"To you Brother Kufre~abasi Inyang,  I declare a peaceful life unto you in Christ Jesus ~ Amen. We all have cried a River of Tears, now we must Recompense with respect whom it is due.  We must respect one another for there is love without respect and we all love you my brother. Mama came by to tell me to remind you and to tell you that she loves you very much.  ~ Brother Inyang

In the Valley of hope and dreams
Emotions and passion are truly revealed
Upon sorrow's tempest and raging sadness
Malevolent fears claim our times in flight

Scorching winds can slowly cloud the mind
Shadows of kindness may once disappear
But storms of challenges, uncertainties environ
It rains by day and the night through the morning

Then flows from the heart a River of Tears
Thoughts are eroded while the minds confused
The flames of blame flares with justification
No pauses, no reason and no logic to follow

In these moments dare to expand your mind
For change is an indulgence of moments in time
And permanence to no condition belongs
But beware of time as an invention that ends

Tears and fears will also come and pass
Sob at dawn but with courage and brevity
Comes the morning, the sun will brightly shine
And all your tears and fears will then subside"

"Sorrow's End
       by Inyang Inyang

How do you mend a broken heart like mine?
Bearing shadows of mysteries, fears and losses
How do you mend a scarred mind in raging storms?
When it ceaselessly pours upon God’s gracious gift

Here I am, the new widower upon a fresh tomb
Short of grace and full of irreconcilable anguish
I am famished without you, Mother; I’m desolate  
Even as sparrows sing upon the lowly meadows

But you taught me a way to face fear and distress
While we climbed the stairs of this tempestuous life  
You said to look beyond agonies, fears, even the stars
And hope, for one day I just might find my sorrows’ end"

It is difficult for me to believe that you are gone. For some reason, the thought of you dying, never occurred to me. I assumed that you will be there forever. That I will continue to make and receive calls from you every couple of days. That I could come over and visit you whenever I could and that I did not need to pray all the time, because you were there praying for us. I will now have to change my thinking to accomodate this reality.
I love you and will miss you till my last day on earth.
Sleep well Mama."

"Mumsy Lah Lah, as I usually called you. August 28th is a day that changed my life forever, how could mama be gone I asked? It's hard to believe but It's been almost a month now and I haven't heard your voice over the phone. It's never been quiet for this long. My heart is broken to realise we'll never hear that voice again, see that smile or embrace you like I always did. You were a wonderful mother to all, beautiful, kind, caring, loving and most of all God fearing. My tears fall freely as I write this tribute to you. Mama, I love you and I will never forget you. This is Koko-eka saying Rest in Peace till we meet again."

"Dear Family of Abigail,

I'm sorry that you are experiencing the mourning of losing a love one. Many if not all of us has experienced this, but I would like to share a brief scripture that will may just bring you comfort.

(Revelation 21:4) And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Thanks for reading."
