    Taata we enjoyed and were honored to share a meal with you in our home. We shared a few moments of being with you on several other times. Mostly it was comforting to know that from another time you and my father had made your connection and that led to relationships that have been nurtured. We thank God who plans it all and brings it all together. We thank God for your life and the impact it has had on all of us. May your soul rest in peace. May the Lord fill us all with comfort and strength.
