"Hello, it is incredible how time seems to have flown by. Edna, it is to me and many of our friends just like yesterday when we last saw each other, but a lass, the reality is that we have been left with a gaping hole  which only you could fill. You are greatly missed my sister. Your gift to us are your two beautiful and wonderful children. They are doing fine and growing up to be responsible..... Bella and "Paps" Akumbum have the support and love of family, but with you their guardian angel watching over them they shall continue to grow strong, with love and fear of God."

"Well Edna, many of us do not understand the meaning of life and that is why we mourn so much. This life of ours is Gods property. When you tie up your goat somewhere and you return to untie it to take it away, no one has that right to question. I am paraphrasing my father, Rev. Mundi, and your father would have said the same thing. Rest in peace and look kindly on your kids here."

"It is so true that death is like an inexperienced farmer, who when harvesting, makes no distinction between the ripe and the unripe fruits. Otherwise how can we explain the fact that you should be snatched by the cold hands of death when the family needs you most? But as Christians, we have no right to question God’s will and decision. We are sure he will keep you in his bosom till we meet to part"

Halleluyah, Amen!"

Through the hardest part of life
In my heart the memories clear
Of the greatest mum I love so dear
I held you so close to my heart
Praying that we'll never part
But angels came and took you away
And a tear I shed for your everyday
Now a shining lit up star
My mum will watch from up far
In all the pain I'm going through
Just remember, I'm here with you"

I know each ache of heart and brain,
Follow Me, come, follow Me.
For thee"

And Now, Why?"
