"“There is an appointed time for everything, A time for every activity under the heavens: A time for birth and a time to die; A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to wail and a time to dance; A time to throw stones away and a time to gather stones together; A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to search and a time to give up as lost; A time to keep and a time to throw away; A time to rip apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak, A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace. Ecclesiates 3: 1-8.
Losing a loved one often throws us into a gamut of emotions as described by the inspired writer of Ecclesiates. As each year passes since the death of your loved one, I pray that times of "healing", "laughing", "dancing", and "loving" have overtaken their counterparts of weeping and wailing, and that fond memories keep her forever alive in your heart.
One day very soon, you will experience a time of perfect happiness and everlasting peace as you welcome back Ms. Annie to life. "43 When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: “Lazʹa·rus, come out!” 44 The man who had been dead came out........" John 11:43, 44"
"Mmo, we miss you so much but we are consoled by the good, selfless and exemplary life that you lived here on earth. And we know that you are at a better( with the LORD)..Jagha jua ezi mmo m!!!!"
"Momsie, Jokwa wo! It's been 6 years already and your grandchildren are growing to become pretty damsels. Memories of you always bring a smile to my face. Was in Item over the weekend and your presence is still very real around Annie Anyagwo Imo House. You will forever remain in our hearts & mind.Love you lots."
"Thank you Lord for every remembrance of my Mother always feels me with so much pride and joy! Please help me to be the best me, to all who come my way especially my family and loved ones."
"As you reflect on the birth and passing of your mom, may you find comfort and strength in God's assurance of the resurrection hope. May treasured memories keep her living in your hearts until God's promises are fulfilled (Isaiah 25:8 & John 11: 43, 44). I'm very sorry for your loss."
"Today would have been Mommy's 85th birthday. We remember her with love and admiration. To God be the glory!"
"Four years has gone by so quickly. Miss you so so much. God knows."
"I have never known you untill i met your duaghter, who is my director. At your age, you were still an ANGEL to behold. Though i knew you for a short time before you answered the HOLY call, whoever know your daughther and her siblings can testify that they were nurtured and brought up by a great mother. Farewell, great mother."
"Wow! Time does indeed fly. 3 years already!!!!. God has indeed been awesome these last 3 years. You went home, then dad joined you, but God sent us comfort and we can laugh and sing again. It is well with your seed. Agape, Oriaku"
"It's been 3 years. We still miss our Mom today. We remember Mommy for her patience, humility, hardwork, diligence, excellence of spirit, steadfast love and devotion to God and her entire family. May the same be said of us. Amen!"
"Dear dear Mums. Gone to rest. You did your best, your very best. We are all well. Your prayers and belief in Jesus have been justified in the legacy you left behind. We shall not let you down. I will not let you down. You ran a great race and now that the baton has been passed, we all shall continue to the best of our ability knowing that you would be glad that we did."
Today would have been Moms 83rd birthday. We will continue to celebrate her. Thinking of mom, always brings a smile to my face. Every memory of her is pleasant. She was a good mother. May our children also be able to say same of us. Oriaku"
"My every remembrance of Momsie is joyful. Now I appreciate that song Sweet Mother, I no go forget you....From the scriptures, I have a clear understanding that Mom has run her race and gone ahead into the next phase of Eternity. For those of us here, while we still have the luxury of time, may we all really and truly discover the purpose for which we are on earth and run our race well too!"
"I really started to see Mom as such a precious jewel when she spent a month with me after the very traumatic delivery of our daughter- Lemaeke Faith. Her calmness, capacity to love, organisational ability and spiritual depth are virtues I covet. 2 years already? I miss my Mom."
"It's been 2 years but I still miss my Mom. I guess somehow I always will.
The memory of the just is blessed! Prov. 10:7"
"It's been more than one year and God has been faithful to heal and to see us through. Our God is faithful!"
