It has been six years since you left to be in a better place. I miss your hearty laughter, positive outlook on life despite the odds and how you were able to get on with everyone regardless of rank. Wish you were here to witness milestones in our lives. Rest well....kooma thaayu!

69 is a good year. You would be one year shy of 70 this year. I am glad that you are in better place two years on. Earth isn't all that it's cut out to be. We will live and meet you some day. I know your soul and spirit are alive and strong. The best we can do for now here is nurture our temporary bodies until we transition to the next realm some day. Keep well, God bless:-)

Dear Papa,
A year has passed as we still get used to your absence,
It Has been severely confusing,
For we all loved you and still do in our own different ways.
I can only hope you are in a better place...peace and comfort
being your everyday dose...
Look out for us...watch over us...
As your candle shines down here on earth, through your children
Your mottos shall live through and through:
"You must love yourself before you love others"
"Never fear anybody!!"

There is no putting into words what I feel...
Except the hope of your lasting, peaceful presence

Your loving daughter,
Nyambura Wamunyu

Dear Papa,

You fought the good fight. I hoped and wished you would win the battle even for a longer time...long enough to say goodbye. You left with quiet strength even though hope was high for you. It was time. There is a time for everything. See you in the present and future realm. All is well down here, rest well up there. I will visit the globe and see it for us with my four eyes:-)

Love,
Wambui Wamunyu.

75

75 would have been your age today:):):)

Thank you for the birthdays we celebrated in my formative years, they are memories I hold onto when we were younger, healthier and full of hope for the future. There was one where we took pictures like there was no tomorrow in 1996 when I was 10. It was so exciting to come from outside after playing with the kids from the estate and just singing to the birthday song while riding the blue BMX bike... iykyk:D... It was that era of who could ride the fastest and do stunts... Fun times:)

Happy birthday papa!!!

To the Uncle that Left Footprints in Our Hearts...

Dear Uncle Wamunyu:
Happy birthday to my fellow Capricorn!
I last saw you in person in 2004 when I came back to Kenya for my research project. It's not until I was in your presence again that I realized just how much I'd missed you-- your intellect, humor, laughter, wise counsel, calm demeanor, and kindness.  
It's funny-- my memories of speaking on the phone with (specifically) Uncle Phillip and Uncle Wanyagi share one thing in common with you-- you all sound like my dad (tone and laughter). I know when I'm speaking with Uncles Kuria and John, but you and the previously mentioned Uncles were a bit of a doozy when using a landline with no caller ID, lol!
When I answered the phone and said, "Hello?" You'd all say my name the same way: "Nyambura!" 
#Confusing
I'd never know who it was. So I'd ask, "Father?" 
And after chuckling, you'd say, "Well, it's not Father! It's your Uncle Wamunyu!"
These surprise calls meant everything to a college/graduate student who was far away from home and grateful for the familiar voices of family members.
Of many things, I miss your scholarly feedback on everything my sisters (Wambui and Muthoni Kamau) and I shared with you. Your unique perspective on all things nourished our respective personal and professional growth. You challenged our way of thinking and encouraged us to keep aiming higher, particularly where academic learning is concerned.  
You had a nuanced approach to dealing with life adversities, something my dad deeply admired in you, in addition to your genuine kindness. Despite your challenges, you had a remarkable ability to approach life with an open mind, discerning spirit, firm values/principles, and a gentle soul.
Until we meet again, rest in peace with God and all His angels. 
Love, Nyambura Kamau (Linda Githiora-Olweny)

Dearest Uncle Wamunyu
