Since the time we entered into matrimony, fifty years ao, I have
enjoyed every minute we spent together, there was never a fight, never a
quarrel You gave me memories that will last forever.
Wife, ASaw

Haven't I told you, Dad, that I love you very, very much, haven't I told
you that you gave my life a happier brighter touch? No matter where I go
you will always be in my thought and dreams because of my love for you.
Son, Stephen

Dad, I kept vigil over you night and day, my lap was your pllow to
comfort you. You will always be the best Dad that God gave me.
Son, lude

Dad, you are the best thing that ever happened to me, words cannot
describe my love for you. rl miss your bull-head broth.
Daughter, Doren

When I wanted to hate, you taught me to love. When I was low, you
lifted me up. You gave a sigh of relief to me which will never ever depart
from me.
Daughter, Joephine

I am your favorite grandchild. When I am around you I feel like
staying forever... I miss my quarters for ice pop.
Grmnddaughter, Natau

It has been nice to spend a year in the church with our deaco an d he
gave me some encouragement about the Word of the Lord, so I will miss
him a lot, because he has been so faithful to me.

Brother, you were my right and left hand. You were my allin all to me.
You stood behind me until death, and I will miss you dearly.
