"My dear Elfu, it is hard to let you go. We have been dear friends since our childhood. Your kindness was unlimited to every one around you and full of respect.
The few days I spent with you last January in Los Angeles gave me the last chance to chat about religion and more that I will cherish the rest of my life. I will keep your pictures with me.
I know you are in a better place (Heaven). "Belemeleme mesk
I love you Elfu always.
"Rest in eternal peace, Elfuye. Thank you for the gentle and kind motherly love you have shown us all even during the times you were not feeling your best. May God give the family strength and solace during this difficult time. Elfuye will be missed dearly but her love and kindness will stay with us forever."
"It was the summer of 1991. I was a teanager embarking on the voyage of adulthood. You welcomed me with unconditional kindness. I have always cherished that memory and will always cherish that beautiful memory.
My heart aches as I try to put words together.
Your gentle ways will truly be missed forever, but I know your angels are awaiting to welcome you to your eternal peace. My Addis visits will not be the same without you to great me with flower or to make me genfo.
May your children, friends and family find counsel knowing that you lived a kind, compassionate and above all God loving life.
May your loving and caring soul sleep in Heaven forever!
Love you and will miss you tremendously."

"You’re my one and only mom
I’ll always have a special place in my heart for you
I’m so proud to be your kid
Right from the start, you were the one who nurtured me
Prayed over me
Worried about me
Guided me and supported me in every pursuit
Thank you for being there every day with just the love I needed
Emaye, although we are apart
Your spirit lives within me
Forever in my heart
"My dear Elfuye,
I love you so much and already miss you. I have told you this so many times but I want to say it again, I LOVE YOU. You have provided for all my needs and supported me throughout my life.
It was agonizing to see you in pain this past year. I also thank God for giving me the opportunity to care for you. The grief would have been unbearable have I not had the opportunity to care for you.
Thank you for being my rock!
Love you so much.
