"I will forever remember you.
Papa, you taught me how to dress up and to present myself as a good looking woman. You taught me the differences between casual and official wears. You told me never to go to Church in casual wear. You told me that a woman must have a husband and must know how to cook and manage the home. You taught me how to care for my family. But, you never teach me how to live without you. You never teach me what death is. Now, I have to figure out how to live without you. One thing I know of course is to read the Word as you told me.   You taught me that Church is in the heart and not in the building structure. I remembered the last word we share, I remembered the last song we sang, I remembered the last prayer we said. Now that you are no more, am spending my time finding more and more truth in the Words written in RED. I will forever remembered you. You were there whenever I needed you. You spent your life for me to live.  You were very loving and caring. The love you shared will forever be part of my life. I am ending here Papa with heavy eyes hoping to feel your gentle hands robbing down my cheeks as you always wipe tears on my face. My heart is heavy as you no more listen to my complaints. Am hungry to hear your voice. Am hungry to hear you say as you answer the phone  "Hello who is on the line, speak louder". I called the house phone several times since March 13 to talk to you as usual but no one is answering. I very much missed you. Rest in peace, until we meet again.   We will always love you. Farewell papa."

"I met Pa once and there was a lightening impact because he carried on a conversation with me like he had known me for quite a while. Pa's legacy remains with the children he left behind. Pa continues to smile in paradise as he watches and continues to direct us through the important lessons he left us with, his humility and generosity will remain for ever.
       Requiescat in pace"

"Baby SU, Felicia, Eli and the rest of the family,I know what it means loosing a love one.You guys just need to be strong, by looking at pa's going from a positive side.Not every body is lucky to bury their parents.Its difficult, but only God holds our future.

"Everyday we wonder why,
That you were taken high up to the sky,
And we didn't get a chance to say goodbye,
There are so many things we want to say,
There are so many questions we want to ask.
We really will miss you grandpa
we will miss all the funny stories
we will miss all the songs we sang together.
We wish our children would've had the same fun
we had with you.
Farewell till we meet again
your grandchildren
  Noella, Atem, Nka, and Fole."

"A special dad is hard to find,
You dad I'm keeping in my mind,
I wished you could have stayed forever,
But I will never forget you oh not ever.
I will never forget all the good and fun
times we had together.
Lots of things we had in common.
Lots of hobbies we shared.
If dreams weren't dreams and dreams came true, 
I wouldn't be here I'd be with you.
When you exit a part of me left with you.
Distance is one thing that keeps us apart,
But dad you will always remain in my heart.
A special smile, a special face, a special someone I can't replace,
I love you and I always will,
You filled a space that no one will ever replace."

""There is a sacredness in tears.  They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.  They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.  They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and of unspeakable love." R.I.P Pa Ni"

"When Tomorrow Starts Without Me.
Shared by Elizabeth Folefac on 03/21/2014
When tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see; if the sun should rise and find your eyes filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn't, cry the way you did today. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you; and each time you think of me. I know you’ll miss me too; but when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand. It seemed my place was ready in heaven far above, and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly loved. But as I walked away, a tear feel from my eye, it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, all the love. If I could relieve yesterday, even just for a while, I’d say goodbye and see you smile. But then I finally realized that this could never be,' cause emptiness and memories would take the place of me. When I thought of worldly things might miss come tomorrow, my heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through heaven's gates, I felt so much at home; when God looked down on me from His great golden throne. He said, "This is eternity, and all I promised to you. Today your life on earth is passed, but here it starts anew." "I promise no tomorrow, today will always last, and since each day is the same way, there's no longing for the past. You have been so trusting and true; though there were times you did some things ,you knew you shouldn’t do. You have been forgiven, and now at least you’re free. So won't you take my hand and share my life with me?" So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I 'm right there in your heart. May your journey be a peaceful one, and may your soul rest in perfect peace. Bye Pa until we met again."

"Dearest Folefac   family ,

                       Your Dad was a good man as we all know;he did his all. The best way you can pay tribute to him, is to be a good fathers  & mothers and role model to your own children as he was. Always find the time for them. Never forget how your time was cut short with your own father, and let it be just one more reason to spend as much quality time with your family as possible. Let the memory of your dad live on through stories you tell your children about him, even if they never met him. There is no better tribute to a father than to be the best man that you can possibly be. We will cherish the memories of the times we spent together. We are with you during this time of grief"

"A Prayer for this special Soul.
Lord our God, the death of Pa Nicholas recalls our human condition and the brevity of our lives on earth. But for those who believe in Your love, death is not the end, nor does it destroy the bonds that You forge in our lives. We share the faith of Your Son's disciples and the hope of the children of God. Bring the light of Christ's resurrection to this time of testing and pain as we pray for Pa Nicholas and for those who love him, through Christ our Lord. Amen."

"An Angel whispered
take my hand and
come with me
you're work here is done.

I went away to a place
where there's no tears, nor sorrow
only laughter and smiles,
there will always be a Tomorrow.

As I move amongst the clouds.
I'll look down and smile upon you,
while the angels
sing a heavenly song.

I am not alone
all who went before
are here
they awaited my return.

I know you'll grieve
and wish I was still here
I am here in the memories
you hold dear.

Remember how much I
love you
and know I took your
love with me.

I did not wish for 
you to cry, nor feel sad.
My pain is gone and
I am Free!

Soon you'll come to me
until then
God will be with you
Just as He's with me."
