Liberia: Incomprehensible Loss

Liberian soccer legend Ambassador George Weah has expressed condolence to the wife and family of Frank Jean Seator.

The death of the former Liberian international was announced last Monday, the same day the Guinean plane crashed near Liberia's international airport.

In a statement issued at the weekend, Ambassador Weah said the death of Mr. Seator was devastating. He said he is saddened by the death of his soccer colleague whom he described as a wonderful person.

"Frank Seator played many different roles throughout his life. He was an athlete, player, father, and husband to name a few. Frank Seator was a long-time friend and brother to me and his absence is an incomprehensible loss that I feel on a very personal level," Ambassador Weah pointed out.

The Liberian soccer Ambassador said Seator was a trustworthy person, reliable and constant throughout the time they interacted.

"He touched many lives with his abundance of love, positivity, and strength. He was an exceptional player during his years with the Liberia national team, Lone Star, cultivating great athletes with enduring patience, focus, and selflessness. Seator was also a strong role model and dear friend to so many of us, the soccer legend recalled.

Weah said Seator's life was taken away from us too soon and it is hard to understand why this tragedy would happen to such a caring and humble person.

Ambassador Weah: "His fun-loving and generous spirit will be sorely missed by all. Let us honor and celebrate his life not by dwelling on the sudden loss, but instead on the wonderful memories that were shared together; his accomplishments, kind heart, and jovial personality."
