    Aunty was truly a very special lady. She was so caring and made you feel like you were the most important person to her when she talked to you.

    Juracy was my dearest friend from when I was just married. I will always remember how much she helped me in my early days in Kenya, when I had just arrived from Zanzibar. Andrew and Pius were the best of friends.

    My dear Juracy, I will miss you. I had hoped to see you again some day but now it will be in heaven.

    May your soul rest in eternal peace.

    Love,

    Quitty

    Dear Winnie, Rozendo, Margaret, Michelle and Andrea and all the family,
    We were saddened to hear of Juracy’s final illness, and her death will be a terrible personal grief to you, her children and grandchildren.

    It is lovely to read the account of her life, since I knew her personally only in my childhood. I still have a photo of Andrew and Juracy’s wedding where my brother was pageboy. We did continue to have news of her over the years of course, and send our love, prayers and condolences to you all.

    Winnie and Rozendo, we will be thinking of you especially, as we knew you when you were here in England. We will pray for Juracy’s soul even though she has already done her penance here in her final illness.

    Love from both of us
    John and Nalini
