DOWN MEMORY LANE OF THE LATE FRANCIS NII NORTEY CLAYLAND VANDERPUIJE ORGLE

In loving memory of Our Teacher, Friend, Family and Cheer leader.

Hey King Tokoli,

BIB Band (TV3 Musical Show- 10 years ago) Here you are doing what you love most!

It’s been a long time. I’m sorry I haven’t said “Hello”. I don’t want to blame it on work or frivolities. Neither will I blame it on the current situation in the world. I had to wake up again from the dream of not seeing you physically and talking to you again. I will have to rely on my blog to convey messages from myself and friends to you.

Emmanuel Asare Mensah, says i should tell you none of us did bad.. we’ve had our struggles but we are all turning to be great people and after a decade we are still one and together like we’ve always been…

I hope you still remember James Robertson? Yeah, I know memories of him will be about Graceland Cadet. He says I should remind you we shall meet again.

Arnold Afedzie!!! Tokoli, I know you don’t joke with this young man. He made you proud. He says I should let you know that you are a man who taught him how to be self confident
A man of few words but lots of actions.
Forever in my heart once a soldier always a soldier.

And guess who is still loving music? Desmond Begah. I guess you really did well by teaching him how to read the notes in music well. He is also saying you were a great man and a good tutor. You made him appreciate music and the musical instrument. Your way of approaching matters was very professional and always a man of many skills and intellect.

BIB Band (Bands alive Crew)

Afro Moses and BIB Band

You know, I have a lot to tell you about Linda Amoni. That name rings a bell eh? She says I should tell you she loves you. She remembers when you used to worry her and walk her through Kaneshie market, making her angry, talking about Accra Academy Boys, Was it a mere coincidence she once taught there? She enjoyed those moments. Guess what? Her Facebook password bears the name you used to tease her with in school. You made an impact in her life. Now, no more shyness or timidity. She has grown and you should see her. She miss you so much.

Do you still remember one of your favorite? Benedicta Naa dedei Armah, she says, You left without a good bye. You encouraged her to be the best. She grew up to be an ambitious woman all thanks to you. She misses you everyday
And can’t get over the pain
Keep resting,Thanks for being there and doing the most for me
And guess what? She still has the success card you got her for BECE. Forever in my heart ❤️

Yes! And Alfred Bortey couldn’t hold himself when I asked him. He says, I should let you Know that, “you are a man with strict discernment.
Not just great talent but I believe he was carefully crafted for all he did.How I wish I could give him a space in the students companion or in the book of Bible stories.A man who was willing to build for, with and I’m me what I needed to be a man…
The man I am today is grateful for the little he invested in the boy i didn’t see any potential in.I speak of a man who cared for us as though he had no life of his own.He was there for everybody, and there was no somebody who he never blessed.A man who boxed up all virtues and sealed it with discipline.I can only imagine what the world would have been for us if he were here.
He would have bought us a heaven when we needed it, even invite will take trading his brain tissues.
Love you Tokoli…❤️
Live on in my heart❤️”

“King Tokoli Can you come back with the ‘Morale?'” Derrick Dadzie says I should ask you.

*******************************

10 years ago, King Tokoli you left us without a last roar like you used to do with the Cadet Corps.

10 years ago, you left us without making us laugh out loud at your Jokes and humorous nature.

And 10 years ago, we had to weep at your graveyard. Damn! We can’t seem to get you out of our mind and heart.We dusted off memories of you yearly, monthly and daily on social media. Believing you are there laughing and smiling at them.

Your “morale” and approach towards life was Worthy of emulation. You taught us well Uncle Francis.
Your gentle face and patient smile

With sadness we recall,
You had a kind word for each of us and made us feel like family ❤️.

We, joining the Choir, school band, Cadet Corps, back then in Graceland International School wasn’t just a show off but for the greater good!

And these made us what we are now. We learned to speak out, strength, courage to face our fears, resilience, and selflessness.

Now, we can boast. Yes, Tokoli we boast of our Current achievement. Look at us now: Turning into Bankers, Auditors, Administrators, Print Journalist, enterpreneurs, Fashion Designers, Masters Students, and the likes.

The voice is mute and stilled the heart
That loved us well and true,
Ah, bitter was the trial to part
From one so good as you.
You are not forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be,
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
As time goes by we miss you more.
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can fill your empty place

Pain is when you see your talkative teacher and friend lose his ability to speak.
Pain is when you see tears in your eyes because he won’t come back.
Pain is when you do not recognize that tall and muscular friend

Because an illness has changed him into someone you do not recognize.

Pain is when your heart breaks daily because Francis Van-Orgle has slipped away without saying goodbye to us.

10 years…still fresh in our mind. Keep Resting Well ☺️. Till we meet again.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14[13]But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
[14]For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

We love you 😩😩

  1. Great Job Linda. He was a brother, friend at home and church and a teacher at Cynrhomado Academy. Through him i got to know some of these people testifying of his ways. The little time we spent together way back, i can bear testimony of his impact in the lives of these ones.
    I believe if i should ask my mates too about his impact in their lives, it won’t be different. He was a great person. His soul rest in peace and to you, Congrats once again

    1. Hmm Nii Addo. It hasn’t been easy for me too. 10 years ago I had to weep and ask why he left without saying anything to me. We were very close and he was find of me too. His life and funny ways can’t be forgotten you know… He used to worry and tease me a lot. His firlty nature was charming. Hmmm I really miss him and can’t stop thinking 😔 why he left! 😩
