Death comes as a thief who doesn't knock at the door or come without the knowledge of anybody. Its difficult to believe but its real that the cold hand of death gripped you, took you without saying goodbye. Who I'm I to question God's will. My prayer is that the Almighty God should grant you eternal rest in the bosom of Abraham. I missed you and I will always do. Daddy, sanga sung (goodbye).

We prayed and wished that papa got well quickly when our friend Ndidi called on us, FGGC Potiskum class of '85. I even wished at that moment that we could be physically present in Umuahia on behalf of our friend. We submit to the will of God Papa. You lived well. Our friend is an evidence of good a background. We are proud of you. I think I have a faint memory of Papa's visit to see Ndidi in Potiskum back then....Nd, correct me! You cared for your family.
