Very tragic incident embarassed only God can comfort the remaining children left behind.

Their lives just changed within the twinkle of an eye. Imagine losing mom, dad and son in a day embarassed

As we mourn Herbert wigwe, we should also remember to say a word of prayer to Abimbola ogunbanjo. He's also a family man with lots of dependents.

Man down
Wife down
Children down, all in a snap.

The rate at which aircrafts are crashing in the US lately is alarming.


All the wealth, millions of dollars left behind will now be inherited by family members who contributed nothing to his life.

LIFE!

The same people saying they have no information only a few hours ago. Believe them at your own risk. They had all the information they needed. They just didn't have the one they were ready to share

Very sad indeed..
Not just a tradegy, but a big one

One man's sorrow
Another upcoming CEO'S happiness,
Another lawyer's happiness
Another colleague's happiness..

We'll all die someday..
You're happy today, doesn't mean you wouldn't be sad someday.

RIP Herbert.
The wise will take the lesson learnt from your life and death and make adjustment while the foolish will continue to display a non-challant attitude, rant, complain, cry and eventually perish in their misery.

Life is funny.

That's why we must always endeavour to live by God's word.

All things in this world are deception if we are not wise in knowing God.

Enjoy what God gives to you. Try to live s mark, honour and worship God, and lastly accept Jesus as your Lord and Personal Saviour.
