It is so shocking and sad that you are gone. You were so full of life, jovial and fun. We will miss you. As painful as it is, we know that you are in a better place resting in the bosom of the Lord.

Dear Wilfred Igho Offeh my dear late friend and brother. I fondly called you Osikpe! Osikpereren, kokobioko! You called me Aletor men! In a matching fondness. I recall our early days at Uromi when we struggled so much to survive as teachers. Can't forget our own version of black soup prepared with only bitter leaf. Taking a bike was luxury as we did most of our outings on foot. We took a bold decision to leave Uromi to further our studies in Benin, I went for an MBA while you studied Engineering. We were always together sharing my one room boys quarter and having a lot of fun in the process. We later met in Port Harcourt when I got transferred there by my office. So many interesting times together and then God provided you with a good job. We have remained friends ever since. It was not any wonder when you moved your family to Lagos after I did. Yes, exigencies of work and family lives may not have allowed us to continue to spend as much time together but we had our occasional hearty calls, messages and visits. The message of your passing came as rude shock that morning when your wife called to inform me. My family and I are still yet to wrap our minds around this reality. You were always so positive, hard working, jovial and trusting. The worries of this world are clearly no longer yours but ours who are alive to mourn your demise. I ask God to look at your heart and grant you the mercies you need to spend your eternity with him in heaven. We give God thanks for the gift of your life and the privilege of your friendship. Rest in Peace Osikpe. I pray we meet again in heaven.

Ofie! And Ores! Were the names I and my elder sister (oreva) were fondly called by our Late Uncle Wilfred Offeh. As a child, I particularly looked forward to Wilfred's visits. He would promise to get me a second gift, even when he had no money to fulfill the first promise. But he got me my first jean trouser and a trainers for xmas. The second promise was a BMX bicycle, I wish I knew how much a teacher at Uromi earned.

My Late Uncle was adventurous, hardworking, a risk taker, a hustler, and die hard optimist. He had ventured into businesses that almost swallowed him, but he never stopped believing in business. Late Wilfred Offeh was a enthusiast and an extrovert. He made friends on impulse and infused loads of positive energy in them, so that they become full of hope for a better life.

Many know Late Wilfred Offeh as a great teacher. I am the scientist he birthed from the family. I will never forget the support and encouragement he provided to ensure I passed my WAEC on first attempt. And I will not foregt the extra physics and mathematics lessons he organized for free to support the WAEC candidates of Iyede grammar school, which he made sure I attended. From Uromi to Iyede Grammar schools, Wilfred imparted lives of pupils and colleagues and made friends of a lifetime.

I cannot forget that he showed up for my wedding ceremony. Unexpected! Yes! He completed the joy of my father, his elder and only brother. Even though we missed him for his brother's 80th birthday, we were hopeful he would celebrate with the family again. Oh! How sad it is that his brother would lay him to rest at 83, just three years later.

I will surely miss the voice that calls me Ofie! My dear Uncle Wilfred. Please help me wish the soul of Willie, Yankee, Osikpe, Wilfred Offeh a peaceful journey home.

It is with a heavy heart that i write this tribute,Uncle Osikpe,words fail me,when we got that dreadful call on that day ,we thought it was going to be the normal call of checking up and what have you only to be jolted out of our wits with that terrible news.

You were such a free minded ,jovial and caring friend that i had come to know through my husband and the relationship had lasted for it seemed like eternity, all my children knew your name and would laugh so much with you anytime you came around,Your death still does not look real even in the face of its reality,at this time the only thing we can do now is to keep praying for the repose of your soul as a Catholic that i am so that your soul can gain entrance into God's kingdom,Continue to rest In The bosom of The Lord.

We will miss you so so much,infact you were a friend that was more than a brother,Continue to rest Uncle Osikpe.
