A heartbroken father decided to share his pain with the world exactly one year after losing his 5-month-old son to the cold hands of death.
According to a letter he sent in to Laila'sblog, his son who would have been a year and five months old on this day, January 16, died after a brief illness.
According to the father of two children, since his son Joel passed on, life has not remained the same as he is even having troubles in his marriage, and has been separated from his wife.
See his touching tribute below:
Hi Laila. Good evening how was your weekend? Today is a year my five months old son left us and I wrote like a letter to him, I'm just trying to remember my guy. Would be nice if it can go on your blog.
It's a year already? You left us at about 1:15pm Saturday January 16th 2016. A lot has happened since your absence for reasons best known to her (your mum). Guess we have fallen out of love for each other. I and ur mum are already going through a separation but I'm trying so hard to keep it away from your elder ones.

Well your elder brother and sister are doing great even if I haven't seen or spoken to them since December 25th last year. Your brother Nathan likes babies, wants to get close to them, I know he kind of remembers a baby in the house and your elder sister Pearl, she is still the madam of the house sometimes telling what to do. Lol
Would have loved to show them your pictures but where will I tell them you went to? Maybe in some years time when they would understand. Some people may criticise my letter to you, don't blame them it's the only way I could keep my Sanity.
I remember carrying you in my arms and driving you to the hospital shirtless and bare footed, Joel I have never been so scared in my entire life calling you to stay with me, you should not leave but you still did the next day.
Grandma grandma as ur elder ones call your grandmother will refer you to "always smiling baby" you always did smile and even at just five Months you spent with us you still touched lives. Missed you so badly Joel wish you had stayed. I will NEVER forget you, yes I know, HE Loves you more but the fact remains I still Love U. Continue to rest in peace Son."
Chai! RIP little one.
