"Sometimes is really unbearable, sometimes its difficult that you are not here with us and we have not seen your face nor heared your voice in 4 years.I see time pass but the memories stand still as i rememeber our childhood,tennage years,working years,marital years and so many more.You always had a heros effect on people and i see your children who you have charged me to look after with the same effect.I see your wife trying to live ip to your hogh standards for the kids and know you are proud of how they are growing and smiling from above,just wish i could see it.Our parents have shown me that with God though the pain is so real you have a cause to go on.So we go on to identify with your strength of character,your never give up attitude and your belief that every one can be better.You lived my brother and that is what death can never take away from me.Kenny Nwannem! Your place in my heart is for all time.Thank you for being the best elder brother any man could ask for ."

"Dear Ken, you will forever be remembered. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord."
"Ken-O my brother, I still do not know how to let go. Four years down a painful and sorrowful path of grieve I have walked. I kept telling myself that one day you will show up and comfort us and tell us all is well.
How long ohh Kenny shall our tears flow. Is it not possible for God to let you come to us with that your ever loving hearty smiles. How limited and powerless I have found myself as human dealing with realities of your departure. I have thought in error that very fateful day that you will certainly hear me as always when I call you. Well since it has pleased God that I be in such pain, I will obey His will and trust Him that it is well. Always will we all remember you."
"2 years have gone by, yet it still feels like yesterday........ dear Kenoooo, we, your friends, remember you always and and all the time and all we used to do together. We know you are in a better place. Rest on dear friend....... rest on."

Everyday I look out through the window expecting to ses You coming to me with your usual smile and tell me uncle it was a dream. I miss you so much but I can only pray for the Grâce of God to hold on until we meet again in the présence of God. Sleep well my Brother."
"Unclemine, its another 365 days gone by!!! Forever loved, Forever in our hearts, Forever missed by the ones you left behind. I know time heals so when it's time, I'll heal, but for now it still hurts as much as it did 2 years ago. I miss you Unclemine, and I pray to see you some day in Heaven."

The shoes you left for me is so huge, I wonder will I everbe able to fill just"

"Dear Ken, it's still a shock to me because I chatted with your wife, only to hear the sad news. I met you only once when my friend, your dear wife Roseline joined you in London during your training and I stopped by after work, to spend happy moment with your family. You exhibited the signs of a God fearing man, cared for your family and friends. Thanks a million. Rest in the Lord."

"May your gentle soul rest in peace.Adieu"
"As I listen to family and friends talk of you Kenneth,I realized that you touched everyone that came into your life.From the love emanating here,you were a devoted- brother,father,employee and a friend.I could not help but felt for your adorable family that must live their lives without you.It is very touchy that I nearly asked "why you?,but the cosmos barely bothers to reply.RIP Kenneth."
"Kenny my brother. I have waited till this moment to hear from you. My tears cant stop flowing because i could not thank you for sending my mums passport to me a day before. What a way to depart from us. Mbinosky, my 19 years of association with you left an indelible impression in my heart. You will surely forever be missed by me,my family and all. Mr. Snow."
"July 29, 2012 is a DAY that will be hard for Me and the Members of my Family to forget. Let us remember that as we do what we do in life, fighting, backbiting & the like, that death is by the corner. It could be anyone of us. The death of our loved ones should be a lesson for us as we do everything. Kenny, you were MORE THAN a "BROTHER" & a "FRIEND". May ur gentle soul rest in Peace Amen."
"Very very painfull as it may be, one thing is certain. God does not make mistake and nothing takes Him unaware. We wish you were more sluggish in doing your assignment here on earth in other for us to have stayed longer here. Hi kenneth, am pretty sure you did all that u came here to do. Let us all take hearth, behind the gray cloud the sun still shines and radiates its light far & near."
"Ken, I don't know what to say but, pray that you sleep in the Lord. We are terribly sad but cannot change the 'will' of the Almighty God. May HE take care of the lovely ones you left behind. Bye, until we meet to part no more."
"I remember ur calm voice, how u hugged me and encouraged me back in school...little did i know that giving all ur love to those that needed it was all that mattered to you...and never cared to take back. now i'm speechless, drowning my tears in memories of u. I learnt from u...how to be good. Kenny, u are broda and ur goodness lives on."
"A pat on the back and a sympathetic ear were valuable gifts from ken to those he worked/lived with. Ken made it a habit to give whether himself, his time, his money, a word of encouragement or a listening ear.
"ken you were my consultant, brother and friend. May your gentle soul rest in peace! I miss you and will forever cheerish our moments together""
"We"ll miss those smiles that were ever there to brighthen our days, our sunshine, always with words of encouragement. I remember our last meetings in the lift twice and you kept urging me to be cheerful and not allow work or whatever pressure make me sad. Now am sad cos you are gone! I cherish that day I wore your suit and walked around with it,you always had the best.God rest you Kenneth!"

May God grant Your Wife and kids the strength and comfort to carry on and everyone who you came in contact with and may we all live our lives each day as though its our last. May Your legacy live on."
"I am speechless. If this is really true, then i am rather reflecting more on the real meaning of life....my life. Ken, if i see u burried, then its true, but i will still praise my living God for using his son, Ken to minister to me and many souls, the true meaning of life... Sleep on friend."
"They say there's a reason....
They say that time will heal....
But neither time nor reason....Will change the way we feel.

In all things we give thanks to God."
"May God grant your soul eternal rest. Amen"

"Holding to what I’m feeling
is the way i cross my 24 hours
feels like heavy red blood being poured on me
through dark beastly showers!
I still see you in front of my eyes
You must be looking at me
from where you are
but I wish i could have changed what was meant to be!"
"Losing such a vibrant, focused, competent, charismatic and purposive colleague has left me mindless and keenless about fruits of the virtues of life, which were possessed by this young fellow.
