IT WAS a harvest of tears for  the royal family of Nnabuife of Ubuluisiuzo, Ihiala Local Government Area as friends and well -wishers gathered to bid farewell to the late Prince Ifeanyi Olisaemeka Nnabuife.

  Prince Ifeany, until his death, was a younger brother to the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Anambra Newspapers and Printing Corporation ( ANPC), publisher of National Light, Ka O Di Taa and SportslightXTRA newspapers, Sir Chuka Nnabuife.

  The late Ifeanyi, also known as  Akuabata, who died on  December 26, 202, after a brief illness,  at the age of 51, was a hero and devoted Christian as described by family and friends.

  During the homily, Rev. Fr. Bartholomew Nworah said that death cannot separate us from the love of God, so we need to amend our lives and always see our neighbors like Christ and live a holy life.

  Speaking after the Funeral Mass, the MD/CEO of ANPC, Sir Chuka Nnabuife, on behalf of the entire family of the deceased, welcomed and thanked everyone who came to commiserate with them and to pay their last respect to their brother, noting that one value they have learnt with the death of his younger brother is the value of friendship and relationship.

  In his words, “we are going to sustain the friendship he had with you and we are asking you for one thing. Once my brother goes to his final home, please join us in praying for him and spare a minute to say may his soul rest in peace and pray for him as much as you can. We cannot thank you enough for sparing your time to come and stand under the sun. But please, take it as a token you can give to my brother who is a very jolly good fellow. Thank you very much.”

  The wife of the deceased, Mrs. Elochukwu Joy Nnabuife said, ” the death of my husband is something I never thought of. He loved, pampered and was ready to sacrifice anything for me. I don’t know how to cope without him; I have never felt this heartbroken and vulnerable in my life. I miss you so much my hero, I pray your soul rest in the blossom of the lord “.

  The deceased sister, Mrs Uchechukwu Nnaewulu described his late brother as a hero, ” he is always there whenever you call him;, a man that stood for justice. You were a real brother’s keeper. I pray such untimely death will not see the family of Nnabuife and may his soul rest in peace.”

  The first son of the deceased,  Uzoeghelu Nnabuife, expressed how much he was already missing his father. I miss his food because he was a good cook.” My dad was a man of his words and If I  learnt something from my daddy, it’s  to stand by the truth. I promise to make you proud”.

  In a tribute, the  late Ifeanyi’s nephew, Chukwuebube Moses Nnabuife,  said ” neither notes of flattery nor derogation,  mine’s just heart-deep prayer underscored by anticipation.  I hope to see you some day, see him smiling with a lot of things to say and I will ask him to tell me those lovely stories that i could not ask him on earth’s boundaries.

  Clergy men present at the event included; the parish priest,  St John the Baptist Church, Ubulusizor, Rev. Fr. Felix Umegboro,  Rev. Fr Christian Mbaukwu, Rev. Fr Calistus Ekwutosi, among  others.
