|Let the memory of keren be with us forever|
"Kwase kyundu, you would have turned 54 today. We remember and celebrate you the best way we can. May HE continue to keep you in the palm of his hands. Ka mo, Pendaityo"
"May your light continue to shine. The memory lives on in our hearts truly fulfilling the Lords's promise: "Anyone who lives and believes in me will never die." A prayer was offered for the continued repose of your soul. Rest in peace forever. Amen."
Alas, the passage of time has matured the memory without dulling it. Your impact on all that you touched stands out more starkly now that you are not physically here. Your memory abides in our hearts and with us, always and forever!"
"It's already three years gone since, but the memory is as fresh as yesterday. Those we love don't go away, they live on in the minds and hearts of those they left behind. They walk beside us every day, Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear. Requiescas in Pace."
"Dear Auntie Keren
I thought so hard about you this Christmas, Not about your passing, more so about. Ityesen yeou, cooking, chatting. and I smiled and it turned to tears. I do trully miss you. writing this makes me sad. Its been years and now i feel loss. Ka ulum sha shima alot. We will see again soon. Xoxo Doose"
"Igyor Yam i Tamen,
It's like yesterday, when we talked and joked and laughed our tails off. God know why you were chosen to be at peace while the rest of us toil and trouble on this earth full of ills and wicked ones. Until we see yonder. Lum dedoo.
It's been four long years since your left us. In our hearts your memories are just as fresh. Your kindness, thoughtfulness and innate goodness are things we will always remember with joy and gratitude to God whether four years have elapsed or forty. Sleep in peace until we meet again."
"Keren, three years just gone like that! But you are forever in our thoughts. The outpouring of love and good wishes prove one thing. That in deed, you were a true child of God and lived well with your fellow human beings. May your reward be great in heaven. Continue to rest in peace."
"Keren, your memory will never fade in our hearts. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord.----John Andza"
"Dear Sister Keren:
You went on to Heaven to wait for us, but know that you are never forgotten. We will forever remember you because you were a sister with integrity, purpose and, indeed, unlimited love for all of us. Brother Agber Dimah, your dear widow, has teamed up with us in brotherly love and purpose to honor your memory. You are, indeed, forever remembered in our hearts, minds and hearts. May God Almighty keep you until we meet again in his Kingdom, Amen!
From Brother A.B., Sister Yvette and our two teenage sons (Kwadwo and Livingston) in Eugene, Oregon, USA."
"Continue to rest in the bosom of the lord
We miss you so much!"
"Still in our thoughts :)
It's being three years but the memories are as fresh today as they were then and as they will be for as long as God keeps us here. Stay well until we meet again to part no more.
"Three years have gone passed so soon, yet it seems like it happened just yesterday. Keren, continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord..John Andza"
"Although time may pass so quickly in life so distracting–the memories of the wonderful times you shared with us will never fade. Keren, your kind and gentle soul, your generous spirit and contagious smiles will forever remain a golden treasure in our hearts. Even as we continue to miss you daily, we are comforted by knowing that you are in the care of Angels in Heaven. Rest in peace."
"We remember you today as always as we continue to place our trust in God for strength to bear your loss. May the good Lord grant you eternal rest.
"We pause, light candles and celebrate your birthday on earth while the angels surround you with merrymaking and a lavish feast in the heavens!
"Dear Auntie Keren
out time has passed. There is consolation in the Lord, yange igen we will all be together. I hope your good nature and and compassion follows with you. Rest in the Lord aunty
"My Dear Keren, We again remember your life and the wonderful memories of your time and work with us. God’s grace gave you to us and His grace grants you eternal rest. Taken from us your friends, your children, and your dear husband our friend Igbam Dimah and the entire family at a time we least expected. Comforted by the fact that your time with us was fruitful, fulfilling and memorable."
"To remember Keren is to deeply meditate on how short life is, and the need to live it fully, to express love to others, to eschew the limiting propensity to be selfish and to collect meaningless material possessions that clutter around us. The faith in God gives us everlasting joy that stretches from eternity to eternity. Keren with Christ and with us, your immortal soul shines. I. Hagher"
"May the Almighty have mercy on our beloved sister. May He continue to grant all the loved ones she left behind the fortitude to withstand her loss. Amen. Chief, may the peace and blessings of the Almighty be upon you all!"
"Keren, if we can remember you, you will be with us ALWAYS!
While we miss you here on earth, we know heaven gained an angel.
"I wish Aunty Keren was with us. Aunty Keren was a VERY NICE person, may her soul rest in peace. I always loved Aunty Keren she was so giving and thankful she was a thoughtful person. R.I.P I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!
With so much love, Amanda"
"Keren, I met you briefly via email through my friendship with Philip Aka. I wish we would have had the opportunity to meet in person and work on the project we discussed. God had better plans for you. I wish your husband and your sons peace of mind, Lucinda"
I trust that the Almighty, has out of His abundant grace, granted you a lofty place in paradise. I believe He will continue to grant us the fortitude to withstand your loss. Do, therefore, rest in perfect peace."
"My dear friend, Keren
You left us just before we could celebrate your 50th birthday, the golden jubilee celebration of your birth, but God knows best. I left some golden colored rose flowers at your resting place, because It was your birthday yesterday. May God continue to grant you a peaceful rest in Jesus name! Amen!! - Ellie Aka"
"My Pat's light shine in the heart of her children and her loving husband forever."
"It is very difficult to accept the fact that you are no longer here with us. You will always have a very special place in our hearts. It is with a great deal of admiration and love that we remember your birthday. The James gang of Kalamazoo, Michigan and Clarion, Pennsylvania remember you with a great deal of tenderness. Peace and love always."
We will NEVER forget. You were special and will continue to be special to us. Our thoughts will always be with you. Gone too soon but always with us.
We will not forget your birthday just because you are not here physically to blow out your candle. We will not forget this year or the next or the next. For the memories you left are too memorable, your impact too great. I know you are smiling down on us from above in your restful peace. Happy Birthday! Aondover"
"Dear Sister Keren: You are in Heaven with our Heavenly Father, where there is neither pain nor misery. Yet, our family and I are praying for you on your 50th birthday. Know that we will forver remember you with love and appreciation. In your temporary absence, we extend our family's love to Brother Dimah and the children you left. God bless! ."
"Ingyor yam i dedoo,
I just wish to say Happy Birthday. Memories of you have remained fresh in our hearts and minds for a good reason . . . you implanted them there by how you lived among us. "Ankiki""
"I wish I had known her better. I count myself fortunate to have met her, and pray that Agber and children can feel her presence!"
"As you celebrate your special day with the angels in heaven today, we pause to remember.
"Happy birthday Aunty Keren, we akera lu avese ga kpa ungu se ki shima tso...lu dedoo <3"
"Dear auntie Keren, this memorial I was home with the baby, mza uza tesen ngom wan. Your memory is still very warm to my heart. stay blessed!"
"Keren, Aondo Ter a ver uma wou ken bem.A na orya wou man mbayev ishima i taver sha er ve za hemen a uuma vev cii."
"Auntie, it seems like just yesterday, but a year has passed when you left this sinful world. We miss you so much, and will always remember you. We know u're in heaven watching down on us, and we'l meet again someday."
"One year later, the void you have created is still very much felt. Your shoes are too big to fill. On this one year anniversary of your call to glory, your family and friends remember. May your light continue to shine bright won u kwase. Saa later....Pendaityo (on behalf of the Ugbahbunch)"
"I still cannot bear to see the picture of Keren and believe that she is gone forever. When I see her picture on this website, it feels like I just saw her yesterday in Pullman Washington. My heart goes out painfully for my dear friend, Agber. I wish I could recount some of my observations of her dedication as a wife and companion for my friend. But the story will be too long for this space"
"He is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them Hebrews 7:25 Because He (Jesus) lives you (Keren) will also live Jn14:19.
From "Daily Strength" ... 'that through encouragement of Scriptures, we might have hope.' Romans 15:4."
"Dear Sister Keren:
Our family believes firmly that you are in Heaven with the good Lord waiting for us. know that Brother Dimah has honored your memory in varied ways, including sharing with all of us great information about your life and your home-going event a year ago. In tears, we remember you"
"PAT as I fondly remembers you, I miss you so much. May your soul rest in peace. I know you are in heaven with our Lord, resting. You will be in hearts forever."
happy birthday,sometimes it feels just like O you are just around the corner but I think in Gods way; you are very much here with us in spirit. nahan yo doo...warmest memories. xx"
You would have marked your 49th birthday today, but God had other plans. May your light continue to shine bright and bring cheer to all who knew you. -Pendaityo"
"Our dear Sister Keren:
About a year ago you left us in tears for Heaven. As mortal human beings, we did not understand that, like Jesus Christ, you were going to Heaven to prepare a place for us. Happy and blessed bithday. A.B. & Yvette Assensoh."
"Keren Dimah Aboho,
U nyor tsuaa je lan shima! Kpa yav kundu kundu, saa se va --Sachia."
"I remember Keren and considered her to be a dream come true for any man that was really family oriented. I was always happy for Agber my friend in Pullman where we studied together. I remember Keren as an examplar of dedication and deserving of a husband's love and respect."
"My Dear Keren,
A wonderful person, welcoming, accepting, loving and generous. Qualities that defined you and your lovely family. A bright light that will shine to eternity.
The rock on which Igbam Dimah built his house. Too young to leave us, and too soon. My you rest in perfect peace in God’s presence. Mngohol Chile"
"Even though I never met Keren, everything I have heard about her, especially from my big sister- Stevina, tells the story of a phenomenal lady. My heart goes out to her beloved family and friends who miss her sorely. I pray the Lord grants all that mourn the fortitude to bear such a heartbreaking loss."
"I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Keren Dimah. Keren was a bright, kind and highly respected woman. She was a great co-worker. My thoughts are with her family during this difficult time.
Please accept my sincere condolences."
"Though I never met you in person, I have been touched by the good things said about you. There is truth in the saying that good things do not last. May your family take solace in the fact that you are with the LORD, and may you rest forver in His bosom."
"Death is cruel. It laid its icy finger on Keren. Yet, we are comforted in knowing that she is in a better place, where there is no pain, sorrow, and where death is swallowed up in victory. May the Almighty God give your family the fortitude to bear your untimely departure to eternity."
"Keren, you will always be remebered for your kindness and your gentle spirit. I am grateful for the friendship and support I received from you and Agber in Pullman, Washington. May the Lord grant you eternal rest in His kingdom."
"We will miss you and may God grant you internal peace forever. Till we meet again."
"Our dear Keren is gone, taken from this wicked world. Who am I to question God why He would take someone so loving and caring, who stood for justice and equity at such a tender age. Obviously, this world was not worthy of such a person so you took her Home. We mourn, not so much for Keren, but for ourselves for the void left in our hearts. You may be gone, but will never be forgotten."
"“Blessed are those that mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Keren was a delightful sister, peaceful as a Dove, with a kind and gentle soul. Dearest Keren, although we miss your lovely smile, your warm heart, and the inner glow with which you brighten our days, we understand that you are with the Lord now. May the Lord God grant you eternal rest."
"Teach us oh angel, teacher, mother, wife, sister and friend
How to live, love and face the end
Then shall we fear death no more
Death a mere doorway
Through which nobody passes alive
When we have lived and loved like you
Who cares about death?
We too shall pass this doorway
For nobody gets out of life alive"
"With the Lord, you face death's dark night, sealed with the Lord's victory sign, the cross. Soon, may the splendour of His light on you forever shine till we meet again to part no more. Rest in perfect peace."
"We will miss you Keren.
This online tributes site is a great way for our families and friends who are geographically scattered to share stories and memories, as well as keep connected while we moan Keren."
"Sun set at noon day! The Dimah's, may Almighty God shine forth His light in your lives. Be thou strong in the Lord and in the power of His resurrection. For indeed, in death, we live again. Fare thee well Keren."
"Keren, the Good Lord called you too soon; far too soon! But it is not for us mortals to question his decision. Your goodness, your smiles, your forthrightness and unbending desire for truth, your love for your husband and your children, these will stand as reminders forever of your time here with us. May God keep you in peace and comfort until we meet again, to part no more!"
"Madam Karen, We shall all join you some day, my your soul and all the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace."
"Our dear friend Keren, our hearts are filled with sadness of your sudden departure. As people with faith, we know you are in a better place. We will greatly miss that sweet little voice, smiling face even in pain and the great sense of humor. You were a role model. Adieu sis. Keren, may the Lord lead you safely to His bossom,and watch over the lovely family you left behind. R.I.P dear. Botangas"
"I really didn't know keren, but I know a friend of the family who was full of good words about her. My deepest sympathy to the family at this time of sorrow. I wish them God's love, and protection as they bear this heavy burden. May her good memories comfort and bring peace to all of you. Adieu Keren and rest in peace. From Ndidi"
"Gone too soon, a glorious call to rest for my dear friend Keren. Today and always I lit you a candle. You fought the fight, only God knows best, you have gone to meet Him. Your early departure will forever leave a void in all our hearts. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Though you walk through the valley of shadow of death fear thee not, His light will guide you home. Adieu - Ellie"
"Gone too soon, just very too soon, l was so shocked to hear of your death, all l did was cry, l did not believe it. You were a very kind person, may your soul rest in peace, you will always be remembered. Rest in peace my dearest friend."
"I wept like a little boy upon hearing of your departure from this world. It was just a few months ago that you and your husband, Agber, hosted me at your beautiful home. You were so gracious and displyed your usual hospitality even though you were not feeling well. The memory I have of you is that of a very sophisticated lady, mother and a dignified professional.I will miss you, Karen."
"Dear Auntie Keren....I know someday we will see again, and that alone is enough consolation to me. You were very kind to me, and I want you to remember that just as much as i celebrate and cherish all my memories with you. The little time I came to live with you, i learnt alot about life, love and partnership. I miss you and I wish I could rewind time. And have more time together. Za dedoo.xoxox"
"Every death diminishes the human family and the death of a good person such as Keren is a particularly devastating loss. May the almighty God and the gods of our ancestors give Agber and the children the fortitude to bear the loss. May Keren's soul rest in perfect peace."
"May Almighty God receive Sister Keren in His Kingdom to wait for all of us. Also, may the devoted family that she left behind -- including Brother Agber Dimah, her dear husband, mother back in Nigeria, her children as well as other family members and a host of friends -- be blessed and protected by the Almighty as well. With our most heart-felt condolences, the Assensohs of Indiana, USA."
"Some people come into our lives and, thereafter, we are never the same again. Ingyor yam i tamen, you stand tall among such persons in many people's eyes. Even as you seem to have left too soon, you left us better than you found us! THANK YOU. Za bem, bem shi Aondo A lu awe."
"Angbian u kwase Keren,
"Gone too soon" does not quite describe the void you have left in the Dimah family and your extended MUTA and TIVnet families. We all need you, but it appears Aondo needs you more. Za dedoo, -Pendaityo"
Have a suggestion for us?
