When I heard the news of your passing, it felt like my whole world shattered. I wished for it to be a very bad dream that I would wake up from but I never did. I prayed, I cried, I begged for a miracle but to no avail. I didn’t want to but at a point, I was a little angry at God. Why would he take my uncle away from us at such a young age? I just could not understand why.
I finally got clarity when I listened to a sermon, it was about long life. It said long life isn’t about living for 80 or 100 years. It’s about fulfilling the purpose why you were created, that hit me hard. I was wondering why God let him die so soon and I got my answer. He didn’t die soon, he finished his own part so he has gone to rest with the Lord. And even though it hurts, let us be consoled with the fact that he’s in a better place.
Uncle, I’m really going to miss you a whole lot. You’ve been with me from the start till the day you took your last breath and I will never forget that. I’m gonna do my best to make you proud, that’s my last promise to you. You may not be here with me anymore but you will live on forever in my heart. Goodbye, Uncle, till we meet again.

It would be impossible to recover from the shock of your demise. Right from when I knew you in the late nineties, you were both the senior brother that I never had and a good friend too. Whenever we were in Nigeria, a visit to your place was always part of our itinerary.

An untimely death of a dear friend is not possible to forget. A lifelong friendship was expected but death took away your life. It’s a loss that’s so hard to bear, nothing makes it easier, knowing that you’re no longer here…. Still, memories of the best moments will always linger in our mind.

You gave no one a last farewell, nor ever said good-bye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why. It broke our hearts to lose you. We live with the hope that we will meet again someday, in a better place.

For all that you were, and for all that you did, you remain very special indeed. We are grateful for the times we had together. We’ll cherish our memories of you forever.

May your soul rest in peace.

Adieu, our dear friend.

“Uwem again” as you always fondly called me whenever I called you, “big bro!”.
You sure added value to my life with your wise and encouraging words.
I was like a younger brother and you showed my family and I love whenever you visited.
I miss our great conversations big bro! Rest in Victory!!

Indeed you were a rare gem, your kind is a rare find. Your sudden departure left a gaping vacuum in the hearts of loved ones.
However sir, the legacy you left behind will be treasured forever.
Sleep in Peace.

We lost a rare gem- an exceptional husband and father, a kind inlaw and a role model. You always related with us as a father and it was a pleasure to tap from your wealth of wisdom. It is our prayer that God will grant your soul eternal repose and comfort the family you left behind. Keep resting Sir

You're gone too soon, in law. We thank God for the life you lived while here on earth. You were loved by all and you loved our family dearly. You will be sorely missed. Rest well in the bosom of our dear Lord. Adieu in law!

I still can’t believe you are gone, you left without saying goodbye. The special memories of you will always bring a smile. I wish I could bring you back for just a little while so we could sit and talk as we use to do. A million times I will miss you and in my heart you hold a place no one else can fill. It broke my heart to lose you and I know you are in a special place resting from sorrows and tears. I thank God He made you my brother while you were on earth and will forever be grateful for the times we spent together.

Rest in peace my dear brother!

Samuel Manam
