Christopher was a great guy. We were members of the same Management Associate recruiting class at my first job in New York City after MBA graduation. Christopher was always friendly and a reliable resource for good advice. When our paths diverted as our careers advanced, I missed our interactions. He was too young to leave us. I regret we didn't reconnect and would have enjoyed that.

My deepest condolences to Christopher's family and close friends. Rest in peace Christopher.

My dear brother and friend Bona, you have left a gaping wound in my heart. I went numb when I heard of your passing. My only consolation is that I know you are in a good place. I'm smiling now because I'm thinking of your quirky personality and your fussy ways especially with food and hotels. I smile each time I pass by a "Westin Hotel" because I remember you branding it one of the best corporate hotels, after detailed inspections of other hotels anytime you came to town for business.
I guess I'll now have to forget about the "Birkin bag" you promised. We both knew it was never going to happen so I'll shelve the thought.😊
Bona, you are gone from our sight but never from our hearts, and your memory will live with us forever.
Anyemi, yaa wo ojogbaan !

I am deeply saddened by your passing. To me you were always Stella and Chief's friend Bona. Our paths crossed intermittently over the years, always in their company but what a gentleman you were and what a joy to be around! I'm grateful to have seen you again last December. The memories of that evening will never fade. Rest peacefully, Bona. Rest well.

We are deeply saddened and reeling from your sudden passing, yanked from this world much too soon.

A dignified life of integrity and sensibility, with an abiding love and support for family and friends, leaving an indelible impression on all who met you.

"Nante ye, Wofa Christopher, nante ye."

Dear Bona,
Thanks for everything. It was always a blast when we met. I will miss you.
Even though this is a difficult time for those of us left here, the posts reflect the countless lives you touched. That, my brother, is a testament to your character and the love you had for others.
Rest well until we meet again!

Brother, thanks for all the good times and the laughs. You will be missed dearly.

"The golden evening brightens in the West;
Soon, soon to faithful warriors cometh rest;
Sweet is the calm of paradise the blest. Alleluia! Alleluia!"

Christopher was always the bright spot for me when I visited NYC and we used to have great conversations about stocks in particular how stupid Tesla was trading for more than it would be ever worth. We were both wrong but always had a good shake of our heads together. He will be greatly missed am reflective of the fact as I was to see him in May.

I was incredibly saddened to learn of your passing. I treasure the memories of our conversations and debates over the years. You brightened every room that you entered and elevated every discussion that you joined. You brought a level of compassion and insight to your work that is all too rare.

We will miss you dearly.
