Death of the mother of Marc Nsanzurwimo, M.Afr in Burundi

Marc Nsanzurwimo_2012_BFrom Marc Nsanzurwimo, M.Afr

With sadness and gratitude, I announce to you the passing over of our dear mother Monique Babonangenda last Friday morning (5th February 2016). She was 75 years of age. Since 2012, she was suffering from a light stroke which made difficult the movements of both the right leg and hand. She had given birth to ten of us (all of us are still alive), of whom I am the eldest, i.e., 6 ladies and 4 men, 21 grand daughters and grandsons and 1 great grandson. I thank the Lord for her exemplary life, her strong faith, her dedication to the family and her welcoming attitude to all who have shared the earthly pilgrimage. I am happy I was able to be near her the last months of her life especially to celebrate the Eucharist which accompanied her as she was crossing the threshold to heaven. May she enjoy peace and love with the Lord of life.

    We, the staff of the formation house newly opened in Chipata together with students are sad to hear about the death of Mum. A mother is a mother whatever age she had, in our traditions it never early for a parent to leave us. We assure you with our prayers and we shall be praying for you and all the family members, and in a special way for the soul of Maman Monique. Timothée Bationo, M.Afr
