NEWS: Shirley’s mom has been granted authority by the court in Kenya to bury her daughter. Read more…

The six-year-old Shirley Wambui Mundia proudly marched wearing her maroon graduation gown on May 30th at the Veritas Academy in South Bend, IN. This was her first graduation anticipating many more and a bright future. She bragged about her awards to members of the family thereafter. Her mother had big dreams for her. We are still in disbelief that Shirley won’t have the chance to live any of these dreams.

Little Shirley, brutally murdered by her own father on the morning of Sunday, June 2nd now rests in heaven with God. She will be deeply missed by her mother, family and friends. Shirley will be remembered for her adorable smile, little tight hugs and a big heart. Baby Shirley made everyone around her smile. She was a regular, joyful six year old with a golden heart.

The family extends heartfelt gratitude for all the prayers and support consistently flowing in from all corners. This is the response of love and the power that overcomes. Thank you.

Thank you all for your support during the memorial service.

Thank you and God bless you all.

“Shirley, we know you are with God. You are mommy’s newest angel now. She misses you and all the little things you did. She carries you in her heart and so do we. Rest in peace.”
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”Luke 18:16.
