Can you hear me, Chris?

Today, December 5, would have been the 43rd birthday of Christopher Opoku, founder of Footy-Ghana.com and a household name before his death. He left behind three kids and a wife, Vivian.

This is Mrs. Opoku’s note to her love, her friend, and her life:

 

I have your home made cake ready.

I have your favourite wine and the table set

Sitting here waiting.

It feels like Chris has gone outside Accra/Ghana to do commentary.

And he’ll be coming back.

I’m waiting Chris. Will you be coming back?

Can you hear me on your cloud, Chris?

I miss the strength you brought me. And the comfort it gave.

And on your birthday, my love, it’s so hard, pretending to be brave.

But I have found hidden courage. And it helps to see me through.

It quietens me and protects me. And I know it comes from you.

Here on earth we shared a life.

And as happy as it could be, I never took for granted, all you meant to me.

So I shall spend your birthday dreaming that you were here,

Helping me to wipe every silent tear.

As I shed some birthday tears typing, just remember I love you and forever will.

You, Chris, are IRREPLACEABLE.

GOD HAS YOU IN HIS KEEPING. I HAVE YOU IN MY HEART.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN CHRISTOPHER NANA OPOKU. 

PLEASE COME BACK … PLEASE.
