Prof was a great lecturer ,renal physiology was probably my favorite lecture in medical science . I was also privileged to have you as my consultant during internal medicine rotation for my housemanship , your weekly wards were always enlightening and educative .
The last time I saw you was at the airport late 2019 . How I wish I had made time to chat with you that day
God keep you in his bosom Sir and Rest In Peace .

Professor Plange-Rhule was always positive about everything and every situation. He would always find the positive aspect of everything.
He always would say "ebeye yie" (it shall be well).
Its soo hard to accept this, but the God Lord knows best.
Prof, rest in perfect peace.
My condolence to Maa Gyikua and my sisters.

Jacob lived and died for country. He committed so much of himself to improve higher medical education and professional training through the medium of the College and its Faculties. His sacrifice will not be in vain. Rest in Perfect Peace.

Meeting and knowing Prof in the course of my life journey was something unthinkable.
He was a man with few words but impactful actions. He was selfless and dedication man, always having solutions to problems.
I broke down when I heard of your journey to the father. You are a true legend and as said, legends don't die...
May the Lord keep you safe till we meet one-day.
My family is grateful, we love you.
Your family loves you.
Ghana loves you.

I am really still in Shock. And still lost for words. A fantastic man who makes things happen. A humble academician, intelligent teacher and innovator with vision. He is loved by all who know him. He sees beyond the impossible. The man who made the impossible possible for many issues including sports and rehabilitative medicine (SERM) postgraduate program within the faculty of family medicine of the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons (GCPS). The man who opened up the way for this SERM postgraduate program in Ghana and sub Saharan Africa for the first time. He is a great loss to GCPS and Ghana. My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. God bless his soul. He will never be forgotten. RIP

Thank you for everything, for taking me under your wing and making room for me in your family like I was your very own...you will never be forgotten. Rest well great great man. Rest well.

You were pragmatic yet incisive in your own gentle manner in a recent meeting with you and some of the Paediatric and Child health leaders of the College. The occasion was in January when the UNICEF representatives presented a copy of the "Child Protection Guidelines for Health Workers" and what the College was going to do about this problem.?You didnot waste time to charge us to organise series of training for all faculties who come across children .as you saw that the College needs to take this up .That s good leadership . We have not yet begun our task and you have suddenly left us.Jacob Thank you for all your hard work for the College. Rest in perfect Peace

I remember when I met Prof in medical school as one of my examiners. The first comment he made to his colleague when I entered the room for my Viva Voce was '' See how she's all grown up. I saw her childhood when she used to wee wee all over the floor, she's a big madam now!!". Everyone in the room burst out laughing and that was the ice breaker for me easing all the anxiety I entered the room with. Prof. Jacob Plange-Rhule, you were such a gentleman of honour. My family is still in shock you're no more with us. Rest well Uncle Jake, Rest well!!! Though untimely, God knows best.
Aunty Gyikua, God will keep strengthening you and the girls.

We share our mutual woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.
When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again.
Uncle Paapa.... May your soul rest in Perfect Peace until the resurrection morning
You are sorely missed

A HEARTFELT TRIBUTE TO THE MAN I CALLED DADDY (PROFESSOR JACOB PLANGE-RHULE)
I honestly do not know where to begin. You were very dear to my heart. A lot of people wonder how I recovered from multiple tragedies in life especially when they occurred when I was so young. Daddy PR, aunt Gyikua and family helped me a lot. Most of my emotional healing came from being around you and your family. I do not remember a vacation that I did not spend with you and your family. You never sent me away and with you, I knew no rejection. I remember one Father’s Day, I called you Uncle, and you were so upset, I was ashamed and embarrassed.
People wondered why we were not related by blood, but you had such a delicate spot for me. Your love knew no bounds and for that I am grateful. With you and your family, we travelled everywhere, and we all shared so many fond memories. We shared a love of gari, with shito, corned beef and fried egg. I used to ask you whether you would like some before preparing it and you would always say no, you were on a diet to slim down your tummy (lol); Only for you to take mine after I was done and tell me, “Go and make another”. I would glare first, then laugh and you would just dismiss me with your hand. You loved everyone around you. I would never forget you calling all of us, sometimes 8 children in all to come do your hair, nails, etc. You would accuse us for not telling you “your haircut” was lovely, for not gathering around to eat with you even after telling you we have had our fill, and how dare we come to Accra without living in your house. You always told me “Obeye yie” whenever I had written an exam and did not get expected results, but not without scolding me first. You never forgot my birthday daddy. I am so used to calling you to discuss career changes with you, even before calling my own dad. One of my dreams after pursuing research was to co-author with you daddy. When my dad could not be around for my wedding, you stepped in without question and I was so privileged to have you walk me down the aisle. You have held all my children and they are asking about grandpa. Zoey keeps on asking me if you are feeling better. Your grandchildren would kick and scream when we came to visit you and it was time to go back. You had that rare gift with children, and they could never have enough of grandpa. I will always remember you for including me in your family.
You were always so proud of me like your very own daughter. I love you daddy and I cherish you dearly. You were always there for me. You had an extraordinarily strong impact in my life. I am who I am today because of God, my family and blessed support and unconditional love from you daddy PR and your family. Thank you for letting me experience fatherly love here on earth. We know you are making the angels in Heaven laugh. Da yie Daddy. By Dr. Victoria Ansah (nee Kutana)

Cee-Rhule, I'm here with my test results for your perusal and advice. What do I do now?
Your demise is such a big loss of a great friend, neighbour, family friend etc.
You impacted many in your life and I guess your labour here on earth is done, so Your Maker called you to His bosom for a deserved rest.

My dear Prof, my last memory of you will be when you asked me for the number for the Waakye joint I always bring to the club house. Your passing was so sudden and it hurts so bad. I never met your family and can only offer words of comfort to them. May your gentle and kind soul Rest In Eternal Peace. Da yie

When I carried your bag to the car on Wednesday 25th March, little did I know that was a farewell. Uncle Jacob working with you was interesting, there are days you are strict and insist on how something must be done and other days you'll relax for me to take initiatives. We had many boss & assistant moments I'll cherish forever. I miss your voice over the phone, "lucy please come". The signaling from the high table to come and all our sign language tactics. Death laid it's icy hands on you too early. Rest in perfect peace prof.

Sitting in the front row of his physiology class, I will squeeze my face each time I got lost in following some of the mechanisms of body function. He will go like: "my friend, what's worrying you? let it out." Then I got a repeat explanation each time. It appeared he could see everyone's face at the same time.
The last time we met, (around March 10-March 14) was the Accra Mall Pharmacy. I teased if I could he prescribe for him now that I'm a doctor, the smile was broad as ever!
Well, that was my last gift from him for now.
Prof! God Keep you until we meet again!

It is still hard for me to believe that my good friend Jacob as I call him is no more. Gone for good to be with his maker. I'm gonna miss you very much. I can't believe that when you called me in the plane that was going to be our last time of shaking hands and smiling together. It's like yesterday to me. Rest well Jacob till we meet at the resurrection.
