Its another year gone by, two years has gone by so fast and sometime I cannot phathom how all this happened. In the one year there has been a lot that has happened. The kids have grown, Neema is taller than me now and Baraka is catching up very fast. they both still play soccer the sport that you taught them well. Baraka changed teams this year and will play for MTA Neema is still waiting figure out where she plays. there are couple decisions that I have had to make myself and it has bee very difficult I always myself what you would have wanted us to do......but as life would make it... we have to make the best guess and journey on.
We spent the afternoon with you and laid some beautiful flowers, this is the closest we come to spending time with you. No more goofing around............
I miss you my dear all the time ....we are lonely and alone most of the time and that hurts so much
please continue to watch over us until we meet again
love you always

REMEMBERING my late dear friend and brother in Christ, FIGHUR SAMEDI KANIA. A dear friend and brother who and I share a profound philosophy of men without borders, men who are lost in every culture of the world for the sake of the Gospel of Christ. 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!

Hi Jeanette,
I was just thinking of you and your family and praying that God will continue to uphold you and stand by you. I hope that you and the children are fairing on as well as you can and I hope that you've been able to laugh and smile again despite your loss. I only met and knew Samedi for a short instant but he was one of those guys that leave a lasting impression, and I was very shocked and saddened by his demise. Take comfort in knowing that he is in a much better place away from all affliction. God bless you and your family.

Sam's untimely loss has been hard and one can not comprehend the sadness his wife, his young kids, other loving family members and friends are going through. I cared for Sam as a nurse once during one of his hospital visit and I got to know him as a fellow African with shared dreams of bettering our communities back home and be there for our kids. Let us keep his dream alive!
Posted by Ada Ogot-Siage on February 1, 2014
Dear Jeanette, Neema and Baraka, May our gracious God continue to hug you close as you deal with this tremendous loss of your beloved Samedi. May He constantly whisper words of hope to carry you through the low moments. May we all look forward in hope for that glorious day when death shall be no more! No more night, no more pain, no more tears, never crying again. Lots of Love and Deepest Sympathy, Ada, Dan, Adan and Dylan Siage

As I now come into terms with my cousin brother's death, I still have the pain of losing Samedi. He was more than a cousin to me and it is quite difficult for me to accept than Samedi is not with us anymore. I recall our primary days at Kapso when we could go to their home for lunch and even spend some days at their home. I even remember how our teacher used to make fun of us in class cause we were classmates. Oh my, what a tragedy! I have alot to say about Samedi but let me stop cause now it won't change what has happened. But I will miss him dearly. God bless and care for the family always.
Posted by Emmy Mit on November 18, 2013
RIP Samedi ...So sorry you had to endure the pain of a cruel disease and the sorrow of departing sooner than we had all hoped ...your family and friends are safe in Gods hands...Rest with the angels are loved and never forgoten
Posted by Esly Kania on September 18, 2013
I will always miss you so much my dear brother. I will cherish your legacy forever and the positive impact you instilled in my life since childhood. Witnessing your three year courageous daily fight with cancer will forever linger in my mind. Hopefully we will meet again soon when Jesus comes back as promised. May God's blessings be upon your family (Baraka, Neema and wife Jeanette).

You're truly missed bro! Can't come to terms with your passing. Painful as it can be. We prayed but God's plan took precedence for His will to be done. In our brotherly conversation, we believe God always has a plan. Yes He did and that was that you take your flight and rest for a while beneath till that great getting up morning. Love U always!!! May God bless and keep your family....Amen!
