"Rest in peace..dearly missed"

This tribute was added by Jaylex Hiuhu on 1st July 2017

"Years have passed but you still linger in my thoughts. You were one of a kind and I will forever hold you close. A brother, a counselor and a friend at all times. I still think it’s a dream, that I’ll wake up one day and meet with you smiling like you always did. Gone too soon is a thought haunting the minds of many, but with peace in our hearts, we know that you did all you could to spread love among family and friends. So many call you brother, father and son though you weren’t’ related by blood. Your caring nature made you a gentleman of honor, integrity and merit. It was always easy to speak to you because you were so warm and welcoming. I miss you Mike “Smart” Githaiga… Till we meet again, till we meet again... Rest in peace…"

"Mike, your smile was your signature. Listening to all, that you accomplished in those few years I am challenged . From your FB page God was preparing you departure from Aug 2013. We will not murmur

He Leadeth me,blessed Lord whatever I do wherever I go the Lord's hand leadeth me.

By his own hand he leadeth me,his faithful follower I would be,for by his hand he leadeth me.

Sometimes amidst the deepest gloom,where the world troubles ware me out,the Lord stills the waters in the troubled seas. Still his Hand leadeth me.

Lord I do place my hand in thy hands,never to murmur content with the Lord's doing.

Since it is my God who leadeth me

And when my task on earth is done,when by the grace the victory's won.

When death cold wave I will not flee,through the Valley of death he Leadeth me

Remember when we would run from Hurligham because our offices neighbored each other to catch up with classes at Thika road, this are moments I will hold onto, the fun, laughter and treasured class times are valued. When I did not like my performance in an exam you offered me a make up. and ensured that I passed. You always said life is not too serious and that we can all make it. Your zeal, humor and passion for service is beyond measure. I will dearly miss you RIP."
