Tribute to Ven. Dr. Obinna Ibezim

To everything there is a season and time for every purpose under heaven. But this is untimely and came as a rude shock. My wife and I came in from Abuja (from our daughter's wedding) when the news was broken to us. Our happiness turned to sadness. We grieve and are in pain but cannot question God. Our consolation is that you are in a better place of eternal rest. You were always there for anyone who needed your support, service and counselling. You will continue to be in our hearts. May God grant your soul eternal rest as you journey to the great beyond.

Sir Maduakolam Nwachuku

TRIBUTE TO MY COUSIN

Obi, I received with rude shock the news of your sudden departure. You have made an impact on your generation. You have left indelible footprints on the sands of time. We are not happy that you have left as a young man. As St Paul said, in 2 Tim. 4:6-8, you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, you have kept the faith; there is laid up for you the crown of righteousness. You worked very hard to maintain your family and you were a dedicated laborer in God's vineyard. Rest in peace in the Lord; Goodbye until we meet to part no more. Shalom.

Your Cousin,

Pastor Godwin O. Ibezim.

Our Tributes to Our Loving Uncle

I remember the first time I met Uncle Obi. He greeted my siblings and me with a joyous tone, and when he looked back at us, his dimples were on full display as he offered a big smile. That moment set the tone for that visit and every other time I had the pleasure of seeing my uncle. He radiated kindness and wisdom, and even when we did something wrong, he corrected us with love and understanding. Never yelling, but offering knowledge and counsel. We explored a bit that visit and found ourselves at a farmer’s market right by a small beach where boats docked. It was then that I had the pleasure of seeing my father and uncle tell stories of their past and playfully poke fun at each other. Laughter and smiles filled the air as we sat and ate. I did not want it to end, and it never really did. Every time I saw my uncle, he always came bearing the same gift of warmth and joy. My sweet Uncle Obi, I will forever be grateful for the prayers, kindness, and love you continuously offered me. Every time you called to let me know you were in town, you would always start by saying, " Hello Udobeke & quot; I would always mistake your voice for my father's, but I have come to understand that love carries the same tone. It's devastating to think that I will not hear your voice again, but I find solace in... VIEW FULL TRIBUTE

My Sweet Uncle Obii

My Sweet Uncle Obii, you once wrote, “The greatness of a man does not consist of his size, wealth, or his education. But one who is truly great is one who is truly wise. Wisdom is to know God and to serve Him”. And you did just that. 

And while this gives me peace and a measure of comfort, my heart still breaks as I really do miss you a lot…your kind smile, your calm voice, your constant words of encouragement, your prayers and your steadfast faith: all things that you will always be remembered for. Chai my darling Uncle Obi … I still can’t believe you’re gone but as we’ve all been saying to each other “It Is Well”.

Dede’m, continue to rest peacefully.

You will forever be in my heart.

I love you,

Kelly

Tribute to my Uncle

My uncle Obii, how can I summarize my time with you in one paragraph or one page? When I think of you, I just think there’s this bad dream that I’ll soon wake up from but it’s taking too long uncle. All we have are beautiful memories. Uncle, you made prayer look so simple because you said it should be a way of life. You lived a simple, uncomplicated life, yet you loved the good things of life. I really wanted you to meet KemKem but not to worry, I’ll tell her all about you. Life is indeed fickle. Who is going to call me Zigizigi? I mean aunty Nne would but it’s not the same. I’m struggling with the fact that I won't get to talk to you or see you again. I am devastated and I have questions but I don’t know who to ask. I asked Mikey what you’d want us to do and I literally answered myself and he agreed with me. You’d tell us not to worry, and all things work together for good. In everything, give thanks hasn't been this hard to say. Grateful for the passage that says blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. This is an assurance that we will indeed be comforted. Continue to rest in God’s bosom Uncle Obii.
