My heart is with you, Sheila, and your family. It is a tender loss, and though I did not know him, I know you all carry and reflect the many positive qualities of this man. With all my love!

I met Baba Sheila about 2 months ago when I visited him. We sat at the garden together, him, Josephine and my friend Freda.
We had time to talk and as much as he was looking forward to being well again and go back home and to his OFFICE, one thing he said was that, GOD HAS THE FINAL say and indeed God had the final say and rested dad.

Josephine my friend, Sheila, your sister and brother, may the Lord grant you the comfort that only He gives as you continue with your journey of healing🙏🏿

I don’t remember the first time I met JKN Kamunyori. I have always known Uncle John. I guess since we would visit each other’s home courtesy of mum and dad, he saw us grow up from our youth.
I always remember him smiling when we met growing up and even when consulting him on legal matters in his office in Nairobi next to Vic Preston service station. The last time I met him in hospital he even managed a smile.
He was Uncle, lawyer and friend to me and I shall miss him greatly. Rest now in the comforting presence of our Lord and saviour until we meet again uncle. Auntie, Sheila, Bobbert and Joy, you are in our prayers and may you receive the peace and grace of our Lord.

I got to know John although not very well through his amazing daughter Joy who is my daughters best friend since they met in nursery school quite a number of years back. They still keep in touch regularly, meeting when they can.

I remember John as a jolly man who was committed to his family. On the few occasions I met him he used to make me laugh.

I know it must be hard for those who are unable to come home for John's send off but stay strong for dads sake. Remember I said he was a jolly man and I know he would not want to see you cry.
Josephine I remember you as a strong woman. As I have experienced what its like to loose a dear husband I know your heart is broken right now, but may the God of all peace comfort and strengthen you all at this time of great loss.

Kind regards,
Anne Awori. Malaika mum.

We are on a short and long journey together and in spirit. Those close to John, feel encouraged although you are down. One day, the Lord will lift you up and dry away your tears of love loneliness and missing.

Indeed a father is a treasure. You loved him and continue to love him, but God loved him more. He is in a better place seeing y'all up above with the angels all around him. Remember God always has the best plan that we really sometimes cannot understand. Those left behind keep strong and know that he is with all of you in spirit. We will all meet him once again in heaven. May the comfort of Christ be with you all!

Sheila, Robert, Joy and the entire Kamumyori family. I’m very sorry for your loss and how much more difficult it is to mourn him at this time. What a loving dad he was, and also very funny. When my daughter gets older and says she is bored, I will quickly pull out “read a book” line:-)

Joy and the entire Kamunyori family, please accept my heartfelt condolences. I pray for the Lord to grant you strength and comfort during this difficult time. May Dad's soul rest in eternal peace.

Uncle John was an integral part of my childhood as the Kamunyori and Khimulu kids were raised together as family friends and so Im blest to have many awesome memories of fun times spent with Uncle John.

Auntie Josephine, Sheila, Robert & Joy know you have two special angels watching over you in heaven now as Uncle & Mureithi are reunited.

I am holding you all in my prayers and sending massive love and hugs across.

My heartfelt condolences go to the widow, Josphine and the entire Kamunyori family. John Kirk, as we called him then was in Form 3 when I joined Kangaru in 1961. I still remember him as a very kind young man who protected us from the bullies of the day. Coincidentally, his elder brother was my headmaster at Nyangwa Intermediate School in 1959. A few years ago I reconnected with John and Josphine as members of Lavington United Church, and he was still the kind gentleman that he was in 1961. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Life indeed is short. But by God’s grace, each one comes, does our part and then goes back to our Maker, in our allotted time.

John has done his bit and left his legacy in society, his family and us, friends who are now mourning his departure. May the Lord provide all that the family needs by way of comfort, acceptance and funds to carry out John’s last rites.

My dear ones: Josephine, Sheila, Robert and Joy, May our Mighty God Bless and comfort you now and always. Accept from the Khimulu family our sincere and deepest and heartfelt condolences.

Josephine and family May God give you strength to cope with this great loss of your loved husband/dad. Blessings to the family.

The tributes on this memorial reflect a man who was loved and admired by many. They also explain why his children are amazing individuals, for they are just like their dad. His legacy lives on. May his love for you and the memories you have of him inspire and give you strength in days to come. May he RIP.

God saw that he was getting tired,
A cure was not to be.
We could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
And hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes 'The Best'

We knew little that morning,
God was to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you.
The day God called you home,
You left us beautiful memories,
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

Sheila and family, the life history of your Dad is such an inspiring one and even though I never met him, I think I see a lot of him in you, Sheila. He is gone, but his strong legacy lives on in you and your siblings. This must be very difficult for you all and all I can ask is that the God of all comfort give you his perfect peace and help you through the moaning in this strange time we are in. Take heart and be strong. You are in my prayers. Sam
