Governor Sonko eulogises late father in special way [Videos]

Sonko's father passed away three years ago.

The medical camp at Kathiani Primary School which is opposite Sonko’s Mua Hills Home is aimed at helping families that cannot afford medical facilities due to financial challenges.

Hundreds of patients on Thursday suffering from chronic diseases benefited from the free medical camp with Sonko urging the sick to turn out in large numbers.

“I really value human life. When my late father was alive, he used to talk a lot about the importance of good health and education. Therefore, by setting up this free medical camp is a dedication to our late father,” he said.

Emotional eulogy

"Exactly three years today, you slid quietly into eternity. Time stood still but it can never erase your presence in our lives. Death may end life but not a relationship.

We remember you as a wonderful gift from God, our pillar of strength. We deeply cherish your memories of love, dedication, kindness, wisdom and generosity which will remain a guiding light to us.

As a leader, husband, father, brother, uncle, friend and for everything you were physically and still are in our hearts, your memories linger, sweetly, tenderly, fondly and truly. We miss you dearly.

Your amazing life was a blessing to us; the memory of your deeds a treasure, your passing le\u001F a void beyond words and your absence a pain beyond measure.

Although physically gone, you have always been a thought away from us.

May the Almighty rest your soul in eternal peace," Sonko wrote.
