Personally, I got to know Rose-Mary, 20 years ago. Except that we share the calling as servants of God; she raised me and was my pastor when she was at Ntenyo Parish. I will miss the wise ideas of Rev. Rose-Mary in our different archdeaconry meetings. I congratulate Rev. Rose-Mary on this milestone, and pray that God will continue to bless her and her family as she enters this new chapter in her life.

With Great Affection and Gratitude
