Lamentations of a husband - 6 January 2017


Many people refer to the date of their loved one's death as an anniversary. I can't bring myself to do it. 13th January 2016 will forever be the date that my light and soul mate went home to rest.

Sharon Rudder-Oppong

The word "anniversary" has an intended association with joy, celebration, and happiness; but to me , it once again brings back this feeling of emptiness, grief and sorrow; this emptiness and blow is cushioned and held together by my association with my children ,family and loved ones .

None of us ever imagined having to say good-bye so soon to Sharon, so suddenly. I still remember going to visit her on Monday the 12th after work and left around 8:30pm to pick up the kids. Her smile, goodbye kiss and her feeble words "see you tomorrow if you can" when I left still imprinted on my mind.

13th January 2017; creeping up is day filled with dread and loaded with dismal realisations for it is unimaginable that she has been gone that long. Life has continued to go on but though I may seem strong from the outside; deep down I feel frozen and crushed.

Days have come and gone, and yet I feel like nothing has changed. My crowning personal accomplishment is that I wake up every day and go to work, care for my young girls whilst yearn and crave every day for this beautiful and amazing soul.

One whole year without Sharon; who gave my life meaning and filled my heart with unimaginable amount of love and care. So how am I supposed to acknowledge this dreaded day? The answer to this only lies within each and every one of us, and it is my hope that we all will and I will one day finally be at peace with the loss of my Dear wife, soul mate and friend.

Sharon, Gods very own nightingale, my dear wife; still singing on almost a year. MAY HER SOUL CONTINUE TO REST IN PERFECT PEACE. AMEN



A family is a gift that lasts forever.


The love of a family is life's greatest blessing.


I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13
