Auntie Boaduwaa, it is an understatement to still understand how your passing has affected us.Just a few months ago when I spoke with you on your birthday, you did not give me any hint that you will be leaving so soon.Maa,you have been more than a mother to us.You showed us true and unselfish Love when we were very young.
   Taking us to church,the good counsel you gave us growing up as young adults and the bonds you build between us and your own biological children speak volumes. These bonds endure today and by God's grace will continue to endure for the rest of our lives as a testament of the Godly principles, the motherly care,the moral character that guided your life.
   Perhaps,I was more fortunate of the siblings.For you took me into your confidence and we shared a lot together.You celebrated our joy with us but you were also there in our trials and our losses and provided us with comfort.Your presence alone in those difficult times was enough.
  Maa,the scriptures says in Ecclesiastes everything has its time.A time to be born and a time to die.As your children, we believe that you have accomplished what the Lord set forth for you to do on this earth. And quoting from an old Irish Prayer,May the good earth be soft under you when you rest upon it,May it rest easy over you when at last you lay under it,And may it rest so lightly over you that your sour soul may be out from under it quickly, and up and off, And again, May God Hold you in the palm of his Hand.

Maa Boaduwaa,Rest in Peace Perfect Peace!!

In the lovering memory of chief inspector Edith Boaduwaa Adjei,(Rtd). I used to call her Antie.

Antie, the very day I got a message from my dad about your sudden death I remembered one thing you use to tell me that" Yaw in this life sometimes you have to take risks in other to achieve your dreams", Among this are a lot of advice you gave me, Those special memories of you will always bring a smile if only I could have you back for just a little while, Then we could sit and talk again just like we used to do, You always meant so very much and always will do too, The fact that you are no longer here will always cause me pain, But you are forever in my heart until we meet again.
REST WELL ANTIE.

How do I begin to write a tribute for my beloved Sister?
They say there is a friend who sticks closer than a sister and that was you Edith,warmest and kindest person I have ever known.
My heart is heavy, bleeding day and night. I wish this was a dream.

I met you at Crime Lab and from day 1 you drew closer to me and showed me pure and genuine love. You took me as your Sister and was always there for me through thick and thin for the past 34years 
You are a breath of fresh air with a heart of Gold, a true meaning of generous, principles, high morals, discipline person and full of WISDOM.

I thank God for bringing an angel like you into my life.
The memories we shared will never be forgotten and you will always be in my HEART

I know we shall meet on the resurrection morning. But until then, Sleep well my dearest Sister Edith Boaduwaa.

In loving memory of Chief Insp Edith Boaduwaa Adjei (Rtd)

Our family is keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4.

When we lived in Juba Ridge Burma Camp, we did not just lived there as next house/door neighbors and not just known you as Mrs Adjei. Rather, we lived as a family and called you maa and my parents called you sister Edith. This gives us all (The Gbikpi Family) fond memories of you. You opened your home to us and allowed your children: Tina, Akos, Mansa and Ken to relate to us as family. By doing this, you created a positive impact on our relationship with your children which started from childhood through teenage to adulthood and still continues.

To mention, one of my fondest moments with you was when I last saw you about 3 years ago. This was at Tottenham in North London where you were with your sister after a church service: You noticed me from afar and called out my name. You gave me such a big hug and you were so happy to see me after so many years of not seeing each other. We talked and talked and shared lots of laughters when you described how you made identification of me (you were truly a good Chief Inspector): and even said to your sister that was me and truly you were right. Although you had earlier made identification of me during offering time to the altar and you could have left after church service, the beauty of it was the afterwards. Among the big crowd with many people after the church service, you did your best to find me before going home. By doing this, you showed true love and care. All this feels like it happened yesterday. If only we knew you will be gone soon, we would have had more big hugs, talked at length, shared even more bigger laughter and would have taken more beautiful pictures of us together. As I type this and look back, I see your beautiful smiling face and hear the sound of your lovely voice . 

Maa as we the Gbikpi children called you, sister Edith as our parents called you may your beautiful and kind soul rest in peace as memories of you live on.

It seems like just yesterday when I saw you in your blue jeans and a bright yellow top right at the gate of your former office, the police headquarters. You were on retirement and had come there to sort a few things out. I recount our conversation as we walked up the road.
I can't believe you're gone.
I take consolation in the fact that you have gone ahead of us to a better place where there's no more pain and suffering and you're shining down on us.
Mummy, rest peaceful in the bosom of the Lord until we meet again.

Maa as Mr Baa,my mother,Jojo and myself called you,words can not explain how I feel right now. You were a mother like no other.You gave me life,natured me,taught me, dressed me,fought for me,shouted at me, but most importantly you loved me unconditionally with my family.
You gave my family shelter and cared for us like you did for your family.Maa you were indeed a wonderful women who had time for me and every other person. I remember the last time we spoke, you promise to commission my apartment and be the guest of honour at my marriage ceremony. Maa why did you leave without honouring your promise. Now that you are gone who would call me wanting to know everything concerning the rest of my family. Who would I call and complain about Mr Baa and Jojo to. Who would be there to advice me as to how to go about things. I will really miss you and you will always be in my heart.May that love you had for all surround you now and bring you peace. Until we meet to part no more. REST WELL MAA.

I'm it in shock. Wish it not true. I couldn't come home to you to say you I'm grateful. I'm short of words. May you rest in the hands of the maker. Rest well Anutie. It's well.

Adjeiwaa as my mum Sally called you, words cannot explain how I feel right now. My fondest memory of you was when we last met at the 37 bus stop about 18 years ago. Oh how time flies. We stood across the army officers mess just talking. We talked and talked until there was nothing else to say. If only I could get another chance like that with you.
Oh death where is your victory?
My consolation is that you are at rest with your maker where there is no illness or suffering. Maa baba nawo.
Till we meet again.

Remember, Lord those who have died and have gone before us expecially my aunty marked with the sign of faith. May my aunty who sleeps in You God find your presence light, happiness and peace. Through Christ.
Am lost for words. A black Tuesday I will never forget. I knew in my heart you will get well and go back home but what did I hear? That you are gone and I will not see you again? I know those we love don't go away. They walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard but always near, l know very well you are near and closer than before. Still loved, still missed and very dear.

The quill that drips of ink and smears the pages whilst the minds tries to gather its thoughts is exactly how I'm feeling mum. It's impossible to put all that you represent into a few pages. This medium offers us more room to pour our hearts out any time we recall all of your expressions of life and your presence. I thank God we were GIFTED with a mum like you. You were selfless and dedicated to whoever or whatever you set your mind on to assist. You have battled and won the victory, many times over.

29th June now becomes a day in my minds - the day our beloved mum surrendered all to her maker. You have been an epitome of strength, kindness, generosity-beyond-reason, loyalty that shoulders the burdens of others and so much more. Maa - My confidant, my support and compassionate adviser. Who will I share my daily activities with now? You enjoyed checking my status and using one photo or the other as a conversation starter, to know more about my day's events. Sometimes when I called you with an already formed view; you knew exactly what to say to get me deep in thought, to rethink my next steps. I couldn't imagine that this day will come so soon. But we are encouraged and comforted in Jesus' blessed assurance. You were always quick to find remedies to soothe our pains and ailments. You were quick to help us care for your grandchildren and you enjoyed showering them with so much love and attention. A loving granny who can find? You cared for our children even more lovingly as you had cared for us. We are grateful to God for giving us the opportunity to be of support and care for you. We thank God for gifting you to us as our mother. We love you so much and pray you have a peaceful rest with our Maker. Nyame nma yen okyina daa. Da yie. Nyame nka wo hu.⚘⚘⚘

How do I start to pay tribute to a life giver and the best person I knew. My brain fails me for one's and the tears in my eyes betrays my external persona as a tough man. If the amount of times I deleted what I was writing ✍could be seen, then many would know that I cannot do this. My mum is gone, my Supporter for forever ❤, who shall I ask for help and support from now. She gave us all everything she had and never said No even if she couldn't. I have taken advantage of this many times and she never refused a single time. Many have gone and we shall all be set upon the same path but this hurts more than my words here can express. I just hope tomorrow will bring me and my sisters a renewed strength that I cannot see today. Our love was not said often and it was not our style but my heart knows best. I have people around me but I feel empty. This void would not be filled and I would want it that way. She was one of a kind and the cliché that is expressed by many who have lost a loved one now falls upon my doorstep. I love you mum.
