Daddy you are a great man ( I didn’t say was cause he still is a great man ) everyone who came across you felt your love, kindness, humility and generosity. Your love was beyond reason you loved both the good the bad and the ugly, you forgive without remembering, you settled disputes with calmness, you lead without segregation, pass your judgment without cheating. You thought me that the greatest investment is investing and helping others .You thought me how to take everyone as peers ,be humble and that no matter how rich you are if you don't help people then you haven't achieved anything meaningful. Your wisdom knew no boundaries, all the time I never understood some things you do but I know it was for the best. I remember When I was in secondary school something happened and I got into trouble so they called home and daddy came with papa ( his brother) and some other people ( he was traveling to the village when mommy told him so he just came with them )
I was crying when he came and when he saw me he told me to clean my tears and smile that we don’t cry in public . They didn’t let me into the office they were talking in , so the said he wouldn’t listen to them till I’m present so he would also hear my side so the wouldn’t accuse me falsely or over exaggerate the issue. He always mad judgment after hearing from both sides to it would fair and so he would be able to know who is wrong and right
I miss him so much that words can't explain, even tho Im trying to be strong everyday it breaks my heart that I have lost a great treasure. I remember all the times we went out together both the times I wasn’t ready or didn’t want to, in my mind I was pissed but now I’m just full of regrets cause now I can’t even hear his voice, I can’t hold his hands, massage his leg or do anything for him. I wish I could talk to him one more time, hug him laugh with him, listen to the news with him in his room, do his test
I wish he could be there to see me graduate from school with my medical degree
I wish I could spend more time learning from him, learning how to be great in life, learning how to love the way he did
I wish I could grow and he could be there for me to ask for advice to guide me , so many thing I wish I could have said , so many things I wish I could have done but no matter how much I want and wish for all this I can’t get it because of the evil hands of death but
He’s in a better place
Now he can walk without a stick
Eat all the sweets and sweet food he wants
He is happy
He’s with his friends and fathers, looking down on us with joy in his heart, watching over us at the table God prepared for him in heaven.
He lives in us his family and all who one way or another came in contact with him in the memories he gave me and left behind, in the smiles he put on our faces, the joy he gave to us all.
He lived well and right doing God’s will and services

Today isn’t a day of sorrow or a day to mourn but a day of joy, a celebration of the life of a great man for that let’s all be merry for he is proud of us

One thing I’ll never forget about you is how influential and connected you were but yet still humble your KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY was our greatest gift.

A great man both in life and in death
Your legacy wouldn’t be destroyed nor forgotten

We miss you, daddy, we love you

I KNOW YOU ARE WATCH US AND WE WOULD MAKE YOU PROUD

A great Father figure to all. No dull moment with our daddy. He was always interested in knowing how everything was going with you and above all, he listens. May his gentle soul continue to rest in peace as we'll miss him here on earth.

It will be difficult - almost impossible for me to do this Special Ode to you, if part of my raising was done outside ur watch. You Encouraged me with all for the fulfilment of my 1st Academic Leg. On ur hospital bed at the Riverside Clinics, Portharcourt, you gave me a working appointment to serve as the 1st Marketng Manager of Gims Holdings Limited. I gave my best when i served you and the Conpany in that Capacity - the loudest was when through your beloved wife Mrs Abiliba O. C. Harry i convinced you to Sight the Gims Holdings Limited Bottling Plant at its present location in Obuama. You called me as usual "itubo" (meaning my child in Kalabari) and said to me ur my invaluable assest. I knelt down and you prayed for him asking God to make me Greater than he has made you. I moved on. You received the news of my Employment with the Rivers State House of Assembly with a mixed-feelings. We reconciled our differences - again in 2011 you prayed for me and wished me well when i made moves to change the narratives of Degema LGA through Politics. We had our last meeting in July 2015 when i was preparing for the discourse of my fathers burial. With the cheque you gave in my hands, you prayed again for me. After the Prayers, you asked me to promise you just 2things, "itubo please own up and take good care of Toks(my mum)," itubo, my gates either in Obuama or Portharcourt will ONLY welcome you when you have broken the Limits. I want you to be announced as the next Tein Jackrich or its equivalent in Politics. Tell no one of this but someday we will share this to all. I made this promise to you Daddy and left with my shirts soaked with Owuminji(tears). Your unexpected departure has forced me to open up this secret. Nevertheless someday we will share the part 2 of this secrets to all. I love you - even in death, and forever will miss you. Adieu Daa Adaye Omubo Clinton Tom Big Harry (gbori - tubo ye ende negim - an illustrous son of Obuama, Krakrama all in Kalabari whose worth is far more than a Billion.

Dear Alabo,
You were like a Father to me. But indeed you were a lot more than that to me; you were my Father, Mentor, Brother, Friend, Business Partner and Advisor. I had such great times with you because your love and personality were so infectious and I wanted to spend my 24/7 with you. For me to write a befitting Tribute to you, I will need to write a whole Book. I loved you so dearly and I would do anything for you because you would do anything for me and for everyone. Your generosity knew no bounds and you took care of so many people and their problems. Unbelievable KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY. I never saw you get angry with anyone and I never heard you raise your voice to anyone. Your calm nature was so infectious. . The name you gave me, IBIYE, means so much to me. You said that I brought good things to the World but Sir, You were GOODNESS personified. We miss you so my Father, but I take solace that you are most definitely in the Bossom of our Lord Jesus Christ because you are indeed a Saint. Rest in Perfect Peace Alabo till we meet again .
May Almighty God Comfort everyone that you have left behind, your family and friends who will all miss you so much.
God Bless you Forever and Ever
All my love
Terence "Ibiye" Modebe

Sir, I and my family will miss you. Death cannot fear otherwise a humble, trustworthy and sincere man like you will not experience death. In all we still thank the Lord that you made a good impact in your generation. My condolences to the entire family of Harry and may you rest in the Lord. Adieu sir.

It is with a profound sense of loss and yet gratitude to God whose will in our lives we cannot question that I, on behalf of my family write to condole the entire Harry Family on the demise of our dear father, Late Chief Ombo Clinton Harry who passed on to eternal glory.

The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much money one has or what possessions they have accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched and the sorrow the leave behind. If the outpouring of sympathy on his loss is any indication, and it most certainly is, you can proudly and confidently say that his indeed was a life well-lived.

There is no doubt that Rivers State, especially the Kalabari nation has lost a great and irreplaceable son. May you find peace and comfort in knowing that his loss is felt by all who knew and loved him.

Once more accept my heartfelt sympathy.

My lovely Daddy, your heart was as big as a jumbo jet, you kindness was limitless and had no conditions, when you laugh the whole room reverberated oh so pure and hearty was your laughter. Even though I did not spend a lot of time with you, every moment I was in your presence I became a sponge absorbing the pure wisdom you distilled. You have left a gaping hole in all of our hearts but it is your time to rest now. Blessed are the ones who carry on the baton to continue with your ginormous name and all of the work you have done/doing that impacts many lives. I will never say bye but see you later for I know you are resting in the peace of the Lord until we come to join you.
God bless bless bless the family you leave behind. I pray the Almighty grants them the patience to bear and comprehend your loss. ❤️❤️❤️ You are forever LOVED
