Eritrea - In Loving Memory: Ararat Iyob
 
It is with great pain that we infom you that a few days ago we have lost one of Asmarino's pioneer columnist Ararat Iyob.
 
Four Candles
 
The first candle represents our grief.
The pain of losing you is intense.
It reminds us of the depth of our love for you.
 
This second candle represents our courage.
To confront our sorrow,
To comfort each other,
To change our lives.
 
This third candle we light in your memory.
For the times we laughed,
The times we cried,
The times we were angry with each other,
The silly things you did,
The caring and joy you gave us.
 
This fourth candle we light for our love.
We light this candle that your light will always shine.
 
We cherish the special place in our hearts
that will always be reserved for you.
We thank you for the gift
your living brought to each of us.
 
We love you.
We remember you.
