Whilst you were all merrily celebrating Easter Monday on the 28tj March 2016,celebrated female vocalist and artiste Avril was laying her father to rest in a private affair farewell ceremony in Njoro Nakuru.
Avril’s father succumbed to a heart attack while recovering at their home a week ago after being in and out of hospital due to illness.
The “Nikimuona” singer took to her social media account to mourn her hero in a sad and touching tribute letter. She also thanked all those who stood with her during her saddest moment;
“Dad, I’m going to miss you so much but I know you are going to be with me through everything like you always were…I know your spirit will be with us and we will see it in the generations to come. I will instill the lessons, values, hunger for the hustle and principles that you taught me to my babies and their babies. You were to walk me down the aisle, see your grandchildren but your destiny was different. I will not question it but only give thanks for the time I had with you. I will always love you and we will never stop smiling and sharing the love that you taught us to always have for one another. Rest now. I know it’s all better now. Rest now .. RIP,” wrote Avril whose real name is Judith Nyambura.
On her friends and all who came through;
“Saying thank you is not enough .. I am so grateful to so many people who have genuinely stood by my mother, brother and sister. To my friends that I count as family because of what you did today and have been doing for the past two months. Thank you thank you thank you. May your cups overflow with blessings upon blessings and may your hearts’ desires be fulfilled beyond measure.”
