You are forever missed . Just thinking about you... I want to cry so bad but I can’t help but smile... smile at all the memories we had. Smile at our young puppy love we had. You was my person. We had ups and downs and more ups. I still remember you teaching me how to drive and the first day I set outside your house cause you wanted me to meet your mom but I was too nervous than we was only teenagers lol. I remember we use to stay up on the phone listening to the radio waiting for keyshia cole - heaven sent to come on... I miss you. I wish I could see all the beauty that you would have became just to talk to you see you. I will forever think about you.

I remember The first you showed up as a Cadet in 2nd Platoon Bravo Company at the Arm National Gaurs Youth Challenge Academy Ft Stewart, Ga. from day one you made up your mind that you were going to make it through the program. You stepped up as a leader among the other cadets through the 22 week program. I can still remember when you told me that I don’t know what you and the other cadets are going through. I can still see the look on your face when I told you I graduated from YCA in 2001. You couldn’t believe it and said that you wanted to do just like I did. You loved your son more then anything in this world and you were proud to be a Nigerian. I can remember you talking about your family often. You would ask me about what I did in the Army and what was my MOS. I would tell you about what I did as a combat engineer and as a infantrymen. when you graduated you joined the army and did everything you told me you would do. I can remember the first time I saw you in your uniform. I can’t tell you how proud I was of you and the way you changed your life. It’s still hard to deal with your passing but I’m glad I was able to influence you and see the young man you became. Young stage until we meet again. Your battle buddies and family will keep your memory alive. Until we meet again Essayons!! Into the breach!!

My heart hurts for the family of Sgt Ating Eminue as I watched the episode of how such a fine, brave, handsome young man lost his life. No matter how old I get, I will never understand how a human being could take the life of another person and in such a despicable manner. Ating was a man who should forever be remembered as being a role model for everyone, regardless of race, color or age. I pray for his family and most especially for his young son who will never have the benefit of feeling his father's love first hand. Rest in peace Sgt. You left an impression of kindness to people you never had a chance to meet.

Just watching your story now on first 48, and to think a man from my country and same Army was gruesomely murdered for no reason. Rest easy sergeant! God be with your family and son. Heaven gained an angel

Beste familie Eminue.
Ik zag de uitzending op C.I op tv over uw zoon. Hij was een zeer geliefde persoon zoals ik vernam doordat hij daklozen mensen hielp met goederen en geld. Een vreselijke moord om zo iemand van het leven beroofd die erg noodzakelijk was. Woorden schieten te kort hierover. Het heeft me persoonlijk geraakt. gebeurt zelden bij uitzending van C.I. op tv maar deze uitzending zal me de rest van mijn leven heugen. ben 71 jaar en woon in Nederland. Ik ben de Engelse taal helaas niet machtig vandaar mijn medeleven in mijn eigen taal. Mijn excuus hiervoor.
Posted by Dee Nichols on November 14, 2018
Broke my heart when I watched this young mans life ripped away in such a thoughtless violent senseless way.
I hope you find solace somehow in how Ating is still touching people today.
God bless you all.

I am writing from Gaborone, Botswana, and I have just watched "The First 48" on Crime Investigation. It was indeed sad watching how a handsome young man by the name Sgt. Ating Eminue was brutally killed. A young man from Nigeria pursuing the American dream, killed by a useless, ruthless, heartless, trigger-happy boy!!! May his soul rest in perfect peace and may God grant his family permanent healing.

You dont know how much i think of you. That day i poured my heart out to you. the way you were there for me when i was out here bad. You always had my back . you loved me unconditionally. I am going to truly miss my friend. Love you Atting..My soldier.

Still hard saying goodbye to one of my best friends
Now I know what it means to be forever missed.
Posted by Paris Howell on August 15, 2018
It’s getting close to that time and everyone handles death differently, I probably won’t visit your gravesite again, it feels so permanent, so cold.
I like to believe your still here in spirit.... certain songs, memories and situations remind me of you, I no longer cry,
I smile. I was blessed to have had such a wonderful person in my life.
I know your looking down and I know I’ll see you in another life ....I love you brother, Always !

I’m so sorry for your loss. Your son sounded like an amazing man and his death is a great loss to this world. I’ll be praying for you, for healing and for peace.
Posted by Sheena Hughes on July 30, 2018
I’ve just seen the awful murder of Ating on The First 48hrs. Nothing I can say will make your pain any less I’m just pleased that justice was done.
Ating sounds like a genuine conscientious & caring man. To have served 3 tours in Afghanistan & to be murdered in his home town when all he was doing was trying to help a homeless guy who had no shoes. Breaks my heart at the waste of such a generous soul, who would’ve made a difference to so many had he lived his life to the full.
My love & best wishes to all that knew & loved Ating

Ating and family,
I just saw the show the first 48 about your wonderful son ating and what a wonderful person,son,father and friend he was. And I also want to say thank him for his service, my father was in Air Force for 33 years. Every time I see a service man or woman in uniform I always say thank u for your service and I have a 14 year old son who is autistic I tell him if he sees someone in a military uniform u say to them thank u for your service to and he does. Our deepest condolences to u and all your beautiful family. Like I said I saw the show and are wonderful and please take care of that beautiful little boy he has he looks so much like him and please continue to talk about his dad so he will always remember him and never be forgotten and keep a wonderful picture of him (his son and ating together) in a frame by his bed side so will remember him and tell all the wonderful things about hom. God bless all of you Jennifer, marcus and Geoffrey Jacob Alexander schrader 14.

My deepest condolences to Sgt Ating Eminue family and friends. I just saw his story on "The first 48 hours". What a senseless act! My God what is happening to our world and country? I just can't wrap my head around what happen... Just senseless and a waste! May God keep you all in his tender hands. "Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace, Amen"

dear Ating and family - I just watched your story on first 48 - first, i sincerely thank you for your service to our freedom and pray that God's peace, love and spirit will continue to heal the hearts of your beautiful son and family. your story is indeed, deeply sad and tragic for us to comprehend, but it is your act of compassion towards the homeless man that has so touched my heart. you were an angel on this earth, and I can be certain you inspired the hearts of so many who hear your story. rest in peace, and God's greatest blessings be upon your son and family.
Posted by Edith Esubok on April 14, 2017
...........I wish he had not taken your life in the first place, but this justice served is a consolation that your killer will be locked away for the rest of his miserable life, and other families will not have to face what he put your mom and everyone who holds your dear through, by ending your life so suddenly. REST ON IN PEACE SGT. Atting AEminue.

It's still surreal my friend, I can't believe I can't text or call you to hear your voice. Last time I was home in August we were supposed to get together but we both were busy.. But I cherish the times I did share your company.. Such a generous person gone too soon. I love you Ating

We are doing a Shoe Drive for Sgt Ating - is there anyone here who served with him that can contact me in helping to get shoes donated?


RIP Ating

The last time I saw you, you were just a 9 year old boy about leaving Nigeria with your family. You were a bundle of energy as a child and also as a heart sank when I heard this terrible news...All I can say is that you will never be forgotten..
May God give your family the strength and courage that they need.

Sad! Sad! !Sad!!!
Killed after giving on a beautiful Sunday. When I heard your Mom weeping on phone, it was heart breaking. "I have lost my son "was the message.

I've been soo hesitant about what to say to you because I'm still trying to grasp the concept of death. Didn't realize that you would be leaving us this soon. Although we had our disagreements, you always kept it loyal. Dang Atting, you really gone??? Sleep easy oh my friend. You fought a Great War on this earth and now God wants his warrior home. Enjoy your time up there and hope you see you in the next life soon. Miss you and rest easy my brother.

Person and had such a good soul. And I will miss all
The good times we had. It's such more more I want to
Say but all talk to you tommorow. Me. and Simone will
Be there to see you and I know your soul will be there
Listening. And your son is going to be good. God has
Him to you don't have to worry. I love u always and forever

May your gentle soul rest in peace. Before joining the U.S. Army, I worked in same establishment in Atlanta with your father Mr. Atabang. I am not surprised that you died while giving shoes to the homeless, a chip from the old block...that is how kind your father is....SSG Kingsley Dike
