Fred Teer Mop, a middle-aged Nigerian, conveys his deep sadness over his only son’s sudden death.
The grieving father, who buried his son, posted a series of heartbreaking updates on Facebook in which he openly expressed his feelings and his agony.
Fred disclosed in one of his posts that he and his spouse had prayed and waited for a male child for years.
He promised to dedicate his son to God’s service as a priest in the Catholic Church once their wish was eventually realized. Sadly, though, his son tragically died not too long ago for unknown reasons.
“My Lord my God, why have you forsaken me? I thought a day will come; then I will kneel before you oh Lord and testify of your goodness and mercy in thanksgiving and your name shall be glorified.
“Sadly, my sufferings and sacrifices have all gone in vain. You have made me a laughing stock before the enemies. Rest in peace BABA my dear son. Your death no doubt may shorten my days on earth. Go my son, am coming behind you.”
“Aondo Ter Sha Mimi yo u hemba. Dear beloved son, I and your mum prayed to God everyday for you ( male child) to come to this world through us; God answered our prayers after several years and you finally came amidst wide jubilations,” he said in part.
