I thank God for everything Daddy, for giving me a father like you. I am also very grateful for all you did for us while you were with us. On this day I don't feel sad, I just miss you more, I could still use some of that wisdom of yours but I also know that God would not have let you leave us if He did not think we were going to be okay. We are okay Dad, we are okay !
I love you deeply always, till we meet again Daddy.

Keep resting !

Life, unfortunately, means there has to be death. It is inevitable, and as much as we hate losing those special people from our lives we have to come to terms with it. But we can find comfort and support in our heavenly Father.
Thank God for the life of our late brother, Eteakamba. You came, you saw and you conquered. May the good Lord continue to grant your soul eternal rest in His bosom. Amen.

5 years down... A part of our hearts has turned to an angel's wing... Words can never be enough, but one thing I'm certain about is that you're happier up there, still raining smiles on those of us you left behind... Rest in Power, the black stallion! We'll always love you

5 yearsssss !!!!! How has it been 5 years since you left?? I..... I don’t know how I have done it without you ! I’ll be finished from uni soon, (UNN) soo stressful but you would probably tell me to “be a man” lol please come and tell me something! Anything ! I... I just could really use your advice right now. I miss you so much and I can’t even tell you properly. I wish you could see bubba (Cyrus) he’s perfect. He reminds us of you sometimes and I really am so sad to know you’ll never meet him. I have a girlfriend now, Victoria Ekanem(vee). She’s the most fantastic girl in the world and I can imagine how much you would have loved getting to know her. I can only imagine the advice that you would give me concerning girlfriend issues. You were always kind of smart that way and just always knew what to say. Things are really not the same since you left us and I made a promise to make you proud, I haven’t forgotten, I’d like to think I am fulfilling it. I just wish you could see me now !
I’ve met prof. Woke Soyinka and presented art to him, I’ve worked with UNICEF. You would be so proud of me and I would kill literally !!!! To hear you say “dah Ikpa, you did good” with your one of a kind voice I just hope I have the strength to keep keeping on without you Daddy, well here’s 5 years my heart will never forget anything about you STAINER. The best father in the world. 
I love you and miss you abundantly
Your pension pikin as you would call me lol

I never got the chance to meet you, but my mom told me about you and how much of a good person you were. RIP Pops

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.

Ediye cousin mi...never to be forgotten. You were special in many ways and you loved in your special way.  Never looking for anyone's trouble.   Growing up together,  we had something specially connecting us,  and serving together in Jos, we looked out for each other.  The journey of life can be so overwhelming.  But we plow on seeking the Lords direction as we journey back to meet our Lord in eternity.  We thank God,  that you enriched so many lives with laughter and joy.  Rest in the Lord.  We love you.
