Dearest Uncle Sly, I don't even know what to write because I should not be writing this now. Too young to go, still a whole heap of life, joy and laughter ahead of you. So sorry to you and your family when my mum told me the sad news but I will keep the happy memories and thank you for being there when you could for this young teenager at the time who had nobody or nowhere to turn to in Hackney over 20 years ago when I was dealing with circumstances beyond my control, thanks for the advise and just been there for me. Rest in power forever.

Demi

On behalf of my wife Ruth and our entire family we have missed a friend, a brother but you will remain firmly embedded in our lives. Your memories, the last time we were together in November 2020 and drove to your place. The laughter and jokes we shared. You always have something nice to say about people and you respected everyone you met. Sly you were a true genius in making people feel they matter and that they are the most important in your life. Even in the sick bed you kept in touch, making everyone know that you would be back. It was a big surprise to learn from Sarah and Joshua that things changed for the worse. We expected you to pull through as you always showed the fighting spirit. Now we know that you have gone ahead of us. Our prayer for Joshua and the rest of the family to be safe and grown up as a legacy for your memory. God bless the family and keep your loved ones. Ruth and Baba Inusa

Dearest Uncle Sly, I write you this tribute to thank you for the memories and always looking out for my family and my momma.
I pray the good lord gives your family the strength not to mourn but to celebrate the life you lived as a Son, Brother, Friend, Uncle, Husband, Father & Grandfather.
Your legacy will continue to live on through Christ that strengthens us all.
Rest easy Uncle, Love always ❤️

Hey!!, ‘Ajai’ as we fondly call each other. I don’t even know where and how to begin that I Elizabeth Ifeanyi Iwediuno nee Egbuniwe your youngest sister is sitting down to write on a tribute page created for you in the year 2021. I am filled with a mixture of emotions that I cannot explain. So many questions of Why! Why! And how did this happen? What did we miss?

The shock of hearing from the hospital that you are unlikely to make it through the night of the 3rd February 2021 was like a bad dream hoping to wake up seeing your ever smiling face but it was not to be. I was devastated emotionally and physically and I wanted some answers from God - I wanted him to explain to me why he had taken you away from us so suddenly. But who am I, to question God, who blessed our family with such a joyful, youthful, loving, caring, generous brother like yourself. Always full of life. We are so grateful to God for blessing us with the years we spent together as a family with so many good positive memories. You were a shinning star on earth, lightening up any room. Never a dull moment with you around.

As they say time is a healer - I pray to God that he will give me the strength and understanding to cope knowing that you are no more.

I pray for God’s understanding in accepting your beautiful spirit into his house. I pray that your soul is now resting in the bosom of the Lord.

We your family, your cousins and friends are all grieving at losing you so soon, but we are all consoled knowing that you did not suffer much and you are in a much better place.

My darling brother - Ebolum kan-nor (Sly) Rest in Perfect Peace!

Liz (aka Ajai') Your baby sister

I sit around and wonder
and watch the days go by.
I look at all the pictures
and ask, why did you have to die?A friend taken from life too soon is nothing but tragedy. Your death affects everyone who knew and loved you. We will honor your legacy and remember you always.GOOD NIGHT UNCLE SLY

My dear friend, Uncle Sly. It is still tough for me to process your very unfortunate demise. It is always sad when the good die young. You were of a kind heart and a generous spirit; and this side of life is poorer and gloomier without you. I take solace from the fact that you’ve gone to a Better Place and your beautiful memory will continue to radiate in our hearts. God bless and rest your soul as you take your place in the bosom of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. Amen

Rest in peace dear. Met you once with my very good friend’s husband.
I pray our good Lord accept your soul and give your family the fortitude to bear this loss.

Life is like a candle in the wind. Life is so short.
Very shocking to hear this sad news of Mr Sylverster. He was such a sociable nice man I met once in a party in 2019 and he was very friendly.
Rejoice in the Lord and sleep well Mr Sylverster.

Dear Uncle Sly,

The news of your demise came to me as a rude shock. I loved & respected you like a brother/father and I am deeply saddened. I don’t remember the last time I cried this much. You have left some wonderful memories that will never fade from my heart. My joy is that God gained an angel with a beautiful soul. May your soul continue to rest in perfect peace Amen
Posted by Adebowale Showunmi on February 15, 2021
I sit around and wonder and watch the days go by. I look at all the pictures and ask why did you have to die? I guess God looked around His garden & found a place. He then looked down upon the earth & saw your tired but gentle soul, He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest in your heavenly place. Though we did not say goodbye but you will always be in our heart because precious memories will never die.

However, it gives me comfort that you are enjoying a beautiful garden like dreamland after your demise. Our heart aches but heaven gained an angel which made the star brighter. Goodbye my dear friend and rest in perfect peace Amen.
