"Death is so cruel. It has taken you from us when we had so many plans. You were so kind and generous and a great friend.
"We will miss you. I will remain to remember how you supported us in the interpretation of Kenya sign language in Baringo, Nakuru, Mt. Elgon, Maseno, Oyugis, Siaya, Meru. This one has hit me hard my dear friend," one of her friends, Wachianga Wachianga eulogised.
Essie Essy, her kin added that "This was the last thing I ever expected to hear. Yesterday (Sunday) we spoke and you inquired about your nephew. You gave me hope that healing was his portion. Little did I know some few minutes, less than an hour you would leave. Rest in peace."
