Norman Cousins once said “Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live and someday when our works on this earth is done, we shall surely go back home”
After a selfless serviced to God’s work and mankind, the Vice Chairman for the Northern Zone Adventist Choir Union (NOZACU) of the SDA Church Mr. Samuel Paa Quaison has been laid to rest in Tamale over the weekend.
In a grief-stricken event which took place on Sunday at the Hospital road SDA church in the Northern regional capital, Tamale brought together loved ones from all walks of life who in one way or the other benefited from the late “Bra Paa” as he is affectionately called.
The immediate past Executive Secretary for the North Ghana Mission of the Seventh-Day Adventist church Pastor Seth Adjei-Mensa in a sermon advised that, the life and death of the late Music Director should be a lesson to all Christians and humans in the world thus being humble, enthusiastic and selfless as the late Paa Quaison.
He said, the book of Ecclesiastes 7, counseled that, man must depict the life of Jesus Christ by living a good life rather than striving for riches which he described as vanity.
“Beloved let us remember that a good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death better than the day of birth, It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death is the destiny of everyone the living should take this to heart and see the life and death of Paa as a lesson us all” He said.
The late Samuel Paa Quaison was the Music Director and the Vice Chairman for NORZACU and an instructor at the SDA keep fit club in Tamale.
He died at the Tamale Teaching Hospital on Saturday, the 9th of June 2018 after he was involved in a gory accident while returning from a trip and left behind four children.
