Thande, Nyambura, Murugi, and Njuguna;
I pray for confort and peace at this difficult time in your lives. I cannot dare say I understand how you feel because I don't. I can only imagine. That is why I pray for confort and offer you my prayers. To live is Christ and to die is gain. God bless you.
I pray that your family may be filled with peace that surpasses human understanding. Truly sad to lose such a young and vibrant young lady. The Lord gives and the Lord takes. May her soul rest in eternal peace. May you be always comforted by her many wonderful memories.

Rest in Peace till we meet again!
Margaret, My heart goes out to you. I am sorry that I have no words that can offer any comfort to you at this time. Remember that God understands a mother's cry.
I wish you gentle and peaceful memories of your beloved daughter Wairimu whose time was too short for those who loved her. Yet, she will live on through you her mother, her father, brother and sister with the freest of spirit and her presence will remain larger than life. The tide of life may have erased her footprints, but only for the moment, for having walked here once , she remains always in your hearts. Her voice is quieted, but I know her smile and her spirit will echo in your hearts where your beautiful daughter will always be remembered.
May God love and grace be abundant in your lives at this impossible time and in the days to come.
My prayers are with you and your family. Joyce
Dear Marge and Njuguna,
May the Lord of all comfort embrace you and wipe away your tears. Sending you our love and prayers.
