Yesterday, Dr James Gakara was laid to rest together with his two children Dylan and Karuana in a tear-filled burial ceremony attended by family, colleagues and friends.

Moving tributes were read by his wife, who is yet to come to terms with their death.

"It's like a movie that you watch so deeply, keenly and passionately and then it suddenly stops! Now I know it's not possible for anyone to live 1000 years. My heart bleeds and I am completely shattered.

Never in my wildest dreams have I dreamt of something like this. It feels like a dream that is just never-ending... I do not know how my weekends will be, I do not know how my Sundays will be spent. Only God knows. I lost my strength, my purpose for life... Go well my dear beloved husband, my sweet girl Karwana and my darling baby boy 'Didi'."

Also giving her tribute was Winnie's mother who penned a moving tribute to her two grandchildren.

She wrote, "My heart is bleeding, you were my wonderful little angels I can't forget your calls every night telling those interesting fairy tales you had learnt from school."

Adding, "You called me mama pipi. I will surely miss your beautiful little voices telling me goodnight we love you."

Addressing the late Dr Gakara, she said, "Daktari, I am lost of words. You were such a humble person, very gentle and so respectful. I will keep remembering your words of encouragement, “Mama nothing is impossible” You could visit anytime without notice. I will miss those moments. God knows better what happened."

She continued, "I know how much you loved your family and took good care of them. Thank you for the short time you joined my family. God didn't want you to stay longer because you were such a special person. Rest in peace with your little angels singing beside you. Till we meet again."
