"Behold , I show you a mystery, We shall not sleep , but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound , and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality
O death , where is thy sting ? O grave, where is thy victory.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ
We shall meet again Dekemi, in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ where death would no longer be able to tear us apart
Rest in peace my dearest sister Dekemi"

"My lovely sister. A friend, comforter. You never cease to put smiles on my face. Your departure has created a void in our lives. I am definitely sure you can see us all. How we miss your cheekiness, your colourfulness, your laughter, your bubbliness, your boldness and your proverbs.

You are resting till we meet again in heaven. I miss you."

"My dear sister.   Love you dearly. Miss you loads. I hear you, but I can't see you.  I know you are well , in a lovely place, resting and smiling.

It's hard to think that will not see you again till we meet at the feet of Jesus.   Your passing has brought more meaning to life.  I see life clearer, just not with you around.
I speak like you are there.  Yes I know, not physically. But in spirit .... that warms my heart. But I rather you were there physically.

Touching your face last week. Tears could not stop flowing.  I miss you so much.  It hurts, deeper when I know that it's for a long  time.....God knows.
Miss you.   "B ii mm boo" you call me.  Can't forget.  
Rest in peace - Sister Dekemi."

It's strange how life just seems to carry on despite your passing. I wonder what I expected....a stand still!! You passing was a big blow to me and I still reel from the effects . Jesus birth something new in me the day you died...... To truly appreciate the relationships he blessed us with. I miss you so much 'Dekemi but I continually take consolation in that you are in a better place and state.
Sun re 'Dekemi"
