You thought us to work towards fulfilling our life's purpose to our best interest ...Like what Pike Albert said " What we have done for ourselves dies with us, but what we have done for others and the word remains and is immortal " ... This sums the exemplary life and legacy footprints you left behind for us to fill ... Thank you, Dad !

Dear Dad, I missed you terribly. Words are not enough to express how much you touched my life, our lives and the vacuum your passing away created. It was an extremely devastating event to experience. Sharing life moments of you with friends and family did not heal the heart but provided some solace. In remembrance, I continue to pray and ask the good Lord to continue to grant your generous and compassionate Soul Eternal Rest!!!

Daddy, I miss you more than words can say. Thank you for teaching me to be selfless. Your legacy lives on. Rest well, sweet Daddy. Love, effy.
Posted by Ina Obasi on 15th September 2015
Dear Dad, Four years seems like yesterday. Very unbelievable and yet flashes of the day going through my face. Your Legacy and Light will keep shinning in the mist of difficulties, challenges, worldly ignorance and misunderstandings. I will always keep my eye on the Ball and never let any of them to drop. I see clearer each day, and cannot imagine what you had gone through in your 83 years on this Earth, doing selfless things that you knew human being could not appreciate but God. It is Well with your Soul as you keep sleeping in His Bossom. Rest Well Papa, Rest Well and let the Peace of God be with you always. Love Dad.

I still told someone a few days back what a wonderful selfless father- inlaw I had. I couldn't have wished for someone else as my father inlaw. Part of the best gifts he gave me was his acceptance for me to marry his wonderful daughter. Continue to rest in the bossom of the lord. We will do all by the grace of God to continue to make you proud of us. You are always remebered for all you have done!

Dear Chief, It has been one year since you left and what I have learned since your passing is that there is nothing on earth more important than keeping peace and love with your family. You always tried to teach us that and now I am trying to pass it to your grand daughter Tanina Kalaria ObasI. May you rest in peace!

Abiriba has lost a visionary and creative genius; immensely, we have lost an amazing human being, a philanthropist. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know, stay and work with OCHI OHA 1 of Abiriba, have lost a dear friend, brother, uncle, a beloved father and an inspiring mentor. OCHI OHA leaves behind a legacy, that only he could have built, and his spirit of love, kindness, genero

Never met you papa in your lifetime, but from what I heard from those very close to you and reading the several tributes, there is no doubt in my mind that you finished your earthly race with flying colours. Your uncommon achievements while on earth have earned you a deservedly heavenly crowns. My prayer is that those you left behind will forever keep your legacy.

You were not just a great man But also a good man of the highest order! When a great man passes on, he is talked about. But when a good man goes home, he is missed. Today, you are being talked about; but most importantly, you are, and will indeed, be missed not just by your family But by the whole community of Ebiriba and beyond! RIP Papa-Nta!

Daddy Uba Ekeagbara Obasi: An Orthopraxist/A Theology without Footnotes Orthopraxis means right belief with right practice while theology without footnotes represents an embodied reflection on God and practice of godliness that does not require footnotes or end notes to explain. Daddy these descriptions summarize your life. I MISS YOU!

Dear Grandpa, Thank you for all the lessons you instilled in me, thank you for all the precious moments you shared with me, my heart is sore and my soul is weeping but I know you are in a better place now. I will surely miss all the laughs and smiles we've shared and its because of you that I am the responsible and dedicated young woman I am today.

Who could have remembered a dejected, dehumanised widow but you. you picked me up when all seemed to have slipped through my hands. Besides supporting me and my family ever since, you provided the necessary assistance for my son in securing admission abroad.
