You came into our lives, when some five to six years ago Daddy Kofi called me that he needed money to attend to an urgent need. It was to help you get your lens for sight. He later in the day gave me your full profile and said you were the latest addition to the Nutty family.
Well I finally met you and you became part of the family. You were naturally shy and a private person. But once you got accustomed to us as family, you opened up. I still remember your first Christmas family meeting with us, and how you expressed your exasperation about how people looked down on you and mistreated you due to your religious inclination. We as a family however, accepted you as you were and worked on you together as a family. Together we saw your progression in all aspects of your life. Our Cutie, Our Little Jane, shy and somewhat timid, was gradually becoming that bold and confident sociable young woman we all desired and prayed for. When you were afraid that your heart could be broken, we gave the assurance that it was part of life. Our family meetings were serious and yet happy moments for us all. Indeed, our last was two years ago. You had lots of activities that day, but you made it a point to be there for a couple of hours. And dear, we still keep looking at the pictures we took at all the family meetings, still trying to grasp that you are gone; and need we say tooooooo soon! It’s all we have of you now. Daddy and I had discussed that we needed to meet up this year, but I shudder to think of this meeting!
News of your demise has hit us real hard dear, especially because of the way we found out. Its shocking!
Daddy misses his little girl and can’t believe she’s gone.
Mummy says you’ve rendered her numb with coldness.
Aunty Audrey heard someone narrating the accident, little did she know it was you.
Aunty Nana Oye can’t believe it’s true.
Uncle Seli just asked, ” Is that our Little Jane?”
Doreen, Ama Serwaa, Dufie, Nana Serwaa, Ohui and Rose say, ” Jane, you’ll never walk alone!”
Dela, DeeDee and Wenzel say they don’t believe your gentle soul is gone!
Our Cutie, words elude us, yet our hearts yearn to say a lot. We will cherish the moments we shared together; we will remember all the family meetings we had. We really wish we could hug you one more time and say how much we love you!
Jane, Damirifa Due!
Maa Abena,Due, Due ne amanehunu!!
Our Little Angel Cutie, Rest in perfect peace!!!
