Gambia: Tribute To Uncle George: The Demise Of An Icon


Uncle George:

I still can’t believe I am writing a tribute because of your passing. Words cannot describe this difficult moment, but if this is the last time I get to say goodbye then I know I will do so with the knowledge that I consider myself blessed to have lived this life of knowing you.

You touched so many lives by your selfless and countless acts of kindness, always giving and never expecting any favours in return. Your dedication to a cause was what set you apart. For every institution you worked for, you laid the path for others to succeed.

 The benefits of your hard work is a living testimony for the so many young men and women you took under your wings at a personal and professional level.
Uncle, you were and will always be an inspiration to myself and anyone who worked with you. 

While I mourn today, I also take comfort in the fact that your mission on earth would have been fulfilled. I thank the Lord for your life and bade you farewell until we meet again,
