“June 2016 Graceline Aarons Bright

It left a positive indelible impression on my life. I am now 76 years old & I can still the conjuring in my mind as I read that book. My imagination went wild. May his spirit and soul forever rest in peace and may God bless the family from which he came. I share your sorrow sincerely.
“Please accept my sincere condolences and sincere prayers that go out to the surviving family and friends. May the God of comfort continue to bless you and yours especially after such an untimely loss of a very precious life please accept my deepest sympathies. (2 Cor. 1:2, 3).
“Life is precious and was meant to be lived. Draw comfort from God's word.
“Achebe was a great man; the iroko tree has fallen but its roots are still penetrating ourselves. FB
“A touching legacy for a great talent who has done so much and cared so deeply for others through fine works “I pray that he may grant you through the abundance of his glory to be made mighty in the man you are inside, with power through his spirit… (Ephesians 3:16) May the family have peace we cherish the special memories.
