|Let the memory of Alexander Christopher be with us forever|
"My enduring impression of Sandy is his friendliness and warmth when we met at a party he and Nana threw sometime back in the early nineties. I was deeply shocked to hear of his passing - may his gentle soul rest in perfect peace."
"Sandy, may you rest in eternal peace. Sandy was a warm-hearted person who always had a smile.
It is with great sadness that we heard about his passing however we know he is now in a better place.
All we have are the memories but he is forever in our hearts."
"Tribute to Alex Awere by Minister Kwaku Sarpong, Dominion Centre
Alex joined Dominion Centre (DC), a thriving Christian community located at Wood Green in North London for about two to three years between 2004 and 2007. He was known to be a very gentle and kind person and got on excellently with other church members. During his time at DC, Alex joined the Counselling Department and assisted in welcoming new members to the church and also did some follow-up telephone calls and visits. He was also responsible for preparing the department’s rota.
Alex became a personal friend and worked directly with me. Apart from the activities he undertook in the church he was quite helpful. I remember his offer to help my family and I move from Romford to Ware in Hertfordshire in the Summer of 2005. During that move, Alex drove one of our cars to Ware and his assistance was and is still greatly appreciated.
Perhaps one of the key characteristics that he exhibited then was his unflinching faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his consistency in church attendance. Such was his consistency that he was commended by the Senior Pastor during one of our services.
It is with shock and sadness that we learned of his demise recently. He will be sorely missed and it is our prayer that his soul rests in perfect peace. As Christians we are however comforted in the thought that he is in the bosom of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
‘Alex da yie’. Alex damrifa due!"
"May you rest in peace Chris...days spent with you in Achimota Primary are now more precious in memory than ever. Rest in the Lord."
"TRIBUTE TO CHRISTOPHER AWERE- A SCHOOL MATE AND FRIEND
BY ACHIMOTA PRIMARY SCHOOL CLASS OF 1978/1984 YEAR GROUP
We entered Achimota Primary School, a Boarding facility in the year of our Lord 1978 at an average age of Six (6) years..
The most memorable thing about Christopher who was affectionately called Chris was his ever beaming smile. We hardly if ever saw him get angry over anything. In good and bad times, he always had a smile.
From his parents Labone residence in Accra the capital of Ghana, he came to attend classes sometimes as a day student due to health issues but this never dimmed his ever ready smile.
Christopher, left us in 1983, a year before our completion to enter Secondary School when he relocated with this family to the United Kingdom.
Some of us kept in touch a few times during the period thereafter by exchanging written letters sent and received through the Post by Air Mail now known as Snail Mail.
In 1992, when he lost his Father suddenly, some of us joined to sympathise and mourn with him on the mountains of Mamfe, Akuapem in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
Upon his return to the UK, we lost touch as the Classmates had also scattered far and wide (locally and internationally) as most were getting ready for University/Tertiary Education.
We had just created a Year Group Whats App Forum- 1984 APS Group on the 25th of July 2016 and were trying to get as many Classmates as we could find to be on the Group Chat.
Christopher’s name came up and we searched tirelessly to get his contact and add him onto the forum. Alas, after a little over a month of searching in vain, we were hit with the sad news of his demise on the 5th of September in the United Kingdom.
We were all at a loss and dumb struck. Death had laid its icy hands on one of our Classmates. It was Christopher Awere, our own Chris. That beaming smile is gone forever.
Fare thee well, friend. Till we meet again, God Keep you.
Christopher, Damirifa Due!!!. Due Ni Amanihunu!!!"
"Sandy was loved by everyone and he gave so much love back. He was respectful, humble and never had a bad word to say about anyone. He was a kind and gentle soul.
As our brother-in-law we will always remember you as caring, loving and always keen to help others. You will be missed by all of us. May you rest in peace. Love from the Appeah family."
Your brilliant mind, caring nature and infectious laugh will be missed. Though as friends we only shared a few moments, they were truly memorable...
Like a rainbow fading in the twinkling of an eye, gone too soon...
Rest in perfect peace dear friend."
"Those that touch our lives .... stay in our hearts forever.
Rest well my brother and we shall meet again one day."
"Words fail me. Rest in peace bro."
"Just wanna make a lil shout out today for someone, who was humble, never was nasty to anyone, kept themselves to themselves and who was happy in the eyes of others, never complained when he was in pain or suffering.
My mate and a mate to a lot of peepz in Boots, who was loved by all of us, especially who he mainly worked with on healthcare!!

"You are a valued treasure that can never be replaced.
"May your soul Rest in Peace"
""The premature death of a young person always shocks us.
Chris, we are filled with great sadness. You are gone but not forgotten.
Our only consolation is that you are in a wonderful place now, resting peacefully in the arms of God.
Rest in peace, dear cousin.
(On behalf of the Tinkorangs)"
"Our dearest brother Sandy, who will always have a place in our hearts. Your sudden death has left us with a hollow. Your big smile will stay with all of us.Cherishing some of the memory's, like the times we will play computer games for the longest times, when we (Ghanaian crew)go clubbing, when I went with you to your driving test and you returned the favour and came with me to pick up my frst car. May you now rest with the angels and dance with your father again."
"Sandy, you have left us all shocked at your sudden departure. You left too soon. You have left a gap in the family. We may ask "why" this has happened, but only God knows why He took you away at this time. Your warm smile is etched in our hearts and we won't forget you.
Rest in peace Sandy. Rest in peace.
The Afoakwa Family"
"From Uncle Kofi Noi (Samuel Okwei-Nortey)
I had seen Chris grow up to enter the tertiary education and I was very proud of him.
He was a quiet person, very shy, soft spoken and genuinely inquisitive in his quest to know more. I remember him a while back before he did his A levels, he invited me into his room and after we had prayed and discussed a few things from the Bible and some world events, he asked me what I think about his subject choices. We were able to consider carefully and meticulously the prospects and opportunities for the future. It was not my position to convince him to change his course, but I was very honoured that he would confide in me to seek my humble opinion.
I can surely say that Chris was a very respectful person, and also respectable gentleman, full of smiles and genuine concern for others welfare.
One funny thing I had been wondering, when I compared Christopher's height with Cyril's when they were very young, was that he was very petit, while his brother was quite lanky. He was patient, and felt that his time would come when he would shoot up, as if he had a destiny in deciding when he would gain his height. Not to be outdone, as the years went by it was wonderful to see him claw back on some of us, and shot pass me in height. This showed his belief in the God he put his trust in - not a complaining type, but patient and full of faith.
Chris you did grow to become a marvellous example for any person to emulate. I was proud of you and all that you achieved and continued to be thankful for.
My regret is that because of our schedules, we couldn't meet as often as should have been, but it was satisfying to hear about your progress from your dear mum, who was proud of you.
Your are now gone to the place of no return, but your cousins and I are filled with much joy, hope, confidence that that the One you fell in love with while here, is glad that you completed your work and has welcomed you. Rest in His bosom until we meet again, dear one.
Uncle Kofi Noi (Samuel Okwei-Nortey)"
