SAYING GOODBYE IS HARD TO DO
LIVE EACH MOMENT TO THE FULL
Eulogy to Graham Clark
President of the Kenya Police Association and a Dear Friend.
From His Comrades
On The Occasion Of His Funeral – 18th November 2015
In our lifetime we only have one opportunity to make a difference.
Graham was always that Gentleman who was ready by thought, word and deed, to reach out a hand when it was most needed.
His bravery is well documented by Royal Honours. His communications and responses with H.M. The Queen are legend and he was deeply passionate of his Scottish Heritage. Oh Flower of Scotland when will we see your like again.
Graham was the first Kenya Police Officer to attend the Scottish Police College at Tulliallan Castle. I followed Graham, as the first Irishman, and we often shared our experiences and pride of being there.
We were honoured to have Graham as our longest serving Association President. He did us proud in all situations, weaved his magic to resolve problems and made us smile.
Let me end this short appreciation of his many attributes, kindness and fortitude in his later years, by a Swahili farewell, a language he spoke fluently, from his beloved Kenya.
KWA HERI SASA. PUMZIKA NA AMANI. MUNGU AKUWE NAWE MAPAKA TUTAONANA TENA. (FAREWELL NOW,REST IN PEACE. GOD BE WITH YOU UNTIL WE ALL MEET AGAIN).
