Wanjiku described her father as a hardworking man who made sure they lacked nothing.
Wanjiku went ahead to narrate how she had a dream about a road accident three days before her father’s death.
The dream was about an accident and it was about him. Having been in a roundabout and the car caught fire. I never knew it could be real.
The young girl narrated how she prayed about it and didn’t tell any of her family members.
Daddy wherever you know that I never knew the dream would come true. People say dreams don’t come true but this one did.
She thanked her father for teaching her how to do house chores and she said,
Your clothes are all ironed in the closet but have no one to wear them.
