You didn’t go alone, part of me went with you – Widow of Christian Atsu
The wife of the late Black Stars player, Marie-Claire Rupio has expressed sorrow for the loss of her husband, Christian Atsu.
In a tribute, the widow said her life has not been the same since she lost her beloved husband.
While professing her love for the former Hatayspor player even in death, Marie-Claire Rupio said she will use the love from Christian Atsu to be her guide.
“In life, I love you dearly. In death, I do the same. It breaks my heart to lose you. You did not go alone, for part of me went with you.
“Your love is still my guide, and though I cannot see you are always on my side. You were always so full of life,” she said on Friday.
The widow further noted that “I see you in our children’s smile. You are never really gone as part of you is within them. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. But as you always say, God win.”
Atsu, 31, was found dead on February 18, 2023, following the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria on February 6, which killed more than 50,000 people in both countries.
His last club was the Hatayspor club.
