"Aunty Ejemeh...

So beautiful,
So radiant,
Forever young...
Oh how I reminisce on the beautiful tributes said of you by those you imparted;
Oh how I constantly try to put words together, in an attempt to describe how much of an amazing person you are;
Albeit the multitude of words at my disposal, I'd end up realizing that words fail me...
A personification of humility,
An embodiment of first-rate virtues;
365days gone by, and I have no doubt that for the rest of time, the memories of your uniqueness will resound for generations to come.

All is Well!!!"
