Our shock is immense, our disbelief wide, and our sorrow runs deep for the untimely demise of this great inspiring man and a voice for the poor and hard working people of Tigray.
We are very shocked and saddened to learn of his premature passing and just wanted to express our sympathy to his family and friends on behalf of the Tigray Community in Seattle, WA.
We Just want to let you know that we share your grief. We all empathize that the sudden loss of a family member and a colleague can be a most difficult thing to bare.
Our thoughts are with you and our sincerest sympathies go out to Mr. Araya's family, friends and loved ones
Mr. Araya, be assured your legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of the Tigray people and any man would be proud to leave such a legacy.
Abel Ghirmai (on behalf of Tigray Community in Seattle, WA).
