Oseini Ateh Amui, April 11, 2015 I pray you rest in peace Uncle. You truly will be missed. Nana Antwi, April 11, 2015 Kwadwo, Smart, hard-working, honest, warm-hearted, positive, dedicated, and so on. You have all the good traits in you! We were so lucky to have you in our team for the past three years! You have been a great asset and left footprints in many of our key reports. Your big smile, loud laughter and deep voice, were vivid just like yesterday. I remember on some weekends, when there was an incident or inquiry from users on your report, you would come online to check it out right away; when other teammates were struggled with projects, you were always available to offer help and brilliant ideas. You loved life so much. Many days you went to the gym during lunch time; you gave rides to a few guys to Starbucks at 3 pm for a quick break to get refreshed. You kept a few fruits on the desk, but were too busy to finish them before you took off. I cannot believe that God took you to heaven so soon. Rest in Perfect Peace, my dear friend! You will be missed by your Cameron family! Yuling Li, April 11, 2015 Amanks,the gentleman, you have done your part on this earth! The good Lord knows best. We will definitely miss your engaging and gentle smile, but the ways and thoughts of our Maker are not the same as ours...He knows best!

MAY THE LORD BE WITH YOU! AMEN... DINAH ..., April 9, 2015 You were the best uncle a girl could ever have. It's so hard to believe you are gone forever. I will always love you Uncle and you will forever be in my heart. Rest in Peace Uncle Pamela Asenso, April 9, 2015  I'll always remember what a special person you were to us. You left us all too soon, wish RIP meant Return If Possible but God knows why..you will always remain in our hearts forever. We love you....UNCLE Elaine Asenso, April 9, 2015 Too Early Happened, Rest in Peace My Dear Friend. krishna Reddy Thallapaka, April 9, 2015 I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear loved one. I lost my father last year and something that comforts me is that Jesus promised at John 5:28,29 that the day is coming when he is going to resurrect all those in the grave. Until then, it is just like they are sleeping. (John 11:11-14) I hope that your family will find comfort in this too. Audra Chapmon (Community Volunteer), April 8, 2015 Amankwa, very, very sad that you had to take leave of us so soon. The pleasant memories accrued over our common years in school will continue to warm our hearts and remind us that we have a friend on the 'other side'. Rest well 'old boy'. hermann sintim-aboagye, April 8, 2015 I will forever miss you uncle. You will always have a special place in my heart and will never be forgotten. I love you very much. Rest in perfect peace Nicole-Marie Poku, April 8, 2015 "A thousand thoughts going through my mind; A million questions never to be answered; If tears could flow to make a river; I would make a million rivers for you". Amanks, exactly 20 years ago you filled that vacuum in my life. Your support, care, and encouragement made me lift up my head and stand on my feet. Suddenly you are gone, gone forever from our lives. Your voice still rings in my years, "ete sen, obiara ho ye". It's soo, sooooo painful it makes me numbed. With a broken, shattered heart I bid you farewell. You will forever remain in my heart. May your sweet, gentle soul rest in the Lord. Doris Agyeiwah Kokuma, April 8, 2015 Heavily, Heavily! Amanks, May you rest in perfect peace! And may it comfort the children and family to know that death cannot diminish the important ways that Amanks touched their lives, that grief cannot take away the happiness they all shared, that sorrow will fade in time... but love remains forever. With our deepest sympathy, Alan & Constance Whittaker, April 7, 2015 Amanks, you have gone too soon, but who are we to question God. We love you but God loves you more. May He keep you with His Saints where you belong. Sleep well baby brother , Rest in peace my lovely until we meet again. Love you forever and day. Juliana Owusu, April 7, 2015 Rest in perfect peace my brother. Bobby France, April 7, 2015 "God saw you getting tired And a cure was not to be So He put His arms around you And whispered, “Come home to me” With tearful eyes we watched As you slowly slipped away And though we cared about you dearly We couldn’t make you stay Your golden heart stopped beating Your tired hands put to rest God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best" We have lost a great person here at Cameron. You weren’t just another co-worker; you were my mentor and motivator Though you are gone, you will forever be in my heart. Kwadwo, Rest in Peace.
