Dear Katunge and family, I remember in my recent childhood meeting with Kimo during your brief visits to Kenya and he was honestly and outstanding, mature and very talented individual. It is sad that he has left us but I would like to assure you our prayers are with him and your family during this mournful period. We must accept God’s will but it should please you to know you have an angel in heaven watching over you and all of us together. May his soul rest in eternal peace and my deepest condolences to you and your family. God bless.

To Uncle Noble, Aunt Katunge and Kavinya!

When we heard about Kimo it was the last thing we could have expected I feel extremely hurt knowing I won't see him again.

Kimo and I grew up together as family friends but we ended up being like cousins. My siblings and I would look foward to their visits to Kenya and the lovely moments we all shared.. Kimo was funny, loving,,talkative and extremely inteligent.

We shared many fun moments together that I will forever cherish. Rest in Peace my friend I will really miss you!

With love!

We were shocked and upset by the news of Kimo's death. We knew him as a young boy in the neighborhood who stood apart by his extreme politeness and friendliness...learned from his parents and sister, Sara. We hope that the memories of such a fine young man sustain you. He made a difference in the lives he touched.
With sincere condolences,
Win and Joe McCann

Katunge and family. I will always cherish those moments we shared at Parklands Sports Club. Kimo was such a gentle polite and we'll behaved young man and I often said you would never guess he grew up in America.
Please take comfort in the Lord who knows all things and can help you bear even the most difficult trying time
Pole to all of you on the loss of this promising young man who had so much to live for. He is at Peace in heaven let him rest in the loving arms of Jesus
