Marie-Claire Rupio, wife of former Black Stars winger Christian Atsu has penned down a touching and emotional tribute to her late husband as he joins his Maker today.
Atsu was a victim of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria on February 6, 2023.
A burial and thanksgiving service is being held at the Forecourt of the State House for family, friends and loved ones to pay their final respect.
Marie-Claire Rupio’s tribute to her husband read;
Lying before me today is the mortal remains of a beloved father and husband. I knew little that morning that God is going to call you home. In life, I love you dearly. In death I do the same. It breaks my heart to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of me went with you.
Your love is still my guide, and though I cannot see you
You are always on my side.
You were always so full of life. You seemed to be immortal.
Your smile, your love, I see you in our children’s smile.
You are never really gone as
part of you is within them.
You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.
But as you always say, God win.
In Love, your wife.
