    Our dear Papa. From the time Mary introduced me to you in 2004. You loved me as your own daughter. The visits at home and conversations we had were full of laughters and showed how much you loved and welcomed the friends to your children. We thank God for the time he has given us all to interact with you. May your soul rest in peace. Mary may the good Lord comfort you during this very tough moment of your life. I know how much you loved your dad. Amen.

    Papa dear, I never ever met you but my friend Mercy Abiro Owilla spoke very lovingly of you, each time, with a smile on her face. That way I got to know the great man that you were. Together we prayed and trusted God for your full recovery, but He decided otherwise. Who are we to question Him?

    Rest with the angels papa, thank you for positively impacting everyone you interacted with during your time here on earth. See you on the other side.
