I woke up today,
Sad and tearful,
When I remember the memories we shared,
But when I look back ,
I see the beauty you left behind in me,
Your smile in my smile,
My cheek lines  I took from you ,
I smiled and and I saw you smiling back at me,
My greatest fan and cheerleader,
Keep on cheering Nedim,

I wish you are are here with us,
But I am consoled knowing that you are always with me,
free from the physical limitations of space and time ,
I will still drink that beer like  we used to drink together ,
As I toast to you,
Nedim, Nnamuku,okolobia esa,
Keep on resting ,
I know you are fine, I know that it is all going to be well."

"Dearest Daddie

You live.
In you, the Spirit of life.
Your strength,
'10 men' they called you.
Inspired by the stories of your youth and selflessness,
Your love for mum and us,
I have faith to climb mountains.
In those final moments,
You looked
And heard that great call and answered,
Now you live forever.
Love you so much, Daddie."

"Eyes open or close
Thoughts and memories of you
Of the 'ifs' and the 'dids'
The 'dids' - memories of you, your love, your devotion to family, your sacrifices for us
The 'ifs' - how I could have had more memories of you
Now, it is goodbye to the 'ifs'
The 'dids' are all I am left to cherish.

Your love for me,
I couldn't know all of it.
I couldn't comprehend it all.
You held nothing back from me.
You gave everything for me.
Memories of the day I knew your love for me fill my mind.
Though a glimpse.
It filled me with awe.
With the consciousness of a son.  
I know a father's love.
A dad's love.
Quiet. Unshaken.
Like the tip of the iceberg, when expressed.
With words, indescribable.
Full of dreams and inspiration.
It was your love, Dad.

Your life. Selfless.
You wouldn't see lack and not bring relief;
Hurt and not bring comfort;
In each person, life brought your way,
You shared a part of you
Your life many live now.

My children talk about buying you super hero toys; I wish I had bought you one cos that's what you are - super hero;
Super hero books they want to read to you,
Typed messages on the phone for you
Each word of how much they love and miss you.
How much we all will miss you.

How are you? Hope you are okay?
It was always you who would ask first. Even now Daddie I know those are the questions you are asking me.
Same answers I give to you now
Daddie, we are fine. We all are fine.
Aways praying for me.
May not hear those prayers from you again but I know your prayers for me were answered.
As always as I end my call, and now this call
Thank you daddie
Love you, Daddie!

Your son,

"Dearest Diokpa

My diokpa (as I call him in the quite of my mind), my days with you have not been long enough, no they have not. I remember those very few nights of general discussion from your days in St. Anthony Ubulu and the various notables from my homeland you met whilst at school there. Then the Asaba years, your days also in NNPC; the intrigues and turning points in your career with NNPC. We talked books too - where you displayed very keen interest in autobiographies of culture icons across the globe.

What about those nights we talk investment - in sundry investment vehicles and your perpetual encouragement to all around you to live frugally so they can set something aside for posterity. I remember how we traded investment ideas and concerns.

Golden forever indeed will be the several ways you have been a father to me and the love and friendship your extended in your characteristic loving way to every member of my extended family and even friends  inquiring about each by name.

I am consoled though, yes I am, that this discussion has not ended. Only the essence has. We will meet again 'my diopka'. Just rest well for now."

"My Dearest Daddy,

I write these words with heartbreaking sorrow knowing that I will not see you in the physical again but yet, with an unexplained joy knowing that you have gone home to rest. You said we shouldn’t use the word die and I know you didn’t die

You were and will always remain the man who I am and will be forever proud to call my dad. You were an embodiment of goodness, humility, discipline and faith. Your deep love and belief in humanity was extraordinary and you always saw the good in people.
You believed in me. You were my cheerleader, ever present, ever encouraging, never giving up on me. I knew I could face anything because you were there to console and encourage me.

I really did pray and hoped that I see you again but God knows best. You will forever remain my hero, my champion and the one who I remember with deepest love and respect.
One day, we shall meet again in that beautiful land and it’s going to be an awesome reunion.

Nedim, rest in peace and may the angels lead you home

Nkemdilim Rita Omogolor"
