"Ami me y3 baatan nti mibunfu. Oyaa fr3m kerker ai"
These words from you keep resounding in my ears as you emphasised how you understood the busy schedules of today's (working) woman making it difficult for me to visit again. Auntie Effie, you were to me a great mum, friend and counsellor; and I believe our Maker has adorned you with His glorious crown. Our conversations always left me beaming with smiles because it was full of wise counsel, funny comments and stories. They created a belief in me that someone shared my fears, doubts and was proud of my little accomplishments.
Several statements of "Mawuraba, Nyame nyhirawo ati...", a patented comment from you ceaselessly crowded our conversations. Unfortunately, you are no more, and I might not hear them again with the sincerity with which you said it. I miss praying with you, I really miss you Auntie Effie. You were truely phenomenal and cannot be easily replaced or forgotten. I am joyful that you played a role in my life. Until we meet again, sleep well my dear friend.

Maa, you are not physically here anymore, but your love and light live on forever. 
The body is but an outer covering for the soul. The reality is the soul that never dies but just changes form. So, we know that in some way, you will always be there around us.

Godmother ❤️
Ringing in my ear is how you call me ..”Miss Baffoe or Me nana Kwansima”
You always made us laugh telling us how you were still a young lady
An amazing gem you were ❤️
I will forever miss you Grandma.
I will forever miss baking cake with you.
I miss looking for you in your mauve scarf in church
I know you are smiling with the best angels now.
Continue to rest perfectly in the Lord ❤️

I will never forget that fateful Wednesday morning,7th April 2021, when you said "kofi, where is the ambulance? I want to go home." Not knowing it was a goodbye forever. The cruel hand of death had snatched you away from us. We will miss you every day. I thank God for you and cherish the memories we made. I love you. I looked up to the sky and thought it looked amazing. I realized that it’s because you are up there, flying with the angels now, but still guiding us because you are always with us.
No words can express my grief of losing you from our life. Memories of your face, warm smile, large heart and good deeds bring tears to my eyes.I am completely heartbroken that you are gone forever, it's so hard to face reality. My condolences to Christie and the bereaved family.

#RIP#

To a beautiful life,
Mama is what I knew you by.
Your beautiful daughter Christie shared you with us.
The memory I have of you is the radiant smile that never fade. The heart that won so many friend and instilled strength to those who needed it.
Just like your daughter your life was beautiful by your kind deeds. You were the helping hand for others’ needs. Your memory will live on forever. Our dearest Christie has a guardian Angel watching over her and living within her heart. We know that you shared a great bond and the fond memories of you will cheer her on.
Rest well dear mother.

I'm honored to say a few words about my dear Mama Effie. She was a cheerful, fun-loving lady who was full of life. Her smile could light up a room and it was infectious. She made everyone around her happy with her sincerity. Getting off the fone with her was always difficult as her convos were always so interesting. The world especially those who were blessed to know her will never forget her because she was indeed a delight to be around!!!
Oh yes we have lost a gem!!!

A mother's love for her children lives in their laughter, in their tears and stays with them forever. That love never departs from their hearts, not even death can seperate the children from this love. Maa you made me know how much you cared and loved your children even in the last days of life and I know you have not and will not depart from them, you'll continue to be the sweet comforting love in their hearts and they'll continue to love you now and forever.
May your memories bring peace and joy to them as that's all a mother seeks for her children. Rest Well in the bossom of the Almighty.

Auntie Effie,  Mama is how I affectionately call her. Knowing you since I was a child has always been so amazing and lovely. Way back from primary school days when Christy brought me home and coincidentally you being my mother's friend and Ola Anglican Church Mother solidified our relationship.  You loved me as your own. Though Christy and I  sometimes fought and not talk for a while, you never took sides but still considered us as daughters   " Nana eti wonua ninka" ? You asked me just to ensure we are at peace with each other. Auntie Effie, you were full of life and a very kind person..We were never bored around you as you always had your life stories to share to encourage us in life..We are missing you dearly..I can't stop watching the video of you, my mum and I at the dance floor at my mum's birthday. Rest well Auntie Effie, Rest in the bosom of Christ. 

IT WAS "THE CAKE" FOR ME!

Dear Mama Time has taken me back to House 17.  I think of you and I still smile, you never disappointed on Christy's birthday when you will come all the way from cape coast with a huge basket of food and goodies. My pound cake was always separated and packaged just for me. That feeling I had when I think of your love for me is unexplainable. I cherished and looked forward to it. It's left a lasting impression on me till date. You loved me from the first time you heard of me and that never changed. I continued to eat your pound cake yearly until 2019. That was our thing! Your love was deep and genuine. I thank God for sharing such a beautiful soul with us. We love you and we miss you dearly ❤
