"Dear Mom,
You know what; I honestly think that I should call you mummy/mommy at his point. I know you are wondering why but it all adds up to one word, a person that I’ve grown to know for the past six years of my life. So many years ago you gave birth to this hard headed, introverted, funny, shy, kind, selfless, annoying, sweet, human being that I call a friend – PETER!!!. He is a beautiful human being, and anything beautiful comes from something VERY BEAUTIFUL….YOU!
Don’t worry we are watching over him for you, he is in good hands.
Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

It was a great privilege and honor to know Aunt Lorna, your Mom.  She was one of the kindest, compassionate and graceful person I have encountered.  Every time I spoke with her she always reminded me of the Creators’ Great Love for all of us.  Her journey on this physical realm may be no more, however, our fond memories of her will continue infinitely.  She will be greatly missed.  May her Spirit rest in eternal peace."

"Mrs. Wandera was my second Mom while at Loreto Convent Msongari, NBI.  My family lived in Ethiopia in the 70s so it was not always easy for me to go home during half terms and exiasts.  She and Mr. Wandera welcomed me into their home like a daughter.  I learned so much about Kenyan life outside of the Convent from them, learned to appreciate their national cuisines and their culture and absolutely enjoyed being with all the Wandera family - Caroline, I'd like to thank you profusely for allowing me that experience also.  You are all indeed my family from another mother and father and I will always relish in the fact that you all look at me that way.  May God uphold you all during this time of darkness, but remember, your Mom is not gone, she's just away waiting for the day that you will all be reunited.  May she RIEP and may God embrace her in His loving arms until then.  I love you all!"
