Thank you so much to all my friends and colleagues who supported us with their presence, their love,their gifts and above all their prayers as we laid our father to rest.
May God bless you all. I appreciate you guys from the bottom of my great.
The bereaved movie maker had taken to social media to pen a tribute to her late father, expressing how hard it is to lose a parent despite being brave about the eventuality of their death.
One is never prepared for the death of a parent. Even when they’re ill, no matter how one has braced up for the eventuality of their passing, the grief still hits hard.
And so I am left grieving, with the weight of this loss resting on my already broken heart.
But in all things, we will continue to thank God for a life well spent and fulfilled. You have ran your race, Jesus has taken you back home to rest.
In the end, God’s will always prevails. Adieu Papa, we will definitely meet again on the resurrection day.😢😢 Your Adiagha
