Alas! It is true, Elder Dennis is not among the living

OMG! how I wished my ears deceived me, but lo, my wish is not His wish, neither are my ways His ways. I have doubted the exit of my friend, colleague and elder ever sinceI heard the news and even wrote on my blog that "till I see your casket being lowered 6 feet down, I will continue to doubt your death", but yesterday, I saw it all with my mortal eyes the final service and burial of my elder and even followed till almost every body left the grave yard.

The church auditorium was filled to capacity, colleagues from the Ghana Revenue Authority where he worked since 1994, old school mates, high powered delegation from the church's head quarters, fellow elders, deacons and deaconesses, all members of the church came to bid farewell to a man who gave his life in the service of God. My tears refused pleas from friends and flowed freely down my cheeks.

His biography and tributes were presented by those he shared his life with; amongst them included tributes from his wife, siblings, cousins, nephews and nieces, old school mates, the Ghana Revenue Authority, Elders/Deacons/Deaconesses, Men's Fellowship and the Word Miracle Church International. There wasn't a tribute from his daughter because she is barely 5 months old.

Delivering the burial sermon, the General  Secretary and national overseer of the Word Miracle Church International, Bishop Hansel Agyei Frimpong, urged all those gathered to be circumspect about life and that the impact one is able to make  in life is what matters and not how long one lives. He cited Jesus who lived for only 33 years but has impacted His generation of which we are witnesses.  He said Dennis gave his life to the church bringing smiles and comfort to the depressed.
His body was then conveyed to the Awudome public cemetary where he was laid to eternal rest.

Dennis, we will continue to celebrate your life because you are worth it. SLEEP WELL.
