"03 NOVEMBER reminds me of the Tearless grief that bleeds inwardly, Grief and sadness knits two hearts in closer bonds than happiness ever can and common sufferings are far stronger than common joys. Heaven knows I need never be ashamed of my tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying my hard hearts. Time heals grief and quarrels. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. When you speak of him, speak not with tears for thoughts of him should not be sad. Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort for his life was rich because of you.
Your dexterous wit will haunt us long, wounding our grief with yesterday, your laughter is a broken song; and death found you, kind and gay. We may forget those transient things, that made your charm and our delight, but loyal love has deathless wings, that rise and triumph out of the night. So, in the years to come, your name shall be as music that ascends, when honor turns a heart from shame…
O heart of hearts! O friend of friends! O father of fathers!
You are forever loved
though this life fades away
and all mortal bodies decay.
You will forever be my beloved,
my immortal betrothed,
my enduring flame,
my guiding light,
my compass rose
R. I. P."

"God saw you getting tired, and there was no cure. With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away, and although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. God has you in his keeping, We have you in our hearts. We will for ever love you."
"Papa ,in memory's garden we meet every day,resting where no shadows fall.Deep in my heart a memory is kept,of one i LOVE and shall never forget,Your live is a beautiful memory,your absence a silent grief.You fell asleep without goodbye, in God's care you rest above,in my heart you rest with LOVE.A cluster of memories sprinkled with tears,wishing God had spared you a few more years.Adieu pa"

Rest in peace."
"As we look back over time, we find ourselves wondering if we did remember to thank you enough for all you did for us? We wonder if we ever thanked you for the sacrifices you made, letting us all have the very best in life.
Papa, If we did forget to show our gratitude enough for all you did, we're thanking you now, hoping you knew all along, how much you meant to us all.
"The blow was hard, the shock was severe, only those who love can tell the pain, of what it meant losing you. To sit and talk with you, your advice, words of encouragement, lovely nature and utmost concern for others. Our loving memories will never die as days go by and years roll on. In our hearts a memory is kept forever. RIP Pa J.Orock."
"I can't stop thinking of the time we spent together from when I was a little boy till the point of your departure! I remember vividly the night we spent together before your departure and the moment i stepped out of the room, God decided to call you home. I hurt! Thank you for the love and care you showed me, thank you for the values you instilled in me.I will forever miss you ! Adieu PAPA"
"Alas today i say Adieu to the one i call PAPA
You nurtured me in LOVE, you taught me to LOVE
You nurtured me with integrity, you taught me to be GRACEFUL
You taught me to believe in GOD,and to HIM you have gone to MEET
Adieu PAPA,the vacuum cannot be filled,love you so MUCH"
"Papa, slow to anger, loving, caring, fatherly, always giving the benefit of the doubt. You ran a good race and fought a good fight, your reward lies ahead. Go thee well Pa. John, tell my dad George Ebai, its never going to be the same. Tell my siblings its a heavy load, but I will never drop it. Thanks for the love and blessing yoy gave my husband and I. You will be missed. RIP, Pa J.O"
"A great soul has departed, but the memories shall never fade. Your loss is huge, and I can only share your pain. May the soul that has gone, rest in peace. Keep faith and courage. I am sorry for your loss."
