I had the pleasure of working with Yaw for a few years. And, in those few years, I've never met a kinder, gentler, caring colleague and person. God bless his beautiful family. And, God bless my friend, Yaw.

An extremely intelligent, caring and expert care giver but most of all, a loving friend. Rest in God, my brother.
