Dad,

We’ll always remember
that special smile,
that caring heart,
that warm embrace,
you always gave us.
You being there
for Mum and us,
through good and difficult times,
no matter what, you were there.
We’ll always remember
you Dad because
they’ll never be another one
to replace you in our hearts,
and the love we will always
have for you, is infinite.

Dad I can’t believe it’s been a year today since you left us I still remember that frightful day like it was yesterday getting the call from mum that you have collapsed and LAS was with you . On the very long drive from london to Harlow we prayed and prayed hard that you will get through this but sadly you didn’t. On that day the 12 feb 2021 you left us dad and left a big hole in our hearts .
How lucky are we to have had a father so special that we miss you this much? As much as We hate not having you around, I’m happy to know you’re at peace.
You may not be with us any more, but our love for you will never die. We miss you, Dad. Keep resting in perfect peace lots of love ❤️
Emily

uncle Kwesi

We spoke this week a year ago remember? Your lecture on stress free life was well received though still struggles practicing but trying. You mentioned so much death surrounding us and that it's getting too close to the family circle; little did I know that was your way of saying goodbye. I know you are resting peacefully but somehow somewhere I know you are checking up on your loved once. 12 02 21 God knows best.  Thinking of you. Dad rest in perfect peace. IT IS WELL.

Uncle Kwesi it is hard to take in that you are no longer here! Wow what a man! What a great heart! Your capacity to love and care felt immeasurable, and for us that is your legacy. We will never forget you and are forever grateful to you and Aunty Thelma for being there, especially at special moments and milestones ... your wisdom, support and care along the way have meant a lot to us. A particular cherished memory of an act of love you showed when we lost our mother/in-law comes to mind, and this to us speaks volumes about your warm and massively generous heart! We will miss your presence but we will always cherish our memories of you. Esi Eduama, Kwaku & Faith Akuffo-Akoto

Grandpa,
There are no words that could possibly describe the heavy magnitude of the loss we are all feeling by your passing. I have so many cherished memories of you that I will never forget!

As a child I was convinced you were a magician and would try to recreate your tricks, “Pa-blue, Saka-blue....” and I’d look at my hands hoping sweets were there.. I still don’t know how you did it.
As an adult you were a philosopher to me - and at the end of all our conversations, I always felt a little bit wiser from the knowledge and wisdom you would share.

Thank you Grandpa for the kind, warm, caring and loving nature you always showed. Thank you for showing me how good one can look in a bow tie and waistcoat.
Thank you for always being there for us in the good times and the rough.

There are not enough superlatives to emphasise how great you are, and although you may no longer be with us physically, you will ALWAYS be within us.

With love,
Julian

Uncle, words cannot express how much I miss you, I’m so broken by this huge loss. The thought of you gaining angel wings makes me cry. You have been my rock throughout my marriage life since my dad, Mr J H Morrison (blessed memory) handed me over to you on his retirement to Ghana over 20 years ago. You never turned your back on me. Uncle you have been my confidant, encourager, support in many of life’s challenges thrown at me. My heart broke the very day I got that phone call , but I know that you did not go alone as part of me went with you. The thought of not having you around for our occasional family dinners and weekends away is a painful sting, but I cling to the memories you have left me with and the unconditional love you have shown me will still be my guide and though I cannot see you, I know you are always on my side.

I am extremely grateful to both you and auntie Thelma for the role you have played in every area of my life and of my children. My children have always known you both as their grandparents and that will never change.

In life, I love you dearly and in death I do the same. Rest in perfect peace.

Uncle Ollie as I’ve always called you, I will really miss our lengthy conversations over health and life in general, and all your advice. I have learnt so much from you through our conversations and I really miss that. I am ever so grateful for being one of your many children and also granddad to Kevin, Andrew and Samantha. Thank you for being there for us, at every gathering and at Kevin’s graduation, actually driving us all the way to Nottingham and back, the fun and laughter we had, I will never forget that day. Nowhere was too far and nothing was too much for you. I will be ever grateful for all the kindness, caring and love you shown us again and again. Your memories will live on in my heart forever. You are one of kind and I am grateful to call you my uncle. I am grateful I shared a birth month with you. Micah 7:8 ‘’though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my Light’’ Rest in perfect peace of the Lord and rise in eternal glory.

Dearest Uncle Kwesi, I will never forget the love, care and support you always showed to myself and my family. You were so pleasant to talk to and had such a kind heart. A true gent you were and a great example in all areas of life really, I truly admired the way you took care of yourself and your home. I will miss our little conversations we had when we would meet but our last conversation through the window during when covid was at its peak will be one I would never forget, your words of wisdom and your ability to put a smile on one's face was truly heart warming. I'm so blessed to have known such a great man because that you were indeed. You will be sorely missed and never forgotten. Uncle da yie, rest well in the Lord. Xx

Grandpa I miss you. I remember when I was younger and you used to do magic tricks with polo mints for Julian and I, I would go to school and tell all my friends that my Grandpa knew magic. I remember seeing you and grandma at every family function looking smart as ever with dark glasses. I have so many beautiful memories that feature you and I’ll keep them close to my heart forever. Miss you and love you forever

Uncle Ollie, I can no longer call you on the phone and ask how you are only for you to say " no news is good news" on account that we have not spoken in a while. I will not bump into you at the grocery store or spot you in the town or even at a party where you would normally be camera ready or actually be holding one. I am saddened, but in my few years in the world and with the departure of a few loved ones, I have come to understand that 'God gives and God takes' (Job 1:21). He brings to life and puts to death (Duetoronomy 32:39), but most of all 'He gives His beloved sleep' (Ps 127:2).
Sleep well uncle Ollie x.

My earliest, most vivid memory of Uncle Ollie and Auntie Thelma was when they asked me to be their maid of honour when they got wed. I was so proud to be a part of their day in my nice yellow dress and white floral tights! i kept thinking how tall Uncle was and how tiny Auntie was, and how protective he was of her. Over the years, they have been surrogate parents to us, and as our respective families grew, they became grandparents too. There wasn't a family function that they were not present at, or involved in. My dad wouldn't take a step unless 'Uncle Kwesi Harlow' was involved! Its really hard that both our fathers have left us, waayy too soon, but as long as they are together up there, we can rest assured that heaven is better place for it. Nothing will be the same without him, we have no one now, but he lives on in our hearts, minds and souls - he is with us all the time. 2 significant moments in my immediate family are when Uncle Ollie stood in as the Father for my son in law at his traditional marriage to my daughter, and as Grandad as he traditionally named my granddaughter Anaiyah. It doesn't get any more poignant than that - Uncle Ollie playing father and grandfather to our non-ghanaian in-laws.....hmmm!
May his rest be peaceful, and Auntie Thelma, Tony and family, Julius and family, big Sis in Gh and her family all be comforted; and to the entire Abraham clan - we mourn with you at the loss of this great, great man!. The loss is great, the vacuum is deep but God is our comfort and strength, and He will carry us through this. God bless one and all

Dad, I miss you. Your departure was so sudden I sit in wonder trying to make sense of it all. You were so meticulous and methodical in your health and everything you did. As you always said 'Kwesi Anfo does what's best for Kwesi Anfo'. You encouraged everyone to actively take an interest in their daily affairs ranging from all aspects of life. You did so much and never expected anything in return. You were a great Dad, as I openly told you. I will miss all our conversations we had and shared, especially about your beloved Leeds United football team, who you finally got to see in the English Premiership.

Farewell Dad, till our paths cross in the house of the Lord. Da Yie
Love Kwesi jnr xxx

He is Gone (but never forgotten)

Shared by Pauline Appafram on March 21, 2021
You can shed tears that he is gone,
 or you can smile because he has lived;
You can close your eyes and pray that he 
will come back, Or you can open your eyes 
and see all that he has left;
Your heart can be empty because you can't 
see him, Or you can be full of the love that 
you shared;
You can turn back on tomorrow and live 
yesterday, Or you can be happy for 
tomorrow because of yesterday;
You can remember him and only that he is 
gone,  Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on;
You can cry and close your mind, be empty 
and turn your back, 
Or you can do what he would want:
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
