    Dear Mama Alem and Family,
    I am truly sorry about the loss of Baba Kesete. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
    I have fond memories of Baba Kesete from the few months together back home in Addis around 15 years back. He was a very gentle man with the warmest smile ever. I will always cherish those times and keep you in my heart, my dear Uncle. You will be sadly missed. May God rest your soul and give us all comfort!

    It was very hard to accept Baba Kesete passing. As we have listened to message by the pastor and poem by Dr. Tesfay at the memorial service; it was nice to see that Baba Kesete’s care and dedication in life continue to live on.

    Life is eternal, and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.

    May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared, comfort us now and in the days ahead.

    With Deepest Sympathy,

    Tesfai Bariagaber Family
