It breaks my heart that you are no longer here, but I find peace knowing you believed in God and will see you again one day. It has been so long since I last seen you, but I will always remember your sweet and humorous soul. You always knew how to make us laugh. You were also tough when you needed to be. You raised two strong and independent children. Your legacy will continue through them. I'm praying for God's peace and comfort as they continue through this difficult time.

Tiffany is an old friend of mine, and she is such a wonderful person. My deepest condolences to her and her family. Lots of love and light to you all. Rest In Peace, Mr. Udeh Sr. I will keep you all in my thoughts as you transition into the upcoming days.

Love and light from my family to yours.

Tiffany & CJ, I know the memories of your father is bringing tears to your eyes today; I pray with my entire heart that one day those very memories of him will bring you both comfort. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, and I will forever be grateful for the many times he made us stop whatever we were about to get into for the day or night and listen to him preach to us about doing right in life and the importance of having true friendships. He will forever be in our hearts. Rest in Pure Love

I cannot believe you are no longer with us. You promised me that you were not going anywhere. You said you were going to fight this ugly virus. I believed you, because you have always told me that it is not our time, yet. I guess this was too much pain for you. I wish we could have held another conversation, before you decided to let go. You were the only man (except my Dad) who loved me unconditionally. I will always love you and will never forget you. Fifty years was not enough. I really miss you!!!!!!! BOBBY CLAY, WE HAD PLANS!!! What am I supposed to do now?
