Daudi is sharing this tribute to his father:
The blessed life of Mutiso John Rupert has come to that special place of discontinuity. The memory of his gentleness and excitedness is what we are left with. A week ago he wrote these words –
“In spite of the shortness of time, life is wonderfully
good. I feel continual gratitude for all the love and
care I get, and not just from other people. This is
the hymn of thankgiving I recite many times a day:
Thanks for all your love and care
and for the beauty of your face
in flowers and forests, fields
and forms of humankind and beasts.
Thanks for families
fellowship and friends.
Thanks for the fullness of your grace
and for each step and every breath
that lead me to a blessed death
May you all be blessed abundantly as I have been
~~ Mutiso Kalai (John-Rupert Barnes)
He was dearly loved.
