The wife of the late General Manager of The Multimedia Group’s Joy Brands, Cynthia Kwashie has eulogised her husband, Elvis Koku Kwashie for his faithfulness and undying love in their relationship.
According to Mrs Kwashie, the consistent support provided by her late husband was “the light of my life” and continues to shine even in his death.
In a heartfelt tribute, the widow described her 19-year-long partner as “my great friend, in fact, my best friend, my source of strength, my intercessor, dependable partner, my teacher, life coach and many more.”
“Koku, you were a good father, passionate and consummate professional in your field of work, a great man of God, but to me, you were the husband of my youth, and your ability to combine all these responsibilities effortlessly blows my mind and makes me love you more,” she said.
Elvis Koku Kwashie passed in the late hours of Tuesday, December 28, after a short illness at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC).
Reminiscing the last moments of the late Manager, the widow said she had no idea that rushing her husband to the hospital was going to be the end of their friendship.
“I was hopeful you were going to come back home strong,” she said in the tribute.
Following the sad incident, the beloved wife said it has been a traumatic couple of months.
According to Mrs Kwashie, the sudden demise of her beloved husband has changed the trajectory of their knit-tight family of five.
“I was certain that we would grow old together and watch the children finish their education, start working and get married then we can enjoy the rest of our lives together, but Koku, you left us in the middle of the ocean with just a canoe without a paddle.
“How am I going to get to the shore with Seyram, Sedem and Senam, whom you loved with your life and cared so much about?” she quizzed.
She, however, took solace in the words of the Holy Book.
She believed that divine intervention will always see them through despite the raging tempest life has thrown at the bereaved family.
“Koku, rest in the bosom of your maker, but please promise never to forget me, Seyram, Sedem and Senam. I will continue to nurture them in the ways of the Lord, and I know that the Lord that you served whole heartedly will be with us.
“My husband rest peacefully in the Bosom of the Almighty God,” she concluded.
