One of the most painful things in this world is to lose your beloved through death. Though death is inevitable, when it strikes, it can bring everything to a standstill.

This is the case of a 31-year-old Ghanaian hairdresser, who died at Tema in the Greater Accra region just days after he got into a fight with someone at his village, YEN.com.gh can report.
The hairdresser, whose real name is Kingsley Ocansey, is popularly referred to as Larry by his friends, clients and loved ones.
A social media user, Agye Man, narrated how the event unfolded in a heart-wrenching Facebook post.
Agye Man wrote that he had gone to Larry's shop to style his hair only to find that some people in mourning clothes had gathered in front of the shop.
He said he quickly determined that something was wrong and asked one of the mourners to explain what had happened.
Agye Man said it was then that the lady broke the news to him that Larry had died. The Facebook user quoted the lady as saying that:
"He [Larry] went to his village for a funeral and picked a fight with the wrong person there. When he was ready to come back to Tema, he couldn't find his slipper for a while. The slipper resurfaced after a few hours. Larry grabbed that and came to Tema. When he got here he got some leaves, prayed over the slippers and wore it. The next day, Larry was terribly sick. When they sent him to the hospital they were told there was no blood in his system and all his organs were condemned. Larry died a few days later."
