|Let the memory of Chioma be with us forever|
"You left too soon- way too soon, Betty."
"Oh dear! It's difficult to do this Betty. Lively, lovely, fun-filled Betty, I can't put words together here, I saw hope, and I felt energy when we prayed and I knew you conquered cancer, it didn't conquer you. You are a star still shining in our hearts, the soft breeze on our faces. You brought ripples of tears to our eyes at you glorious departure, yet your memory makes music in our hearts. Laughter forms on our lips when we remember just how DIFFERENT you could be. Kai Betty kin bar mu da kyewa. Rest on dearest!!!"
"Time has flown by so fast it seems, for I remember Betty the lovely young girl with a lovely smile and mischievous light heart. Nothing could bring her down in her pursuit of happiness. She was always happy and enjoyed a good joke. I don't know what to say except the death of every person diminishes me for nothing eases the pain of a voice we no longer will hear... maybe time. Maybe in time we will understand why death has robbed us all of your smile and your closest friends a confidant. Rest in peace old friend."
"Our one and only Betty!!! How good it is to be a good person! See how much love all your friends have showered upon you, See how even in death you are still highly celebrated. Betty the beautiful angel, the smiling angel, you were such an amiable person! You will forever remain in our hearts girl. I miss you. Continue to sleep on sweet Angel. Love you forever!"
"Happy birthday Betty dearest!"
"Today, 17th March would have been your birthday, wherever you are resting I hope that you can see how special and uplifting your memory is to me. I feel your presence with me in everything I do, so I'll light this candle in celebration of your birthday, but I'll spend it missing you."
"Betty, my heart still bleeds!!
My dear friend, where do I start? You were more than a friend to me, we were more like sisters. I can remember when I first
met you all those years ago in FUT, we were both teenagers. You were so full of life, so energetic, so beautiful. Your strength
of character is one of the things I admired so much about you. Up till the end you were still so brave, so strong. you fought
the battle with so much dignity and optimism. You took each day in your stride, never complaining, always with a smile on
your face. Saturdays are extremely difficult for me now because that was our 'special day'. I always looked forward to your
phone calls where we would gossip and reminisce about the good old days. We would talk for hours about our dreams,joys,
heartbreaks and victories. You honestly taught me what it meant to be a friend always making out time to call me, even when
you were going through so much. I can remember when I first found out about your diagnosis, I was so worried, going to the
hospital with you in Atlanta was especially hard, but because of your positive attitude and bravery I assured myself that everything
was going to be ok. Throughout the time I spent with you, your faith never wavered. You were so close to God, always
praying. Betty dear as I write this tribute I'm so overwhelmed with emotions. I just want to say, thank you for always being
there for me. Thank you for being the best friend anyone could ever wish for.
'I was not ready to say goodbye
Your disease just over took
So on this day we remember you
I take a second look
Our friendship is forever
Until death, did we part
Although your away physically
You're always in my heart'
Rest on my dear friend, till we meet to part no more"
