Rest in Peace Samedi. You were truelly a success man if I can paraphrase Robert Stevenson's poem;
You lived well, laughed often and loved much; you gained respect of intelligent men and the love of children; you filled your niche and accomplished your task; you have left a world better than you found it with your smile and you never lacked appreciation of the earth's beauty.

Rest in eternal peace Mr. Fighur . So shocking having gotten the sad news.Over and over, i gain the more understanding that within the earth nowhere and nothing is fair at all.The little pieces and bundles of happiness and joy we have got at present are sadly surpassed with bitterness in time.May the ever living God be the source of comfort and inspiration to Mr. Kania's family.Blessings

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Jeanette and the children, and the entire Kania family at this difficult time. I remember last summer, although our families were meeting for the first time, one couldn't help but notice Fighur's natural warmth and grace with which he received us. May God strengthen and comfort y'all.

The loss of a loved one turns our life upside down. Our world as we knew it has changed and those changes require that we in turn adjust to a new "normal." RIP Samedi.

The sting of death was been removed by christ, and only the shadow of it remains. The shadow of a dog can't bite; the shadow of a sword can't kill. Death has no power only its shadow we are seeing at this moment. RIP Brother Samedi, will see you in the resurrection morning by the city of glass. Jeanette, Kids, the Kanias, the Boit's..God's peace, courage and clarity of mind be in you.

Death comes to the ungodly man as a penal infliction, but to the righteous as a summons to his Father's palace. Death to the saint is the end of terrors, the commencement of glory. RIP Samedi,  we will see you in that resurrection morning by the city of glass. Jeanette and Kids, God give you courage and peace. Death has no sting, but a shadow is what we are seeing now.1Corith 15:55

Samedi, in the 48 years you lived in this world you touched so many people in a positive way and the memories of our interactions with you will last forever. In my mind, a gentle giant has rested.
