Mr Palmer-Buckle said “At this juncture let me address you the young ones here present more especially   Zanetor, Yaa Asantewaa, Amina and Kimathi.

“Jerry, your dear father is no more. You will miss him greatly because only you knew him  differently from all other  persons.

“Dear Madam Nana Konadu, you will greatly miss him with whom you share over six decades of life . I hear it all started even earlier in Achimota School. No one knew Jerry better than you  did.

“God gave him, to you and you loved him and shared his dreams and his life projects . Our Lord Jesus Christ the savior is by your side and he says to you that dear family, blessed are you who mourn for you will be comforted . May God comfort you, never forget to pray in times of loneliness and sorrow.”
