A TRIBUTE TO A FATHER, AN UNCLE, FRIEND, MENTOR AND ACHIEVER
I will miss you papa and will always love you and will never forget you Big Daddy and the special moments and advice you gave me. He was a good story teller.
Your saying : “What ever you eat is what you go to bed with, though wealth is good but good health is the ultimate” I will always remember.
You have lived a good life Papa.
You taught us the importance of family and love for each other.
He was full of strength and life with lots of plans…God please bless his soul Amen.
The Okoyes’ families and masses you have touched and held dearly will never forget you in a hurry Papa.
I wish to see you once again,
safe journey Papa.
Though his gone but his spirit lives on.
Okoye Ikechukwu I.S
