Submit Memories of Nancy Tinoza

Foreword by Cato, USAP Zimbabwe

Innocent Mutetwa Nancy was and will always be my little sister. To her I was and will always be Mukoma Cato. Her passing was sudden and to say it is gut-wrenching is an understatement. I am beyond devastated. The bond between us went very deep. We both attended The College of Wooster. We both studied mathematics. We both moved to Washington DC after graduation, me in 2005 and her in 2012. We both loved sports, particularly American football. I liked the Browns because of our Ohio roots but I had to forgive her for picking the Redskins after she got to DC. We both loved to cook. The list can go on. The bottomline is that there was never a dull moment with Nancy. She was bubbly and full of life. It will take time for me to come to terms with this unfathomable loss. A woman with a great future ahead of her, so bright, so talented, so young, and quickly gone. Just like that? Life can be really unfair. I am praying that her soul rest in peace and for those of us she left behind to find solace in knowing that she is now in a much better place now.

- Cato, The College of Wooster '05
