"Then shall the young women rejoice in the dance,
and the young men and the old shall be merry.
I will turn their mourning into joy;
I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow.

"Papa  you breathed your last and died at a good old age ,an old man full of years. What a life well spent, full of battles, battles to maintain and preserve justice and honesty both in the family and church. Papa you worked but others ate but you refused to be carried away by the riches of this world or its pleasures, because you understood the world’s riches and pleasure are but vanity upon vanity. Papa you have been a blessing to us because God continues to bless you and mama to be blessings to us. Papa you have been a blessing to me. I remember the wooden toy cars you used to sent to me as a child, the gari I used to stop to eat while coming back from primary school , the serious and informative jokes you always speak to your children and other visitors these made us laugh and adjust.
Papa, you have now gone, gone to be with the lord. We all loved you but God loved you more and better and knows when you have rest from all your labours. Daddy may your soul rest in perfect peace. We shall meet again at the Master’s feet at the resurrection. Mama Papa has gone, but God has taken his place to the Husband to the widow and Father to the fatherless He will never leave or forsake you and us, He never sleeps or slumber He is our Rock and dwelling place.  
Nguhmbi Henry Afaaseh-Son"

"It was a shocking message of your passing that brought tears to my eyes.  You made me remember the very first time that I visited you in Awing. We talked and laughed like father and daughter should, we took pictures, and above all you blessed me and my family. On that dreadful day that God decided it was your time, your time to come home, you went open handed with a smile on your face saying:  “Here I am Lord; it is me Lord, take me and use me just as You see fit”. You shall be missed Papa, but we understand you were tired and needed the rest. Rest in perfect peace Papa until we meet again."

""We did everything medically and humanly possible to keep you alive Pa! But Jesus didn't say, John will not die, people thought He said, John will stay alive all his life, rather He said if he (John) was to stay alive all his life, what will that mean to you? Like the others I was wrong, because I did not understand him". You shall forever remain fresh in our memories, We Love You Pa and We Miss You.
Son ( Emmanuel)
"I remember when you used to say 'Bomegeb kee deh chi? Geb kee deh chi? Le keh?' ( Are they no eggs in the house? Are they no fowls in the house? What is this?). Pa we would have loved to keep you forever, but Jesus did not even say John would stay alive all his life but rather He said if I want him to stay until I come, what will that mean to you? We Love You Pa and We Miss You.

"It is a sad news that pa John is gone forever. We will never see him again. No amount of ground will fill the vacuum created. We love him more but God loves him most. No amount of tears will bring papa John back. Pa is ripe enough to sleep in the LORD. Ma Julie, brothers and sisters, take heart.
   Accept our heart-felt condolences
