Sorry Nick for your loss. No words can offer you comfort otherwise we would flood you with them. May this have meaning for you and for the boy, who we believe / know still lives on elsewhere.— Peter Gathirimu, OP, MD (@GathirimuPeter) June 30, 2021
I'm so sorry for your loss, dude. I could almost see the happiness in your tweet when you first tweeted about his birth. I personally am a father of a 15 month-old son and my biggest fear is losing him. Comfort is on the other side of this grief. I understand grief, I lost a bro.— Gideon Kigen, Sr. (@GideonKigen1) June 30, 2021
