This morning am lighting up dozens of candles for these three great and cherished people in my life that have gone to the grave beyond.
One is for my Dearly beloved grand mum, Mrs. Christiana Obilor who passed on February 2002. "DA" as you are always called by everyone, one are more than everything to me. you laid the foundation of life for me and on that very foundation that I have built my life upon till date, on how to be honest to myself and also have respect for others. There are many more good reports to be said about you, I just want to say that I appreciate that have you did you did for me and that I missed you so much.
The second candle is for a family relation Ahamefule. Dear brother news of your tragic death in 1998 broke me down in different ways. infact I have never felt that way my entire life before which made to see life the other way round. You left so soon without even saying goodbye. As am writing this right now am still feeling you close to me. I cant just get you out of my mind. Memories of you still lives forever on my mind, if there is a way to rewind the hand of TIME and bring you back I would have done so just for you. "Amenco", may you gentle soul rest forever in peace in Jesus name.
Lastly, this candle here is for one of my girl friend's Mum, Mrs. Akerele who passed on Good Friday 21st of March 2008. I could not believe the news of your passing away when i first heard about it, I was touched for the second time in my life. Right now am praying that, may your gentle soul rest in perfect peace with our Lord Jesus Christ.
Rest in PEACE also to all other people not mentioned here. ADIEU! sad sad cry cry

I'm lighting this unqencheable candle for my dad, Mr Emmanuel Omale Adunga Enemari, who departed this world on the 9th of January, 2006. He was loving, kind and very playful. I and my siblings will dearly miss him. Adieu dad. We love you, but God loves you more. Continue to rest in His hands untill we meet to part no more.
Re: Ever Lost Someone As Dear As Family? Come Light A Candle For Them Here by Johnny(m): 2:27pm On Mar 25, 2008
I have always wondered why death will always take away the people that are mostly cheerished. I just lighted a candle for my lovely father who died on Jan.,9th 2006. As I was about closing the page, three people whose death will never depart from my mind came to my memory. Uptill now that I'm putting this down, I have not stopped wondering why death will ever think of taking those people let alone snatching them from their loved ones.

-Major Ahmed Ogboji (Rtd); This man was my Uncle, my mum's first counsin. He was a pillar in his immediate and extended family. Despite his tight schedules, this man will always have your audience. He was generous, jovial and very likeable. Then one night, he was driving in Makurdi town, unknown to him that what stood before him as a moving Coca Cola truck was indeed a stationary one; and he ran into it! He never left there alive.

-Aunty Ladi Gabriel; We were neighbours in my village. She stayed in kano, from where she was the pillar in her family. She brought back the hope of the family, built a befitting house for her mum, got jobs for her younger ones and was very generous too. Then in December 2003, this wonderful woman travelled all the way from Kano to spend the Christmas with her family. The journey was successful and the celebration came and went peacefully and joyfully. Then she embarked on a trip to visit her friend in one of the neighboring towns with two of her kids. On their way home, the bus in which they were travelling somersaulted while on high speed. An accident that could not even claim the life of the baby the woman had, claimed Aunty Ladi's life. She died three days after in the hospital. I was devastated. The mum was devastated. Everybody was devastated.

-Rev. Paul Green Obekpa; Rev. Paul was one young man who was doing excellently well in the vinyard of God. In six years, he had built a large church with church memebers numbering above a thousand at Ado, New Karu, Nasarawa state near Abuja. He was a preacher of Holiness, a down to earth young man, blunt but sincere. Then one day, while I was doing my Youth service in Ibadan, my brother who was once a pastor in the church called me that Rev. Obekpa had died. Unbelievable! He was sick, taken to the hospital and gave up to ghost there.

How many candles will I light for these ones! Their death will ever remain in my memory. They died at the time they were mostly needed. Death must be e very wicked monster.
Adieu to you all. May your souls continue to rest in peace.

Re: Ever Lost Someone As Dear As Family? Come Light A Candle For Them Here by Appearance(m): 11:17pm On Apr 25, 2008
The brightest candle to Daddy;

Death snatched you from us when we needed you most in 1992
You left us with deeply embedded principles that has guided us all these years.
Christain, Chinedu and Mum has joined you since then,
We will all see one day, , some day.

A candle for Christian;

You were a lovely younger brother.
Respectful and adorable.
Your death in 1995 shook us all to our bones.
We all thought it was a dream.
But we never woke out of the dream till date,
I love you so immeasurably

Another candle for my big brother; Chinedu;

You passed on to the great beyond on 31st December, 1997 after your NYSC,
Taking lots of shine and vivacity with you.
I use to come to your grave at midnight hoping to see you, , even your ghost,
But gave up when it dawned on me that you are really gone.
I will miss you forever!

One more candle for my darling mother;

Chinedu's death broke your heart.
You were inconsolable and you mourned him for four years.
You loved us all but you couldn't stand the pain of yet another lost.
You died in my arms in the hospital in August 2001.
The pain of your death will eternally remain inexpressible.

To you all that were once an integral part of my life, ,
ADIEU.

this candle is lit for my dad
cry cry cry
   today may 15th makes it a year since you left us. . . .
  it hurts that you had to go bt it hurts most that you
  departed a day to my birthday . . . . . .


    i have come  to learn that. . .

    you will never knw how much you take people for
    granted till dey are gone.


           i regret never telling you how much
        you meant to me before you left
        maybe if you had knwn,you wouldn't ve gone

    . . . . but in all,i have come to realise that
       someday,each one of us must go back to our maker
      but if it were up to me . . . i would never let u go

      my prayer is that . . . .
    you be wit d lord. . .  . 
   and may that same lord cont to guide me
   as he has always done. ,

i miss you dad,
d only thing that keeps me goin
is d word of GOD PSALM 68:5 . . . .HE IS A FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS



MAY YOUR GENTLE SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE
    AMEN!

I light a beautiful candle with an everlasting flame for my dearest mom: Lady Francesca! It still feels so strange that you are no more with us like you used to. But of course, you are very much in a better place than this world of pain and hopelessness. I miss you dearly. God knows we all do and love you still and more. embarassed sad

I also light a candle for my cousin: Wole. It feels painful that you spent such a short time on earth. I wish there was more we could do for you while you were still with us. May your soul rest in God's bossom.

For my aunty that was just buried last week: Mrs Adeite. I reminice on the good old days when everything was fine, your looks and your gentle, loving kindness and i do nothing but smiiiile. May your soul rest in peace too.

I light a candle for aaaaall the rest of my loved ones and family friends who have passed on to eternal glory. May God's eternal light shine upon you all and your souls - through the mercy of God- rest in peace. AMEN!
