Words are not enough to describe the sadness and emptiness I feel to know that you left us so soon. Molisa your friendship will always be treasured by me. We had a brotherly bond from the time we came to the USA for our University Studies. We did everything together. Even majored in the same undergraduate studies. I have never heard you raise your voice to anyone in anger. You were just always peace loving. I remember your big smiles and lots of laughs. Also, a lot of encouragement and advice both ways. If anyone asked me to describe you, I would say, you were a superb person with a wholesome character that anyone would appreciate. My heart is also very heavy with sadness because you have left behind May, your beautiful wife and your beautiful children. To May and the children and all parents, siblings, relatives and friends of this humblest of man in my view, I point you to the word of God in Psalm 34 vs 18...which says "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit" and also Psalm 147:3...which says "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds". Until we meet again when our Lord and Saviour returns to take his redeemed, rest in peace my brother. I will always cherish your memories.
