I will remember Pierre for his hospitality; at the store, the restaurant and on the radio. He warmly welcomed others and shared with us. Thanks for asking me to be a model in the African fashion shows at the restaurant many years ago. My condolences to the family. Madison is poorer without Pierre.

Dear Elinor,
It was with a heavy heart that I read of Pierre's passing. Too many of the pillars of the early soccer world are leaving us. I know Gray would greatly mourn his loss as well were he still alive. We all loved Pierre and remember him with great fondness. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts as you navigate these difficult waters. Take care.

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of Mr. Gbedey. No words could ever convey the pain of your heart, but our loving Creator and a Heavenly Father does know. He has promised very soon to bring and end to this enemy, death, and all the things that bring our hearts pain-Hosea 13:14. Until then please find that "He is close to the broken hearted and those crushed in spirit he saves"-Psalm 34:18. It is my hope that these passages along with your loving memory of Mr Gbedey comfort your heart and bring you a measure of peace during this most difficult time.
