    Your demise came as a great shock to us.However as christians we can not question the will of God; for it pleased him to call you to eternal rest at such a time.
    You lived a life of humility and you were an epitome of kindness and love.There are no words good enough to thank you for the opportunity you gave me.
    We the Kidiya family shall miss your advice,sense of humor and your broad and catchy smile.
    I pray that all your beloved ones find solace in the word in John 11:25 and that you find rest and perfect peace in the bosom of our Lord.
    Till we meet again.

    It’s a great blow how you have left, when hope had grown. We were not only school mates at King’s College Budo but also lived in Africa House with you and your brothers, Oundo and Ogalo. I visited your parents home in Jinja several times, especially ehen your late brother was dtill with us.
    We were together in University Hall, and when you married Beatrice, I stood by you as uour bestman.
    May the good Lord recive you and Rest in Peace, brother.
