It is with deepest sorrow that we, the Ilegbodu family line of the Ibhieze Family, announce the transition to glory of our dearly beloved Son, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, Nephew, and Friend.

He was called home on March 20, 2009 following a brief Illness in Los Angeles, CA

We celebrate His simplicity, His cheerful attitude, His sense of family, and His exceptional Good Heart. He will surely be missed by everyone who knows Him.

We Love You Brother/uncle Festus but God Loves Most!!

Dear Festus,

I was so saddened when I found out a couple of years to late about your passing. The last time I saw you was Aril 2004 in the Los Angeles area. I wish I had known about your illiness. You were one of the nicest friend a person could have had. I know the Lord has much for you to do in Heaven, I also know that you are missed by your family and friends. We loved you greatly but God loved you best. Rest In Peace! Lena

Dear Brother Festus,

Can a mother forget her sauking child NO IS THE ANSWER, so also i can never forget you uncle.

You have left a vacum in my heart, which only you can fill for my joy in life. Infact, you will ever remain in my memory.

Rest In Perfect Peace Uncle.

The funeral was surreal ...... but was grand and completely befitting of someone like you who was so caring, boisterous and had made significant contributions to your community and family. Rest In Peace uncle........ If I had known that the last time I would see you was at the graduation at Stanford, I would have tried to hang out with you more, talk with you more about your business, plans, call you more on the telephone etc. You will really be missed by so many....I cannot believe you will not be at the next family reunion, and the next and the next... We will continue to pray for you. Love, isi

Dear Brother Festus,
it hurts me so much to know you are reading this mail from our heavenly home, I was hoping you would read a diffrent mail from me soon on my personal growth before the year runns out as you always do.I will miss all your suggestions on moving forward and fighting odds.

I was loking forward to meeting you physically on this deadly place called earth but I know we would meet one day face to face when I will join you on a day unknown to me.but till then Brother,pray for us who are still on the race and battle of life.

Remember we love you, REST IN PEACE & Good night.
