TRIBUTE TO A GREAT SERVANT OF GOD LATE VEN. OBINNA IBEZIM

Obi, writing your tribute is one of the worst experiences of our life as a family. Your sudden exit from this world is so painful and difficult for us to believe. When we spoke with you on the evening of Thursday, the 13th of April, you assured us you would visit by the weekend when you come back from Ebonyi State. We were filled with expectancy that one of our beloved Sons would come visiting as usual, with his charming and infectious smiles, jokes, words of encouragement and sharing of his work and life experiences and we would pray together as always. Words cannot express the rude shock we passed through and are still passing through when the news of your sudden demise came to us the following day. To say the least, it is still a hard pill to for the entire family to swallow. Obi, we got to know you through your parents in the diocese of Umuahia. The relationship spread through to your siblings down to your entire family. Our personal relationship with you as our second Chaplain in the Diocese of Umuahia down to the Diocese of Aba as our administrative assistant, Knights' Chaplain etc. created a great bond between the two families. You passed through us in all the stages of your ministry as a Minister of God. All the duties assigned to you, you performed creditably with all sincerity, total commitment and dedication.

You were honest to a fault but to your credit and to... VIEW FULL TRIBUTE

A GENTLEMAN, SERVANT OF THE MOST HIGH AND DEAR BROTHER, TAKES AN EARLY FLIGHT HOME!

Whenever I think about Obi like I fondly call him, I remember his bright dimpled smile. He had one for everybody he met along the way. I also remember his faith, soothing, steady, reassuring. I imagine him at this moment saying “Nwanyi bekee…it is well; God is still God” and inviting us to pray. My heart bleeds at the Thought of never seeing him on this side of creation. But as I look back and remembers the life that he led, I know he is smiling down at us with his signature smile telling us that God is in control. Obi was a devoted son, a supportive brother, a loving husband, a great daddy not only to his children but to his nieces, nephews, cousins and flock, an amazing uncle, and a very dear friend. Although he has left an unbearable void, he left us a part of him that neither me nor even his death can ever take away. What makes it bearable is knowing that Obi served God faithfully, prepared for a me like this and left us with a lifetime of wonderful memories. Obi exuded strength, warmth, and kindness. He appreciated every effort and would beam in happiness over a simple, seemingly insignificant gift.

To all of us who knew him, he was always there for us. Indeed, each me we travelled home to Ezeoke, Obi and Nne would drive over from Aba to be with us in a heartbeat. It seemed all so effortless. One man mentioned someone... VIEW FULL TRIBUTE

My amazing Uncle OBINNA

Uncle Obi, till now I still find it so hard, so so hard to believe that you are gone! How! I am still in doubt! My amazing Uncle, I really miss you. So if I come on holiday again in your house, I won’t see you. If you are really gone uncle, then God took you home and I know He will comfort us all. I love you Uncle Obi!

God loves you best!

TRIBUTE TO A SERVANT OF GOD

1. Fading away like the stars of the morning,

Losing their light in the glorious sun—-

Thus would we pass from the earth and its toiling,

Only remembered by what we have done.

Only remembered, only remembered,

Only remembered by what we have done ;

Thus would we pass from the earth and its toiling,

Only remembered by what we have done.

2. Shall we be missed, though by others succeeded, 

Reaping the fields we in spring-me have sown?

Yes, but the sowers must pass from their labors,

Ever remembered by what they have done.

3. Only the truth that in life we have spoken,

Only the seed that on earth we have sown;

These shall pass onward when we are forgotten,

Fruits of the harvest and what we have done.

4. Oh, when the Saviour shall make up His jewels,

When the bright crowns of rejoicing are won,

Then shall His weary and faithful disciples

All be remembered by what they have done. 

I woke up with this song on the last day of submitting this tribute and I felt this is the best way to mourn your demise! Rudest shock ever, still speechless, but I take solace only in the lord! I will never mourn like an unbeliever. God is still God, ever Faithful, ever sure! 

Bro Obi, KEEP RESTING IN THE BOSOM OF THE LORD!
