  1. That imposing mysterious ship that looms temporarily in the shadows, that always appears creeping like a snail out of nowhere in countries far and near, that unearthly ship, whose steely-eyed Captain beckons her travelers to embark and then disappears quickly into the unfathomable boundless oceans has reached our shores once again and has dropped its anchor for the night as its mariners await in silence for one of our countrymen to undertake a journey of no return, that is offered only once to every living, breathing human being here on our majestic earth.

    Farewell gentle Traveler – we thank you Mr Francis for your service to our country, your family, friends and humanity as a whole. May you have a smooth sailing over the Eternal waves that lead all men and women towards the everlasting glittering shores of grace and tremendous throne of our Omnipotent merciful God.

  2. I will miss him. We were in Holy Trinity Secondary School Kenema together. May his soul rest in peace. I wonder what happened to Paul Francis, his younger brother.
