These lines clearly demonstrated the level of tolerance of our dear departed brother, friend and colleague and a guidance Counsellor to all and sundry.

Samuel John’s song is ended, but the melody lingers.
I am grateful to God that he was able to do what he did for Journalism as a profession particularly given the challenging environment in which Journalists operate in the country.
Samuel John was an embodiment of hope and success in the trying days of the Journalism profession in the Country and by extension SLAJ
He was able to achieve what he did for the Journalism profession through hardwork, perseverance, dedication, consistency and sacrifice, spanning a couple of years.
Journalists and friends, DEATH is indeed a cruel and heartless enemy, that all of us must confront at a point in time and that is inevitable. All of us deal with death at some time or another.
Family members, accept my sincere condolence, you are not alone, in this your hour of grief.
But there is a God who understands your grief. Nothing will change the fact that death is inevitable but that God who has given us the victory over death in Jesus Christ, we are assured of a new life in the great beyond with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Mr. John will continue to be cherished in our hearts and we pray that his gentle soul will rest in perfect peace. “Sleep on beloved and take your rest “
