Komla – friend, kid brother a “member”, the Playa and a Treasure
The 18th of January will always bring sharp painful memories impossible to forget and for virtually everyone who had the privilege of knowing you they will feel your presence which coupled with your influence, your infectious spirit, your humility and your kindness that you showed everyday you were with us, as a part of their lives they will never forget!
We shared moments of genuine happiness between us which were born out of love, mutual respect for one another and common principles!
Last night I got a message from mutual friends of ours and I started reading through many of our messages to one another. You were so special.
Rest easy Brother rest as I remember the good times and regret not seeing the Great things you would have achieved had you stayed ….
