My tribute: This is a post that is difficult to write… Recently, my beloved grandmother passed away on 29 th March 2021 of a short illness and we will miss her terribly. She was one unique and special lady and the loss of her is felt deeply by many, even though she lived a full life. 

The love of Shosh was unique. God must have given grandmothers to us to liven up our lives, to make our lives more complete, to make us well rounded and better human beings. She played a big part in my childhood and youth and I can remember so many places I have had wilderness camping experience with her as PATHFINDERS and at times I could find myself sitting beside her as she prepare the dishes for the young campers, she prepare with special love. She taught me a lot about love and the meaning of family. She has never been just ‘my grandmother’, but my inspiration, my friend, my companion, my guide and my guardian.

Still, we can’t believe our lovely Grandma is gone. We will miss our Grandmother, but her spirit and strength, lives on in each of us and in the lives that she touched; all those who have been touched by the love, strength, conviction, wisdom, and beauty of her soul.

Shosh! – You truly were a unique, special woman! You may have passed on, but our only blessed hope is that, in that beautiful morning, when Jesus raises up the righteous, you'll be amongst the number and we shall forever rejoice. Amen! Fare thee well.....

Sometimes life presents us with very sad moments. Like the death of our beloved ones. We mourn for each one of those who leave us. This particular loss of Aunt is very painful one to me.. She brought me up as part of her children, indeed I called her “mathe”. She has done so much that I can’t describe here, but most importantly she led me to know God. She taught me virtues of life, I proudly say I am what I am because of her. Forever I will cherish what you taught me. Till we meet again at the trumpet call….. Sincere condolences to my cousins, Margaret, Josephine, Ruth and Tony.
