Susan’s Bereavement: Vote of Thanks from the Mark Gaya Family

The Mark Gaya family would like to thank all Kenyans, friends, well-wishers and sympathizers who supported the family morally, economically and in any other way after Susan, Gaya’s wife, lost her dear brother in Kenya. Susan is currently in Kenya to attend her brother’s funeral.

Speaking to KSB, Mr. Gaya thanked the “Susan Support Committee” that was headed by Mr. Jared Odero for the great job the Committee rendered in support of the family during a difficult moment marked with great shock and sorrow. Gaya also thanked all those who congregated at the family residence in Märsta immediately and after the sad news was broken to be with them plus all the good people who attended a Prayer/Fund raising meeting that was held on Saturday, 6th September as part of funeral arrangements in Stockholm. Further, Gaya thanked all friends who volunteered to sit in the Committee in support of his family.

According to Jared Odero, Committee Chairman, a total of 11.000kr was realized after all deductions of bank-rolling and other overhead expenses. Mr. Odero thanked everybody who attended the event and all those who helped in realizing the funds at very short notice. According to Mark Gaya, Susan’s brother will be buried tomorrow, Saturday, 20th September 2014 in his home village in Siaya county.
