Dearest Dad,

Hard as it seems, it's 365 days already !

I recall with nostalgia, that fateful afternoon of June 30th 2021, amidst the stress of moving house that I got the news , one that was to usher me into 'another world' entirely.

You were a good man, you were a peace maker, yes you were a dad I would always want to have.

I definitely know you are at peace with your maker.

I shall say 15 decades of the rosary in your honor this day and always.

Continue to rest in peace dad.

Eternal rest grant your departed soul.

Kennedy, you have summarised it all. All through at the Easter vigil mass, I kept thinking about how it’s the first of every thing without daddy and how that call to wish each one of us a Happy Easter will never come. Well, dad will forever be remembered for all he stood for. I pray and hope that we all remember this and not let him down in this life time. Rest on daddy♥️.

Dearest Dad,

Its the first ever Easter without you.

All through the Holy week, down to this moment, I kept thinking of you, how busy you got this period, skipping meals and almost sleeping in church even whilst your health was failing. I remember the stations of the cross session in the scorching sun of good friday afternoon and how you were always in front.

I would have cursed anyone who had predicted this time last year that you wouldn't be on this side of the world. How vain life is, how truly vain!

Your devotion and dedication to your catholic faith was second to none.

You were a good man and I am proud to be your son.

I definitely know that our loss, is Heavens gain.

May our Mother Mary, continue to intercede for you and us all.

It's not been an easy life lately but I promise to keep holding on. Please pray for us.

Mum has been holding on well but it's only human nature atimes for her to get overwhelmed with the reality of your passing.

Dad, it's resurrection Sunday and till we meet on that resurrection morning, continue to rest in peace.

Happy Easter Sunday.

Time seems to fly and time they say heals but, the void is always irreplaceable. It’s 7mths today since you left to rest in the bosom of the Lord.
My daily consolation is that you are in a better place and like mum says, you are watching over us daily. Rest on daddy till we meet to part no more ♥️.

Kennedy, you hit it straight on.No calls, no jokes on special days.
Every 30th, I sit to go over when Sam called and informed me dad was gone. He was a man of little words aside from when he was angry . Daddy, never spent time on little banters and all he ever said when you took a complaint or quarrel to him was “ pls, let’s peace reign”.
The goodwill calls might not come thru anymore, the jokes might never be heard anymore but, his memories will forever linger. Happy New Year daddy, keep resting on until we meet to part no more and keep watching over us that the peace you always preached will reign in our lives and homes.

How I long for dads call this very 1st day of the year.
Dad favorite words were' I spoke to you a year ago'
I miss his lovely sense of humor.
Dad, it's the 1st 'New year' without you.
The Earth's loss is surely Heavens gain.
Continue to dine with the Angels dear Fred.
Continue to rest in the Lord's bosom.
Happy New Year Dad.

Dear Dad, this is the 1st Christmas without you. How I miss your early Christmas day 'hello'.

Time they say heals all wounds but this is one scar that....

Rest on dearest dad, keep resting in the Lord.

Merry Christmas.

No one was better at telling jokes, you always had a way of warming up the environment and I loved being around you.

I know you’re in a better place and you will forever remain in our hearts.

Life indeed is short, but memories linger forever. Daddy, memories of you are so fresh in my heart. I still hear your voice, in your usual way saying Imelda, how are we?? - that name that only you calls me and its become special. Its hard to accept that you have gone to be with the Lord, however, we are consoled that you are in a better place. Daddy you will be sorely missed, you were always welcoming and accommodating, thank you for the times we shared. Those memories will live forever in my heart. Adieu, continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord.

Words cannot adequately express how deeply saddened I am by your passing grandpa. I am devastated that I will no longer see you here on earth. I will surely miss your wisdom and encouragement, and I will forever be grateful for the memories I was able to make with you. I will never forget you grandpa and I promise to hold you in my heart till the day we meet again.
Rest in perfect peace grandpa.

Your memories are a special gift that I will always treasure. The pain will never really be gone from my heart, but I will always love you and remember you every day. Life will never be the same now that you’re gone, but I will honor your memory in the best way possible. Rest easy Grandad

  A beautiful memory, deare than gold of a father whose simply and funny way of life can never be compare with.

I was eight years of age when I left my parent to stay with you, you accepted me into your home as your last born, you treated everyone equally not minding who they are, Growing up with you was the biggest fun I ever had, which memory can never be earsed, how you made us laughed to the ground even when you decern to be mean it still very funny because of the way you present them with funny words.

You fought well but we were not ready to lose you, however, it will be selfish of us to keep you here as I strongly believe that you stayed this long because of your loved ones...

I know you are in a better place watching over us as you always did..

Daddy you are a hero and am so proud of you, my prayer is that anywhere your seed drops, they shall bring forth good fruits that your Name will forever ring a bell in Jesus Name Amen.

We love you but God loves you more, may your soul and all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in perfect peace Amen.

"Dust we are, dust we shall return" is a popular saying said and heard on Ash Wednesday's and at funerals. The meaning and impact though known, never dawned on me until the day I got the dreaded call. Daddy, your legacy lives on. If I can be half as sincere and genuine as you are, It will be an accomplishment. I try to emulate your steps but, fail sometimes. As a human, you were not perfect none the less, I can't find anyone to top your sincerity chart. Writing all these tributes, just shows how much you mean to us individually. Your demise is irreplaceable but your legacy of unbeatable charts lives on in my soul. Adieu father. Your last sentences for each time you called were "Do have a beautiful day" So I say, do have a beautiful day and life above daddy. Forever in my heart.

Tribute to a Great Man.


Dear dad,

Words fail me here .

Using the 'late' for you is what I wished I didn't have to do but hard as it may seem, I have to accept the reality of situations.

You were an epitome of honesty. You lived for this and died for same. Your type was rare.

You denied yourself pleasures to ensure I had the best. I shall strive to always make you proud dad.

I can go on and on but this wouldn't bring you back.

I can only live with your memories and legacies.

"To live in the hearts of those you love is not to die".

You may be gone in the physical but you will always live in me.

Thank you for being my father and best friend.

If I had a second chance I will still be your son.

I know you are looking down on me(us) from heaven.

Rest in peace dad. Rest in eternal peace

My dear Caroline,
So sad to hear about the demised of your beloved soft spoken and kind father. Indeed, I am a beneficiary of your father's benevolence.
Your dad famously called "Major Achi", indeed was a true major not only in the army but in the Church and the society. He was a man always at duty post as a husband , father, grandfather, uncle, gallant Knight of the Catholic Church and indefatigable philanthropist. He speaks and act accordingly. He flows constantly with peace, forgiveness, love and compassion.
He will forever be remembered. His legacies are eternal. We truly missed him.
May he rest in perfect peace after his unbeatable good works.
Adieu Adah Adah. Rest in perfect peace.
Fr Mark Binang

It is with a heavy heart that I write this , we have all lost someone who played a number of different roles in our lives ; a father , a husband , a grandfather and always a figure of care and support . Although we haven’t spent much time together in recent years , the conversations that we did have now become even more significant . Rest easy grandad

“Look after the children”. Those were your last words to me. I sure will. Few words you were always known for. Rest on Major. Forever in our hearts.

My deep condolences on your Dad’s passing, I think Caro nailed it.. Major was one of the most Honest gentleman. Disciplined and extremely neat. I remember a trip he had just returned from in his early years, and he insisted on washing all his clothes including his suitcase..Who does that, it takes a man of Character, of which Daddy freely displayed through his lifetime.
As we bid you farewell, we have the assurance that you are resting with the Lord in Peace.
Rest on Daddy Major……

I really don’t know where to begin. Sometimes, I smile other times, I find myself crying. I am a roller coaster of emotions. I remember ur best words “my good frnd”- that’s what U referred to all you met as. Ur best insulting word was “U’re an idiot” . You lived a gd life and was an open book of sincerity & trust. You never could cheat anyone and this I so admire the most.
Daddy, I can go on & on. I encouraged U to get well so, u cud attend my adult education graduation like I call it and U wud laugh, little did I know it wasn’t meant to be. I believe U are watching over each and everyone of us. Rest on in the Lord daddy and pave the way for us left behind ♥️.

I am sure you are in a better place- free from all pains and worries. Rip daddy will miss you.

Life is such a strange setup…knowing our time is limited.
Daddy the thought of knowing your not here with us anymore is so difficult to handle.
Thanks for been such an honest and upright man in this crazy world.
Dad I can confirm it would not be easy for me to get over this.
My only consolation is you are free from pain and worries.


Rest easy papa

It is so hard to accept the fact that you are mo more with us Dad  it is still like a dream to me but what can we do but to accept the will of God kmowing that you are in a far better place than we are.

You will surely be missed dad, no one to call and tease me, no one to pray for me and wish me well.

Till we meet to part no more, continue to rest in the bossom of our Lord and savuor. Jesus Christ.

Love and miss you dad.

I am saddened to hear of your father's passing. He was loved and respected by everyone who met him. I hope you can find peace in the wonderful life he has lived. May he rest in peace.
Posted by Ken Achi on July 8, 2021
Dad, I am bereft of words to describe this void you have left. No one lives forever I know ,but am not yet prepared to take up this responsibility you have left me.

You may not have been perfect,but I wouldn't trade you for any other dad.

You were too honest to a fault .I guess you came before time.

I am sure you are in a better place- free from all pains and worries.

Help me to fill the gap you have created.

Rest in peace dad, rest in eternal peace

Kennedy
