"Riposa in pace caro

Condolence for family

Last night I had a dream,
I dreamed that I was walking on the sand
accompanied by the Lord,
and on the screen of the night they were screened
all the days of my life.
I looked back and saw that
for every day of my life,
They appeared footsteps on the sand:
and my Lord.
So I went ahead, as long as
all my days were exhausted.
So I stopped looking back,
noting that in some places
there was only a footprint ....
These posts coincided with the days
the most difficult of my life;
the days of greatest distress,
more fear and more pain ...
I asked then:
"Lord, You said you'd been with me
all the days of my life,
and I agreed to live with you,
but why have you left me alone in the moments
worst of my life? "
And the Lord answered:
"My son, I love you and I told you that I would be
with you throughout your journey
and that I would not have left you alone
even a moment,
and I not have left you ....
The days when you have seen only a footprint
on the sand,
They were the days when I carried you. ""

"The amount of tears I've cried is nothing compared to the pain inside.
Each and every day I think of you. 
From the sound of your voice to the sparkle in your eyes.
How can all of this be true?
I can't believe you're really gone,
I still can't accept it,
Ogoobeanyi was a special being..He was loving,Adorable,kind and loved by all..He was so full of life and laughter that anyone who met him immediately  wanted to be a friend of his..I miss being your little Sister. .Hearing my name called by your voice..."Nne,Ama baby,Beautiful girl,pretty".He'll always shower me with praises whenever He sees me..
sometimes I feel like my world has just come crashing down around me..
but the word of God keeps me going...
I love u very much and I'll always love u forever.Rawlly and Rielle misses u so much..I miss u so very much..."

"How!? Why!? Many questions, few answers.
How do i start? Where do I stop?
Our loss is heaven's gain. Even though we met randomly, fewer times than i can remember, you are that type that's difficult to forget. You'll surely be remembered from the faces of the family you've left behind. Sleep on bro. Rest in Peace."

"My good in law
Your presence will be missed
Your memory will be treasured
We know you walk with the angels now
But you'll never be forgotten over here
For your good deeds"

"As I write this I am in tears.  My heart is broken, I am devastated at your transition, I dont believe I will ever get over this, nor will I accept this to be right, God made a mistake when he took you, knowone will convince me otherwise. Charles, you were my oldest son. I loved you dearly.  You were a kind and gentle spirit, beautiful inside and out.  Wise and mature beyond your years.  Ive known you close to 20 years, we have done business together over this time period and Ive never lost a dime, not once.  You were an honest man.   You built an Empire from nothing.  You were a genius, trailblazer.  People like you dont die, its impossible.  You are still standing, I saw you in my dream and you said you were standing in your shoes.  The torch has been passed to Ann, she is now you in physical form, she must carry on your Legacy.  Peace to you my love, you are still here through those who truly love
you.  We will not let you down."

"Ogo, Wow I am shock to my core,  now you are in the physical world.
How surprised  you must have been as well to find yourself in the land of the living.
Please, done hold on to the thread that keep you connected to the land of the living.
Go ahead and expand and reach the highest level in the spiritual world.
The spiritual world is a mirror to the physical world so nothing is hidden and now you know this.
Take the help that is available to you and learn all you did not, in this physical world.
Do not be stubborn so that your transient is a smooth one.

Please help us that are in need of direction, so that we will prefect our hearts with Jehovah.
Please do not be angry at your quick passing, focus on what you have to do now.

Now, that you are in the spiritual world, you know what lies in place for them; move on and work on yourself.
I love you Brother, we are forever connected and as I write these words I know you are right here with me.
I see your smiling face and that devilry laugh of yours, always smiling even when you are trying to be serious.
I know, you will sour into the highest levels of the heavens because you know it is the right thing to do.
You are never far away , with only a thought and you are with anyone that thinks of you.

Eccl 9: 5 For the living know they will die; but the dead do not know anything, nor have they any longer a reward, for their memory is forgotten. 6 Indeed their love, their hate and their zeal have already perished, and they will no longer have a share in all that is done under the sun.

The Rich Man and Lazarus
19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. 24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’
25 “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’
27 “He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my family, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’
29 “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’
30 “‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’
31 “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’”"

"My Boss of almost 8 years at Golden Motors, Inc., I can not believe that I will never see you walk through the doors of Golden Motors, Inc. again... You hired me as your Manager at Golden Motors, Inc. back in 2008-2009.. You became my mentor, telling me "I'm going to teach you this car business"... I learned a lot about you and the business, you loved your family, business and Nigeria... I had never met anyone from Nigeria so through Charles, I learned some of the language, lots of food lol and the culture...

You were my friend, my mentor and my boss... I have never seen ANYONE work as hard as you daily... I will carry on everything I've learned from you, including your motivation and your drive for life itself... My heart is broken as I expected you back from Nigeria within three weeks to get ready for tax season of selling cars... My family is heart broken as well, your American family we are sadden to say "Rest Well"... We will never forget you!!

P.S, I was blessed enough to help celebrate your last 39th Birthday, in which I took pictures of your happiness and smiles that day..."

""Ogoo" as you were called by the family, Chief "Egbe" as you were called by friends and well-wishers, "Akpun'eno-mgbo" as you were called in your days in secondary school, "Atlanta" as you were called in the streets of Onitsha; but unknowingly to me that I will be typing a tribute for YOU this soon at 39, it's still unbelievable; my heart is sore pained within me, I'm heart broken, the entire family is heart broken. Curse be unto that day the heart broken news was broken; oh the day of my saddest experience and painful shock.. We were twin-looked brothers and we paled so close as good friends. If I had the opportunity to go get you back from wherever u are, I would've long done it but who can question GOD? The keys to life and death are in his hands. It's a price that everyone will definitely pay we know but you paid yours so soon bro.. There's no amount of words and tears that can bring you back but your memory lives forever in my heart until we meet and part no more... #RestInHeaven #RestInTheBossomOfTheLord #Amen! #1LoveBro! #OdogwuIsGone!"

"Ogo, you were one of a kind. The news of your death has been difficult to accept. However, we cannot question our heavenly father.  Your journey here on earth maybe over, but your memories will continue forever among those who knew and loved you. I will miss your hugs whenever we run into each other,  I will miss your smiles and great conversations.  May you rest in peace, we may cry for a while, but according to Revelation 21:4, a time will come when the Lord will wipe every tear from our eyes.  There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. Rest in peace dear friend."

It's your only Nne! My heart is broken and I still can't bear that you are gone. I envision your smile, your loud laughter and your hugs, and it is simply irreplaceable.
