Winnie Odhiambo, the wife of Dr James Gakara has penned a moving tribute to her two children. 

She had been married to the Nakuru doctor for 7 years and was blessed with two children. 

But a week ago, Winnie's 5-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter died after allegedly being injected with insulin by their father. 

In her eulogy, Winnie has shared that her daughter was acting so strange during her last days. 

The mother says that her daughter was sad in the past 3 weeks, and used to tell her that she is scared.

In her eulogy, she remembered how restless her baby was that fateful morning. 

"I remember on that fateful day, my girl Karwana woke up unusually early - at 5.45 am.

I was away in Nairobi; you told your nanny to sleep with you a little longer, and then called me and told me you are afraid and very sad!!! I can't help but wonder now if you were having a premonition.

I can't help but think – what if I had run back home to be with you?" Winnie shared. 

The mother of two says her daughter cheered up after being promised to be taken out and get some treats. 

"Later in the day you called again and were so excited about the day you and Didi were going to have with daddy. You told me he was taking you out for milkshakes and video games and then to the pool.

I knew I was going to hear from you again after the outing so you could tell me how it went," she recalled.

Even though she did not hear how their previous outing was, Winnie looked forward to hanging out with her family the next day. 

"I was looking forward to meeting you the next day in Nairobi. When that call didn't come; my blood ran cold. I ran back home only to find both my babies lifeless. I am lost.

How am I supposed to be your mother one day and not the next? They say that grief is love that has no place to go. I believe that now. May God receive you my angelss. You were too good to be true."
