The mother of the late General Manager of The Multimedia Group’s Joy Brands, Mercy Adzo Torkornu-Bonuedie, has expressed enormous sadness over the loss of her son, Elvis Koku Kwashie.
In a touching tribute read on her behalf, Madam Torkornu-Bonuedie thought her firstborn would be the one to read her tribute when God calls her to eternal glory and not the other way round.
“Why should l stand here today reading your tribute when I was of the view that you will gallantly stand beside my coffin to read mine. Koku, l am short of words.”
According to the mother, being her firstborn, Fo Koku, as he is called at home, “had all the love and care of his late grandmother”.
Acknowledging her ill-health, Madame Torkornu-Bonuedie reminisced about how her late son was a source of encouragement to her, keeping her fit all this while.
Eulogising her 49-year-old son, she said Elvis’ passing has “broken down my human wall, but my hope is in the Lord that you are not dead; but rather gone to rest in the bosom of our father, Abraham.”
The media doyen passed on in the late hours of Tuesday, December 28, 2021, at the University of Ghana Medical Centre after a short illness.
