“I am happy Yesutor received Christ before her departure and we must all allow God to judge her in His own wisdom,” he said.
Uncle to the late Yesutor, Edward Dalmeida, described her death as a big blow to the family as she “was a bread winner in the family.”
She was born on September 30, 1989 at Denu Hedranawo to Abraham Lorlornyo Akpalu (late), and Madam Florence Afi Kumordzi, a businesswoman.
