You were a good father, a leader by example, a disciplinarian, a fountain of knowledge - to not only your children and relatives, but to everyone whose path crossed with yours. You never failed to give academic, moral, financial and spiritual support to those who knew you. Dear dad, you are our pillar supporting our family and households. Dad you always made time for us and were a good listener to all our problems. Academically you made sure our needs were met. Muyeh, as we commonly called you, (dad), you were a man of values, a man of his words, a selfless person, a counselor and a teacher. I remember the wonderful Christmas 2011 we shared together in Atlanta GA. as a family. I did not see your departing any time soon. It is hard to say farewell. God who loves you so much, wraped his precious arms around you and put you to a deep sleep at 5:43a.m. Saturday, February 4, 2012. I know you are with the Lord, where there is no pain, no stress, no discomfort. Remember, we love you but God Almighty loves you best.
My loving dad,
God saw you getting tired,
So he put his arms around you
And whispered "Come with Me."
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer.
And saw you fade away.
Although we love you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating.
Working hands were put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best!
Farewell Muyeh, till we meet again. R.I.P
~Besong, your loving daughter, Omusen, as you commonly called me~
