Just last week we saw Nonini pay tribute to his son Jay on his birthday through a letter on his Facebook page and Dennis Itumbi to his dad on his birthday.
However, Sheila Mwanyigha’s was quite different as she paid a heartfelt tribute to her late dad whom she called a friend, on a day that was perceived to be his birthday.
Here it is:
“If he was here today, I would have probably bought him a cake and a silly card.
If he was here today, he would be pleasantly surprised, but then again not surprised at all, because I always remembered his day.
If he was here today, maybe he would have taken my car out for the day. Just to see how fast it would go. Something he rarely ever allowed me to do with his car!
If he was here today, maybe we would have toasted to another year.
But I didn’t buy the card. Or the cake. My car sat under the shade quietly all day. Because he is not here.
I remembered today as I always will and toasted to my Dad.
I miss you everyday Dad. #Happybirthday and see you soon.”
