"Jenny my loving daughter, it's five years but it seems like five days. The reality of your departure with your mum is still like a mirage. We are just holding on to your memories. Jess and I are still struggling but trudging on. Jess was very sad on 26th of May because you and your mummy were absent at her graduation. But I told her you were present and happy for her. Keep resting in peace with your mum in God's bossom. Continue to pray for us."

June 3rd 2012 should never have been created. When I see God, I would ask Him why He made that day. That day, a combination of factors including corruption of the system made it the worst day in the history of my family. That was the day a Dana airline flight crashed and killed my dear wife Nancy Ibe and my loving daughter Jennifer and 151 others including my wife's relation Mrs Maria Okwulehie. The agony and pain will never go away easily. I pulled my wife and children away from our comfort zone in America to Nigeria to see if we will help to make Nigeria a better society. My friends told me I was crazy. They were right. This is the result—June 3rd. Nancy was the beacon of light in our family. Jennifer was the sunshine in our lives. As we mark the fourth year of their transition today, Jessica and I with the entire Ibe and Okwulehie families thank you all for your continued prayers. May their souls and the souls of all faithful departed continue to rest in peace. Amen."

"Hi Jenny, miss your mum. Been learning from the Word that I should be rejoicing instead as both of you are resting in Christ Jesus.  Have to believe, so that my name will be written in the Book of Life.

For the cause of your untimely deaths: man's wickedness, man's failure to acknowledge Jehovah God, God forgive mankind today.

Thank you God for answering and starting  to heal the world! In Jesus mighty name I have prayed. Amen.

Christ's Holy Spirit continue to offer comfort to all pertaining to Nancy and Jennifer. Thank you for shielding and protecting all of us from further harm . In Jesus mighty name. Amen."

"Hey Jennifer! It's been awhile, y'know? Time goes by really fast nowadays, I wish you were here so I could just talk to you about life and all the unraveling thoughts that go through my mind. Can you believe I'm graduating high school in a few months? I'm thinking of going to college in New York or I might just go to Atlanta--- it's hard to tell where I might just end up in a couple of months. I've been back and forth in Nigeria, having faith of reconnecting with your dad and Jessica. Sometimes I wish you could just tell me that you're proud of me and I get really sad because, I miss your voice a lot.
   But then, I'm reassured by God about how proud you are of me. There's not a day that goes by where I don't think about you, and the memories we shared. You were such an amazing person & you inspired me so much while we were still kids. I'm almost 17, and I tell myself all the time that it's time to put on my "big-girl" pants & stop questioning God for taking you and your mom. I'm happy that you both enjoy God's presence everyday & as it is Thanksgiving Day, I want to let you know that I am very thankful for the times we shared. The times we cried together, laughed together, played together, learned together, ate together, watched tv together, and etc will NEVER be unappreciated. I miss you everyday but, I'm glad you can see how far I've come. Three years ago, I was broken & didn't care about life or the world. Today, I won't say I'm completely healed however, I am a stronger person than I was when I found out about your death. Thank you for being one of my greatest best friends ever, and I will continue to work and strive to make a difference in the lives as others as you've done in the lives of the people who'll always love you."

What a world Jenny my loving daughter. You would have been 15 years today if not for that stupid dana crash that took you and your mummy away from us. The house is quiet today and all your songs are in our heart. Jess and I are still miserable without you. I still have your picture in my wallet. But God loves you more. Say hi to mummy. Sing a song for us in Heaven."

"Little one, I think and talk about you often. Today, I am surer of Almighty God, Christ Jesus, Holy Spirit, saints no longer with us - like you, and saints here with us. And I am smiling.

How great is our God! God is indeed on the throne."

This tribute was added by Rosemary Ekeada on 3rd June 2014

"No human mind can conceive the magnitude of you and your mum's death. Therefore, I thank God for working it all out for each of us, individually. Though we may not see it, today, his Holy Spirit is at work in us, comforting and guiding us to a place of understanding and peace. So that we will not fail or faint in lifting his name higher. To a point where he will show /shows himself as Jehova - Lord God Almighty. I am certain of it."

Nancy and Jennifer were two of a kind. Nancy was the wind beneath my wings. For fifteen years She made me soar to great heights. She was all I needed to excel and I excelled. Jennifer was the sunshine in my life. She brought the sun when the clouds gathered. She made every frown on my face disappear. She made joyful sounds. Both were my wind and my sun. Two years now, Jessica and I have not soared and the clouds keep circling. They tell us time heals all wounds, what a lie. Yet to heal but maybe still could heal. Our help is in the name of God who made heaven and earth. Eloi Eloi Lama Sabactani. Mary the mother of Jesus, Ora Pro Nobis."

This tribute was added by Ike Ibe on 30th September 2013

"Jenny, Jenny, Jenny. Na wao. It's not over untill you have sang. The world is totally different without you and mummy in it. Nothing makes sense anymore. We look at the sky all the time to hear a whisper of your voice and the sound of your songs. Jenny, Oh Jennifer."

This tribute was added by Rosemary Ekeada on 11th June 2013

Rest on Angel."

We Love and miss you, Jenny."
