Dear brothers and sisters in Diaspora, last April 2012, I approached you in desperate sorrow after learning the death of our sister Suzan Nabweteme. The inner strength and soldier fighter instinct in each of us to never give up on Suzan, coupled with the determination gave us the will and power to raise the funds that helped to repatriate our sister’s remains back to Uganda. As good citizens in Diaspora, we overcame this obstacle and have created a miracle in our lives but most importantly, we have created a legacy in the late Suzan’s family! I am grateful to all of you who rallied behind us during that difficult time. Below is a thank you note from Suzan’s family. Your sister & friend, Lukiah Mulumba.

Mama Evelyne Jjunju and Betty Nakalanzi of Entebbe Uganda together with the family of the late Nabweteme Suzan Sheillah wish to extend our deep heartfelt appreciation and love to the Ugandan Community in the Diaspora for your spiritual, moral, messages of sympathy, comfort and above all the financial support toward the repatriation of our late sister’s remains back to Uganda to her final resting place. It was a great consolation to us as we conceded to nature’s way of acknowledging life. “For life is, but a process of death”. Suzan’s remains were finally laid to rest next to her late mother on May 24th 2012 at Mpigi, Uganda.

Our special thanks go to Captain Lukiah Mulumba the next of kin of Suzan in conjunction with the president of Dallas-Fort Worth Mr. Atigo Monday and his cabinet, Mr. Brian Kwesiga of Dallas and Mr. Ntege of California who mobilized Ugandans in Diaspora. We further thank the people in the following States; Texas-Dallas, Massachusetts-Boston, Washington State, Maryland, Pennsylvania, California, Minnesota, North Carolina, and Michigan. We further more thank people in the following countries; Canada, German, Sweden, Norway, England- London and France who contributed money. We also want to thank the following churches for their financial and spiritual support; St Peter’s church- Boston, Catholic community- California, Global Evangelical- Boston, House of Prayers- Dallas, Ms. Joyce Prayer Line- Maryland, and Nations for Christ Church- Dallas, Texas, Revival Missions International Church, Power of Prayer Church all in Dallas, Texas.

We also appreciate the following media services; UNAA Times now Ugandan Diaspora News Blog, Radio Munansi, Radio Uganda Boston, Kalibu restaurant –Boston, Ugandans at Heart, and Uganda Yahoo group UNAANET. Lastly we would like to thank Mr. Sekabembe Musisi the father of Capt. Lukiah Mulumba and his family who initially reached out to us through the various local radio stations in Uganda. Your acts of kindness, generosity and sympathy gave us comfort in our time of sorrow. Thank you so much and may the Almighty

God reward you abundantly.
Entebbe, Uganda
