Former President Blah died in early April after a brief illness.

President Johnson-Sirleaf led an array of government officials Monday April 22, 2013 to sign the Book of Condolence at the Foreign Ministry in Monrovia.

Other government officials, who signed the book of condolence, included Vice President, Joseph Boakai, Pro Tempore of the Liberian Senate, Gbezohngar Findley, Foreign Minister, Augustine Ngafuan, and River Gee County Senator, Fredrick Cheru, among others.
