Koru Ase omosike Simon Nyabwari:
Dear Colleagues, Members of Shelter Housing Cooperative, as well as 270 Acre Project:
It is with profound shock to let you know that our Chairman Dr Joel Ongaro passed on after a short illness on Sunday the 1st of January 2017 while undergoing treatment at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital, New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA. Dr Ongaro led this organization with distinction and under his leadership a team of 50 investors were able to acquire 270 acres in Kajiado County, Kenya.
Please, join me in sending our deepest condolences to his wife, Mrs. Mary Ongaro, children Cliff and Lona Ongaro, and the entire family in Kenya and Worldwide. There are two events planned for his farewell:
One, the fundraiser for shipping his remains to Kenya and also to help defray travel expenses for the family will be held today Saturday January 14, 2017 at Muungano SDA Church [1799 John F. Kennedy Blvd, Jersey City, New Jersey, 07305]. Church Phone:  433-1250.
Two, his funeral service is at the same venue tomorrow Sunday January 15, 2017. Those of you who wish and are able to attend these functions, are most welcome.
Yours at service,
