"May God bless her soul!"
"It was a long, empty and difficult year without you, Wagi. Paradoxically, it still feels as if you are right next to us: what´a strange irony! I suppose it is because you were the most valuable, warmhearted and uplifting, precious friend and family member one could ever get. It is simply not possible not to miss you every day.
"May God bless her soul."
"Wagiye, you were the big sister I never had. Miss you and love you. Be comforted by the amazing children and family you have, and one day we will all see you again."
"There are people who are soft, inside and outside. Such was Wagaye. To remember them is to be touched by softness. And to be reminded of God who is Soft towards us in the deepest way, through Jesus Christ."
"Wagaye, On your 2nd anniversary, I lit a candle in your memory. Your beautiful smile will always be in our memory and in our heart. I am glad I had the chance to have known you. I know you are looking after us from Heaven."
"Mom, you're always in my heart. I feel your presence wherever I go, I hear your voice when I need the encouragement, i see you in my dreams looking beautiful as ever. Its like you never left us. There hasnt been a day that passes withought me thinking about you. I miss you and love you very much!"
"Wagi left a permanent mark on my life. Her smile and presence still warms my heart. The legacy of a righteous woman like Wagi, lives on forever in our lives that she touched - and in our children's lives for all eternity. She is a great testimony of how the Love of God becomes fresh in our life as we remember walking and talking with this amazing lady."
"As I remember my dear Wagicho on her second anniversary, I am still filled with a smile, grateful heart & warm memories. I miss her so much and can't wait to see her in heaven."
"To remember some people is to feed quietly on some inner food.You, Wagaye, my mother and a few others belong to that category. I thank God for the days given to you here on earth.

"Lily T I will miss you very much. I will always remember how strong and loving you are. I will try to be a mother to my kids like you are to your children."
"Tomiye, You were one of a kind. Even on the phone, I always sensed your beautiful smile, your easy going and courageous attitude. It is comforting to me that you were surrounded by those who loved you the most, especially your loving family, because you had so much love to give. And now, you are in the house of the Lord. May you rest in peace my good friend. I will always miss you"
"No one can experience this sadness as I do, for my feelings are unique, genuine, and very personal to my beloved sister Wagaye. No one can begin to know exactly how I feel, except to know that sorrow such as mine is deep, personal, and real. Wagaye was my best friend, my companion, the only person I ever trusted the most, my only critic, and my only true confident. Ever. Wagaye, Thank you."
"The wonderful treasured memory I always cherish of Wagaye was in my early work years in ECA. Whenever Wagaye passes by our office, she voices with beautiful smile “Ayizoch! Berchi!”. These words chime in my ears whenever I am in a new work environment. Receiving such encouragement and support being new in a new office/work surroundings, means a lot, I always remember her. May God bless her soul"
"Since I have known Wagaye I love her and respect her for her strength and being a great mother to her children and how she loved our Lord. I am very sad and sorry that I cannot be at her memorial service to say good bye. I know Jesus is happy to have her now with Him where she has no more pain and sickness and we are sad because she is not here with us. May God help us and heal our hearts now."
"Reading the various greetings to Wagaye has moved me. She bore the name of a common grandmother whom the great majority of us never saw. I feel that Wagaye has more than merely carried the name of Adey Waga. She has made her alive among us. Wagaye was a noble cousin, noble in bearing and persevering. Thank you. We are comforted by the fact that you had committed your life to Jesus."
"I am deeply saddened by the untimely death of my former colleague and a friend Wagaye Gayim. I used to work with Wagaye from 1981-1988 in Ethiopia. I always remember her for her kind humbleness and smile. I will miss her very much. May God rest her soul in Peace! With my deepest sympathy to her family."
"Wagaye is the first person I met when I joined ECA. I still remember the good old days at Finfine. I will always cherish the memory. May God rest your Soul in Eternal Peace."
"Wagesh and me known each other for more than 30 years while we were young and energetic she was one of my best friends. I have no words to express my sorrow when I heard her passing away! So kind, generous welcoming, God fearing! May the Almighty God rest her soul in eternal peace!"
"Wagi was my best friend. She was very honest, lovely, energetic, supportive, disciplined and honorable sister: the best example of what a sibling should be. We were all blessed by her life, and we will always miss her. Eyassu Gayim"
""May God bless her soul. We also pray that God give strength to her family during this time."
"Wagaye, we will all miss you. You were a true sister. Rest in peace and let the Almighty place you in heaven and give strength & comfort to all of us."
"I knew Wagaye since 1966. We went to the same High School - Commercial School in Addis Abba Ehiopia. Even though we went our separate ways after graduation, I remember Wagaye as being kind, articulate, engaging and very friendly. She will be greatly missed but she will be in our hearts forever. May she rest in peace and God bless her soul."
"My precious sister Wagaye, was the sunshine on a rainy day,I struggle to understand a world without you my dear sister,We dearly miss your presence in our lives, may you rest in peace in the arms of the savior and that you will never be forgotten!"

She was a selfless person who dedicate her whole life to the well being and upbringing of her beloved children. She will be missed very much. God bless her soul.
"Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.Psalm 116 7"
"Since I first met Wagaye I was so impressed with her quiet sense of confidence and security in her relationship with Jesus Christ. She inspired me and made me more complete with her model and example of the virtuous woman of Proverbs 31. Wagaye lives on in each life she has touched during her 59 years - we are indeed a better person for having known her."
"Wagicho, your candle will continue to burn forever, I will miss your calls, and your caring spirit, you will be in our hearts forever......"
