|Let mummy's memory be with us forever. Amen!|
"My Iyom. I miss now and always. Just thinking this morning about what you are doing right now in heaven. Probably praying for all your children (biological and non biological), your family and friends. Love you forever my mother."
"Dearest Mummy. I love you forever and miss you so much. Kachira just a couple of days ago as if she knew your birthday was coming burst into tears when she heard the hymn Amazing Grace. She misses you so much. Continue to rest in peace. Ezinne Iyom 1 of Ojoto."
"Happy 84th posthumous birthday Iyom Aku. Continue to rest in our Lords bossom."
"What can I say. For ever missed and in our hearts. Thanks for legacy you have left us. Continue to rest in God."
"Mummy dearest, today would have been your 83rd birthday. Remembering you like it was yesterday. Continue to rest in peace. Missing you. Love you forever. Nwando xxx"
Mother in four billion you have been on my mind lately. I miss you so much i do not even know how to explain it you were always there so i didn't notice but now you are gone the void is so huge i wonder how i never noticed a wise counsel here, encouragement and support at the right time these you freely gave.
Continue to rest mum we shall met again."
"It feels just like yesterday. You are forever in our hearts. Rest well. Till we meet again. xx
"Every so often I look at your pictures and play the last video we recorded in Apapa and I bless God that we spent that time together before you went to be with the Lord. Till we meet again your memory will continually be in my heart."
"We miss you but you live on in our minds and hearts.
Stay Well, Aunty V!"
"Mum, Its been a year and I still miss you more than ever. You will forever be in my memory and your voice will always be in my head, especially in my trying moments when it is loudest."
"I remember you today being your birthday as I have all my life, that your life gave me life and that your approach to life gave me inspiration. You will remain a part of me- in my heart and in my head. It is coincidental that I traveled to Ojoto on your birthday to look into the work going on where you rest eternally. So I was there with you on your birthday."
"My Iconic Aunty Iyom glows eternally. Forever missed as she is laid to rest this week. Childhood memories of you abound. One regret, I never brought my daughter Gifechukwu Elizabeth to Apapa as you wished, and as I promised. She'll grow to read the word of God from the white Christening Bible you bought her at baptism. Say hello to Dibuenyi, Pius, Lawrence, Christopher, Ikem, Betsy. CJO"
"Although our hearts are heavy with grief at your loss, we know we must surely celebrate your life here on earth and your new life up in heaven. For you fought and conquered, and went up with joy to meet your Lord, whom you had served so faithfully all of your life. Farewell my darling mummylicious! Till we meet again. Nwando"
"TRIBUTE TO AUNTY ‘V’ (IYOM)
WHEN I WAS PREGNANT WITH MY FIRST DAUGHTER, LIKE ANY SELF-RESPECTING IGBO WOMAN – I HAD A YEN (CRAVING) FOR ‘NGWO NGWO’ (SP) OR ‘ISI EWU’. KNOWING THIS, AUNTY' V' CAME DOWN FROM LAGOS ONE WEEKEND TO VISIT ME IN COTONOU WHERE I WAS WORKING, ARMED WITH ALL THE INGREDIENTS TO MAKE THIS DISH (INCLUDING A DEAD/FRESH GOAT HEAD) AND PROMPTLY PROCEEDED TO PREPARE THE MOST DELIC"
"Mum, I am thankful that my least words to you were: “I love you dearly; thank you for being the best mother anyone could ever ask for. You are free to go – we will pray for the best”. I kissed your forehead. I looked into your eyes and saw a tear drop. I will never forget the purity of the look you gave me. And that smile – seared in my soul forever. Okey"
