WHEN SORROWS LIKE BILLOWS SEA ROLL..WHATEVER MY LOT, THOU HAS TAUGHT ME TO SAY, IT IS WELL
I got to know you when I became part of the family in 1993.I saw in you, a great person, very calm, clever and well-disciplined young lad. I nicknamed you” WUKPAKPA “(THE BEST OF MY HUSBANDS). which fitted your demeanour and that came to stay. I could not call you any other name than that- Indeed you have been the best of my husbands.
You understood education and even started in the house before going for training. I remember one of the days when you were teaching Nii and he was not taking it seriously, you canned him very well and to our surprise he said to you “TEACHER NI YIOR AKWAADU ELE NOKO NOKO, literally A TEACHER THAT EATS A LOT OF BANANAS IS VERY THICK.We found that funny at that time-Nii is broken can’t hold his tears. Unco Tom, Papa, you sent me a lovely message on Mother’s Day 2020, little did I know i would not receive any this year. I spoke with you on the 2nd of February, also did not cross my mind it’s the last communication between us.
Uncle Tom, our visits to Ghana is not going to be the same without you, to and from the airport , to my family house, when I even tell you to drop me at a near stop to find my way to the family house, you will say no, “I will take you straight there because I have to protect my brother’s property.”
Wukpakpa, I can go on and on , so many things to write, I cannot hold my tears broken hearted .
Wukpakpa Roo and the kids will be looked after as you would like.Thank you for everything. I salute you, you have conquered death. Sleep well dear.
God be with you till we meet again.

Champion Bishop!! This is the name I affectionately called you with anytime and you know I am around.

We gist on any and everything from Academics, relationship to personal life. Debating and sharing ideas on God's Kingdom business and how best we can give our quota to bless God's work.

Roo has always been laughing at us because we never hear stop when we start our conversations. You were that generous soul that shares all that he has with others be it ideas, knowledge and resources.

You were that selfless servant in every office you find yourself in. Your uniqueness in all that you do is outstanding and exceptional. Even as subtle and calm as you are, you easily get noticed wherever you go because you never dim your light.

Bishop! I can write unendingly, because your demise is really a blow to us all. But one thing we are assured of is that you fought a good fight of faith and accomplished your purpose.

Your legacy lives on and would forever remain in our hearts Bishop. Fare thee well my big brother, friend and counsellor. I love you so much and till we meet again, rest in power champion Bishop!

Your sudden demise still remains a big shock to me. You gave your all and best wherever you found yourself and in whatever role you had to play.
This is clearly evident in your service to God through the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Behlehem Congregation where you were elected a presbyter. You did not end it there but again you were voted to the office of Teshie District Session Clerk. Another position you held and served to the best of your ability.
God has called you to a higher court in his service. May He grant you a peaceful rest.
To your dear wife Rachael, Children and the entire family, kindly accept my heartfelt condolences.

My great and famous man, my Barnabas and strength in ministry, you discovered me and cheered me on in ministry. On the 9th of June, 2019, you remarked, I see you in your glorious gown and I am fulfilled. You were sweetly gifted and sang our hymns with meaning. You held the right and fought the wrong alTommy, You bless the earth and you are blessed of God. 29th May remains for ever blessed!

The numerous names I had for you, Mibii atsɛ(My kids dad), Haajiatsɛ and Okotsɛ are what keep ringing bell in my mind.

Will always remember the contacts I had with you during my teaching era and the opportunity you gave me to be part of the life of your immediate family.

Your sudden departure has really hit us hard but we find solace in the word of God which says, In all things give thanks to the Lord. We therefore thank God for gifting us with such a wonderful, calm and kind person like you and at His own time called you to eternal rest in Him.

Uncle Tom, your memories will linger in our hearts.

Hon, you departed too soon, but exactly when you should. It will never be the same without your warmth, your inspiration, your compliments, your unwavering support to me, but above all your friendship. It was deep, touching and will forever be memorable! I pray you rest well after a good fight! You scored, and its remarkable. Love you more, My Hon!

Unco Thom, you have fought a good fight and you will forever remain in our heart. I will miss your Bible study teachings and the teasings on the couples page and at meetings too. You always encourage me to keep doing what I love doing. May your soul rest in the Lord's bossom.

Yaawo jogba
