    Dinah, I know how much you loved Barnabas. But I even know how much he loved you. Even though fate has brutally snatched him away from you, I am sure he is still here in your heart and will always be. Even death cannot part away you two.
    My heart aches when I think about your loss. Your husband was an amazing person to have around. I’m so lucky to have met him in this life.
    You two looked so amazing together. I am sure he is in heaven watching over you.
    Please accept my heartfelt condolences…may Natambas soul rest in peace.

    Words may not suffice to express the heartfelt sorrow that I feel for the passing of Barnabas.
    Dinah, may you be able to count your blessings, no matter what life brings. Come rain or shine, through thick or thin, may God’s peace abide from within. Take heart, find solace in the Lord, God. He will always comfort you.
    And don’t forget, dear Dinah, that we/I shall always be there when you need us/me.

    Rest in peace Barnabas. You reached out to me when I didn’t know you and we ended as friends. I saw you grow professionally, and I experienced your passion for academia. I was saddened by your passing. You left us too soon but I know you are in a better place. May God comfort Dinnah, children and the rest of the family members

    It is extremely hard to take in but that is what God has planned. Dinah may God strengthen and stand with you and family. Rest in eternal peace my friend Dr.BNK. May God receive you with both hands. You had not done anything wrong to die at such a young age. I knew you as a hard worker since our primary school days. You really worked for success and you were getting there step at a time.
