Message of Condolence for Mikre’s family – Andinet Los Angeles Support and Development Association for Democracy
Our dear brother and colleague, Mikre Yigebiru, passed away after battling with pancreatic cancer for the last six months. This tragic news has shocked all those who knew him. Mikre’s cheerful manners didn’t abandon him even in his difficult last days.
Mikre was always willing to help, serve, or benefit others, if necessary at the sacrifice of his self interest. This altruistic character of his drew him to stand with the oppressed people of Ethiopia in their struggle for basic human rights.
Mikre was always willing to calmly discuss and give a benefit of the doubt even to those he disagrees with. He served as a Vice-chairman in Andinet Los Angeles Support and Development Association for Democracy and played an important leadership roll to support the struggle to form a democratic and prosperous Ethiopia he had always envisioned.
Mikre’s selfless journey of life has touched every one of us, directly or indirectly, we are lucky to have worked with such an honest and dignified man and we will always cherish his memories and carry the obligation to continue the struggle to fulfill his dream of a new democratic Ethiopia.
We will miss him so dearly and treasure his memories forever. Our prayers are with his family.
May his soul rest in peace.
Mikre Yigebiru’s Funeral Service will be on Saturday, March 13, 2010 at 9:30 am at Virgin Mary Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church 4544 Compton Ave, Los Angeles CA 90011.
