Kenyans in Southern California turned up in large numbers to pay their last respect to 6 year old Arianna who died on independence day from accidental choking.
Arianna’s mother Ann moved the mourners to tears as she eulogized her only daughter, recalling the wonderful moments they spent together and how complete Arianna made her life.
The funeral service was conducted by Pastor Gichuhi and in his message, the pastor emphasized that Arinna was destined for the mansion in heaven earmarked for God’s children after death. Quoting from scripture the pastor echoed:
“To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.”
There has been an outpouring of support and love for Ann and her family following Arianna’s untimely death. Kenyans in Southern California have been meeting everyday to condole with the bereaved.
Here is a tribute from African Warrior Magazine family.
