Catherine Prengei, wife to the late Senator Victor Prengei has paid tribute to her husband as he is being laid to rest today.

Prengei died in a road accident along Kabarak-Nakuru road on Monday evening last week.

The requiem mass of the late Nominated Senator Victor Prengei is being held today at Good Shepherd church.

In the tribute Catherine, says she is still to come to terms with the death of her husband.

"Day by day, I think of you. How can all of this be true? I can't believe you are gone. I still can't accept it.

Just the thought of you makes me cry. I never even got the chance to say goodbye.

Every picture, every letter, I don't know if it will ever get better.

I always smell your familiar scent. It makes me think of all of the times we've spent.

Grieving you feels like you are still around, hidden and invisible to my naked eyes but my spirit is heavy with your presence and memory.

My dear husband you were everything to me. You were my world...I miss you.

When I look at the skies and see the twinkling stars, I know that you are with us, watching from far.

You were a very special person; you had a lot of kindness in your heart.

You were very patient and you dealt very gently with me, you gave me everything I needed and more."

Catherine added,

"The love we shared was strong and cannot be replaced.

Now that you are no more, while I know I cannot bring you back, I wish I could.

What a painful coincidence that as we lay you to rest, today marks the day our son was bought into this world.

How I wish we could be together for us to celebrate his 3rd birthday. It is hard to make him understand that you are no more, as he keeps asking -wapi daddy,mbona unalia mum, nani chapa wewe?'

I lack the courage to tell him whenever he asks, 'mummy pigia daddy simu, 'mummy fungulia daddy gate'

How do I answer him, I know you are in a better place another life away from us. A place of peace and rest where we will meet again someday.

Go well my sweethart until we meet again."
