It was a sad time when I learnt that Fr Tarimo was sick. Then the terrible moment came when his obituary was published by the Socius of the West African Province. Fr Tarimo is no more! This couldn’t be true, but it was true. Tarimo is gone to the beyond! When I saw the heap of fresh soil in Mwangaza cemetery, I knew it was true! I had great admiration for Fr. Tarimo. Losing someone of that caliber is a great loss to the Tanzanian Church, the Society of Jesus, Hekima University College and the American Universities where he taught.
