Tribute to late Deyda Hydara by Nellie Touray

Dec 16, 2011, 1:07 PM

The day that darkened our lives is here again, 16th December. It used to be the happiest day in our lives; it is my dear mum’s birthday. We used to enjoy and make the day a memorable one.

The Point newspaper was inaugurated on this very day, to show how he cared for our dear mum and his family. We keep asking ourselves questions we will never have answers to; Why our dear dad?

I don’t think there is anything worth taking a person’s life for. Where are they, the murderers? I wish they could give us just one genuine reason for taking him away from us.

We try to cope with the fact that he is no more, but sometimes we find it very tough and unbearable. We don’t care what people say or think, we loved you as a Dad. We are very grateful you fulfilled your duties as head of the family, and also you did your job without fear or favour.

You lived a worthy live which we are proud of.

Your cruel murderers - are they happy now that they have taken your live? God is waiting for them. They have left us with a pain we will be struggling with for the rest of our lives. Till we meet again, we love and miss you a lot Pa.
