Hajja J, mom to some of my closest friends, and my own dear friend since our arrival to CAR 21 year ago, is gone. She went to meet her Maker on Saturday. She will be missed, her smile and warm welcome and oh so quick wit. She was dearly loved. I was able to be with the family on Monday at her oldest son’s home. The place was packed, for Hajja was the middle wife (one older and one younger still living) of Chief T. Big family!! Oh, the tears with each greeting, mixed with joy in the reunions. I was able to see and visit with many I haven’t seen for a long time, sorrow and smiles all together. May the Lord have had mercy on her soul.
