"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""

"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."

"So where do I start? I first met you in Afghanistan back in 2013. I was in the PX with one of my Soldiers and I guess you noticed me, I paid for my stuff and walked out of the store and was standing outside waiting on my Soldier. You came out of the store and and started walking over to where I was standing and said can I talk to you for a minute, me being Active Duty and a SGT I was like what do this SPC want lol. You started talking and asked me if you could take me out to Chilli's that night. You was like I'm not from her and we only supposed to be here for the night. I told you that I was still at work and was not sure what time I was getting off, so when my Soldier came out of the store you made sure that you had my Facebook info and before I got back to work and logged on to Facebook you had sent me a friend request lol. We talked on Facebook for a little bit and then you asked for my Roshan number lol, I gave it to you, but we never got a chance to link up. I was shocked at how bold you were to step to me the way that you did lol. I was impressed, not to many SPC would have done that. I redeployment and we talked a few times on Facebook. You deployed again and I ended up coming to the same FOB you were on, but because of my job I still didn't get a chance to link up with you. Y'all were redeploying before I had a chance to establish a battle rythem lol. Now that you are gone I wish I had found the time to get to know you better, other than what I see on Facebook. RIP and I'm still praying for strength for you loved ones!! My heart really goes out to your son, because I could see how much he loved you."

"I'm still having a hard time grasping that you're no longer here with us. It hurts so much. I remember when you guys first moved here to the States. I remember my Dad bringing us over to your house and saying "These are your cousins." And then left! Lol it was so awkward. We all just looked at each other! And then Godwin and Glory broke the ice. Lol I remember coming there all the time. Seeing each other at family events, celebrations, ect. As we grew older we grew into ourselves. Figuring out life. But we always remained connected. When we both became parents for the first time, that's what brought us closer than ever. We always said we wanted our kids to grow up together and kicked ourselves for being too busy to make time. I promise to do all I can for Emory as I know you would do the same for Aaliyah. You were such a family man. You always would say "Yo we need to do a family get together, cousins only." It saddens me that we never got a chance to make that happen but in your memory we will. I miss you so much! This still feels like a dream. Like I can't believe I'm writing a tribute about YOU! Smh. I know your spirit will always be felt even though you're not here in physical form. Our last encounter was at James birthday party. We had so much fun! It was a 'Family Affair' lol and even after that we made plans to hang out but time wasn't on our side. Continue to watch over us. I love you Cuzzo! Until we meet again!"

"Ting. It's very hard to believe that you are gone. I've watched you grown into an amazing man and an incredible father. You lived life as if it was your last and I know you truly enjoyed it. I remember kicking it years ago you stayed making jokes I laughed at everyone just to see your smile and I will do it all over again just to see your smile. I pray for you family and most importantly your son. Love you always. Until I see you again ting :)"

"It's been hard these last few days because this news has not become a reality for me. I feel confused in life often and this has really got me asking questions and wanting answers. Atting you were too young on the right track, you were ahead in life and I was so proud to see that. I will never forget picking you up because you needed a ride back in 2008 and having that grown man discussion with you. In 2015 you were a full grown man you reversed course and stood out among your peers. It pains my heart when I think of your son Emory but I hope you are in a better place. Watch over us and guide us so that when it is our time we will meet again and celebrate in the afterlife."

"It is such a blessing to know you wur apart of my life!! You always looked out for my son and I and not only did we have great moments we learned a lot from each other. I remember u telling me about how your bunkies had amazing care packages sent from their loved ones and I had u write a list of alllllll the things ur heart desired lol i promise I stayed in Walmart almost 3 hours that night I would not leave until everything on that list was in my cart!! Then when u bought Emory and Ace matching jordans they were best friends. I also remember when u tried to teach me to drive lol u had a brand new car u barely even drove yourself and you trusted me enough to practice in it. We def had our differences but I can and will always agree that you were an amazing person and extraordinary father!! Much respect to you and I pray for your family and best friends to find peace in this tragic time. See you on the other side love I know you are the freshest angel up there ;)"

"Little brother, why do you have to leave so soon? This is a journey we'll all someday embark on, yet yours has created a huge vacuum in our hearts 'cos you were so full of life and love.  Why did God look on?  Why couldn't He send the bullet back to the sender?  Who are we to question Him? but I still wanna know why it happened  at that moment when you were doing what His word tells us to do?  Feed and clothe the poor.  Maybe, He needs you, a young and strong man up there to carry the weak and old.  I'll forever remember you and the poems you write for your mom.  I can hear her calling me as we sit to eat our breakfast to either read all listen to one of your poems on her phone.  No matter how bad our day is, your messages always put a smile on her face.  Ating, how can I look at Mama Vero on February 19th wishing me a happy birthday with you not in the picture anymore?  Please appear in our dreams and tell us what happened that faithful night. It's unbearable hearing the names 'casket' and 'funeral home' from anyone's mouth in the house so please let us know you are okay, that you are in a place of no pain. no stress and no sorrows.  A new flower has fallen from it's tree.  Pls God receive him and give him a resting place in your bosom.  God place your cold icy hands on our hearts to quench the burning fire.  May the good Lord grant each and everyone in this family peace and harmony and show  a smile on everyone's face as we celebrate Ating's life.  Ating, as I lit this candle tonight with it flames spreading into the heavens so shall your soul be lifted up high into the bosom of Abraham.  Anyone reading this, pls join me in singing:

'Oh God our help in ages past,
our hope for years to come,
our shelter from the stormy blast,
and our eternal home.

Under the shadow of thy throne
still may we dwell secure
sufficient is thine arm alone,
and our defense is sure.  

Rest in peace little brother, Da yie onua, adieu, adieu."

"We became friends in April of this year. It was so funny because we knew a lot of the same people. We met up at Gwinnett place after you broke your phone and talked for about a hour. We didn't want to leave. We got closer and Emory was my friend. You used to get jealous cause I always wanted to see him. We had a hard time with communication but we still remained friends. I'll never forget us being at the pool and you and Emory made me get my hair wet lol. Or when we were at your brothers house and you was doing that dance. I'll miss you. We have a bunch of memories. You are in a better place now. Love you ❤️"

"Still at a disbelief about you. I've known you since I was 10 years old. And whenever I was down you always gave the best advice and you always told me I made you proud because of how I always head up high. The only thing I can think about is when I started college and you got deployed and we would always skype and I would always check on you.I couldn't help but be so proud of the man you became. Life will never be the same without you. Forever in my heart. I love you. REST EASY."

I strive to be the person you were just living and enjoying life. From the cabin to panama to miami i have those memories.  A true definition of a real friend a person who bares my secrets a shoulder to lean on that person i called who would give me the right advise when i didnt want to hear it. I remember when i met you i was coming out of basic training for US ARMY  and you just got back from your first deployment and i told you what my job in the army was you said and i quote " oh im gone keep you around, and im gone keep you happy." And you did just that. Now its my turn to make you proud and be the person you saw in me.  Atting A. Eminue to say i love you is an understatement.  Ill end by saying see you soon brother.

"I met Ating through my best friend Destanye at Emory's birthday party. I noticed how loving and caring he was instantly! The way he looked at you while he was having a conversation was just so sincere. We started hanging out little by little and he became a great friend. Anytime he planned a gathering, he made sure to invite us, i tried to make it to every get together he had, and when I couldn't make it he would get sooooooooooo mad at me! Lol. I still will never understand why this had to happen to such a special person, but i can't question it. When i found out on Sunday, i went in to work a mess..a guy came in and sounded and acted JUST LIKE YOU, i broke down immediately! The guy gave me a hug, making sure i knew everything would be okay. You were truly an Angel, so God called you home to serve Him! Watch over us Ating, be as protective in Heaven as you were here. I don't wanna say good bye, so I will say I will see you later. I love you, and I will miss you always! Rest in Paradise Baby Boy ❤

"I met Ating in 2011 on our deployment to Bagram, Afghanistan. He was so passionate about the Army, friends, family, and especially his Emory. He is a hero. He always went above and beyond for the people he loved and even strangers. He was a giver. He would sacrifice his own happiness to put a smile on others faces. He was full of life and so much wisdom to be our age. I remember when I first told Ating I moved into my town house January or this year, he said, "congrats, what do you need??" I said, "well all I need is a fitted sheet bc Khloe (my daughter) are sleeping on this bare mattress, but it's really late so I'll wait til tomorrow." 45 minutes later Ating was at my door with not only a fitted sheet but a whole comforter set, his hookah, & drinks. I say all this to say, he always went above and beyond for anyone, anytime, and in anyway he could. I'll miss his words of wisdom! Ating gives us all the strength to get through each day without you! This is a horrible and such tragic loss for us all, the world. I love you so much!"

"I met Ating in middle school at Sweetwater our 7th grade year. He was always so sweet to me and always so caring. He had the best personality, a personality that anyone could click with and easily become friends. That's why this is so devastating that someone so evil could take him from his son, family and close friends. So young and so much more life to live. My heart goes out to his son, his family and friends. This news is just so shocking and feels like a dream. You will be deeply missed Atting, rest well love!"

I pray the good Lord watch over your family strengthen them and lift them up watching over them. Fly high Ating you will be missed but never forgotten."

Atting May your precious soul rest in peace."

"Ating, just like everyone else that loves you I am total disbelief. I now have to hold on to our last memories together. I wish I would have hugged you a little tighter at your fight party! I thought that you were so amazing for agreeing to make the long commute from Gwinnett to Camp Creek so that I could lose the weight I need to lose to become a fellow member of the armed forces!

"Oh bro, I never knew I will have to say adieu. Goodbye was the saddest word I knew how to say best, knowing it hurts only for a while. Now I say hurts bad, bad, bad. for how long, I dunno. When you left Nigeria 15 years back, I said goodbye and got healed each time I log unto social media to see how good the distance made had grown far from how I last saw you and I was happy. Your birthdays were always accompanied with great posts.  
I learnt how to spell adieu when I heard your passing....i first wrote 'adew'. Ah! It hurts. Someone wake me up....its only you that can jolt me back, please update your wall. I need to see gym videos...just you in it;a very recent one.
What is life? Afghan dint take you, home did; how can I reconcile that?
You were a free spirited soul, your wall should tell you more....go there, go see for yourself, who knows it might bring you back;the wailing in writing! It might bring you back to me, to family.....but I want you to come back to mum and Emory. When they are happy, it will bring a glimmer of sunlight to my face. It will make all smile again, it will restore us all.
Who took away our sunshine? As if all elements of weather mourns you, there has been no sunshine in Akwa Ibom. Even mother earth mourns you oh child. Even August had to run out cos it couldn't stand the weary.
With so much heaviness in my eyes, bleeding heart and a pounding head but in total submission to the will of God the Father, I pray your soul finds eternal rest in God's bossom. You had so much in mind but God wanted his angel back; so go on brother. Go away from this world. He could only kill the flesh not the soul. Your beautiful soul wasn't meant for this world.
It's the thought of reuniting in eternity that gives me refuge. Your death taught me lessons and gave me a platform to think, not about me but others too. Adieu sweet little bro. Till we meet to part no more. #Pray For consolation upon mum, she is hurting. Sleep in perfect peace. Destiny loves you. Adieu"
