Mumbi G. Ndumbi It's been such a loss and pain and each day the reality doesn't seem to get easier as he was the one daddy who I could speak to, reason with and get counsel on soo many fronts. He held my hand and walked with me as a daughter and individual when dad passed on and later my husband Frank. No one can ever fill that gap, only Yahweh. Ciru Muriuki, Karen Muriuki and your sis and mom, hugs, hugs and more hugs. Shalom.
