"Hey darling
You turned 21 today
The days before this day i went through alot
I didnt know how this day was going to go
I prayed for strength
I made it to the end of the day
but without you
Ashi i could only imagine the turnup in heaven
The 19th of june will never be the same for me
Soar...
Happy birthday my handsome Angel
And for everything and with everything in me i wish you happiness and more smiles
I made it through your first birthday without you
I will always have that lovely space in my heart reserved for just you darling
That space where i cherish every time and every memory you gave me
and forever make a continual wish that they never change.
You shine so bright even with the time you had. You made it impossible to forget you. You made the simplest of things mean the world. You made the simplest moments this girls happiest. Thank you
Happy birthday my shooting star i will always Love you babe."

"Hey b
How are you doing love
I thought I was doing okay
Last week and this week haven't been the best
The few okay days gave me the wrong idea
My habits are coming back
Am starting to cut important people off again
It's really hard and am trying not to
I just feel really tired and everything gives me aches
But it's okay it's life now anyways
It's your birthday in a few days darlings
So many thoughts are going on in my head
What you would have done
I guess all I can do now is imagine
There's a new song by banky W it's called heaven
It gets to me everytime
I just miss you so much
Pls keep smiling darling
I love you always"

"Hey baby
It's oby's birthday today (your Benyin) I know you already know that but I want to say happy birthday to her for both of us but don't know how to feel about this. I cried today even when I told her not to cry. It's sad babe... It's bad enough your not here to say it yourself. She has gone on and on how you wee meant to do a countdown for her birthday like you promise...it's heartbreaking are we meant to get through our birthdays without you?? We miss you baby...so much... Even though she tries to hide it I know a big part of her wants to hear you say the words happy birthday to her( please do if there's a way). Then again knowing you I am certain yout turning-up up there for her. I miss you saying tell my Benyin I said hi and me frowning caus I found out it means my love but then again you never stopped you kept letting me get jealous lol. Please keep watching us and please look after oby (yout Benyin) I love you always babe. Ekam."

"Ashi boo, it's been 39 weeks. Today, your big sis walked down the aisle and I believe you're there right now smiling from ear to ear. I wish you could send me pictures like every other time...but oh well that's what life has become. My birthday's on Tuesday and I've been crying so much lately, the thought of not getting any form of notification from you is frightening and I don't even get to be mad at you. Same time last year, you were doing a countdown....how did we get here brother? Pop a bottle for me....love always, Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

Love you baby brother....forever and a day more....Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

"A lot is happening recently
I really need you to talk to
I really need to rant
To get it all out of my head
Everything is too much for me to take
I get more irritated each day
Am starting to hate someone I shouldn't
Am too sensitive
I want to scream but I can't
I want to cry really loud but can't
I have to hold it all in
But then again there's you who has been gone 8months
I really miss you babe
I really need you here
Can't we really just wake up
Why does this have to be our reality
Why don't we have a say in this
I just really wish this wasn't our lives now Conrad
I really do miss you
Ekam loves you"

"Ashi boo, it's been 35 weeks baby brother. My week was alright, I started work, well it's just a summer contract. It's the same place I worked last year but a different position. It brought back memories of last summer, my happiest days and my saddest moments are all there. I talked to and about you there all through the summer and mourned you there towards the end of the summer. It's all good baby brother....that's what they say. But Mama said no one should say that because that's a lie, so no it's not all good but we will keep pushing through. I love you always, Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

"Ashi boo, it's been 8 months! 8 months! I'm sitting here in disbelief, not sure if it's been longer or shorter in my head but as usual, it just doesn't feel right. I started my new job on Monday and I'm still trying to get used to the whole new schedule thing but it's been good though...I miss you udim and I'm trying so hard to do great things. I know I've let you down but just give me a bit of time, I'll redeem myself....love always, Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

"Ashi boo, it's been 34 weeks without you. You know I spent the longest time today wondering whether or not time exists in heaven. I was chatting with someone and then it got too late where he was and it reminded me of all the times we missed each other's calls because of the time difference. I also realized that I still do not believe this whole thing but like I know it's true, I don't know if that makes any sense but I know you understand me...enjoy life on the other side baby brother. Save everything pink for me....we miss you udim...we all do. Love always, Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

Only God knows how much Ive fought laying this flower,  but I don't know how to ignore for such a long time.

Just keep praying for us.
Too much love

"Ashi boo, it's been 33 weeks without you. There's so much I want to say to you. You know Kendrick dropped an album and it's LIIIT! I'll give anything to hear you disturb my ears about how Kendrick is everything and all, I even feel guilty listening to the songs without you. I found words that kind of express how I feel and I personalized the words a bit, here goes nothing...

"I pray every night I could see you one last time
I look in the clouds as if for a sign
I go to sleep crying, I wish you were here
But there in my dreams you often appear
That beautiful smile I see on your face
Assures my heart you're in a better place
I knew you were special but not just to me
How so many people loved you was clear to see
The day you were taken my heart was so broken
I knew there were words I shouldn't have left unspoken
I miss you so much but I know you understand
I can't wait for the day I get to hold your hand
As we walk down the road that is paved with gold
We will hear all the stories we were once told
And there we will see Him, so beautiful and strong
And we will know this is where we finally belong
So soon I will be there and I know you will wait
As you take my arm through the pearly gates
But till then I will keep my head high and know it will be OK
Until we can be together again one day."

Love always, Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

"The thoughts that hunt me always
the regrets
the answers I will never get
I keep thinking Conrad
What if I was given longer time with you?
Will we have worked out
Will we have been together forever?
The sad truth about this is i'll never find out
and this hurts me deeply
I wasn't given a chance
I will never know
what would it have been like?
what kind of cruel fate is this?
this thoughts keep going on and on
for me its never
I feel like my life is all about my opportunities being taken away from me
I can't proof myself
Am starting to have weird ideas
I feel am not good enough
I feel I can do better but am not being given a chance
No one seems to listen
No one seems to care what I can do
and even life babe
Life didn't give me a chance with you
I MISS YOU."

"There are days when I try so hard not to be sad
I try to seem happy but fail
This is one of those
Am trying my best to smile today
Am looking for distractions
Am trying to concentrate on my work
Am trying not to think
But nothing is working
I just really miss you
I just don't want to feel alone
I am tired
Everything that made me happy doesn't make me come close to happiness
The worst is I still keep trying and failing
Am hurting and can't deal
Does the heart really heal cause mine keeps breaking
Am really tied of fake smile."

"Ashi boo, it's been 32 weeks. My life has been such a struggle lately, school is killing your girl. I miss you telling me not to let myself get ill due to stress. I miss you worrying about everything I do. I miss you udim.. your girl is finishing exams next week...can you believe it coz I still cannot especially because of how crazy this past year has been. Well baby brother, I have so much gist for you, you know I'm your most reliable amebo source and I hope you have gist for me too because I can't tell you how I miss our gossip. Sleep on baby boy, love always, Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

"It's April fools day babe
Exactly a year ago today I woke up in tears cause we were not talking
I woke the two Obys' up and the initially thought I was joking
I couldn't stand not talking to you for that long
It was the longest problem we ever had and took ages to solve
I hated the idea of us not communicating and was so messed up and this was what I thought was a long time
But you beat that record everyday now babe. Everyday is a day more of not talking to you and I don't even know how am making it through."

"Ashi boo, 31 weeks ago you left us. Today is April fool's day and I can think of so many pranks I would have tried on you, tried because I know I would've failed. Like everyday else, I miss you brother and I miss you more as days go by. I had a long conversation today with another friend that is  dear to my heart, he made me realize that to a large extent, you are lucky. Ashi, everything in me trusts that you made heaven and isn't that what we all want...stay happy baby boy. I'm living for you so please have fun for me too because you deserve it. Love always, Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

I feel like I cried at least three times a day, I spoke to one of your amazing friends and she's also just getting by and she misses you so much.

Your seeing everything happen
Everything go on without you
It's more than 6 months...your loved ones need you
You are meant to be the support..the one to lean on.
Just like every day but some days more I miss you
Am still scared of being alone Conrad
It's crazy when I think of everything but you remain an unforgettable part of my life.
I love you ❤️"

"Ashi boo, it's been 29 weeks without you. I feel like that's what Saturdays are to me, just another week gone by without you. Yesterday was our African show at school. The weird thing is the first year I went for it, I told you about a group of boys that danced so well, they danced yesterday. Their performance was so good that I wish I could tell you all I did so you could tell me, "I'm sure they ain't that good" I actually just heard you say that in my head...lol. I miss you udim... Love always, Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️""

"Ashi boo, I'm crying soooo much right now and i can't explain it...I guess there'll always be days like this where i cry more than usual. I miss you udim...I miss you so much. I keep doing things for us hoping they'll feel the same as they did, the thing I'm working on is beginning to scare me. What if I don't feel even a bit of what i ought to feel? I mean there's no you...Ashi boo am I being stupid???? Please say something to me baby brother....Your Benyin misses you udim...forever your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

"Ashi boo, it's been 28 weeks since you left ...28 baby brother. I actually had a very interesting week. There was a bomb threat on my campus and some racist guy also claims he's gonna kill one black person everyday. All of these had me thinking what our lives are truly worth. Anyway, school is also killing your girl but I'll make it through. Still working on that thing udim, God will make it a beautiful thing. I saw you two days ago but we didn't talk so I really do hope you're good...I know you are though coz that smile I saw could not have been fake. We haven't talked in a while though, I know I've been getting very little sleep but all of these will soon be over, Your friend will get this degree for both of us, so please udim just bare with me a little. Maybe just miss me half as much as I miss you....love always, Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

"Ashi boo, it's been 27 weeks baby boy. Someone told me I'm holding on too much and that's stopping me from moving on...truth is, i wanna be happy and people need to understand that you are a major part of that. Death cannot tear us apart! I miss you more everyday but I console myself by the fact that you have found true happiness. We constantly rejoiced  in each other's joy and so I am happy that you're happy, and you know I mean it, I still wish we could rejoice together though. One of our projects is actualizing  Ashi boo...we are forever Ashi and Oby. But udim don't you miss my gossip???? My mouth is itching from not pouring it to you sef...forever Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

"I had this thing in my head were I thought you'll be back at some point and everything we've been through in the last months would be a nightmare we once had...but it's 6months today Ashi...there's no sign of you, only memories left...everyday being a anniversary of something a year before...feels like yesterday I got the news...you left us Ashi without a word or goodbye, no hope of new memories being created, what is really the reason, why is this game going on? There are so many questions but no answers. I still miss you so much, I still cry, I still wish you were here, wish you never had to go through this all alone."

"Ashi boo, 6 months have gone by without you! I'm crying so much right now  and I can't even explain it. I've had the craziest week but you know that already. Udim I miss you so much, I'm taking my grad photos today and I can't stop crying, I would have sent you snaps, chatted all day after that but I can't have any of that and it's killing me! I've tried this new normal without you and it's not working....I miss my brother...I want to hear your epic replies to my non-stop gossip, I want to be able to tell people I can't tell them stuff coz it's our secret, I want to chat with you in a crowded room and make people around me jealous coz they can feel my joy. I went to make my hair and the hair dresser remembers you from two years ago...she asked about you, said some pretty scary stuff and you already know the rest. I love you baby brother... I should be consoled by the fact that you said you're always beside me, but sometimes it's just not enough. You saved my life baby boy and I won't let you down, it becomes clearer by the day that I'm living for us both...you live as long as I live..we will conquer the world udim...every breath I take, you take too...love always, Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

"It's February, the month of love and there's no you to make me feel loved. It's almost the 14th and nobody to buy me flowers like you did last year. Roxi and Alex think I am going insane. They said they will buy me all the flowers and take me to Bucharest but you know that nobody does it better that you my love. They also think I am crazy because I have finally accepted to say yes and be your girlfriend after you are no longer here, but you know what? I don't really care. I regret not telling you earlier and I am not going to keep regretting that. Last night, I read one of our arguements when I was so insecure because I saw your text with some other girl and you told me I would always have your heart. Now I regret arguing. I regret fighting over nothing and wish I could take those moments back to enjoy you. You would always have my heart and I would always have yours. I would try do something this month to remember you and the love we share. It will never be broken darling, even in your absence our hearts will still be together. Love forever...your baby❤❤"

Don't worry though udim, you said I'll be fine and I'm starting to believe that. Fine doesn't mean I'll be perfect, it just means I'll live with this because I have no choice. I miss you brother, soooo much. Loving you more by the day....Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"

"Ashi boo, today makes it 5 months since you left. That means it's been 5 months since I felt complete joy, 5 months since I looked at your photo and smiled because I had plans to steal a jacket or something else you had on. I sit here and think about how August 27th was for me before I heard the news, I regret waiting till later that day before dialling your number. I should have called you earlier that day, I should have kept you on the phone, I should have reminded you how much you mean to me baby brother. I'm sorry for letting you miss me udim, I'm sorry for owing you that FaceTime call until it only happened in my dream exactly a week after your death. Even in that dream, I remember telling you 'Ashi this is a stupid idea, how can we FaceTime when you are right in front of me?' Your reply was that you just wanted to talk to me and you promised it was going to be fun which it truly was. Ashi boo, I am truly sorry for not delaying my trip till summer. I wish I got to see you, I wish you could be with me and we could truly have fun in somewhere other than my dreams. The good news though baby brother is that I have started work on one of our projects and it won't be too easy to pull off, but I've got some awesome people involved and you know I will give my all to make it your ideal project. Ashi boo, you may be physically gone but you live on as long as I do and the world will know you were here, I promise you! Come say hello soon...it's been a while baby brother. Love always...Your Benyin ❤️❤️❤️"
