Africans from all over Copenhagen assembled today at the the Kirkebakken alle Vallensbæk to give Davis Yeboah a befitting Burial which he truely deserved. By Shey Tatah
Born in May 1965 in Ghana, Yeboah moved to Denmark in 1989 to face new challenges, amongst which was getting married to a lovely woman Salimatu (Sally) Yeboah from Sierra Leone. They met in 1994 and got married a year later. Davis has 4 kids, and two with the widow he just left to eternity. Davis has been a hard working and devoted citizen and christian at the same time. A role the pastor said could only come from a Good person of his calibre quoting the present cite of his Ministry in Vanløse as searched a suggested by Him. The crowd that filled the church inspired the pastor to express the joy Davis will carry along with him which is a sign of Love the people had for him. This of one of the rare events that could pull such a crowd as it was on a working day Friday, a sad one and more so in the outskirt of Copenhagen, yet the amazing people flocked the church premises. After the Rites, few speeches were made, amongst which was a tribute from the family that gave the biography of the deceased. The most powerful and touchching was a word from the wife, who promised to remained strong for the husband because she believed God loved him most. She promised to take good care of their kids and to fight a good fight he fought for the survival of the family than spend time mourning. She said she was a Ghanaian and shall remain as such. Davis was the best and wonderful husband God could ever give to her. A word of thanks came from the family representative who assured others that the final funeral day for Davis shall be organized on the 7th June and that invitations were going to be sent out with the venue confirmed. Reception followed immediately at the Church’s Hall while the condolence visits continued at the family compound in Valensbæk. Here are some pictures though affected by the reflection.
