"Chichi mu, chai!! My love ❤ continue to rest in our Lord till we meet to part no more. Forever in my heart ❤"
"Now I understand why I've had stronger thoughts of you than usual with the onset of the anniversary of your homegoing. I'm forever missing your smile, conversation and laughter. Until we meet again I'll hold our friendship dear to my heart and close to my soul. I miss my dear friend greatly!"
"Nnabuchi, it is one year today, you left to be with our LORD.
The memory of that devastating phone call, still fresh!!
The agony, pain, unanswered questions and uncontrollable flowing tears your demise has brought, is unimaginable.
Our solace is that, you are resting in HIM.
Chichi, we miss you so much!!
Continue resting in HIM."
"I don't even know what to write. I just have thoughts, memories, conversations in my head. I still read out whatsapp chats... Uncle Chichi, It is well. Till we meet at the feet of Jesus. Rest on."
"Nnabuchi, it is exactly one year today that you went to be with the Lord and I know you are at peace, but I miss you so so much. Chichi, how I wish I can explain this to my heart. I pray that we will be together again and where we will part no more, in Jesus name. Mummy is ever strong, glory be to Jesus. Nnam, continue to rest in the bossom of our Lord. I miss you Roy!"

"It's been a year and life will.never be the same. God rest your soul in eternal peace."
"Gone but not forgotten. No one will ever replace you. You were one of a kind. We still can't believe your gone. It's too fuzzy. Life will never be the same again."
"Chichi my love ❤,still can't hold the tears from falling. You are forever in my heart ❤. Rest on chichi mu,till we meet to part no more.
. Your cousin,
"Chichi, it's been 9months. Unbelievable!!
Your demise has been been painful!
Been difficult holding back tears especially today. Chichi, you made it a routine to travel to Nigeria on the day after Xmas every year to be with Iyam Nkechi, anti Oby and the entire family BUT NOT ANYMORE!!!
Your death brought people from the United States and all over to Aku, Nigeria on the day of your funeral including our late maternal grandma's family from Oturkpo, Benue state, Nigeria.
Continue resting in Him.
It is well.
"Finally summed up the courage to say goodbye.
Finally getting the chance to truly mourn your passing.
I miss you more today than ever."
....Never thought that when we communicated in January that would be the last. Glad that you were "in Nigeria Chilling", spending time with "Momsy". I am confident that the Lord that we serve has welcomed you home with open arms. I continue to pray for your wife, son, daughter, mom and cousin - for peace, comfort and strength. WE serve an awesome GOD, who makes NO mistakes....you ran a good race. I find solace in remembering, the new man you became in Christ...planing on taking trips with your church...giving your ALL to GOD! In this sad time, it is not for us to understand ..but to love and praise him through it all. Thank you for the guidance and council you provided my family. You have been a true friend. And until we meet again....rest well! Your friend ....Nicole, Cory , CJ Daley and mommy - Cynthia Ross."
"I am still in a shock but since all works for the good of those who trust in the Lord, I hope your wife, your children and your love ones especially your mother will pick the pieces of this powerful spiritual puzzle, put them together and have a wonderful life. To God Almighty be the Glory. Your life has been very rewarding for those who can discern using their spiritual eyes.
AGAIN, TO GOD BE THE GLORY. Knowing you was a blessing not in disguise but I learned to be encroached to my dear wife Josetta because nothing outside her presence made any meaning in my quest for being a better being and closer to Jesus
"Hello Ike. I went to your wake yesterday but got their too late. They had closed the casket when I got there. I got a picture from Charles Iweanoge. I came just to see your face and say goodbye. At the wake people kept talking about someone named "Chi-Chi" and "Uroy." I don't know who they were talking about. :) I didn't get to speak, but if I had, I would have said this about you.
Yes, Ike was a fun guy to be around. He always had a smile for you, and he made me laugh. He was friendly and jovial and all of those things people remember about him. But I would have told them that you were also a very confident man. You were not insecure, jealous or envious of other people, and you were not stingy, like a lot of Africans and Black Americans only caring about themselves. You liked yourself and cared about others, and that is what made you stand apart from others to me. Whenever I saw you you always had words of encouragement for me. You were generous and uplifting and even if we disagreed we laughed.
I wish I had seen you more especially since you were so close by. A misunderstanding led me to believe you had returned to Nigeria. Anyway, I thought about you with a smile and would ask John about you. I always remembered you telling me you knew I would make it big one day and you wanted to be around. You would joke and say,
"Hurry up Andrellos." It was one of the best compliments I ever got from someone who had only known me for a short while. (I hope I don't disappoint you Ike.)
I'm glad for your professional and personal success (beautiful wife and children). However, your biggest accomplishment to me was that you were not just a Nigerian or Nigerian American...you had become simply an American. You stood out like a peacock, but you could also blend in anywhere.
May God keep you and your family ...until we meet again Ike!"
"Wow can't believe you are gone. I remember all the gist and banter we would share when I would visit you guys. Still remember the first time i met you in 04 i think when you were still courting Your wife. I couldnt help but wonder who this guy was that came out of no where and carried my friend from houston to Maryland. You were full of life and a jolly good fellow. Who am I to question God? May your soul rest in peace. Mgbechi my darling friend the Lord is your strength He will see you and the kids through this dark period. God will strengthen and comfort you."
"Laa n'udo!nwoke obi o ma!"
"Laa n'udo!nwoke obi o ma!"
Continue to rest in His bosom.
"Bro chichi,so is true,O God!"
The past two days has been emotionally charged for me as tears flow uncontrollably, coming to terms that indeed this upcoming memorial service/wake keeping this Saturday (04/23/16) in Hyattsville, Maryland is really for you, Chichi!!! Unbelievable!!!!!
You were an exceptional son, brother, father, uncle, cousin and friend!!!
"I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Isaac. He was a wonderful man. He was kind and I could tell he loved his family. He was my attorney for several years. I am praying for you and the family. He will truly be missed.
"Tribute to my dear brother and friend 'Uroy'. They say rainbows are a promise of a new tomorrow, i have seen lots of tomorrow that has come and gone but i only wish for a "yesterday" when we were still together and the power to prevent what has just happened. It still pricks my heart whenever i remember the fact that you are no more, little did i know that January was the last time i would spend with you my brother and best friend. your death is an irreparable loss to everyone who knew you. Death how could you be this wicked and unreasonable, why my best friend, my brother, "His Execellency Uroy". God, give me the serenity and wisdom to accept the things i cannot change. Uroy your death has made me come to reality that life is a gift of time on earth which we should accept and spend well. My only consolation is my assurance that you are resting in the bosom of the Lord who has called you back to heaven for a greater work. Adieu my brother!! Adieu my best friend!! Adieu His Excellency Uroy!! Rest in Peace my brother.. ....... Edoga Valentine ifeanyichukwu_cousin."
I am still speechless.
Can't believe you're no more.
You were always there.
May the perpetual light shine upon him and his soul and all the faithful that departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen..
Nnaa nkeoma Chichi."
"As for God, his way is perfect. Yahwehs word is tested. He is a shield to all those who take refuge in him. - II Samuel 22:31
Uroy will miss you dearly.
Still speechless from the day I had you left us.
Can't stop crying.
My brother, my best friend.
You were always there for me.
I am glad to received Christ into your heart before leaving.
May God grant your Mum n anty Oby the strength to mourn you.
May His perpetual light shine upon you and may your soul Isaac Nnabuchi Edoga rest in the sweet blossom of the Lord and May all the souls that departed through the mercy of God rest in peace Amen.
Chineke anyi mazuru ihe nile.
"Its taken me a lot of courage to finally write this. Unc Chichi you were about to become a grand uncle....chai!!! Uncle Chichi see how many of us are genuinely broken by your departure. We loved you. Oh! You were a man of a kind and the impacts and memories we have of you are packed with how you were loving, humorous, very kind, considerate, forgiving and how you poked me. Your sincerity, bluntness and realness are worth mentioning. This gets me wandering why are good people taken early? If any of us who truly loved you had an incline when we spoke to you days before your memorable eexit that you were leaving us we probably would have told God please God not yet or made more forceful contacts with you. Oh noooo!! I'm glad you were saved. You admitted Jesus as your savior. You sent me gospel messages via whatsapp and now you have stopped. I watch my mum ("that wonderful sister of mine"), grandma Whom you celebrated and looked forward to seeing you soon. Now I'm speechless. Uncle!!!!!!! The good news is you have peace, no more worries, no more pain. Life is a journey and you walked it well. For those who knew you we are glad that finally God has separated the good crops from the shafts. It's sad but I'm gonna have to accept it and I know that none of us love you as much as God loves you. His love supersedes and that is our consolation that He knows best and He loves us too so He has no plan to make us sad. We are comforted by the Holy Spirit. It is well!! Keep resting in the Lord. You live on in our mind."
Your demise has been very painful!!!
Continue to rest in the bosom of our LORD and SAVIOR."
"We come forth like the flower and are cut down,we fleet also as shadows and continue not.
Chi-Chi you have stopped but as we continue in this journey,we shall always miss your jokes,care and smiles till we meet again.
U-Roy all i say is good-night.

The Edoga family of Agumoha Mgboko village, Aku, Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area, Enugu State of Nigeria laments again the sudden death of another illustrious son, Atty Isaac Nnabuchi Edoga on Easter Monday, 28th March 2016.
Chi Chi as fondly called, your unripe exit is one death too many in the family. In just four years 2012-2016, we recorded over eight deaths and most of them in tragic and inexplicable circumstances.
You spent last year’s yuletide with us in Nigeria and were full of life and vigor. You participated fully in two family events---The third anniversary of the gruesome murder of yet another colossus in the family, Bernard Ogbo Edoga and our annual general meeting on 26th December 2015. Only God knows what happened to you three months down the line in the United States. If your death was not a natural one, then vengeance belongs to God. Our help is in the name of the lord, who made heaven and earth---Psalm 124:8.
We will surely miss you, an astute legal luminary, amiable and peaceful gentleman to the core. You practiced the Christian faith to the best of your ability and we trust God to shower His mercies on your noble soul.
Sleep well in the lord our beloved son and friend while we persevere in the faith to be able to meet you on the resurrection day with the crown of Jesus.
ADIEU Chi Chi
Pharm Emmanuel Eddy Edoga
(For and on behalf of the Edoga family)"
"CHICHI my love ❤,you would have turned 51 today your birthday. I play the voice mail you left me on 03/20/2016 constantly in disbelief. My love ❤ continue to rest in the Lord,till we meet to part no more.Adieu! CHICHI MU.❤"
"Nwanne Nkem, you would have turned 51 exactly today your birthday but here we are, weeping and just wondering what happened to our one and only, always on point, 'Chichi'!!
Our God who is faithful to the letter shall surely comfort and uphold all of us especially, Iyam Nkechi (your mom) and Anti Obiageli. As for your two little children, HE shall remain their shield and defense!!!
Chichi, continue to rest in the bosom of our LORD, SAVIOR and REDEEMER until we meet to part no more."
"GOOD NIGHT! CHICHI
He would have been 51 today, but it has pleased Almighty God to call him home 10 days ago on Easter Monday.
My amiable brother-in-law, Attorney Isaac Nnabuchi Edoga, aka Chichi has taken an eternal sleep; never again to be worried by earthly strives.
He slept in the Lord at his residence in Beltsville, Maryland, USA. I miss his jokes, his smiles and the baritone voice as he yelled "KS".
Sleep on my brother. Lay down your head upon the Saviour's Breast. Take a deserved rest in the Lord. Sleep on till we meet at the feet of Jesus Christ. Chichi, Good night."
"May your gentle soul rest in peace, our God knows better."
"Isaac Rest in Peace ,you were such a loving person. You will forever be missed."
"I still cannot believe you are gone. Will miss you forever Isaac. Still in shock but it's all God's doing. RIP my friend."
"Issac my friend, I pray that you rest in eternal peace in the bosom of the Almighty God the father. I will miss the talks, laughter and wisdom you shared. Until we meet again my friend, you will remain forever in my heart and mind. God already knows just how much this hurts all of your loved ones left behind. I'm praying for your children to gain understanding and peace in this time of sorrow."
"Chichi nwanne nkem!!!
God knows it all.
We have too many questions than answers.
Our God that sees and know all things has all the answers to our too many questions!!!
This is so painful!!
But HE is our comforter.
Continue to rest in His fullness.
There's no more pain, betrayal, agony and deceit!!!
"Goodnight my brother in law. I could see in your face the reluctance to travel back last January 15 when you were in my house and Oby was to take you to the airport. What is a mystery to us is very clear to God. We rest our case. We will forever miss you. God decides you should take eternal rest. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord."
I heard this news today and I haven't cried since my sister Obianuju passed away. Man! Chi Chi- U Roy
My childhood buddy , my table tennis partner. We started out as two little kids in GRa and we cut a path from. Your house on Park Ave to 28 Savage so we could all hang out, I always thought I'd come over to let you know how special you were to me and how it was so good to have you as another brother. You and Onyedi. Your Mum and the good Engineer put in so much into you, Oby and Greg.
I'm rambling but I rue that I'll never get s chance to thank you got those days in Enugu. RIP U ROY
Okpara Iyam Nkechi!!
"I was shocked beyond belief to hear about your demise from a friend. So sad for such a young man to die suddenly leaving a young family behind. What a life, what a world. God knows best why this has to happen. RIP Uroy."
"Nwanee nmadu!!.....what happened?
The news of your sudden demise has left us all in shock and It's been so difficult to process...but God knows best. Rest in peace Chichi!!"
"Bro chichi still can't believe it.."
"Goodnight my love...."
"My best friend, my everything thing"
"I miss you so much."
"Chichi, God knows best, may the good Lord look after your family."
"I never got to meet you but you cousin Victoria is my childhood friend and I can feel her devastation at your very very untimely passing. I can only pray for a peaceful rest for you in the great yonder."
"Great Semper we will forever miss you. Since I reconnected with you at our DC convention and met you at subsequent conventions I have been so delighted to see your transformation to a God fearing decent and fine gentleman. Your son spent a lot of time with my kids during our Atlanta convention and I was so impressed with how he conducted himself and I have no doubt that you took your responsibility as a dad as a priority.
I will forever remember the uplifting prayers you offer during our conventions. We have lost a gem, a fine gentleman and we can only pray that our God who recalled you shall continue to provide for your loved ones especially your children and I know your son that I met has a bond with you and may have difficulty adjusting that your physical presence with him has been cut short. Adieu Great Semper you have answered the heavenly call so early but like Apostle Paul wrote you fought the good fight, you finished the race, you kept the faith and we pray that our good Lord the righteous Judge will award you the crown and welcome you into His heavenly abode from where you will watch over your loved ones and your Semper Family. Adieu Bro Isaac sleep peacefully in the bosom of the Lord."
"Chichi, I don't know you but i feel like i do. Your cousin Mercy is my best friend and the past 3 weeks it has been all about you and your conversations with her. Saw your pictures and videos and heard all the good things about you. It was a big shock to hear about your death. So so sad, my friend cannot stop crying. May the good Lord grant your mum ,your sister and your kids the heart to bear this terrible loss. May your handsome soul rest in the bosom of the Lord."
"Chichi, i cannot tell you goodbye BUT goodnight!!
Continue to rest in His bosom.
We shall meet to part no more!!"
Tears can't just stop flowing, Chichi!!!
What a gift!!
You were so gentle, full of life!!
The aura you exuded was unprecedented!!
Trusting our redeemer and comforter, Jesus Christ to uphold each and everyone of us especially, Iyam Nkechi and anti Oby."
"You always called me "Obby the chic" with that gentleman smile & a funny joke and I teased you back about......... Saw u last @CIC convention in ATL. You gave me your word on the deal we made. Our hearts are broken, but God knows best and called U home on resurrection day. May you rest in Peace in His Bosom. I pray for Divine mercy and consolation on Mgbechi and the children, In Jesus name. Amen"
"ChiChi.....We have been brothers since the first day and will remain so. We gonna miss Uroy badly. I know I'm already missing him much. We were at the NY convention chatting till about 6 am with other Sempers including my brother, VCJ, Chike, Victor E, Nnamdi, and of course Uroy. We were told by staff to keep it down. We all moved to a new spot and kept on with reminiscing our days in CIC and Enugu in general! We all had flights to catch the same morning but we didn't care. Just being around each other at times is so priceless! We just couldn't get enough of the other. The love and camaraderie was just too much....the way it should be with each and everyone of us. Thanks so much for all the prayers during our conventions. Rest in peace, brother."
I had a chance to hang out with you at the Miami Convention and really enjoyed the conversation we had. You were full of compliments and very encouraging. You were always calm and uplifting.
At the Atlanta convention you told me you will see me in Abuja, not knowing we were seeing for the last time.
The claws of death snatched you prematurely from us but I thank God you in a happy place now. We will continue the journey that you were part of before leaving us and do our best till we meet again. You will be sorely missed."
"Nwoke oma!chai! Hmmmmm De chichi! O gini bu nka!"
"Chichi!!!!!!!! My love, what happened? I spoke with you just days ago.We were cracking jokes and laughing so hard.Chichi!!!! ,all my life I have known you, you've brought nothing but joy.chichi mu, It's very hard to deal with your loss. You are terribly missed.Chichi my love ❤ you will forever be in my heart.Chichi!!! Roy!!!!!!! Nnabuchi!!! Adieu my love."
"Been extremely challenging, trying to process, and coming to terms with the news of your sudden demise.
What happened Chichi?"
This hurts sooooo much!!
Our eyes are stead on Jesus who is the author and the finisher of our faith.
Have a suggestion for us?
