MY TRIBUTE TO A VENERABLE PER EXCELLENCE

The news and reality of your passing away to the great beyond remains a shock to me, having discussed extensively with you about the future just a week time. I don't really know why it must be now. Missing you makes life tasteless to me. Knowing you brought a holistic transformation into my life. Rest in peace my hero and mentor.

TRIBUTE TO MY SPIRITUAL FATHER, VEN. DR. OBINNA D. C. IBEZIM. GREATLY LOVED; DEEPLY MISSED

“There are special people in our lives who never leave us, even after they are gone" - D. Morgan Daddy, writing a tribute for you at this time is the most unexpected thing and a very difficult task to do. This tribute, probably, may have been among the very last to be submitted. This is occasioned by the fact that I feel drained of both physical and mental energy to do just that. Truly, I am bereft of words to write a befitting tribute to you considering your towering yet noiseless qualities. Daddy, you represented the finest of priesthood. You were an epitome of godliness. In you we saw a clear confluence of dignity, quality and purity. You were a paragon of humility, an emblem of ministerial integrity, a capstone of selflessness and a citadel of wisdom yet you bore all these with godly disposition. With your towering academic heights, your enviable ecclesiastical positions, your very wealthy and noble family background and your very unique privileges in life, you never for once made anyone of us to feel inferior before you. The least amongst us always felt valued, encouraged and motivated in your presence. Daddy, the truth is that you were our best. Oh, what a world! We lost our best. To me and many others, you were a father and will forever be. You were an encourager, a helper, a role model and a mentor. My ministry, especially within the Anglican Communion, wouldn't have happened without you. You yielded... VIEW FULL TRIBUTE

A TRIBUTE TO AN ANGEL IN HEAVEN

The news of your death came as a shock to me, I always believed you will live life to the fullest, little did I know that there was a sad reality ahead. You were a man of wisdom and truth and you were known to always show love to people around you. I am grateful that in this life, I had the opportunity to call you father and I count it as one of my biggest blessings received from God. You always stood up for me and made sure I did the right things. You never looked down on my abilities but you always encouraged me and had so much faith in me and this sincerely has driven me to achieve much more than I taught I will ever be. It could appear that you are gone but I just want to let you know that the zeal and discipline you've planted in me will always keep growing to never without and you will forever live in our hearts.

It's a cruel world, I would have loved to have you around even for much longer, but I guess it's time you had a peaceful rest. I will never forget what you've taught me, that patience yields success. I promise to make you proud, just as you always made me proud. The memories of you, which I have and shared will remain a living existence.

Goodnight my Angel

Rest in peace Dad.

A TRIBUTE TO THE VEN. OBINNA IBEZIM

NO MAN HAS POWER OVER THE DAY OF HIS DEATH (Ecclesiastes 8:8). He was a respected Pastor. No matter the order of ministry, or office he held, the Venerable Obinna Ibezim, Teacher, Priest, Canon, Lecturer, etc,—— the most distinguishing mark of who he was, was “FRIENDSHIP”. We are sure that many will attest to this. He was a very young priest in this church when we knew him. We appreciated his wisdom, his gentle approach to issues, his prayer life, and the grace in expository preaching. 

The Ven. Obinna and the wife, approached my wife and I, to be their spiritual father and mother, right from the inception of their marriage. We are glad to serve them in this capacity. The couple have been our friends, ll date. O LORD, send the Holy Spirit (the Comforter, to all who are devastated by this sad news. In Your mercy, LORD speak peace to us, and make us to trust You more. TEACH US, O LORD, NOT TO HOLD ON TO LIFE TOO TIGHTLY; TEACH US TO HOLD IT AS A GIFT TO CHERISH AND TO HALLOW; TEACH US TO HOLD TENACIOUSLY TO CHRIST, WHOSE KNOWING IS ABUNDANT LIFE OVERFLOWING TO ETERNITY;TEACH US TO LET GO WHEN THE GIVER COMES FOR IT , THROUGH WHATEVER MEANS; TEACH US TO KNOW THAT THIS CHRIST IS THE GIVER OF LIFE , AND HE IS GREATER THAN LIFE ITSELF ;TEACH US TO CLING TO THIS JESUS CHRIST, WHO DIED AND ROSE FROM THE DEAD, LEADING ALL WHO...

A tribute to a Father and Mentor

Drawing selective inspirations from a poem by Russell Kelfer: You were who you were for a reason You were part of an intricate plan You were a precious and perfect unique design Called God's special man You looked like you did for a reason Our God made no mistake He knit you together within the womb You were just what He wanted to make The parents you had were the ones He chose You were custom- designed with God's plan in mind And you bore the master's seal. INDEED, GOD MADE NO MISTAKE, YOU WERE JUST WHAT HE WANTED TO MAKE!

Daddy, the news of your death came with a deep wound to my heart. Your life was in tandem with the life of Christ whom you preached. This could be seen in your disposition, humility, fatherhood, words, etc. One thing I won't forget is that you achieved a lot but you were not drumming for the praises of men but you sought the praise of God. You overcame by the blood of the lamb and by the words of your testimony. It is my prayer that God would grant us the grace and comfort of the blessed Holy Spirit even in this period and beyond. Rest on thou gallant soldier of the cross. God is faithful.
