Ugandan pop star, actress and entertainer Juliana Kanyomozi is today in remembrance of her late son Keron Raphael Kabugo.
Celebrating Keron’s birthday, Kanyomozi stated on Instagram that she will light candles in his honour as he is greatly missed by everyone.
“My dearest son Keron Happy birthday! I will light a candle as I think of you today. You’re missed by everyone,” posted Konyomozi.
A day earlier, the Usiende Mbali crooner shared that there is a bit of heaven in her home.
“Because someone we love is in heaven, there is a little bit of heaven in our home,” added the singer.
Keron died in his father’s arms at Aga Khan Hospital, Nairobi, in 2014.
He had been admitted at the facility after suffering an asthma attack.
“He breathed his last as I held him. Before he passed away, I looked at him and he also looked in my eyes but we could not communicate. That is the time I realized that my son was going for good,” narrated Kanyomozi’s ex-husband Amon Lukwago.
Amon, speaking to journalists at the time, said that his son was unable to talk and scribbled a message to them saying he was going to pull through.
“I am used to needles now. Do you know how many injections I have got and I did not feel pain not even crying,” Keron is said to have written.
Words that moved his father to tears.
“It was at that moment that I broke down and cried because I saw that he was really fighting for his life. I had hopes that he was going to be fine. Keron has been a strong boy.”
On July 20, 2018, Kanyomozi stated that it never gets any easier and that “the loss of a child is immeasurable.”
“Today my angel has made four years in heaven. And it never gets any easier. I remember your silly jokes, your sense of humour, your charm, your ability to make friends of all ages and somehow engage all of them with such ease.
“You were just so perfect. I miss your hugs and the foot massages. You always told me I’m “THE BEST MUM EVER”, I don’t know what I did to deserve this compliment, I just know I did the thing that I loved the most in the world, be your mother.
“God surely blessed me when he gave me you. On this day I can’t help but think about other parents who’ve just lost a child. Death may be a part of us, yes, but the heartache of the loss of a child is immeasurable. May God continue to strengthen us all.”
