PART I - FILING PAST AND BURIAL SERVICE
Psalm 34:18 - 'The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.'
Where do I start?
Tara, I wish you knew how I feel right now. Why exit and leave me alone to handle it all?
Baaba, as I affectionately called her, and I got married in the year 2015. Before then, we had known each other for a little over 22 years. Ours was one of friendship and love. One of joy, understanding and dedication.
Baaba was kind, quiet, humble, beautiful and gorgeous. Everyone she came into contact with left with a part of her; her beautiful smile.
Tara, we had plans for our kids. We wanted to both see them grow into adults and be successful in life. How do I explain your passing to them? Their constant questions about your whereabouts are ones I struggle to explain. They miss you and so do I. We are however comforted that you are in a better place.
During our 8 years of marriage, as with every typical marriage, we had our fair share of love and misunderstandings. Our misunderstandings rather made our union stronger and stronger. We understood each other more as our marriage aged and every moment we shared was precious to us and the children.
I wish I had the power to bring you back, Baaba. I am broken and in pain. Your kind heart and the love you shared with me and our beautiful children will stay with us forever.
May the good Lord keep you and save you a place as you embark on your journey to eternity.
LOVE YOU, TARA.
Mr. James Hooper

In Life, we loved you dearly, In death we Love you In our hearts you hold a place,that no one could ever fill. You are near even if we don’t see you, You are with us even if you are far away You are in our Heart, in our Thoughts and in our Life Always.
Death has taken you from us but who are we to question God on this sudden tragic to the entire family.
Abokuma, as we affectionately call you , was a very calm and a firm person full of life.
We lived continuously, together for 18 years, from 1984 in Takoradi to Ho in 1990 and back to Accra in 1997 until you traveled to the UK in 2002. The bond and love we shared during this period was great and memorable one full of love:
We schooled together, we worshiped together, we played together, we cooked and cleaned the house together and we were even punished by Mum and Dad together under one roof. Tara, can you believe we have shared some friends from our infancy to date?
We still remember how Mum will advise us and we will go to our rooms and be laughing that she talks too much. We thought at that age we know it all. In fact, our youthful days together were memorable and admired by many.
Tara Baby! Your love for fashion, entertainment, and sports during this period was exceptional.
Upon your return to Ghana in 2013, we continued this bond until you married in 2015 and have to start a new family with Jeffrey, of which we were all happy for you.
Your weekend visit to us with Michele was memorable because our kids played together. That’s how we planned to bring the children together on special occasions for them to have that bond. But what Happened? Hmmm…..
Abokuma, you and our God knew how much we cared and have good intentions for you.
