"This day was never complete without me showing you how much I love and appreciate all you have done for me. There was no birthday without the kiss on your cheeks. Why you chose to leave me the same week I celebrate my birthday is what I'm struggling to understand," Appiah said in the emotional post.

Today is my birthday and I should be celebrating but instead I'm mourning. Mourning the very person who gives me so much love and joy. For I always see 24th December as a day to celebrate you instead of me because you made it possible. This day was never complete without me showing you how much I love and appreciate all you have done for me. There was no birthday without the kiss on your cheeks. Why you chose to leave me the same week I celebrate my birthday is what i'm struggling to understand. 4 days ago I knew I will be marking this day with you and today you are gone. God knows best. I dedicate my day to you even in your absence. I've asked God to give you my birthday kiss for me. Love you mummy. Rest in perfect peace. #itiswell🙏🏿
