Its two months too soon after you passed on
Surely you have found favour in the LORD and you are resting peacefully in HIM. HIS love, blessing, mercy and grace will continually be your portion.

"My dearest sister, can't accept the fact that I have to write this for you, since I got this news, the shock of this sad news have left me terribly ill
What do I say? You were not just my Neighbor, but a daughter, a sister, a friend and a sincere Confidant.
You were a Great Woman of faith whose faith in God drew so many people that came in contact with you to God.
It goes to confirm that we are indeed " pilgrims in this world, Heaven is our home.
I am consoled with the fact that you are indeed with your maker.
You lived an enviable life though short but well spent as you touched a lot of lives, it goes to say that " it's not how long but how well"
How do I face Emeka your ever Loving husband? Only God can console him because I know the kind of love that you both shared.
Justina, physically we might not see you, but Forever you will remain in our Hearts for the death of a saint is not loss but gain in Christ.
Continue to rest in the bosom of your maker."

"The song is ended, but the melody lingers on...
Irving Berlin

To those of us who had the opportunity of knowing Justina Asuzu, her passing still remains a nightmare. An apostle of peace, a hardworking and caring lady, and a bundle of humility. These are  few exceptional qualities for which though she is no more today, but will still linger at the mention of her name. As we pray to God to grant her soul eternal rest, it is also our prayer that God in His infinite mercy will take care of the beloved ones she left behind. Adieu Justina!"

"Time permits when God grants grace in our lives, You presence was ordained and your absence has fulfilled God's promise. Your light will forever shine lead and guide those you left behind."

This tribute was added by Kelechi Nwaobasi on 26th February 2015

"It is so hard to believe that this wonderfuful union has been separated by death. I don't even know how Emeka plans to cope with this loss.
Justina was a good woman and she loved her husband. Emeka loved her too, but with a passion. That l can clearly deduce from my interactions and meeting with the couple.
Anytime a picture of a very blissful marriage comes to my mind, all l see were the images of Emeka and Justina and that inspires my marriage to a large extent. Silently, l always looked up to them to build my marriage to perfection.
Your departmenare from this temporal abode is too sudden but we can't question the Lord. Even though you're gone, you will always be in our heart and memories.
May you continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord and may our dear Lord send His angels to comfort the good husband you left behind. I know you'll be in heaven with the angels to watch over my good friend and to find a way to fill this void.
Adieu Justina.
May God be with youv till we meet again."

"TRIBUTE TO LATE MRS. JUSTINA ASUZU (NEE OKAFOR) BY HER SISTER UJU OKOYE.


My sister, best friend and Guardian angel
A sister’s love is something I was blessed to have and a sisters bond is so strong, that not even in death can it be broken,
Ijeoma  nwannem, it feels like years but it has been days and yet that is still too long, I wish is a dream that I will wake up from , I still love you the same as if you were still here with us laughing during the good times and crying during the bad ones,
You have been a good sister, friend and source of motivation to me, my whole world came crashing down when I got the new of your death, all I asked was God why and later I got the answer that he is the God that does whatever he want and that answer made me to understand why God would want such a beautiful angel on his side from now until eternity. We love you but God love you most, that’s why he took you away from this wicked world for you to be with him.
Ijee, we will miss you, I want you to know that you will never be forgotten, you were and will always be the wind beneath my wings
REST IN PERFECT PEACE AMEN!!!"

"A TRIBUTE TO LATE MRS. JUSTINA ASUZU (NEE OKAFOR) BY HER CLASSMATES (FST CLASS OF 2000, FUTO)

It is HARD to accept your death especially when we didn’t have the chance to get together, say goodbye; and you were taken away so suddenly and so shockingly at the prime of your life. Often, we all think we would have forever to catch up with one another but sadly once again, we are bitterly reminded that you have started your own forever now. You, Justie (as we all fondly called you in FUTO), are finally in a place where absolutely nothing can cause you harm. For this, our hearts must choose to go on.
As our classmate, you were a symbol of hard work that pays off. You put your feet down to answer to difficult questions. You freely shared the knowledge you had with us all while maintaining your cutting-edge competitive spirit to succeed. All of these and more you did with balanced acts of kindness, care and intellect.
We would not hold you back from eternal praise processions with our constant sorrows. We are going to do just what you would want us to do, get back together as a class and be there for each other. What social media couldn’t do for FST class of 2000, you Justie did even in death. You are truly a great force to reckon with. We thank God for the gift even for the brevity of time. We will carry your memories with us and our hearts must choose to go on.
Adieu Justie, our dear classmate and friend! We are confident you are in perfect peace.
FST CLASS OF 2000, FUTO."

"Justina, you were my senior both in Secondary school and in FUTO and that was enough for me to know the goodness in you. You always spoke wisely.  As early as Secondary school,  your advice was so mathre and sisterly.  I am sure your family, colleagues and closest friends will miss a huge support system. I pray that God gives ur dear husband and family the grace they need at this time. Sleep on my senor mate in God's peaceful bosom."

"Fondly called ‘Justii’ by her classmates, she was the best in chemistry and this feat earned her the nick -name ---‘ Just- 1- ene’. 

Justii was loving to be with, kind to all, selfless in her approach to life, inspiring personality, diligent to her duties and above all God fearing.
I cannot name it all. She was a lady you can be proud of any time, an inspiration to most of us while in school. To me she was a good friend, classmate and loving sister wrapped in one

The bible tell us that precious in the sight of the lord is the death of his saints.
Though we will cry but let us not cry like people without faith.

At times God picks the flower that is still in full bloom, the rosebud's chosen, we mortals can feel our classmate is picked too soon but we cannot question God. 
Sometimes the flower is fading with petals floating down, but God knows the perfect time to gather flowers from the ground. Our heart is sore pained within us and the terrors of death are fallen upon us,

However we all know there is a heavenly garden in which God takes great pleasure because he placed within it the loved ones that we treasure here on earth. There he walks among the blossoms giving them eternal rest and i know it pleases God for a day like this hence he chose our very best – Justii to come to that garden.

The bible tells us that where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. In her short period on earth justii demonstrated those qualities and attributes that will always resonate in the hearts of people that came across her.

Though justii is dead but she is living in the hearts of so many people and surely shall live again.
 
Rest in perfect peace. Justii."

"To have learned of your transition to glory was devastating to me. It brought a strings of sadness and I have struggled to let light shine through this darkness because that's what you would want. Moreover, that is what the Almighty God would demand of me.
Justy, you are a great force to reckon with. As your classmates in FUTO ,your determination to succeed and solve problems was an inspiration to us. For everything you did ,you were excellent.

To Emeka ,your families and everyone who shares in this sorrow, may the Lord comfort us all.

""Fear not death for the sooner we die, the longer we shall be immortal" --Benjamin Franklin....Ijeoma lives on. Martin Luther King, Jr made us understand that what is important in one's life is not the longevity but the quality....Ijeoma lived a life of testimony. She found her purpose in life and gave her whole heart and soul to it....no wonder she used to say "Heaven is possible". I knew Justina 20 years ago when we got admission in FUTO to study the same course, she was know in class as Justina but I chose to call her Ijeoma because she was very humane. Ijeoma was a lady who knew that you will never find a rainbow if you are looking down, a lady who believed that a day without laughter was a wasted day, a lady who inspires good actions in others, one who believed that the roots of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet (we call her Justie the "Jacobian" in school -- one who reads too much). Ijeoma was a lady who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way, she was one who diligently managed her thoughts, temper and tongue, she believed in the proposition of Henry James that "three things in human life are important; the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind and the third is to be kind". She has the mentality that no one ever become poor by giving.... that's why she gives without looking back. She also had so much belief in Benjamin Disraeli's statement that "the secret of success is constancy of purpose". when she got married, she was very married to her beloved husband Emeka. Asuzu, she do tell me she thank God for the kind of supportive husband God gave her. Ijeoma, I don't know how to reconcile this heavenly call up, but I know God called you for a purpose especially at the period he knew you were at your peak of grace. I pray Almighty God should give my friend Emeka the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.we are sure you are resting in the bossom of the Lord. Adieu Ijeoma, until we meet to part no more. Fondly remembered by Ibe Chidiuto"
