Pa Amkpa, as I fondly called you.
You were all sides of the minor to me. Your dogged hospitality, care and so much concerned about mu progress and life challenges will be evergreen in my memory. To many, you were a different sides of the coin; could be blunt even to a fault yet you were amiable.
When I recall when we cajole each other on past experiences, the flogger who never spared your cane at any given time; strict disciplinarian and little or no room for indolence; so the cooled hand of death, had marked the end of the jokes and fun?
Pa Amkpa, your values to me and those who got in touch with you, can make volume. No wonder then, the words of Marcus Tullius Cicero “The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living we were not tired of having you around but the will of God surpasses all. Pa Amkpa, we missed you sleep well
Inwang Akpan Udo

WE WISH to the church of Christ, all dignitaries,Clergies, traditional rulers, other churches, friends, in-laws and relatives who is in their different ways have supported us in giving our most cherished husband, father, brother and grand father a successful burial.

May the good lord bless you abundantly and grant you journey mercies back to your different destinations. Amen.
