To the Ankrah Family, we know how much Ntate Victor meant to you all, we had the opportunity to witness this special bond that you shared, from the meals that Arnold prepared, to the setting of the table by Claudia and Georgina. How the family lit up with the arrival of Alexa and her Mom. What we take condolence in is we saw how much Ntate Victor loved each one of you and how much you loved him back. The bond shared by Me Palm and Ntate Victor was incomparable a match made in heaven, one that was to be copied by every person and couple that new them. Ntate Victor was a true father to all, and wanted the best for each person that crossed their path. He rewarded good work from buying sweets to our daughter and son to say well done in passing a test, to a pat on the back for passing an interview. We laughed together, sang together, now we celebrate his life and still together. He truly wanted the best for us P3, is what we would say when we got it right, and when we didn't we would try again using another approach, the whole aim was to beat the rat race "Rich Dad Poor Dad". I still can hear the way he stretched out the word Ntate (Ntaaateee). Ntate Ankrah was a father figure who would always advise us on work issues, motivated us and always saying we would make it. We can fill two whole books about Ntate Victor, it is just too soon to be writing this way, but as we say "May Gods will be Done". Me Palm you can do all through Christ who strengthens us. The Lord we serve is never failing, He will stand by you and we will too. With love from the Makumbi family.

Dear Ankrah Family,
Words cannot describe the pain coming from the sting of death of our beloved and dear friend, colleague, mentor, motivator and confidant, Dr Ankrah. The unmatched and good legacy left behind by Dr Ankrah speaks for itself at a personal, family, community and work environment. Flowers may wither but the fond memories of Dr Ankrah will remain alive with us forever. Farewell my brother and friend

I met Victor Ankrah in 1973 our freshman year at Accra Academy. Victor had a special quality that caught my attention. I was an extrovert and a bit noisy. Victor was an introvert and very quiet. Victor made being an introvert seem in vogue. He had many special qualities. Victor was gifted. Very smart yet humble and soft spoken. He was a man of few words but the little he says adds the most value to discussions. As our friendship developed, victor became my math tutor, my counselor and a very good friend. We had plans to meet in Ghana but the good LORD has better plans for you. Victor rest in perfect peace till we meet again.

Dear Ankrah family,
I was deeply saddened and shocked by the news of Victor's passing. It seems surreal as it feels like only yesterday that I was in his company (UNICEF Lesotho). I can only imagine what you as family are going through at this time. Victor was rare in this world -- calm, measured, supportive, kind, and humble. He had a dignified presence that will stay with me for a long time. It was a deep pleasure and honor to have known him, and through him to have met his family. Wishing you all such strength in this trying time. Warmly, Naseem

The news get to me as a very sad one because I was the one driving him and his lovely wife around in Nigeria and he was actually getting strong before leaving Nigeria but all the same I send my condolence to the family and I pray that God Almighty gives the family the gratitude to bear the loss.

I could not not believe my good friend Victor Bleoobi 78 is no more. Reading from his own phone that Victor had passed, I wondered if it was a dream how can he send message from his own phone that he was no more. But really it was as was confirmed by his beloved wife. That morning was terrible for all Bleoobii 78. Victor was a fine gentleman amongst us very soft spoken and full of wisdom. I cant say much as I grieve my friend. Victor your good deeds will remain with us for a long time to come.

Dear Ankrah Family
It is indeed with great sadness and a very heavy heart that I am sending you this note. Victor was a brother, a father, a colleague and a counsellor to many in the office (UNICEF Lesotho Country Office). I will particularly always remember his soft smile and soft voice even when things were hot, his voice was always soft. He was my supervisor when death snatched him away from us, so I will miss his guidance. May God give you more strength to deal with this great loss. May He grant you His comfort during this trying time as He alone knows the measure you need.
