The children of the late former UN Boss, Kofi Atta Annan, struggled to hold back their tears as they paid emotional tributes to their departing father.
Ama Annan Adedeji in her tribute said their father was a good man and always welcoming to everyone he met.
According to Ama Annan who had earlier cried at seeing her father’s body, their father spoke the truth and was very peace-loving.
Below are her last words to her father
“My Dearest Daddy,
I do not know where to begin but I have never truly understood the meaning of the words “I miss you” until now.
I cannot believe I will never see you again, listen to your advice or reprimand as the case may be.
Thank you for believing in me, your unwavering support and most of all for showing me how to live by letting me watch you! I will do my best to make you proud as you watch over us as a guardian angel.
My father was very special in my life, He taught us to appreciate whatever we had whether good or bad because someone somewhere would wish to have it
I will ensure that “alert” Adelano never forgets you and knows what a great human being you are!
There is no such thing as a goodbye, just a date and time when I am sending you ahead to prepare a place in the sun with the certainty that, someday, I will join you when my life is done!
I am very lucky to have [had] such a man as my father.
Love you, Daddy…until we meet again!
