My dear friend and partner, last year was full of challenges, but we do appreciate that God has brought us this far. Ther were some very exciting moments that I need to update you .... Baraka turned 18 and was finally able to get his legal drivers license ❤️.
Baraka turned 18 years and is legally and adult. We managed to squeeze in a getaway with his friend to celebrate this special moment. And we missed you in all these...

Rest in peace!

My best friend, today I celebrate 50 +1 without you. The thought of you not being here to celebrate with us hurts. We will make the best out of if it. This morning was beautiful and a good day to go enjoy nature as you would always encourage us, so i did that... then went out to cafe latte for breakfast and grabbed the same old Cake which we will indulge later.
I miss you dearly and will always love you!

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!!!

Miss you and love you dada!!!❤️

Until another Day....Love you and miss you lots my beloved ...

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

Dear dada, our little girl Tamnai has grown up to be a beautiful women- 16 years ago today we brought her into this world. And today she has to celebrate her 16th birthday without you. I miss having you around to put all the pieces together to give her a beautiful surprise birthday present - tha you hand made.
She will be taking her drivers test on Friday and soon will be behind the wheel alone - what I missed opportunity that you did not get to teach her how to drive, we went through a lot of challenges, but she is now a good driver !
Just a note to tell you how we are fairing and how much we miss you.
Love you dada aways

Neema too got an admission to Hillcrest Academy and she goes to school tomorrow. she gets to get a taste of what boarding school is like. We have been praying about it and she is looking forward to having such a wonderful experience in her new school.

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.
