"My family thanks God for how my dad loved his wife for over 50 years and how he taught his children to be tough, entrepreneurial and hard-working. Psalm 90:10 says seventy years are given to us. He lived until 77 and such an honorable life it was," she told YEN.com.gh.
She added that her father's life was worth celebrating because his last wish was to see his daughters break boundaries and enlarge their territory.
