A Letter from Florence Nabayinda, In MemoriamSpecial Olympics Uganda Athlete

Dear every one,

I just cannot believe that our beloved mother, my friend, a person that changed my life style has passed way! I send this message with lots of tears because my whole life is gone. Today is one of my worsted days and a day I regret in my inter lime.

I put all this in God's hands.

May her soul rest in the internal peas

Florence Nabayinda
