"Today would have been Dad's 89th birthday. I thought about him yesterday when someone shared something he could have said. The person said those who have to announce to everyone that they are born again, probably aren't. Dad always believed that if you are the genuine article, it will show. Today I thank God that Dad taught us to live true from the inside out."
"In Heaven do they celebrate birthdays? We are limited to times and seasons on earth, so "Happy Birthday Dearest Daddy"! As always, I thank God for the gift of having you as my Father. Many hugs and kisses for you and Mom! Your memory is blessed always. Fondly remembered by all who had the privilege of knowing you!"
"Rest in peace Sir!"
"Five years, gone so quickly. You will always have a special place in my heart, I miss eeee Funmi,and all our lovely conversations."
"Dee Osoka I missed your calls. Shalom."
"The memory of the righteous is blessed! Dear God please help us to reflect on our Dad's life and remember that nothing is worth losing family unity and love! May we have the courage to pursue peace and drop all grudges, in Jesus name, amen!"
"Dad would have been 88 today but thank you Lord that he is in a place where time no longer exists. A place where ...God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.””
Revelation 21:4 NKJV"
"The memory of the righteous is blessed. Dee Osoka I missed your humours,stories and phone calls asking why you have not seen me. YOUR GRAVE IS IN OUR HEART, SHALOM."
"Four years on. Still cherishing every memory. To God be the glory!"
"Beloved Daddy, your memory is blessed. I deeply appreciate God for making me your child. I now know the secret of your strength is Christ in you. Remain Special!"
"Today as always, we remember the life of our dad. His footprints remain indelible in us. To God be all the glory!"
"Always in our hearts and on our minds..."
"Daddy would have been 86 today. What a nice man he was! Pleasant, witty, farsighted, humble, loyal, long suffering, kind, extremely intelligent and shrewd but also forgiving and incapable of bearing a grudge. May the Lord preserve your legacy in me in Jesus Name. Amen."
"The path that Grandad walked was shown with no regrets. I also cherish the little time that I got given to seeing my Grandad before he passed on.
"Two years already daddy, you may be gone but but your legacy lives on through your loved ones. I remember that smile and "eee Funmi" you would say with such cheerfulness. I will always remember you."
"Unconditional love. That's the love our parents showed to us. As we remember our Dad today, two years later, his memory remains blessed. Till we meet to part no more in Christ.."
"It's 2 years already! Today I wore a t shirt Dad gave me to the stadium and announced to those who still have Daddy's to take special care of them while they still have the time. Continue to rest in peace Daddy dearest."
Wow! Another year already!!! Your descendants are all hale and hearty. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord.
You will forever be remembered. You are in our hearts always."
"Amazing grace, how sweet the sound... I thank God on every remembrance of Daddy. A very special man. As blunt as he was honest. I love and miss my Dad."
""Naboth said to Ahab. The Lord forbid that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you". 1 Kings 21 v. 3. On this day that would have been my Dad's 85th birthday, I solemnly vow not to abandon the Godly principles that he left behind for me as my inheritance. I am proud to be his heir."
"I do remember your dad! We called him Uncle Imo & looked forward to seeing him if my parents hosted Item Dev. Union meetings at our place in Lagos. I remember his sense of humour, e.g. once when people were discussing careers & he said his wife's career was 'Mrs Imo'. It's the way he said it with a mischievous smile. :-) Lovely man & entirely lovely family. Anne (nee Anaeme)."
"May the Almighty God grant eternal rest to Dede Osoka as He rests in the bossom of the Lord.
Dede fought a good fight , touching all whom the Lord brought his way, ( relations , friends, and even total strangers)
Surely a crown of righteousness is , his
""Daddy, though I never meet you, I call you Daddy because I can see your exceptional handwork of enduring virtue, kindness, hope, love and faith in your daughter (Sis. Ugonma Adiukwu). We remember you today for your long lasting legacy. Hope to see you at the marriage super of the LORD."
"Daddy! What can I say? The longer I live, the more I appreciate you. Warm, generous, kind, quick tempered but never one to bear a grudge. Loyal. Absolutely loyal. Carried his invalid wife by himself many times without complaint. Could I do the same if need be? Doubtful, extremely doubtful. I love you daddy. You were a good example of what a Father should be."
"Life’s experiences are like threads in a tapestry. Daily, dark & bright threads knit together, often without rhyme or reason, but in the end forming a picture. Your bright threads are love given, gotten & lives touched. The dark threads are the disappointments, trials & tears needed for the bright threads to look brighter. Looking at your life’s tapestry daddy, it’s beautiful! Alero Imo"
"We cherish the love Daddy brought into our lives. He will always be in our hearts."
"Dear descendants of Osoka Imo, one year ago 11th Feb 2012, the Great Osoka Imo passed on to be with the Lord. The greatest memorial we can build in his honor is to keep the path of RIGHTEOUSNESS AND UPRIGHTNESS HE LIVED FOR ALL THE DAYS OF HIS LIFE ON EARTH.Daddy rest on."
