"Uncle, time has gone by but you remain fresh in our minds and still manage to make us laugh as hard as you did yourself. The memories we shared are still vivid and the lessons still pertinent. How can we forget you? Not possible. Rest in peace until our turn comes to quit the scene."

"Time has passed, things have happened.
You did your part and the kids have grown to do theirs.

"Uncle Tom,
How can we ever forget you? I remember how you took care of Jessie and me when we first came here, two teenage girls, unsure of ourselves. You were always there for us in the place of our parents. I thank you for this and may God reward you."

"Saw you just a few times, but received good report about you, having
helped to establish some in the US, generously rendering service to
the needy. You made the world a happier place for many, a God given
gene to the Awuros and Atoghos. Farewell."

"God's will has been done and who are we to question him?  May you RIP
My first ever trip to an Airport was to see Uncle Tom off to the USA. I saw true committment and love manifested, when Auntie Monica cried and fasted for nights and days. I am so glad they are finally reunited never to part with God nor each other."

"Dear Uncle Tom,
There will come a time when we also have to bow out like you have done. We would have loved for it to be much later but God has decided otherwise. All we have now to cherish is the memories. And there are many. You were always a straight talker, and we always knew where we stood with you, on any one thing. For me, it was early in the 70s when I came and spent a holiday with you an"

"Uncle Tom, your sudden death still baffles me as I am struggling to come to terms of what happened. But I am so glad to know that you are in Heaven as you gave your life to Christ before GOD took you away from us. Heaven rejoices over one sinner who comes to Christ and that is our joy too. We shall sincerely miss you, but when I look at our wedding photos, I'll always see your smile. Rest"

"I can remember when you came by to simply notarize a document.  I can't believe that was the last time I saw you.  I asked you of George, Matthew and even your sister married to Mr. Atogho. I am not fake.  What ever the case, all things happen for the good of those who trust in the Lord.  We are families of tragedies out living whatever comes our way.  We are a continuity. Let your fire st"

I can't express the pain i feel in my heart at this moment.Life was good but then it started falling apart when the sad news reached us.I could never imagine such a tragedy could befall us but it did.

May you rest in perfect peace"

"The very first electronic game I played when I was small was bought by you. You were there for me whenever I needed your help and you always gave me advice. "Danko" was how you used to call me. Who will be there again to call me that name with that voice of yours. You will remain in my memories and may your soul rest in perfect peace."

"The Lord God, the Almighty one has done his work. I and all of us succumb. We yield to his sovereign will. You are no more but He reminds us that He is in total control of the situation. This is the source of our comfort that your children, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends who mourn you, acknowledge that God knows us all and He will take care.
It is you, the strong and bold man in the f"

"You stood out like the lion among the gentle Awuro Uncles.
You were just Uncle Tom, just yourself, holding back no punches.
Yet it is common knowledge that beyond that tough facade,
Laid that happy family man with a big heart. Farewell."

"Uncle Tom, your presence in our lives was indispensable. You were there for our three children, Leah, Robert Jr and McFibert. Here is USA, even though distance kept us apart, you always managed to be there when it mattered: christening, birthdays, and graduations. To all of us who knew him; an angel of Lord.  He was so kind and very generous. May the Almighty God be with you forever"
