You are one of the most inspiring people I have ever known. Just your presence alone was amazing. You were so genuinely nice and caring. To know you for those 10 years and to work with you for 7 really made this difficult for me and my husband. You were always in a good mood, always had something good to say. It was an absolute pleasure to work alongside you. You mean so much to us all. May you Rest In Peace forever.

May your family be comforted with your wonderful memory. May all of my brothers and sisters be safeguarded from the evils of the world.

The morning after, I came across this scripture in a strange circumstance but I felt it to be fitting and took it as a sign. May you always know how much you mean to all of us.

Micah 6:8 He has shown all you people what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
