Five years ago, I lost a friend also an uncle Dr Orikaye Brown-West. The hate, pains, love, promises, gifts, dreams and how to catch up are all gone, as you always say, time will heal, yes time is healing us. No more pain. Thank God you saw some of your grandchildren.....you would have been 71 years now, while you elder sister would have been 81 year by now......Rest in peace guys, You know I loved you.

Still remember, as you pass on to be with the Lord on a Sunday morning 5 years ago. It is so refreshing as if it is today. On that Sunday morning, while others are preparing to fellowship with the Lord, you left mother earth to fellowship with the Lord Jesus. We will continue to remember you. Tamuno dein

5 years gone by already and yet it still feels like yesterday. We remember you always and miss you everyday. So much has happened that we wish you were here for. But we take solace in believing that you are looking down on us with pride. Gone too soon indeed.

You touch much life, without been loud about it; You did establish yourself in your little way; You show and share, compassion, love, and caring; Is part of the reason, you are cherished; Hence, the gap no one can fill. You will always be remembered on days like this. We still miss and remember you on your birthday. Rest in the Lord Jesus.

Opu Bro, your demise was sore. The very fabric of Igolima house it tore hopes diminished into memories for the first time in Lagos, i saw you disembark from dad's dug-out canoe for the last time in Bonny, with promise that you will back, but sadly that promises will not be kept, God willing never slack if I could turn back the hands of time.

Brother Oriks, When I saw you on the 2nd of January 2012 at PH airport, we had a short conversation and you told me all wasn’t well. When I left you to board my flight I said to you “bye, journey mercy” I never knew it was a farewell. Although I saw your condition, your death came too sudden. I will greatly miss you. The Kalabari community has lost a great son. May your soul rest in peace
