Actress Yvonne Nelson loses dad

Ghanaian actress and producer, Yvonne Nelson took to Instagram to reveal that her estranged dad passed on this month, a few weeks after she met him. She wrote:

Rest In Peace Father ❤. This picture was taken on the 6th of this month..., i have only two pictures with my Father, and this is one of them.....so much I wanted to talk about.....so much I wanted to say.....but God knows best....I know you are in HEAVEN......I know we'll meet again and talk about it all.....there were days I cried to my mum to bring me to yours......there were days I couldn't wait to see you and talk to you just for a minute....I longed to hold your hand.....I longed to sit on your lap.....I longed for all of that......can we still do that when I see you in HEAVEN?? Can we start all over again?? Can we correct the mistakes??? I longed for you so much. I have nothing but love for you.......❤in His last days....he always mentioned God in everything he said...why?? Because there's no one GREATER 🙏🏽 sleep well father #MRNELSON
Recall that Yvonne once revealed she has a non-existent relationship with her dad. According to her: 
"My dad was not a part of my life because he wasn’t there for me. So, I almost do not say anything about him because there is no relationship or love between us. My dad is like any other person out there because I didn’t have a chance to develop a relationship with him. We have each other’s phone numbers and he calls me when he feels like talking to me. It always feels like talking to a random person because there are absolutely no feelings whatsoever."
Speaking on the possibility of forgiving her dad, Nelson says:
"Sometimes our society makes it hard for us talk about things like this. But, it’s my story and I don’t have any other way to say it and I don’t want to sugar-coat it. He was never a part of my life and it is quiet unfortunate. We actually have an ‘okay’ relationship and it’s not like I won’t talk to him if I see him today. But it ends there because we do not have a relationship. Talking to him is akin to talking to someone you don’t know."
Nelson, so fond of sharing photos of her mum, has never sugarcoated the fact that she owes everything to her mother who basically raised her as a single mother.
