’A Thousand words won’t bring you back; I know because I tried.
Neither will a Thousand tears; I know because I’ve cried’-Kily Dunbar

It seems like yesterday when we all trooped to call on you when you last paid a visit to us. Today we know that your visit to us was a valedictory one, for it was a visit that surpassed all visits. You were at your best, full of smiles and love for all. You continually told us to keep the brotherly and sisterly flame alight and never under any circumstance allow it to dim and die. As you rightly pointed out, people die but love and ideas live on.

As a member of this association, you matched your words with action showing impartial love and care to all. You opened your home for us all to make our home. Where it was within your means, you offered assistance with the proviso that it should not be broadcast. You were so much self-effacing in your philanthropy that most did not know what you were doing except the beneficiaries of your help.  You were a mother, sister, aunt to so many that for many years we will forever hold your memory as a keepsake in our hearts.

When it comes to dealing with the truth, you were the beacon and hope we look upon. You once said quoting Mark Twain, “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything”. In your relationship with the association you embodied the spoken and expressed truth.
Dada, we dearly miss you for the laughter and jokes you shared with us; we miss the friendship that was nurtured within and without the Volta association; we remember and miss the defiant moments when you stood your ground-resolute in your faith and purpose defending the truth; we miss you each and every one of us in our own way in what you meant to us collectively and individually. You touched every heart in different ways that words are just inadequate to describe such. And as Kily Dunbar aptly put it, “A Thousand words won’t bring you back; we know because we’ve tried. Neither will a Thousand tears; we know because we’ve cried’

You were once with us and though you are gone, we will never forget you. You have taken the step in the everlasting journey home and in the tomorrow that will come we will perpetually speak your name and close our eyes and smile because you lived. Look down on us from heaven with your infectious smiles and keep us free from hurt and pain. You will always be within our hearts until we meet again.
Auntie Vicey as you were affectionately called, yours was a life well lived. ‘Like a butterfly in flight, you drifted off to paradise. A journey to the rainbow’s end, leaving broken hearts to mend’
As I hear the sound of distant drums amidst harmonious singing from the angelic choir, welcoming you home, all we here can say is: May the Lord grant you eternal rest till we meet again.

Auntie Vicey, yi na dzudzor le nutifafa me

"At school you were full of mirth and the milk of human kindness. You never crossed the anger divide and was always ready to make amends.

We will surely meet again. George Homadzi Kosi aka Alhaji Moka"

"Sister Vicey though our association was brief, you left a long lasting impression about the values you told me to hold on to. Even though you are gone, your words will remain in my heart where I will nurture them to the benefit of the society you loved so much. As you told me the last time, things become difficult if you do not want to do them. I will always remember your words. Farewell and may the good Lord grant you perpetual repose.

"From Sela Zoe

Aunty Visey, you were such a pleasant and fun woman. I remember our visits to your home and your extra surprise call from Ghana when i lost my mom in September. In fact, I was so impressed and very shocked hearing your voice. I remember you teaching me "Alogo ngognoi" meaning "Dimples" in Ewe. I laughed my heart out that day. I remember how well you received me when we met the first day at the park when you realized I was Charity's daughter. Death is indeed wicked aaaahhh. I never knew you would leave few months after mom left after you sympathizing with me. O death!!!. The questions are unending but rest with your maker aunty. You were REAL, WELCOMING, PLEASANT and full of life. Dzudzor le nutifafa me. Greetings to Sis Charity (Jiagge-Hodanu) as you called her. Rest in Peace."

"Auntie, the news of your death hit us so hard.  It was not expected especially where we did not hear of you falling sick.  This simply reminds us of Psalm 90:12 "So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."
The few times spent with you were really a blessing.  Kind woman with a high sense of humour.  Auntie, you were the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31.

REST IN THE BOSOM OF YOUR MAKER, AUNTIE VINCENTIA."

"Death is a thief that steals our joy!! But GOD knows what we do not know...!! We remember the good times we shared, the celebrations we have had, the dances we danced, the meals we ate, the songs we sang, the moments of joy we shared, the intimate pieces of advice given/taken and wish these times should last forever. But life is a blowing wind. Now it is here! Now it is gone!!

Sister Vice, by your life and style, you have taught us love, caring, sharing and peace. There is none like you! You will be missed. So, it is with hearts that we say, "Hede nyuie!! Dzudzor le nutifafa me!!"

CHUKS, BABAA......NAWO!!!"

"Sister Visay as we popularly called you.  You were such a bubble of joy and so caring a person till the end.  You always called to check on us even when we fail to call you.  During the past few years you went to live in Ghana, you still called just to see how we were doing.  I vividly recall how my siblings and I were always in and out of your house at Keta (Hagbanu) and the special way you will pronounce my name whenever you wanted me to run an errand for you.  You were always my point of reference when it came to family history or leneage especially here in the US.  Sister Visay, "Daadia deka abe eve ene" You will forever be missed.  May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace till we meet again.  Dzudzor le nutifafa me!!!!!

"Miss me but let me go
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me but let me go
Toe this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all a part of the Master's plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss me but let me go!!!!!

"I can still see the contagious smile that never gave away how you truly felt because more important to you was how you made others feel. "Rebe, how are you darling?, how is Dexter?, how are the children? We thank God"...a greeting that became so familiar even when you were the one that deserved to be asked that question. On every bride's wedding day, she needs the loving support of a mom. Thank you for filling those shoes. Thank you for loving me well. Who are we to question God for calling His angel home? Rest In Peace, dear Aunty Vincentia."

"Twenty eight years ago our journey began and lives on. Who can forget you mama? The jokes, the guidance, oh counselor, you  played your role beautifully to the end. I cannot stop the tears each time I think about you and writing this has been difficult. If you were here, you would have said "Faustie, let it go, stop crying and let's give it to God" This is what you will say in Ewe. Thanks for showing me so much love and extending it to the children and their dad. May the Lord receive you with open arms for the love you shown on earth. May your soul find peace and joy with the Lord. Thanks mama. I love you."
