Obim as you represented to me, it is difficult for me to find words to capture what you meant to me, our children and our family.
It is unimaginable to describe the full weight of vacuum your death has brought to me, our children, our relations and our family friends. To me, it is still like a bad dream.
Obim, on that faithful day, it was like a lightening across my eye. I could not comprehend what happened; you left without looking back. I know it was not your wish, but death overpowered you.
Obim, you were a kindhearted man, very bold, brainy, strong minded but very compassionate and loving, handsome inside and outside; loved by all, highly intelligent with impeccable integrity of character.
You encouraged me in every form of life; you could read my mind that I would sometimes wonder if my mind is replicated in yours.
Obim, whom will I lean on his shoulder? Who will call me Nwanyioma, Obi Di Ya again?
My Love, we may not feel your physical presence anymore, but you will forever live in our hearts. You will also be missed by all those that had the opportunity to meet you in your lifetime.
Surely you are in the bosom of the Lord, your Divine resting place.
Good night my love, my pride, my gold, my hero. Nwoke Oma Laa Na Udo.
