He was the chief organizer at my wedding, my father had passed on and my poor mother was a bit overwhelmed. He was Mr Fix-it for everything from broken toys to marriages.

"My Tribute to the STRONG MAN.
I had never seen his weakness even at very painful and trying times when other mortals would fall apart. His stoic posture and disposition is all you see, because he knew he had to lead - 'Ojinnaka'. At moments when he thought no one was observant, he sheds a tear behind the newspaper. Even at our last meeting, he bravely bore the pain and exhaustion of the return fl"

We were at the kitchen table only a few weeks ago laughing over our shared taste for sugar-filled tea. You were telling of your days in the youth corps and cooking soup for N1 back then. I never expected you'd be taken from us so soon. You were a monument that will never be forgotten.

Sleep well."

You were the light of my marriage life and the heart of the Anyaegbunam I Ibegbu family. From the day I was introduced to you until the burial of my husband  and till you joined the saints , you were my pillar of strength  an courage.

"My Dear Uncle...I cannot hold back the tears. I cannot imagine visiting Lagos now and you not being there; to see, to greet, to hug. You were one of the very first uncles I knew, a big part of my world even as a child, you called me "Yeyaa" and you didn't mind when Ifeoma and I played the piano loudly and very off-key...I will miss you so much. May your soul rest in perfect peace..."

"Uncle Nwora, to say the news of your passing was a rude shock is an understatement. Kayode & I were so excited to see you & Sister when we visited last December, if we had known you were bidding us good bye we would have stayed longer to enjoy your usual warmth, jokes, advices & words of wisdom. You 'are' just like a big brother to us. God will give us all the strength to bear his absence."

Last time I saw you was when we were leaving the family retreat in December. I'm left asking myself why you were taken away from us soo soon but I believe God has bigger plans for you. You touched so many with your heart and I'll miss that. Rest in peace Uncle!!!..."

God give us strength to face this blow, what it meant losing you, no one will know.To hear your voice, to see your smile,to sit and talk with you awhile,to be together in the same old way would be our dearest wish today. Adieu a great Hero."

No one to call me Zuli!
A very big void has been created,
No one as large hearted as you to fill the void,
Bom noite, Bom noite great one!"

I still remember the last time I saw you, on Easter Monday - a quick "hi" and "bye" and I was gone, never knowing it will be the last time I saw you. But I'm grateful for that time and all the other times you were "my Uncle". May you rest in peace. (1 Thessalonians 4 v 13-14)."

"Daddy, I didn't get to see you before you left but i know all is well. There is a mighty gap in a lot of lives, a mighty gap that no one else can fill. You were a father to the fatherless, a friend to the lonely, above all, you were my father.Thank you for bringing joy to so many.  I love you so so so much! Rest in Perfect Peace!!!"

It's hard to believe that you are gone. I still hear you calling me, 'Prankinses'. You were the advocate for the underdog and we pray that God will raise someone else to continue where you left off. You touched many lives indeed and you will be greatly missed. May God bless and keep your family. I will miss you."
