Family of a Pastor in Dansoman who perished in a fire outbreak last week has been laid to rest Saturday.

In a tragedy comparable to what befell the Biblical Job who lost his properties and children in a test of his faithfulness to God, Pastor Ebenezer Ato Kessie lost his 31-year-old wife; 65-year-old mother-in-law, Madam Grace Ampah; his wife’s nine-year old niece, Precious Pokuaa; his two sons — Jaden, four, and Jason, three weeks, who was buried on the day he was to be christened.

The Pastor’s family was reported to have been trapped by the security burglar proof at the entrance of their room and therefore could not run out of the house while the fire raged on.

Speaking for the first time in a tribute, Pastor Kessie said he has been shattered by the tragic incident.

In his moment of grief, Pastor Kessie was enveloped in a wave of emotions.  With a white handkerchief in his hand, he occasionally wiped his face. Except for a few head nods and chit chats with his father and those around him, he said little.

In his soul-touching tribute to his wife, he said it was hard to accept her death, especially when he did not have the chance to say goodbye.

“You were taken so suddenly and so shockingly in the most horrific manner at the prime of life and most especially when it seems like an irreplaceable part of my life is gone forever.

“Linda, your death has made me sit down to reflect. It has made me put things in perspective. I am still in a state of shock, wondering if these broken pieces can be put together for me to start life again,” he said.
