Daddy,
  Death ends a life, but not a relationship.
All the love you created is still here and all the memories are still here, that is my consolation.

It still doesn’t make any sense to me, but God’s ways surpasses human understanding and HE never makes mistakes.

You live on,in the hearts of everyone you have touched and nurtured while you were here.

Exactly one year ago today, you were laid to Rest. May your Soul continue to Rest In Peace. You are sorely missed. I love you forever. Keep Resting in Peace ❤️

Hey Dad,
   They say that time is supposed to heal you, but honestly, I haven’t done much healing. The pain won’t go away, I’ve only learned to live with it. 

Grief really has no timeline, it hits me constantly without a warning. One minute I’m okay, next minute I’m not.Memories of you will never get washed away, I’ll carry them with me forever.

It doesn’t make any sense to me now, but God’s ways surpasses human understanding.

I miss you sorely, I miss you every single day. I love you forever. Keep Resting In peace ❤️


One year gone, never forgotten.

Happy Posthumous birthday my first love! It’s so strange to not have spoken with you on a day like this, I remember your last birthday, when we all sent you a cake and I promised myself to do better this year. I never knew it would be the last birthday we would celebrate with you. I still hurt knowing you left us too soon, but I know you’re in a better place and I am so blessed to have experienced the love of a father like you. I miss you Daddy, I just want to talk sometimes, but it’s ok! I cherish every memory I have of you, your words of encouragement and wisdom I will never forget. I miss you daddy and I will love you forever. My children and I will remember you forever. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord Daddy ❤️❤️❤️

It would have been your birthday today man m. May your soul keep resting. Today, even in tears, your memories warm my heart. I’m glad I came through you. I am proud to have had you as my father. I love you daddy! Heaven gained an angel when you left us. I will tell my kids about you, I look forward to that. I pray God sends you to me through my seed, He would bring me all the comfort I need if He answers my prayers. I miss you so much! I love you numero uno, forever and a day more.

My love for you will never falter, it’s till forever ❤️❤️

Adieu My Friend
We do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep'. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
Today we honor a man who was the epitome of Christian Hospitality—a man who knew how to show unconditional love and bring out the good in everyone. Today, we remember Goddy —a man of strong character and conviction. A man who will be truly missed. I wish I could be there in person to pay tribute to a great friend’s memory, but circumstances made it impossible. Yet, I could not let today go by without sharing my memories of this wonderful man—my friend and my brother.
He is was everything I envisioned true friend to be—loving, kind, generous, compassionate, caring, and simply remarkable! He had a beauty that shined from the inside out. Always giving both of himself and of his resources and never expecting anything in return.
While I will never get the opportunity to sit near Goddy again, I feel honored and blessed to have gotten the opportunity to know him. I know you are in a better place now; far from the hustle, bustle, pain and heartaches, as much as I say that, I wish this did not happen and I can see that smile and twinkle in your eye again!
Goddy, your departure has touched me so deeply.

Dear daddy, at first I didn’t understand that you were really gone. I remember seeing you before going to school that morning. When I got back, I didn’t see you anymore. Eventually, They told me that you had gone to be with God. It broke my heart, I wasn’t expecting this to come so soon. 

I miss you so much daddy. I miss how you always took care of me, made sure I had everything I needed. You had such a big heart. I will never forget all you taught, including how to be kind and content. 

You were A great Man, I hear stories about you and I’m so proud. You were kind,you had a good heart and your love was  unconditional. 


Rest In Peace Daddy. 

Chukky loves you forever

Numero Uno ❤️

Shared by Kasi Ad on February 24, 2019

Daddy, this is the most difficult thing I’ve had to do, writing this. I thought I had met with life’s struggles till you passed and I find myself still in denial, struggling with acceptance every day. 

I’ve spent each day since the 23rd of January trying to block out the reality of your passing but it smacks me in the face everyday.

I miss you so much, my pat on the back whenever I needed it, my number one cheerleader, my hype-man. My dose of validation if I ever needed it. You made me seem like a perfect being, always highlighting my highs. You would sing songs of praise for even the faintest achievement and to you it was like a milestone no matter how insignificant it was to me. You took every chance to remind me how proud you were of me even when I felt I was failing. 

I remember the last time I saw you and you pulled me into a hug and a kiss on my cheek, I had no idea it was the last time I’ll get to spend with you. I find myself praying to turn back the hands of time so I could tell you I loved you more often than I did. But my comfort is that you knew how much we all loved you. You were our pillar of strength

It resounds in my ears exactly what you would say me. “You can slow down take your time and grieve but ALWAYS pick yourself up, pull yourself together and MOVE, KEEP GOING“ “This is a minor setback on your path”. That lesson is what I am clinging to trying to get through this.

I wondered how you always remained cheerful, positive and calm even in a storm. I’ve chosen to adopt that outlook in life. Nothing ever phased you no matter how dire the situation. To you, it will pass, much like this one. You always extended your generosity to whoever was in need and treated everyone fairly. And you never let anger sit in your heart.

Your sacrifices for us will never be forgotten Dad.

I know HQ(like we’ll fondly refer to you and mom) is down! But we will keep pushing, that is what you’d want for all of us.

Your lessons on contentment, fairness, forgiveness, peace and love will live with me till the day I leave this earth. The prayers and blessings you gave us, God in his infinite mercies will fulfill all in a thousand fold.

I know with God, this void in my heart will be filled in time.

My daddy, My first love, 

Man m, Number 1! Ga nke oma.

Rest on in the lord big guy, my love for you is forever.

Your Doctor will make you proud.
