"I have begun and erased this first sentence more times than I can count because I feel numb and speechless.

It's incredibly difficult trying to accept that our tender-hearted witty, beautiful little sister, Gathoni, is suddenly no longer with us. Never had we imagined such a loss."

We send our condolences as they lay their loved one to rest.
