Telealeye, It has been one year and eight months. I am here with tears rolling down and I don't know why! I feel like I have been trying to keep you alive in every situation thinking of my perfect father on earth. I thought things will get better as the days go by. It is very hard not hearing your voice or knowing you are not here with us. Thank you for the great things you and Nanaye installed in us. THE LOVE OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER. If I did not know him, I don't know where I will be right now. GOD has been my joy in my sorrow, my shelter in my time of need, my strength to carry on, my hope for tomorrow. He has never let me down. HE IS MY EVERYTHING! We will see each other some day. Love koki

I can't believe it's been a year already since you left us Gash Telale. We know and feel your presence by the amazing children you left behind. They are as gracious, kind, giving, loving as you were. We miss you but your legacy and warmth continues to live on today!

The best thing I read since the passing of my dad is “Grief is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot. All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go." I miss you Telealiy!!!!

To the most amazing, loving, patient, kind, funny, full of life father anyone could ever ask for. I am so blessed to be your daughter and have you as my BEST FRIEND. You listened to me whenever I needed to talk and you had a way of making EVERYTHING BETTER! You were a friend to many no matter what age. I will miss you so much but i know you are in a better place. Selfishly, I want you here for one more day!!!!!! I love you so much Telealeye! Rest in peace. Your daughter Muna.

Dear Mama Edna, Koki, Sahalu, Tsega, and Muna, Our hearts are filled with sorrow to hear of Gashe Telale's home going . There are no sufficient words that can be uttered that can justifiably express our condolences . For those who knew Gashe Telale, they can say they are part of the privileged who got to see first hand what it means to be Christ-like by the life that Gashe lived. When I think of Gashe, I feel of sense of peace, because for as long as I have known him I never remember anything but peace and that wonderful smile and loving spirit he always greeted us all with and his attitude of peaceful resilience toward's life's challenges. I am grateful to God that He blessed all of you to be together to send Gashe to our Fathers arms so that you can be a source of strength and comfort to each other. I can't thank God enough that you all have your faith and relationship with God that is sufficient when your humanity overflows and He is there to catch, comfort and hold you. I am also grateful to God that He know our pain so well that He leaves us with loving, and comforting memories of Gashe to remind us he is always with us. The beauty of God is that he reminds us of our dearly departed by those around us and places and things that they enjoyed. This allows us to use these to strengthen us and help us remember they have colored and continue to color our lives. Please know that you are all dearly loved, prayed for and thought of everyday ! Continue to be strong in the Lord and be blessed ! Sending Our Love, TaAmir & Elise

Dear Tsega and Family....Our prayer is for you to experience God's perspective, comfort and peace at this challenging time. Although we didn't have the privilege of meeting your dad, we sense that so many of your strengths are due to his influence - your faith, your sensitivity, your incredible love and care for so many. We love you! Bill and Lisa Fairbanks

It is terrible to hear the passing of Telealiye, who was the very core foundation and one of the strongest pillars of our family. My family and I were fortunate enough to know Telealiye through his beloved daughters Koki and Muna who are our dearest friends. We first exchanged greetings and felicitations during the holiday time. When he came to visit his daughters and grandsons, we spent precious times together. We discussed on various social, moral, political, and religious issues. During those discussions he influenced us in many ways especially with his tenderness, tolerance and kindness. Also we came to realize his graciousness, politeness and compassion for fellow human beings has no limit. He lived an exemplary life, from raising his 4 magnificent children to helping needy people for a better future, and devoting his time and effort to mend various social problems. Missing someone very special like Telealiye brings tears to our eyes however, remembering all the good times we have spent with him brings smiles to our faces and a warm filling to our hearts. Due to all these and other factors we cannot say we are going to miss Telealiye at all, because his spirit, enlightening advices and encouragement will live with us in every moment of our lives. We will never forget you, Teleayile! Rest In Peace!! - Getachew & Family

The Bible says “a good name is more precious than fine rubies” As one thinks of Teleale and the life he lived we can be thankful that his name will be remembered for the different ways he impacted people's lives, the example he lived, the stories he told, the guidance he gave, and the deep love he shared for family and friends. We are thankful for the treasured memories that will forever enrich our lives because of him. We are comforted when Teleale returned to the God who created him, who loves him dearly – he completed his life’s work and was welcomed home by our loving Lord with the words – “Well done my good and Faithful servant” If there is a Christian Hall of Fame – Teleale certainly would be inducted because of his life, his godly example and because his priorities were centered around God’s heartbeat for living life. Our love and prayers are with his precious family.

Telealeye how we miss you. We are so blessed to have had a father who was an example of our Heavenly Father. Knowing you are with him is how we get our comfort. I miss your sweet voice and how you called me kokiye. Your stories, your advise, your love to your family, your funny ways.... I will miss everything about you. Rest in peace my wonderful father

It's never easy to say goodbye. Gashe Telale, our most beloved uncle who personified love, kindness, grace, and humility. Visiting home will not be the same. I will miss our chats and the feeling of warmth and acceptance that they gave me. May the incomprable goodness that you gave to all of us be a guiding light to your beautiful soul and console Eteye Edena, Tsega, Kokie, Sahilu, Muna and the rest of the family. I'll say farewell with all of my love and gratitude. (Mimi - Tsion Gad)

Telealeye, I write with tears rolling down. I can’t say I don’t know why because I know why - this is my good-bye for now. You were truly a kind person, gentle and understanding. You listened patiently and considerately. You tried to find solutions when I poured out my heart like a daughter. But I know now more because you won’t be there to hear. You left a great legacy to all that knew you – you really were one of a kind, a man above all men. Thank you for all you have been in my life since childhood - both you and Nanaye. THANK YOU!!! You will be remembered affectionately. Lea Kassa

We mourn your loss, may you eternally rest in peace......

My heart breaks today to hear of the passing of a gentle giant. You were so easy to talk to, kind,thoughtful, generous, giving in every way. And what a legacy you left in your children, couriers of that same gentleness and kindness in every single one of them. We are all so much better as a result of experiencing you in this life. May you rest in peace and by the way kiss my mama on the cheeks for me. Til we see you again...

I am soooo thankful for you! I know you were the most amazing man of God because of the beautiful godly daughter you raised! I am so sad I never got a chance to meet you to thank you for my best friend in Samrawit. My prayers are with the family for this great loss but what a greater gain for heaven! God's heart is greater then our pain and I pray that this pain be used to bring many to Christ!
