Did u Know Uncle Robert Tumuhairwe, he passed on today morning, he was the first Kasana Manager
==========================I rarely had a message from Ugandan "nephew", Robert Sennyonjo. This was dropped in yesterday, and, along with it, my heart dropped, too.
I hadn't seen Robert Tumuhairwe since early 1996; hadn't heard much about him since then. Any time I looked at my photos taken back then, I always grinned when I saw him. He had such a heart for the orphans at New Hope. And, yes, he was the manager. But, NO, he wasn't thoroughly administratively oriented. He...loved...kids!! And he had some good ideas.
Now, for a few months, I was his secretary. He gave me what he needed to have done, explained the details and time limits, and readjusted if possible. [Since I "secretaried" for 6 people, readjustment was sometimes an absolute necessity.] He never fussed, always smiled, and expressed appreciation for me. [When working for someone for free, that's nice, to say the least.]
After receiving Robert's message, then contacting my dear ones, I've been told that he had a heart attack.
One of the final times we saw him, we had lunch together.
So... the joy? We will see him again. In Heaven. No work together, no worldly/earthly jobs, no intense tasks.
What could NOT be joyful? Maybe not able to play badminton together, but I'd sure like to.
