If lighting candles it is, then I would light streets up for my all in one daddy, I call him the patient farmer. Mr Boniface Ugochukwu Ofoegbu whom the good lord deemed fit to take on the 4th of may 2013, just about when he should reap a harvest. Life has been different without you, but I can't but thank God for the privilege of having had you as a father. My only wish now is that you find peace with God. Rest in peace dee Ugo, as for living, you sure will live as long as I do

I light a candle for my sweet daddy Ganiyu Adekola Jimoh.Daddy, Your death is a big blow to me and i am yet to recover from it. I told you i was coming to see you and you said you would be expecting me. The next thing i heard was the rude news of your death. I am still in pains you know.am crying right now. your kind loving heart is rare to find. I told myself today that if we both happen to be in a warzone, you will tell me to run along and leave you so i wont come into harms way.such is the depth of your love for your children. you often went hungry while we had the last food at home. you never denied us of anything.You loved us with a deep and complete love. I love you so much daddy and will greatly miss you.Shola said Grandpa has gone to Jesus and the Angels. Am pretty sure you are with them. Eniolorunmo, sun re o.

I'm lighting this candle for all the youths who were my schoolmates in AGGS,asaba and UNIBEN but died in the course of their studies,especially Peace Osayem who i always quarrelled with and never really liked back then but died after our SSCE,and Precious Samuel who graduated as the overall best student in her set but died before her service. I cant seem to forget you all.

I have several candles to light. I guess I'd have to settle for one big candle for them all.

My heart bleeds when I think of all those I've lost. Sometimes, it makes me ponder (dangerously) on how God thinks.

However, I have decided to ponder less and move on constructively...until I can move no more!

I am lighting this candle for my dear and wonderful indian friend SUDARD PRADYUT.It came as a big shock when your dealth was announced inOct 2011.I could not forgive my self for not reconciling with you before your demise.i could remember vividly on yahoo chat telling you not to buzz me again, thinking that the hand of death would not smell your side.

You were a very kind man above all men i have encountered, a selfless, kind and very intelligent individual.why would death ever come your way all,i wonder some times but i later realize that death comes to all us but at what time and age is wht make it different.

Each time i close from work passing through your formal place, memories kept creeping in of our good time together.Stay in the lord, Das.

Lighting a candle in memory of our dear courageous friend PERX,  She will be laid to rest today.

SOMEWHERE

Somewhere beyond the sunsets end

The skies are bright and fair

No shadows dim, no darkness falls

The land is peaceful there

Someone with the power to heal

To guide and understand

Is waiting there to claim our fears

And take us by the hand

So when a dear one heeds the call

Our hearts should be at rest

For there beyond the rainbow end

A loving God knows best

RIP Princess, Always remember that you were greatly loved and will be sorely missed!

I never knew I will be posting so soon on NL or that it will be on this thread. I have been a guest on this forum for 3 years now but only registered few days ago.

My father-in-law died this morning.

Am still in shock without even realizing it cos I gotta be strong for hubby. Last time I saw you was at my wedding almost a year ago. We have been talkin on phone since and one of your favorite line whenever I call is to tell me that I have forgotten you even though the calls could not have been more than 2 weeks apart. Last week when you started feeling down, I called you and asked if you were thinking. Your answer still brings a smile to me. You said that as a man, you are supposed to think (told hubby you are very funny), and I told you to leave that to us kids to do. You promised you would henceforth. Two nights ago after your check up, we asked you to comply strictly to doctor's prescription and you consented but added that your wife should start petting you. Of course we laughed at that. You also told hubby that he will play your role in a family celebration we were all looking forward to next month to which we promptly disagreed with you, I even told you that you are yet to see your grand kids. I do not think you heard me cos you moved on to another subject.

Then yesterday morning, hubby sent me a text that your sugar level has gone up to 441 and that your bp was 160/80. I immediately called Mumsi and then spoke with you. You assured me you have accepted to be admitted and promised to be a good patient (you always listened to me even when you refuse to listen to anyone). That was the last I spoke with you. I had promised to call back later but when hubby did, we were told you were asleep. Only for us to be woken up around past 3am today with the awful news. I could not cry, was just shaking uncontrollably (in a normal situation, hubby would have been concerned since I almost never feel cold by his standards). For the first time, I saw my husband cry today. He has gone to the village, am home alone. Then I remembered this thread and here am I, lighting this candle for you.

You made an unforgettable impression on me the first time I met you. I came to visit hubby in 2003 I think. You left what you were doing and spent quiet some time with me gisting. Twas the first time the parent of a friend did that to me (and I promised myself afterwards that I will always get to know my kids' friends, possibly become their friends too). You were fun that day. Next few visits (that tend to be almost a year apart) had you trying to matchmake hubby and I. Told you that we were just great pals but I knew you were serious. When I finally visited again in 2008 as his babe, the one thing that helped me settle and flow with the family was my already established relationship with you. Thank you for this awesome son of yours who doubles as my best friend and husband. Thank you for truly taking me in as your daughter.

I regret you will not see your  grand kids. I had good plans for you. You would have liked them. I was looking forward to seeing you next month at Lag, now its your remains I will be seeing soon. Its still a rude shock. A very rude shock indeed.

I will miss you. Truly. Will tell the kids about you when they come. Some parents would have been pressuring for grand kids but in certain ways, you acted like a white man. The recent stuff with my job that prompted Mumsi to mention me during your prayers had you calling me few weeks ago. You said,"I asked her whether it was MY OWN RHAPSODY! (was so touched by the highlighted)" and you promptly called to reassure yourself that I was ok. You will be sorely missed.

Good night Dad! Adieu!

I want to light a candle for my dearest Aunt Louisa who left us almost a year ago.

You are sorely missed but fondly remembered.

God may not have blessed you with the fruit of the womb but u sure touched all your nieces and nephews with the love of a mother.

It hurts me when i think i could have done a little more to make your last days on earth a bit more enjoyable and i pray you find it in your heart to forgive me.

Wherever you are i know one thing, that the good Lord God has blessed you with the gift of eternal life. We all love and miss you and can't wait to see you once again.

I light 3 candles in sweet memory of the "wind beneath my wings" my dearest mother,  May 14 2008, my precious mother's spirit took flight and became an Angel of sorts watching over her children and loved ones.

The pain of loosing her is still so raw and I wonder, will it ever get better? In all honesty, I want my mom back and would give anything to just talk to her, touch her hands, laugh with her, hear her scream at me for being foolish, I just want her back! But we don't always get what we want or ask for do we? I guess I just have to make do with her memories.

Farewell to you and the youth I have spent with you. It was but yesterday we met in a dream.

You have sung to me in my aloneness, and I of your longings have built a tower in the sky.

But now our sleep has fled and our dream is over, and it is no longer dawn.

The noontide is upon us and our half waking has turned to fuller day, and we must part.

If in the twilight of memory we should meet once more, we shall speak again together and you shall sing to me a deeper song.

And if our hands should meet in another dream, we shall build another tower in the sky.

I love you mom Irene, you are forever missed!
