Remembering you this would have been your birthday turning 50 years. Continue resting in peace
Posted by Angie Naserian on May 25, 2019
I thought of you today but that is nothing new, I thought about you yesterday and will tomorrow too. I think of you in silence and make no outward show. For what it meant to lose you only those who love you know. Remembering you is easy because I see you in the eyes of our children ( Meikan and Meris), we miss you soo much. In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill. I hope you are living well in the world of the creator.

This phase is just too tough. For a couple of reasons am sure you’d be the one I’d talk to about it without judgment. What I wish for may be next to impossible but I really wish you were still around.
Its a whole new life to me. I was too used to being away that I didn’t realize the much I was missing out just physically being around family. It hurt, and still does that we didn’t see each other as much as I wish we had.
I get it now that being a man doesn’t come with life manual on a silver plate. I always hoped for that constant counsel but your depart is forcing this, once a little boy, to see life for what it is…an experiment with unknown result. Just hope as a motivational force to forge ahead.
I know nothing about keeping up with that hustle, to be a figure looked upon by loved ones, to build a base strong enough to sustain my desired future, to know when you fate brings a soul mate along the way. I know nothing. And what all this brings is nothing but fear. A phobia that haunts me day and night. A phobia of disappointment, a phobia of wrongful acts in defense of self growth,a phobia of ending up alone rather than getting attached to the wrong company as well as a not-meant-to-be relationship.
My thoughts of you carry with them tears, both of joy and sorrow. I really want them to flow but the world works in a way that that these tears bring senses of within grief over and over again.
I guess though, answers to the questions I wish you’d be the one to answer, will come to me down the road. A belief in me is that you are constantly in watch. And so I will be waiting. Waiting for way forward to be revealed. Waiting for a sign that you still walk with me. Waiting for any opportunity to make you proud. Waiting for a way you’d reach out and tell me that you still remember the conversations and the good times we shared, because I still do.
I miss you.

Its not easy admitting. Neither is it easy accepting. A dream that doesn't end it is. No justification caters enough for all we are feeling. Hurt, pain, sorrow...grief covers it all.
Another last chance to say goodbye would be more than a pleasure. Another last chance for that rib-cracking sentiment that always painted a vivid picture to lighten the mood. Another last chance to hear you say its all going to be alright even in the worst of time. Another last chance to hear you hum to a song not so familiar to many. Another last chance to see you portray a kind act with no expectation back.
Its been afew days since we walked with you to your resting place. By the day we feel the empty void. By the hour we feel that missing portion that made us complete. We are trying to come to terms that your purpose in life must have been accomplished; that a subtle reason for it all must be behind all that happened.
All in all, you gave us will to go through the good and bad times with zeal and hope. You gave us encouragement to give a shot at conquering fears, taking risks and learning from their end result rather than playing it safe. A good reminisce of the goods times that went along with the bad yet you managed to guide us in seeing only the positive. Never before had we had such humor filling our presence; a story well cooked, along went with it, a meal perfectly cooked.
You taught us of the significant acts that makes life, life. Being kind even to the strangest of people, forgiving even if the same wouldn't be reciprocated, laughing out loud in the presence of family, friends; even foes. Loving With completeness. You understood it all. You lived it all. You gave it your all.
As you take your rest, you leave behind the qualities that we should strive to learn and personate. We are thankful for the moments we shared.
More than a father, more than a mentor, more than a friend. You will be more than missed Anko. Till we meet again in God's time; all our love.

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the lord.

Words can not express how i feel after your demise.
Lon you were more than a true friend actually a father figure to me and a God father to my little son Curtis who adored you so much you had to give him your bracelet since he always admired it whenever you came visting and held him and most of all the goat you slaughtered for him on his 1st Birthday last month.
Ofcourse i do miss the great times we shared together as families and as friends when we would rise very early in the mornings to go watch the kcb rallies,quatro charge whenever they took place.
Now that you are gone its so sad beacuse it will be hard to fill the gap you have left when it comes to Composing a terminology you used reffering to a Bbq and tu sticks and ka breadiste (money).
Though you gone,Brian and i we will be Composing with or without enough tu sticks or ka breadiste to keep your Legacy going on and on and on....
R.I.P my Brotha!!!

This is a tribute by Lawrence Lein
"Lon , your untimely death was and is a shocker to me, my last memory with you dates back to saturday the 9th in Namanga. Though physically gone your memories will leave forever, your smile and joyfull stories you told in a unique way will be greatly missed by us.
Rest in peace dear cousin"

Lon was a free spirit who never held a grudge. He shared what he had and loved to hop from place to place. My fondest memory of him was going to the Mara in the middle of the night, he knew the guys at the gate or knew someone who knew someone and we got in past midnight. We had to then wake up at 5 and he drove like hounds were on our heels to get to the hot air balloon which ended up being the best time I've had at the Mara. Lon you shall truely be missed. Rest in peace Shemeji!
