To all Academy Alumni Members:
On behalf of the entire Abraha’s family, I would like to extend our gratitude and sincere thanks to all Alumni members and their families for organizing the memorial ceremony held on Feb 7th, honoring our beloved Yigzaw.
Col. Yigzaw Abraha left for Ethiopia to pay tribute to his recently deceased younger sister. He planned to come back for business as usual on January 29th. Unfortunately and unexpectedly, he did not make it.
The incident was really a big shock to our family and all his friends. For all of us who closely knew Yigzaw, both socially and professionally, his sudden death does not seem real or right. For a lot of reasons we still could not believe what has happened.
It is very painful to loose a loved one, especially when there is no sign to that effect. Situations like this remind us how fragile we are. That life, although cherished, is not always fair.
We were all impressed by the love, respect and honor shown by Yigzaw’s fellow officers. We appreciate what you all have done. We were touched not only by the kind words spoken, but also by the deep emotion conveyed during the memorial.
I am both humbled and honored to be invited to join the Alumni. Words cannot express how deeply moved I am for this gesture. Being a part of the Alumni will enable me to always be reminded of him and his outstanding military contributions through each of you. I hope that my presence will also remind each of you of Yigzaw’s memory.
Once again, thank you so much for comforting us and for standing by our side at this difficult and tragic time.
May God bless you and your family.
Isaac Abraha and the entire Abraha family
