I DEEPLY APPRECIATE THE LOVE AND SUPPORT
It is quite a symbolic Month in the year 2021. As my father Marches on to glory, the replay of those fatherly memories has become more frequent and creating a sublime nostalgia that is tinged with sadness. But I rise each time stronger and very strengthened by those same memories because they bear the marks of sacrifice and the pathways to honor. Thanks to God Almighty who has afforded us the grand opportunity to honor those memories.
My dear family members and relatives, distinguished friends and associates; beloved Rivers people and Nigerians all over the world, we are grateful for all the love you are graciously sending us this period and we are hopeful that as the activities to pay last respect to our beloved father begins on the 8 with a service of songs, you’ll be there all the way. May this March bring you abundant blessings and remarkable testimonies of joy. Amen!
Your friend and brother
Today I joined my family, relatives and Chiefs in Abonnema, Akuku-Toru Local Government Area and in Port Harcourt town to solemnly pay last respect to my brother, Late Hon. Harold Briggs and to commiserate with the family of Late Madam Elekima George who was today buried in Buguma Town, Asari-Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State. Ma Elekima passed on at the ripe age of 96 to the glory of God.
It is however painful that Harold Briggs died very untimely at the age of 48, but as a people of faith, we leave all to the unfailing wisdom of God Almighty. I sincerely wish their respective immediate families a full emotional healing and speedy relief as they struggle to come to terms with the reality of the deceased’s irreversible absence in their daily lives. May their souls rest in perfect peace.
