""Mama… It hurts me deeply to know that you are gone and I did not get the opportunity to spend time with you in person, kiss you or hug you… technology is great but nothing beats doing these in person. I get tearful just knowing that I did not and will not get the opportunity to do it and it breaks my heart. When I got the sad news I was inconsolable.

I was very angry and upset when I got the message to release you because I wanted to see you again, to touch you, hold you, kiss you and I said I was not going to do it… but God doesn’t wait for man when His time is set… It wasn’t up to me and you’re now gone!

However, I thank God that I did get to spend time with you, to get to know you, to Love you and feel loved by you! I have wonderful memories of you that cause me to smile… Our communication always needed an interpreter but at least we could say ‘How u dey’; ‘I Love u’ and understand each other J!

The bond between us was very strong. It was you who brought me into Nigeria at 2 months from the UK. You and grand dad of blessed memory cared for me, nurtured me and loved me…. I’m sure that’s why I was so ‘plump’ at the age of 1 J! When it was time to move with my parents to India, I wept uncontrollably because I was going to miss both of you. You and grand dad gave me the name 'Nama me' because I loved meat so much (and still do!). I remember spending school holidays with you and you would buy me a large container of meat pie that was just for me (which I was happy not to share) and lots of good home cooking! I thank you for your love and for your large heart. I will miss you dearly… till we meet again!

Mama… Dein na mu xxxxxxxxxx

"Dein na mu Mama,

I hoped and prayed for you to wait till I could bring my family to see you by Christmas but God knows best. When I kept seeing you on my latest son's face I began to fear the worst.

You were a matriarch in all respects and passionately so. I look back and what i remember most are the times you boldly stood up for us when anyone tried to be funny or sought to harm us.

I loved you sincerely and know that your rest is truly well deserved.

Mama we will strive to be like you and hope we achieve what you planned for us.

Rest in perfect peace.

Oris."
