin, and baby Michelle Your In-laws Cyrus, Francis, Dorah and Rosemary, Grandchildren, Tarryl, Steward, Tevin, Camil, Calcin, Kelvin, Keagan, George, Martha, Gabriel, Tracy, Howard, Ramsey and Little TatiAna.
There will be the First Memorial Service ( 1st Anniversary) on 16 02 2019 at her lleho home from 8.00A.M.
Sleep, Sleep Mama, Rest in Eternal Bliss. Till we meet again
Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed,” On this day, as we all remember and move on, find comfort that the Lord is close to you as we grieve.
Philippians 4:6-7 says, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done, Then you will experience God’s peace.”
