Tribute To Deyda

Dec 16, 2009, 12:54 PM | Article By: Nellie

The day that darkens our lives is here again, December 16, which used to be one of the happiest days in our lives because it is our dear mum’s birthday but it turned bitter. The memories of that dark Thursday will always be fresh in our minds till we meet again Pa. We keep asking ourselves who took your life and why? We try to be very strong but we sometimes find it very difficult to cope.

We wish you were here so that we will make you enjoy the fruits you’ve laboured. You fulfilled your fatherly duties. You made us proud and left us proud. Where are the wicked cowards? I wish they could come up and give their reasons for this brutal act. They are somewhere seeing us go through pain. How would they have felt if they were taken from their families in the same manner? We used to be a happy family but we are so empty, without Pa.  We believe God is going to do something sooner or later… their deeds shall follow them Inshallah.

We are, and we will always be proud to have you as our Pa. We wish you could be alive again to be awarded the best Pa in the whole world. You believed in freedom of expression and loved your profession, which you did without favour or fear. At least you completed the mission you came for.

We love and miss you Pa.
