"Princess, the realities of your demise became more hurtful yesterday when I realised that it is one long year since you were gone.Severally , I find myself living in denial, thinking I can see you one day either at home, Church, office, in the traffic. I have trailed someone that I was convinced was you only to discover with disappointment that she was not you. Often Agbo and I remember you and then tears and emotional trauma take better part of us. We now console ourselves with the fond memories of you, Nnanna, Chikamele and Sinachi. I truly miss you, great woman of faith, my hero, my sister and my Princess. We love you but God loves you better. I can only say, continue to rest in the bossom od God and good night my dear sister."

"Chigo. You are remembered for the life you have touched with your warm temperament. You are always smiling and you cannot even fake to be annoyed as the smiles will give you away instantly. The children you helped trained (Zainab and Habeeb)  are now university graduates and will not tell their stories without mentioning you with sweetest memories. May the God Almighty continue to keep you in His bosom for an everlasting rest. You came , you saw and you conquer. God is already taking care of your children and husband and they will know no sorrows anymore. Amen . Fondly remembered by Fatai,Bukky, Zainee and Beeb boy"

"Your Love Will Be Passed On

Will it help if you know
You are with Nnanna, every day,
Who feels you with every breath,
Your thought never leaves him,
With every decision he make.

Will it help if you know
You are with Sinachi and Le’Anya everyday
Who feel your hands, your touch, your smile,
Who hear your voice every day,
Who saves your place on the couch, by their side, their hearts.

Will it help if you know
Your thought never will leave them,
All the love you shared with them,
All the tears and pain you made go away,

Will it help if you know
You are with Sinachi and Le’Anya, everyday,
Who will grow up to be just like you,
Who will tell their children wonderful things about you,
Whose children and their children,
Will put your name on trees at Christmas

Will it help if you know
In your time together,
All the memories you left,
Will last in their hearts,
Treasured memories they never forgot.

Although you have left,
Now you walk above,
You are always with Nnanna, Sinachi and Le’Anya,
Surrounded always by your love.

Now you don't have to worry,
For your love will be passed on,
Cause even though you left them,
You are Always in their Hearts.

Oma.

"Iyoo, it's exactly one year that you left this plane of existence. It's been the most difficult period of my life. The children and I have clung on and marched on as you would have wanted us to.

We have an event yesterday in your memory. You remain a tower of strength. I still shed tears and your absence aches. I miss you so much still. As if you left just yesterday.

Princess, I love you and always will.

Continue to sleep in peace, my love."

"Iyoo, at times I am just completely lack the words to express how I truly feel and how it has been this past 11months without you.

I laugh and play, struggle through every day (taking it so -- a day at a time), throwing my mind to other things. Yet, at the end of it all, you invade and every memories come flooding back. Some cause me to smile, some cause instant tears. At times I wonder what good memories serve, when the person you share them with is gone, never to be seen again. The ache is physical, can't stop!

My tears are not signs of weakness, far from it, for you taught me how to be strong in the midst of great pain. They are my eternal tribute to you, for loving me, in spite of myself and all my warts!

I love you, my Princess.

And I forever pray that your Soul and the Souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, Rest In Peace. And may perpetual Light shine upon you."

"Princess, it's 10 months now without you. God has given me the strength to take each day at a time.

Iyoo, continue to rest with the Lord in your immaculate well deserved garment. You remain my one true love and my source of strength.

I love you with my heart and Soul. Now and always."

"Princess, we are back to Nigeria. The children say they had fun. My biggest fun was being with them. Seeing them laugh and smile, getting to know them like never before. And them also getting to see him the way they hadn't seen me before."

"Princess, I try to do things with the children as you would have done. We are in London now. Am trying my best to give them as much fun as they would have had if you were here with us.

But for me the memories are still here at every turn. Moreso our last visit here as a family. The tears follow. The void is so much. It gets so overwhelming. But I know you would have put the children first."

"Princess, this time last year you cooked and brought the food and drinks to my office to mark my birthday. You hosted all the staff and thanked them for all the support they had giving to me over the years and moreso in the last 4 years during which we battled with your health. Looking back now and playing back the things you said, it was as if you knew you would be around for this
year's.

Princess, my heart still bleeds. My tears still fall freely and at to drop of a hat. No day is complete without you.

I love you deeply and dearly, my Princess."

"Iyoo, the last time we were in London, it was the whole family. Though you were unwell, it was non the less such a joy that we were complete as a family. Now we are here without you, and again the stark reality hits us all.

The children and I love and miss you so much. How we wish you were here."

"Iyoo, Sinachi woke up this morning and said she wasn't having breakfast. When i asked her why, she reluctantly told me that she was fasting.

"Fasting for Mummy to be well in Heaven". I assured her that you are indeed well and in Heaven.

I know you are, my love."

"Iyoo, it's been a cold lonely road to walk this past 7months. I keep struggling to be strong because that is what you would have wanted, at least for the sake of the children.

I take solace in the fact that you are in a better place. A pain free place. Intercede for us, Iyoo.

I will love you till the end of time."

This tribute was added by nnanna okorie-agwu on 6th May 2016

"It's exactly six months that you left the children and I on this side of this cold and lonely world. You left without fear, rather with the confidence of the person who is sure of the destination. We draw strength from that, but still we find the tears flowing un-controllably when we least expect it. We have been admonished to take heart and move on, how I wish it were that easy. How I wish the ache would stop.

Princess, there is no doubt that you are in a much better place now. Where you are now, you feel no pain. You take breathes with ease. Strong smells don't send you into a 30 minutes bout of coughing. You can run up the stairs and don't have to wait for me to carry you up on my back. You can take a bath at will, with no assistance. You are not attached to any machine, whose noise can even keep you awake. You don't have to scold anyone for having a look of pity on their face when they visit. You can wear any of your array of perfumes and not choke.

Yes, you are indeed in a much better place. You earned that place. You loved even those that hurt you, you forgave with ease those that even stabbed you in the back continuously. You preached peace when others went to the trenches. Were you perfect? Of course not! But like a true Saint, you understood the heart of God and always managed to stay in the right.

I do wish I could listen to my own counsel. But that's so much easier said than done. The ache is as that night. Yet, I live in the hope that is will dull.

The children and I love you. We are missing you. So much, as we struggle to adjust and accept our present circumstances.  We will always love and miss you.

We pray that your sweet Soul will, through the mercy of God, continue to rest in peace.

Iyoo, we will meet again in that world beyond death!

I love you! Unabashedly! Unashamedly!! Unreservedly!!!

Sleep on, Princess."

"I really don't know how to start ,but I know I became very strong when I met you mum, you took me as your son,encourage me and always make me know life was not a bed of roses,you sow alot of good words into my life,you even made my mum make jest of me by saying your second mother is here ,with you my financial complains were all gone and I learnt to be prudent during school day. Remember my years of job search in Nigeria you were a strong  force behind me,remember days I come to the house down casted ,I  always leave smiling .Mum you have a word for every situation . I can go on and go .
I'll always remember what a special person you were to my family. Even though you were not here ,we still think of you in all that we  do and will always remember the love you shared with all you knew and how you touched the heart of everyone around you. We love you .Love,
Olusegun,Opeyemi,Moyinoluwa and Ilerioluwa"

"You taught us how to be strong even at our weakest! How to truly forgive. How to trust in God. The power of prayers. How to be human. May these lessons NEVER depart from us.

Rest with Christ, now and alway, my one true love."

"Iyoo, its hard to believe that it's 5 months already since you left me without even a farewell. You asked me to pray for you and to say the Memorarie. I didn't in my wildest dream think that those would be your last words. Even when the oxymeter failed to record any pulse, I still didn't get it! I strongly believed that we would pull through. We had pull through what appeared to be worse crisis. You didn't panic and i was so sure God would see us through as always. Then as it dawned on me that you were going, you took you last breath. My world shattered. My tears flowed unabated. I couldnt think of how to tell the children that you wouldnt be coming home. I too died that night.

Princess, the children and I have been caught in a time warp since that night. The numbness is frightening. Not ever seeing you again or hearing that ringing laughter is hard to come to terms with.

We love you more than words can ever express.  

Sleep on, Princess, Queen of our hearts."

"Princess, you were the best friend and the best wife any man could ever have. And the best mother any children can ever have.

You know the children have banned non nuclear family members from sitting on your seat. Sinachi has a note over the chair, warning everyone to keep off her mother's chair."

"Iyoo, it's exactly 20 weeks to minute that you passed on to glory. I do wish I could have even a moment with you. There's so much to share with you and to seek your advice on.

I took Leanya to the barbers today, as they were barbing his hair, I was just staring at him and seeing all what he took from you.

I thought I was strong, but now I know that you were my strength. I love you more than words can say. Don't mind the tears, please.

I love you so much."

"Mum, we met and formed a strong bond. You were my sister, mother, confidant and more. Loosing you was a big blow for me cos it happened when I needed you most but God knows best. My heart's still aches and only God can help the wound of your loose. Love you always and hope to meet you again in the after life."

Without emotions, lovers ripped apart. One, cold and immobile. The other, completely bewildered and broken. Completely broken."

"You were strongest
at your weakest.
You made pain
a worthy and sweet smelling sacrifice.
Where others shook and shivered
You knelt as a giant.
Death hesitated at your feet
And we are better for having known you!"

"Iyoo, the tears still flow. The ache, still there. My love for you, undying."
