"Rest in Heaven my friend. We last saw each other at the Sam Club in Oswego. You always had a big smile and a huge hug for your CA friend. We talked about you being ready for babies as an old man and how proud you were to be married.  

Isabella, I'm praying for you honey. I've been where you are losing my beloved husband 16 years ago. Know and trust time will heal but he will always be in your heart."

"Odupon Atutu - an important tree has been uprooted! Kwame, part of your last note on 24th May, 2016 to me on whatsapp was: "Thank you Daddy, I really appreciate your prayers, and with it I did not hear from you again Like a candle in the wind we lost the flame.  Thank you for all you did for my family in that short space of time.  together with your wife I knew you had plans to build family but alas, you did not live to accomplish tham, May the good Lord support the wife you have left behind to keep the lighted candle burning. May your soul find rest in the hearts of the many you touched in the 42 years you spent on this planet."

"Kwame Odame welcomed my family into his with open arms. Kwame called me sister and never sister-in-law. He texted and called often to touch base and see how we were doing. I miss him and I'm grateful for the time we spent together. Still I wish we had more time together because Kwame was just special in every way. Rest in peace brother till we meet again. We miss you, love always xxxx

"Kwame Odame was a caring person and had a unique way of bringing people together. Kwame and I became friends after learning that we were two of the three of Ghanaians at my current employer. We worked together for 3 years. Although Kwame and I worked in different areas we would always look out for each other frequently visiting each other during the work day.

An example of Kwame’s gift for bringing people together was when Kwame heard that a fellow co-worker was leaving the company and starting with an organization I just left and both of us planned to attend University of Chicago. Kwame introduced us to one another. The gentleman and I have become good friends. Only a select few would look out the way Kwame did.

Kwame was a calm dude and did not sweat the small stuff. But there were several things that were important to him his wife, family and friends. I remember when Kwame told me about Izzy, he was excited! He would always tell a few co-workers and I how he was looking for exclusive gifts for her.

He would tell us that no gift was too great for his girl. Kwame set the bar very high and made it nearly impossible to catch up. You could see that every time he spoke about her.

Kwame and I were known as the hardest working people in our respective departments. As the saying goes, like attracts like. I respected Kwame’s work ethic. He would stay at work late or on
conference calls to the wee hours. We were probably the only people to consistently grab lunch late. It would be about 3 or 4pm. One of us would hit up the other, I know you forgot to get lunch lets grab a bite to eat.

Thank you for being a part of my life, my friend. I will miss you and thanks for being a good friend."
