I made it there as I had hoped, I mean at Neema's graduation on 5/31/2019. I knew you would have loved for me to have been there so I did. I am proud to see the kids grow. Neema is doing well and as she walked up to receive her diploma I couldn't hold back the tears for several reasons, and one of those having to do with you not being here. I pray that God will help us remain strong till we all meet someday when Christ comes. Baraka is growing up very fast into the man you always wanted him to be. He's respectfully listening to counsels and would by God's grace live up to your expectations. I am indeed proud of him as well. Mama Neema, my sister Jeanette is remains resolute and is a mother of great worth following you guys' plan in raising the kids and maintaining the family. May God Almighty continue to bless and keep your family in His loving care as we all look forward to the soon return of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. I REALLY MISSED YOU, MY FRIEND AND BROTHER!!! The work in the Lord's Vineyard continues as requested and by His grace I WILL NOT GIVE UP!!!

Today's the anniversary of the day that I lost you, And for a time it felt as though my life had ended too. But loss has taught me many things And now I face each day With hope and happy memories To help me on my way. And though I'm full of sadness that you're no longer here Your influence still guides me and I still feel you near. What we shared will never die It lives within my heart, Bringing strength and comfort While we are apart. I look forward to that day when we shall see each other again I love you

Hello Neema and Jeanette! We are so excited to have Neema to join Hillcrest next year! I want to introduce myself, I am Kendra Grothmann. I'm working in the admissions and enrollment offices with Wayne Stender. I will be your contact if you have any questions. Included in this email are important dates as we near the beginning of school as well as class schedule options. Before I can set up a class schedule, I need a few things, including a record of Neema's immunizations, enrollment paperwork which will be sent via docusign, and a comprehensive physical exam (attached). I do still need to receive her official transcript from his old school. If the school could mail it directly to us, that would be perfect. Again, we are so excited to have Neema at Hillcrest.

REMEMBERING my late dear friend and brother in Christ, FIGHUR SAMEDI KANIA.

This I am and will forever be for greater is the reward when Christ comes. RIP my friend! Look forward to a great reunion. There's a lot we don't seem to understand but before our faces it shall be laid out someday. Blessings upon your family and may God put His protective shield around them that they may acquire all the blessings from above you hoped for. REST IN CHRIST BRO!
