lost my mum through murder

by Karimi

I cannot even begin to tell how hard it was for me when mum said bye on 11th January 2012. that was the last time I saw her. She never came back home, never called and we did not know where she was. it took us 3 excruciating months to find her. In a morgue. not recognizable as she was murdered and dumped somewhere and by the time someone found her, she was decomposing.

3 months in hell. and I thought Icould get closure if we found her. No. I can still see images of her getting strangled. I have so much anger and pain in me, I cannot even explain. No amount of alcohol can numb some feelings.

we buried her on 20th April 2012. She was my mentor, we talked everyday on phone ,,and I was actually visiting when all this happened.

Her friends have been a pillar. mine have been too. I cannot imagine what would have happened without family and friends.

I know my brother is hurting too.. we are only 2 children. He is as devastated as I am and I cant help him.
I cant help myself either.

I just hope that one day the pain will easen and I will not have so much bitterness. I love you mum

Mercy Take Heart
by: Tony Okungu

Mercy, Loss is never welcomed nor convenient. The time of grief is lonesome, stressful and awkward. You feel betrayed, confused and as if someone hit you in the stomach. You need great patience with your slow healing heart. Mum left a strong willful and capable lady behind and that’s you, you need to prove to her that you are what she always believed you are and can do by moving on and soldiering forward continuing in her work.
May the Lord show you His tender mercies, strength and peace in the days ahead. May He surround you with the love and comfort of family and friends. You can always depend on me to be there for you.
