"This grand don go leave person for middle Mungo.

Elinge, if tears, if prayers, if hoping and praying and wishing from the depth of the heart could make you stay, you would have. A part of me is heartbroken because you are no longer there, but another part remembers that sometimes God answers our prayers in ways we do not expect.

Rest in peace, bro."

"My "Uncle Elinge",

Your death brings to mind the brevity of life! Just when we expected you to enjoy the fruit of your hard work, you bow out of the stage! You never lost hope! Ambitious until your last breath! Where, O death is your sting? Where, O death is your victory? (1 Corinthians 15:15)

You left without getting to meet your gorgeous grandson! How do I explain to him what happened? Will Eyole and Adira ever understand all of this? A blow to posterity!

Our only consolation is that you are now resting at the bosom of our Lord.

Adieu Elinge! Farewell!"

"Tribute to My In-law, friend and brother Elinge Julius Ikome!

News of your death on the 27th of December 2014 took me by ambush. The last time I was at home, we both acknowledged that you had gone through the worst phase of your illness. Thus, I was in shock when your Wife; my sister told me that “Uncle Balla Elinge don die”.

I came to know you as a brother in-law but my relationship with you grew in leaps and bounds and the friendship and bond became stronger each passing day. It went beyond that of brother in-law and was more of friend and brother. You call me Mr. B or Booh and I also call you Booh. It was a relationship based on genuine friendship and mutual respect for each other. Small wonder that in spite of your illness, whenever you felt better, you will always find time to check on me at home. This even led to a friend asking me that Balla “ why Elinge di ever visit you so eeeh like say ie no va finish pay bride price” And I responded that “nah because nah my “person”. And you were truly ma person. I remember your wife telling me “Elinge nah really your person”.

I was always amazed with your vision and your plans and projects for the future. You were a classic example of a visionary and an ambitious young man. Alas! Death the bad reaper cut short all those plans and projects. You were a gentleman per excellence and a very honest young man in an age wherein dishonesty is the order of the day.

Booh! You were selfless and always willing and ready to help. Even on your sick bed, you still religiously kept to your principles. Booh, you had a heart of gold. I vividly recall a conversation in my house with you and Bobby less than a month before your sudden departure. Bobby was leaving for Mamfe to see Papa and you said, “abeg take this money gie me Papa”. Bobby was like Julie, “You don di sick all this while and you no di work, try keep that money’ and you responded “Ma try send Papa small thing sef”. How many of us in that your situation would even have thought of that? I knew you were selfless but Booh that was the apogee of self-abnegation. That experience left an indelible mark in my mind. My respect for you increased a million times. Booh! You were great at heart.

I will tremendously miss your management skills and constant advise. Thanks to your management skills and your supervision in my absence, we completed the construction of the office. I will forever be indebted to you.

You are (Yes I said it) the best husband that a brother could ever wish for her sister and by parity of reasoning the best brother in- law. Papa is still crying as he will miss his favorite son in-law. The entire Nkongho Brown family will miss you and I will MISS MY PERSON. I know how much you love your family and how much support you gave to your family. You can be rest assured that The Nkongho Brown family shall be there to provide the necessary support to the family you are leaving behind in general and in particular to your wife and kids; Eyole and Adi.
Rest in Peace my In-law, Adieu my friend and bye! bye! my junior brother.

Agbor Balla aka  Mr. B"

"You all most be joking was what I told ekema Humphrey when he called at 1:00am to give me the news of the falling hero of our age. Although older than me julo always made me comfortable. I remember the day at of Julius kemmers signing his mother called baby and he turned and we laughed at him that pa like u them di call u baby. How we use play game and u said u were the master. Seen u in ur sick bed with a lot of humour and jokes made made us pray that u should stay with us forever and get well soon. 24 Dec i came and u were sleep was that the last time I saw u . Oh Julie Julie works big pa all names. We love u but God loves u mosty brother. Adieu"

"Booh! This is one of the most difficult things I've had to do in my entire life, writing a tribute to you. It's beyond belief that you are no more. I'm so proud to have played the role of big brother in your life. You impacted my life in such a special way with the fierce ambitious attitude and vision for life and the future. You were a hard working young man, and always ready to help in whatever way you could when you were needed. Even in your ill state you were willing to put me through project management lessons.  You fought tirelessly to achieve your goals which you often did and had a positive attitude even when in tough times of your illness. You told me 2 days before you passed that your spirits were high and you won't harbor any negativity because it's the first step towards death. You held on and fought strong till your last breath and for that I salute you. You were a nice, brutally honest and outspoken person who would tell what you feel to people's faces without blinking. God who brought you to this world has all the answers to our questions. We don't understand death, but we know like your niece Endale says that you are happy in heaven. I will greatly miss you. I promise to be there for Achale, Eyole and Adira whenever they need me. I could write on and on but it's just so heavy the thoughts to bear. God bless your soul. Mbeleke as I fondly called you, you were a good person with a heart of gold, generous to a fault and good company beyond measure. You are free now so Rest in Peace."

"Grand, it breaks our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.  A part of us went with you the day God decided to take you home. If tears could build a stairway, and heartaches make a lane,  we will walk our way to heaven and bring you back again. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place no one can ever fill. Because someone we love is in heaven, the is a little of heaven in our hearts. Miss u grand u were an inspiration."

"Hi Julius, i still remember our last real conversation in 2011 when you asked me for advise on what to do next with your career. little did i know that you will be leaving us so soon. Your smile and ambition was present for all to see. How many Young people if our age had the courage to marry so early in life? you showed how responsible you were when you took that bold step and stuck with it for the rest of your life. We will miss you bro. please greet all our friends  who have gone ahead for me esp Harry. RIP Bro!!!!"
