Of all the things I remember about him the thing that stands out was his smell. He had this scent that made you feel ........safe I guess. It was a nice scent, can't really describe it but I'll never forget it.
Thanks for inviting me into your home sir!

I can still remember how he'll hail me when I usually came back from school, and he'll ask how my day was as if he were dad. I miss hearing his voice, I miss stepping out of my house and seeing him sitted my the rail talking cheerfully.
There were times hearing him laugh was annoying cause I'd hear it all the way from my house lol. But right now I'll give anything to hear him laugh again.
I still remember when I started boarding house and he was yabbing me, telling me not to come home thinner that I already was.
That morning I heard the news was like any other day. I was still having breakfast when one of the security men in school came to tell me my mum was looking for me. The moment I saw her face I knew something was up. And then she broke the news. I tried imagining going back to my street to not meet him sitted outside. And that was how I lost my appetite for a week.
There are too many words to be said, but I choose to believe he's in a better place.
Adieu sir, I miss you greatly. You've really left a vacancy in our hearts.
My heart felt condolences to his family. God will definitely keep you guys strong and give y'all the strength to go on.
I love you guys so much.

I wish you saw me graduate from navy I wish you saw me get admission into UNN I wish you saw how much I improved in drawing not all that rubbish you saw from when I was like 4-16 years old
I just really really wish I could turn back the hands of time BUT I guess we’re stuck with this reality

I REMEMBER...

I remember one new year's eve we all returned from mass...and while everyone were celebrating....lo a Child screamed out on the road, we all wondered what happened? And suddenly the child's dad slapped the lil child and you said, “Please take it easy on the Child maybe she's tired and needs to be carried".
The Dad hit her again and when you said, “Oga take it easy on the child please...the man responded, “She's my Child and I can do as pleased...and you also responded back, “if you Hit that Child again, I'd Prove to You that she's not just your Child, but Ours too”...and indeed that was the end of the Matter. The man behaved!!!

You were a Father and a Friend...a man whose voice would cheer anyone up any time.

The Last time I saw you, I was in a taxi and you drove passed Bez Pharmaceutical and I just said “oh Uncle steiner” and I Smiled!

Two weeks after I heard something else.

It is WELL...GOD who Rules in the Affairs of His People knows what's BEST for Us all.

You'll greatly be Missed by All.

I Miss You, I miss your Smiles, I miss your Voice especially when you call “My LuLu how are you?” i'll Miss your Fatherly Hugs with the warm assuring Patting on my back.

You were that friend I never got closed to as Ought to!
Well, All is Well that ENDS WELL... I know you are Smiling wherever You are.

May the Almighty God grant the family the Strength to bear this great loss @ such a Time As This...May God Comfort them on every Side and fill all the Emptiness in their Lives in Jesus Name, Amen.

Rest On Dear Uncle Steiner....

LuLu.
