"I am very sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Joyce Wambui Githitu.I don't know her personally,but from reading you comments she seems to have so much love and support around her.she will be greatly missed. The Bible offers much comfort in times like example of comfort is found at (John 5:28,29) ' Do not be amazed at this,for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tomb will here his voice and come out, those who did good to a resurrection of life...'. This scripture shows that God want to bring back those who we have lost,and when he brings them back to us ,they will be free of sickness and pain of any kind. May you all continue to hold the precious memories of your dearly beloved Joyce and know that she is held in gods memory and very soon we will see the ones we lost in death again.""

"Sweet smile on your face as you sleep the pain away,
Resting in God's arms now, although in the ground your body lay.
He needed another angel in the Heavenly choir and that's why you had to go.
As you promised, you are still with us watching your children here below.
I never would have imagined the end would be like this, me comforting you.
Holding your hand, telling you not to worry was not an easy thing for me to do.
And even in your weakest hour you tried to comfort me too,
Caressing my face, and calming my soul as only a mother can soothe.
You have always been there through the thick and the thin
No matter what I've done, unconditionally your love never wavering.
When I told you of the mistakes I made and all the times people saw me fall
You simply nodded and gently replied 'so have we all'.
The key to success is learning from the past
Ensuring a brighter future is now the present task.
A pillar of strength even until the end
Fighting all life's battles, knowing it triumphantly you would win
Pushing me to be the best that you know I can be
Reminding me to keep the faith and allow God to lead me.
Knowing it's through Christ that I can do all things
And as He never makes a mistake I will come through victoriously.
I miss you more than these words could ever say
The pain in my heart is from one unimaginable day
After I cried all that I could; my eyes still shed countless more tears
And when I try to sleep, I have nightmares of ten-thousand fears
I walk in footsteps on an unsure path
My load feels so heavy I am not sure I will last.
Silly though I may be, I am afraid of life now that you're gone
Because I've always had a mother.
And Mommy, what about my sisters and baby brothers .
I wish you could have stayed just a little while longer, there's so much left to do
I wonder if I prayed hard enough and if so, did they get through.
Finding relief in knowing I will see you again someday soon
Remembering all you taught me as my soul I continue to groom
I will walk in footsteps you have walked before me
Seeing the path you walked lead you, Mommy, straight into victory.
So as you sleep Mommy, in the cradle of the Lord,
I am reassured of God's promises in His Holy Word.
I dream of the day when Heaven's gates open to receive me
And with your smiling face and loving eyes, reunited once again I will be.

rest in peace my Godmother"

When Allah created you,  He made you a custodian of the gifts He bestowed upon you which were, family, love, kindness, humility, wealth and generosity amongst many others but most importantly He blessed you with the ultimate prize of receiving and serving Him.
I will remember you for the person that you were. You had character, spoke with humility, gave sound advice and always had a listening ear and a beautiful smile.
Your candle will never dimmer because you will always be remembered by those who held you dear until we meet again.

"Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return""
