Today I celebrate (Ruth/Grandma) a life well lived full of grace. Its sad for me I will never have another chance with you but the memories of you will forever live in my mind and heart. You were a brave fighter and an inspiration not only to me but many. I remember the warm welcome and the hug Grandma gave me on my visit in 2017. We shared lots of stories of the life behind us and life that was a head of us. I will forever miss you Grandma.

This is my song to you Grandma. May you shine your way till me meet again. ( )
Lots of love
Alvine (Nairobi, Kenya)
