Dearest uncle Tony, words cannot describe the pain, the sadness and the utter struggle I feel in writing this Tribute about you.
I did not in the least expect I will be forced by this tragic and untimely circumstance to do this.
Uncle Tony — why now ?
You were the only maternal uncle I had.
You were always cheerful & friendly all the time and, there was never any moment I met you sad.
You were ever so welcoming, & loved entertaining friends & relatives often playing Onitsha music particularly (Ikem Mazeli ) and enjoying everyone’s company though you would never dance lol. Although we now mourn your loss, we will always remember & cherish the special memories we shared with you & pray that your gentle soul finds comfort in the Lord.
You will be sorely missed.

Bye bye Uncle

Love your Nephew

Uncle Anthony, as you’ve been laid to rest today, I pray that God in his infinite mercies will grant you eternal peace. I am grateful to God for blessing us with an uncle like you. You were the pride of our family, but since it pleased God to call you home now, who are we to question him. It truly hurts ,but heaven just gained an angel. Uncle Tony! Ezennia! May your gentle soul Rest In perfect peace. Amen. We love you always

It feels weird Popoi (as fondly called by you) writing this tribute for you. I still can’t believe that you are not with us anymore.

Uncle Tony was my only uncle from my mother's side, he was very special to me as well as, others.

My uncle was a very carefree, family-oriented man and I can bet he believed in enjoying life as you only have one life to live.

I’m so sorry that you had to go at such a young age. I Pray wherever you are May your gentle soul rest in peace and May you watch over all of the Elu’s Family.

Thank you for leaving me with good memories of you. Your name will live on forever and I will miss you ever so much.

Love Your Niece

Today and many other days brings special thoughts of you, your care and love for others and all the caring things you use to do.
And once more, it’s a reminder that life’s road is sometimes rough because the time you shared with all of us just wasn’t enough. For you were someone special and loved by many and who will always be remembered. So sending thoughts to heaven on the day you went away and hope that you know you are missed because whenever you walked into a gathering, it was like a breath of fresh air. Your smile and energy brightened everyone’s day  Your loss leaves a huge gap in our lives.
Sleep peacefully Tony, you will be sorely missed by all your family and friends.

From Mr and Mrs and Family

The unexpected sad news got to the Elu’s family on February 20th 2021 of your demise. The jewel of our family just left us unannounced. It was like a thunderstorm racking my head. The temptation came up to ask God why? But no one questions God. We give glory to God that you lived a fulfilled life. You left behind your wife and 3 children, your 10 sisters and numerous nieces, nephews, in laws, cousins , friends and well wishers. A sociable, respectful, humorous brother is gone!
Never mind, you will never be forgotten in our hearts. Our prayers will help you rest in peace. Go well Ezennia Tony ! Adieu Tony Walette! Adieu my only brother, till we meet to part no more. I love you always
Your sister,
Christy Okwuanga

Your Death came as a shock to me and as you sit in the arms of the Lord, my family, mourn your death. It’s all right as each of us have the Lord beside us as we say our farewells. Your body might be gone from this world but your spirit will live on in our hearts forever. Today we will mourn you in our own way as we pay a tribute to you.
We still wake up every morning hoping this is a dream, and it hurts knowing you are gone forever. I guess this is our final goodbye since we never got the chance to do so. Rest in peace Uncle, We will definitely miss you. Okwuayanga Nonso

Uncle Tony (Ezennia), I still can't believe I am writing a tribute because of your passing. Words cannot describe this difficult moment, but if this is the last time I get to say goodbye then I know I will do so with the knowledge that I consider myself blessed to have lived this life as your nephew. While we mourn today, we also take comfort in the fact that your mission on earth have been fulfilled. We thank the Lord for your life and bid you farewell until we meet again.

It must be difficult for everyone in the family. With the feeling you are loosing everything. Remember that trees lose their leaves every year and still they stand tall and wait for better days to come. The Lord is your strength.

I'm writing about my brother Ezennia with tears full in my eyes,Ezennia you left this world but your memories are still here, you are one of the most protective brother I've seen, a gentleman that likes everyone around him to be happy, he loves to cook for us and he enjoyed seeing us eating his food, he always likes friends and family around him enjoying. Ezennia is a family man and he loves his family so much. Ezennia you will be missed but GOD knows the best place for you, love you brother Rest in peace. From Onwa Nnenmawu Emencheta.

I want to first mention that my Uncle Anthony Ezennia Elu was a special man. Special because he had a gift of bringing people together. What I can remember is the get togethers he will host, which he will bring friends and family together as one. On the 20th February we lost a special edition to this family but we gained an Angel in the sky, without a doubt I know my uncle will look over us and guide us because that’s the type of man he was. A generous and caring man. So as sad as this day is let us take comfort knowing that he is in peace and that his beautiful children Jermaine, Declan, and Jacqueline will honor him and do him proud. Lastly, We all love you and miss you uncle, and save all of us a spot up in heaven.

Anthony Chukwudi Akaolisa Elu. To me? An Uncle, to others a Friend, a Brother, a Husband and most importantly a Father. A man who held roles in all of our lives has left us, but has been taken and welcomed in by God. As sad as it is to think about your sudden departure, we can find solace in the fact that your finally at peace, probably hosting one of your usual parties with our family up above. We love you and miss you and will hold on to the memories, the pictures, the videos and the feelings we shared with you. Have fun up there, and we will see you when we see you. - Myles
