Most everyday I think of Shawcross, his infectious laugh and what a great friend he was too me I am so happy he was able to spend time with me in home shortly before his departure. I did enjoy my travels with him to Ghana, and other places. He is so very much missed.

Yes Chief, the memory of our long business conversations ending with the feeling that at the other side of the line it was always a friend and not merely a business partner that was talking to us is greatly missed. You were coming or I was going, it was always like that, and it will remain as such. Forever in our hearts.

Shawcross Gee (Akaose),
I join the many to say 'gaa nkeoma, Chukwu dubegi'.
It was not long after we caught up over the phone, and we were to meet, only for the sad news to hit to me, under two months of that phone conversation. 'sochukwuma'. Rest in Peace.

A great tree has fallen and I couldn't say why so early. Nwachinemere can only be remembered with his smile and charisma; always kept his cool and carried himself with pride,yet with much humility. Life, they say is full of misteries and who are we to ask God "why". Nwachinemere, may your gentle soul, rest in perfect peace.

Another shocking blow but God knows best.Take heart dear Eve and children.Your husband and father was a role model and a star among his peers. Death can never dim the legacy of kindness and sharing he left.

My Dear Neigbhour,

It was just a few weeks ago we were chatting from your balcony and making plans about spending some time together. I miss you and fondly remember the precious time and banter we shared. You were always full of life and joy and I'm very blessed to have known you.

My dearest Uncle, I never imagined that when I said goodbye to you during Thanksgiving weekend this past November, it would be for the last time. I am grateful to God that I and my family got that one last opportunity to spend time with you. It is truly a tragedy that I will never again see you in this life, but I can smile knowing that one day I will see you in the next. Rest in perfect peace.

I love you and I pray that your soul rests in perfect peace. - Nneka Kanu

To My Dearest Uncle Shawcross

Shared by Erica Obioha on January 27, 2011

Well Uncle Shawcross,

It’s time I write my tribute to you. I have to say I was so honored when asked to write one to you. I wanted it to be the most beautiful, inspirational, and most elegant tribute that you read from me, but its so hard for me to do so with so so much sorrow upon my heart and unanswered questions.  So I waited until now until I had some peace about what happened.  It’s so ironic that today of all days one day before your birthday I was awakened to find myself coming to tears and I knew they were tears of sorrow for you.  I started to think of our last conversation and all of a sudden I had this feeling of peace come over me and I knew it was you keeping your promise, so then my tears turned to tears of joy and I knew Joy Comes in the Morning I could write my tribute now.

When I think of you uncle so many words come to mind but the one that sticks out the most is THANK YOU.  So Uncle Shawcross I personally want to say THANK YOU  for being a great father , it shows through your children and I’m  glad I have the chance to see it first hand through your baby girl Angelica. Uncle she is doing so well here, THANK YOU for bringing my baby back lol I missed her so much.  THANK YOU for being a great husband, THANK YOU FOR BEING A GREAT UNCLE, THANK YOU for your unselfish ways, THANK YOU for being a great example for the family, and I THANK GOD I GOT TO KNOW YOUR PRESENCE in my life.

Our last conversation you promised me you would take it easy and get some rest, and I knew that would be hard for you since you were always on the go and loved to travel.  I know now God had a master plan, we always feel that the good people are taken from us to soon. I believe God has a plan and of course he does things on his own time not on ours, so I get comfort in knowing this was God plan because he knew you were getting tired even if we didn’t know. This poem came to mind so I wanted to share it with everyone.

God Saw You Getting Tired

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be

So he put his arms around you and whispered,

“Come and go with Me.”

With tearful eyes we watched you slowly fade away. Although we

Loved you dearly, we would not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating….Hard working hands were laid to


God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best.

I love you soo much Dearest Uncle my Daddy Warbucks ;) and I know you are in heaven looking down on us…. I must tell you I will keep my promise even though I could not take care of you like we talked about but I promise I will take great care of our lil baby girl Angelica so you don’t have to worry.

With all my Love,

Erica Chinyere Obioha.


A Message to my Lovely Aunt Evelyn and Dearest cousins;

I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.

John 11: 25-26

Also remember from the dust raises the almighty Phoenix, one of the most beautiful and powerful birds. So everything will be ok once the dust settles.

Love you guys,



To Beloved Bro. SG.

Spam (1)Spam (1)[Spam (1)[
Destiny has a way it unfolds. In the early '70's as a very young lad in our then prestigious Ihemgram. He left as he came with a noble character of associating with those two or three classes above him. This attitude he carried all through his life here on earth, hence keeping him ahead above his peers.

In two days time we will be burying this gaint of a man, who ordinarily will be mounting the podium to exhibit his charming charisma. "The only man whose cock lays the golden eggs"

Death--------------- WHY NOW???

For those who do not know this my bro, browse through the gallery and see his dressing in the '70's  and compare that with what yours was then. Is it his smile which improved over the years... Now you can begin to imagine what a great JEWEL we lost...

Death---------------BUT WHY???

Its extremely very painful for me writing a tribute for SG. However destiny has made its way. It is hard to come to gribs that SG is gone. Where is the charming smile now? I still picture him dancing on the streets near Warri, Delta State welcoming I and the others the day we went to his inlaws.


Chimaobi, I thank God Almighty that I can comfortably say that you know SG. Keep to his doctrines, if you are confused, ask questions. Always look up, you will see your comforter.... {Remember Joshua 1:8-9}....

A dime of a man

Shared by Bube Ike on January 27, 2011

   I did not believe it when I heard of your death. It came as poison to my ears & I refused to accept that a dime like you had been taken from us.

   As time passed, i began to realize what this meant. I wouldn't get to see you anymore; the way you carried yourself was an inspiration to us all.

    Well, what can i say, we may have lost you now but not forever because you have just walked into the next room and i know we shall all meet again.

    This is goodbye just for now.
