Tribute to my ROLE MODEL
Memorial Picture of Ven. Dr. Obinna David Chukwudinma Ibezim

Venerable Sir, I truly don’t know what to write because never in my imagination did, I see you leave this early. The last discussion we had in the parsonage is one that I’ll remember. Your death has left a void in my life, knowing you has been a great impact in my life. You are a father, a mentor, an achiever, a giver, a builder and a source of encouragement. Coming to know you and your family is a blessing to me and it brought great joy in my life, I cherish it Sir. Goodbye Sir, till we meet on the last day.

Uba. as you fondly call me.

MAN OF GOD

Man of God...my MOG as I call you. I just called your phone and it rang, as it was ringing, I was praying you would answer on the other side and call me MARTOO as you usually do...And we will talk and pray. But it was your Wife that picked up. So here I am hoping you will call me back, when you return from your meeting with Christ Jesus. You are and will always remain my big brother, my interceder, my MOG. I don't even know what to do, tears flow freely from my eyes as I type this. But am consoled that your meeting with God will yell fruits for all that you love, because you always looking out for everyone. You were my guardian angel and will always be. MOG thank you for everything. My heart is broken, but I am consoled by the life you lived.

SLEEPING, NOT DEAD.

Daddy Ibezim as I fondly call you; you were to me, a Father, Adviser Teacher, Mentor, an encourager, a Priest of God in the rank of an Archdeacon, and a seasoned child of God. You had good thoughts for me.

I wish you were still alive physically. A man of sterling qualities; your words were full of grace and encouragement. You touched the life of so many, encouraged the weak hearted and firmly supported the feeble mind; You were a beckon of light to many, a role model.

You treated all equally, the rich and the poor. Your understanding of the scripture and manner in which you taught and preached were captivating and outstanding, Your smiles so infectious and contagious. All those who were privileged to come near could easily attest.

Venerable Ibezim, your life on earth may have been brief but impactful. You fought the good fight, kept the faith and finished strong. The Lord your God shall give you the crown of righteousness. Your words continue to ring bell in my heart; "It is not the manner in which one died but the life lived". You were aware of what was coming though; you never wished to inform anyone. As painful as it was, yet you submitted to the will of your creator. You have translated to eternity where there is no sorrow, no pain. Your good works and services shall go before you. Though you are dead, you are still alive. For in Christ, nothing shall separate us, No! Not... VIEW FULL TRIBUTE

TRIBUTE TO AN INCREDIBLE DADDY

To pen down a tribute to You DADDY is the most perilous thing I have ever got to do all my life, words can hardly suffice. Silently and soberly I have wondered why? Why do you have to go and why now?

The futility is eye watering, Daddy without hesitation you could give up anything for people, you care for all, there are many things that you will be remembered for. You were an embodiment of peace, love care, tolerance and humility. A hard working man of faith, a man of truth, a man of value, a man of integrity and wealth of knowledge.

With tears in my eyes, with pains in my heart and with sorrows in my life, it is indeed painful to tell the world that I have lost my second DADDY.

In John 11vs44, Jesus demonstrated his power of resurrection in the life of his friend Lazarus. Yes, you are still God today, tomorrow and forever you can do something in the life of our daddy, when Jesus got to Lazarus he specifically called His name and the dead man came forth, please God call our daddy to come forth. I am so pained I wish I could do anything to make you live some more.

This is really heart breaking but all I can say is rest well in the bosom of the lord DADDY.
