What life can never prepare you for...is to lose a beloved parent. My most honored, most cherished father has rested. I have grappled with the unimaginable pain of losing my anchor, my best friend, the best man I have ever known. Words are not enough to express the immensity of this loss. But in all things, we praise the name of the Lord. Dad, I will love you forever. The rest of my life will be spent longing to see you again,” wrote Ciru Muriuki.

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.
