"Sister, it is about a year now and I can still feel the void that your sudden passing to eternity has created in my life. Thoughts and memories of you have not left me since you went to be with the Lord. The precious memories that we shared are still fresh in my heart and mind and I cherish them a lot. I still miss you every day and wish that you were still with us. But I know you are happy where you are, because in your life’s journey you passionately prepared yourself to be with the Lord and that is where you are. Though that day came as a shock to us, we are still grateful that God gave you to us and through you many came to accept Jesus as their Saviour. Now you have joined the cloud of witnesses that surround us (Hebrews 12:1); we shall also endeavour to run and complete the race set before us and finish well. I miss you so much my dear sister, confidant, adviser, prayer partner and friend. Continue to rest in perfect peace with the Lord.

Nnenne"

Rest on Mummy Peace......ur legacy is forever!"

"First the shock, then the tears, then the reality, now the seed has been commited to mother earth. How do i start to talk about my beloved aunty peace, she was my guardian since age 11, she received me into her house and has since then been a mother to me. I remember times when she took me into her bedroom and talked to me about Jesus. My christain walk today can be traced to the seeds she sowed in those early years.
Aunty Peace trully knew Jesus, she was very consistent in her faith, i have seen her go through all types of situations good and bad but what was constant was her firm belief in Jesus. I can still hear her soft sweet voice saying halleluyah. She trully has finished her work on earth but as humans we still hurt, we still cry. I cant even imagine the pain in the hearts of her children. Let us all be consoled that she is in better place.
She was trully a General in the Lords army. Even in her death many where turned to the Lord. I remember at the service of songs wishing that i could have even half of the testimony she had at the end of my own life. I am henceforth fully committed to the same Jesus who have allowed us all to see a life well lived through her.
Adieu aunty, till we meet at the feet of Jesus.You will forever live in our hearts."

"We were deeply shocked on hearing the news of your departure. You were a godly and a great woman, you have impacted our lives greatly from cradle to adulthood as you were a mother to everyone. Our only consolation is that you are presently resting at the bossom of the almighty. You have indeed fought the good fight of faith."

"It must well over 10 years now. Okokon looked at me in the eyes and, "I call her Mummy, but you call her Aunty Peace!" True. I can't remember exactly what it was we were talking about. A few years after, i remembered having a call right in the middle of work and I answered "Mummy!" Just then my boss who was was about to pass an instruction to me waited patiently with a smile until i finished my conversation with Mummy. He said, "..you know Newman, when you used that word 'mummy', it sounded a bit strange to me because, i never used it. My Mom passed away when I was a baby." He was a quite emotional. I shook my head and considered myself lucky. We call you MUMMY because you opened your home to us-countless of us- in Zaria. In Abuja, your home was our camp! You fed us, encouraged and prayed with us. You are a Star! God keep your sweet soul Mummy!!!"

God watch over your family."

"Sister, it still feels like a dream. I still keep hoping that I would wake up and discover that it was not true. One day I am talking to you and the next day you are no more. Words are insufficient to express how broken and sad we are about your sudden departure. You were not just a sister to me, in you I found a teacher, a mentor, a confidant, a friend, a pastor and most importantly a prayer partner. I still remember my last holiday at home; we ate together, drank, laughed, cried, slept, woke up, travelled, shopped, and most of all fasted and prayed together. You have taught me so much, but most importantly trust in God who is All Sufficient. I miss you and I know that the feeling will always remain. You will NEVER be forgotten. My consolation is that you are with the Lord, The One you loved and lived for. Have a good rest my sister in the bosom of your Father. One day we will meet at His feet and will never be separated again. I Love You and always will!"

"Aunty Peace, you were a big sister to me. You love and cared for me as though we shared the same blood. You passing unto eternal glory was a rude shock to say the least because you sent me a message on the evening of July 20th. You always remembered to call and ask how I was and most importantly u cared that I stayed strong in the Faith!
Tears flow yet My heart wells with joy knowing u are dancing with the saints in heaven. You are forever loved and missed.
Rest on aunty Peace!! Your legacy lives on......"

"Rest in perfect peace my dear sister-in-law, Pastor (Mrs.) Peace Nkoyo Odiongenyi. May God remember your faithful labor in His vineyard and welcome you into His eternal Kingdom. May the family you left behind find real peace in this world in Jesus name. Amen."

This tribute was added by Okokon Odiongenyi on 20th August 2015

"Mummy,

As this terrible shock slowly wears off, I console myself that you now rest with God, and you wouldn't wish to return, even if you could. I thank Him for the very good life you lived, and in your last years you were surrounded by the people you loved, doing His work.

Since you left, we've heard so many stories from these lives you touched:
"Your mother taught me the first bible verse I knew."
"Aunty Peace gave me my first pair of trousers."
"I learnt how to pray from her". ‎
You were a mother to us all. And your children are grateful - we appreciate you. We celebrate your work here on earth. I wish you stayed longer to see more of the fruit from the seeds you sowed. But I’m glad for the brilliant legacy you left.

Thank you for your absolute devotion to us. ‎Thank you so much for your patience, your love and your prayers...especially for your prayers! Thank you for blessing my new home; in my absence, you called Sarah and prayed for her the night before you left. Thank you for accepting her as Eno-Abasi, "God's gift" to us. She and I now commit to raising a family in the fear of the Lord, for which I know you'd be exceptionally proud.

Rest in Peace, Pastor Peace."

""There is a tide in the affairs of men.Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat,And we must take the current when it serves, Or lose our ventures"
Ours is a joyful yet sober reflection of the wonderful gift you were and will still be in our lives.

My mother (Afiong) would take time to eulogize each of the sisters and brothers to us, explaining how wonderful it was growing up with them and your stories of peacefulness and love touched us the most.
Some , it was humor (like how someone pronounced Knife as "K ni fe"   LoL), some reminded us of some traits we see in our lives, but yours certainly taught us just one great lesson --- Love and Kindness.

This is the greatest gift you gave to us all. We will continue to celebrate this gift everyday in remembrance of you. May the Good Lord who gave us the great gift of you grant you eternal and peaceful rest in His Kingdom. -- Amen."

"Where do I start from , 25 or so years ago ..... She was my teacher . She filled us with the passion we have for Chirst . She LOVED children not only was her house a fellowship venue it was our rallying point . You could see her eyes literally light up with joy when we were around her you could feel the energy in her . She could do anything literally anything to bring a child to knowledge of Christ . I still don't think I have outgrown her because every time you see her she would ask you the same question she 25 years ago , my goodness she was embodied energy. I didn't cry no I couldn't the shock wouldn't let I never told what I'm about to say now but I gotta say out loud " I Love her sooo much " she's a mother even she sleeps she still a mother ........ She will never be far from us"

"Sister Nkoyo, I lack words to express how much pain I have been feeling since July 21, 2015. I have no clue when it will end but right now, it is just by His grace that I (and am pretty sure the rest of our families) can go through each day, knowing that you are no longer with us.

You were a phenomenal individual. You stood in the gap for all of us, from an age when most of your contemporaries were more interested in having fun. You were like a mother to all of us, including your elder siblings and inlaws. You took me in when I had nowhere to go. Your house in A.B.U. Kongo Campus was my permanent home address for the longest time!

You were an unrivalled giver until your very last day on earth. I can never forget how you pulled out 'awak' (pumpkin seeds) that you had already planted in your Kongo Campus (Bashar Road) garden to give to a friend who also wanted to plant same! That's how selfless you were - ever giving but expecting very little from others.

I take consolation in the fact that the last time I saw you (during you son Koko's lovely wedding), you had never looked happier and more importantly, in the fact that you have found eternal peace. I had no clue that was the last time I would be seeing you, I would have hugged you tighter and longer; I would have taken endless pictures with you; I would have spent more time with you...

Sister, you will be missed and loved forever. I thank God for the privilege of being your sibling."

"Sister, accepting the fact that you are no more and will no longer be with us is hard. Althiugh we were not prepared for this tragedy we take solace in the conviction that you are in heaven with our Lord Jesus. Your memory will live in our hearts forever. We are all proud of you my beloved sister, you were a wonderful sister, friend, mother, grandma and a pastor.

You were a shoulder to cry on and gave great advice that lifted one's spirit. You put smiles on lots of faces daily. During your short time on earth, you touched so many lives. You were an epitome of Peace and tranquility, just as your name implies. Like a mighty army you moved the church of God from youth till your very last day on earth. You were the best sister any one could have asked for. My priceless jewel, my all and all, the pains, the fear and the fact that you have left us is too deep and will never go away. I cannot say goodbye because your memory is ever green in my heart.

Rest in the Lord till we meet to part no more my dearest sister.

Yokpo."

"It's hard to think that you are gone, but one thing for sure is that you are in a better place.  You loved us so much and though we did not have a chance to tell you goodbye, please know that we love you and even much more now.  May you find Peace in the Lord.  Amen."

"Sister Nkoyo: Words cannot fully express the devastating shock the news of your passing had on us. It was so sudden and till today, it still feels like one is having a bad dream and would soon wake up to reality. You left behind great memories that will last forever. You touched so many of us with your unconditional love and support. Your strong religious background and faith shaped how you lived your life as well as how you related with the people around you. You had purity of thought with strong uncompromising principles that we all appreciated. During your sojourn here, you definitely left a positive mark and built a strong family you can be proud of.  Sometimes life can be so unfair, but one consolation we have is that God has answers to all questions and mysteries. While we grieve over this irreplaceable loss, we owe you a duty to also celebrate the positive and rewarding life you lived. Adieu Sister and we know that the Good Lord whom you served diligently will surely grant you eternal Peace.
From your Brother: Koko"
