One year ago today, the African community at Mason lost a beloved soul. Naol “Abiti” Dinku was known and loved by many, both here at Mason and in the surrounding area. His energy was contagious and his smile always lit up the room. Whether you knew him or not, he was a joy to be around and such a kind and caring person. Though he is not physically with us, he will always be near and dear to everyone that he came in contact with. His impact was far bigger than himself, and we were blessed to have gotten the opportunity to make those beautiful memories. To all his family and friends, we extend our deepest condolences as well as our continuous thoughts and prayers. Rest in Peace and Power Abiti, gone but never forgotten. Always with us. ❤️
