"I thank God for giving me the opportunity to know you. You were a devoted mother and always there for your children, no matter what. I vividly remember our last talk on the phone in January, 2015 when you were so excited to hear my voice. As technology has their way of letting one know that "unless I give you access, you won't get through," we could only talk for few minutes before the line went dead. I made one more attempt, the same happened and then I decided to call back in a week's time which never happened, as I was hit with the news of you passing away to the Lord. I wish one is clairvoyant, I would have continued to try to make attempts to reach you on the phone same day. Adieus, you will be missed. As much as your presence will be missed, you have been released from the heaviness of life and pain to heaven where there will be no more pain. Greetings to Rebecca and tell her I miss her.

"Mommy,
When I saw your face on the web, Becky comes up. We are not mourning your departure but celebrating your long and well spent life. Guess what, in that very harsh environment called Nigeria, 85 years is a very difficult milestone to reach. I know that not many people get there., but you gracefully did.
Farewell and rest in peace.

"FAREWELL TO OUR INDOMITABLE AMAZON !!!
Mama Ego,
I am curious about this thing called death !!! I know that you are not dead but have  made a pleasant and joyful transition to a better place. I know in my heart that the new peaceful abode elicited  a quiet smile and a sense of fulfillment from you.
You knew the time had come. As you had fought the fight with all your might , you peacefully passed on . There was indeed nothing left but to pick up your crown of glory.
Mama , please send my warmest greetings to Ego. We are still inextricably tied as we would all make that transition some day and fervently pray that the crowns will also be ours.
Mama, we miss you dearly. I cling to our amazing conversation on the eve of your departure. I am also happy that though Ego was gone , your incredible daughter , Cecilia, your baby  , Blessing and the rest of your family , grand children and great grand children inclusive, kept the touch of care, warmth & love for you ,alive like fire.

"The love of my great grandma is unique. God must have given great grandma to us to liven up our lives, to make our lives more complete, to make us well rounded and better human beings. I can remember the gist we had together, the little time we spent together, how you always ask me about school and how you always gives me encouraging words. You taught me a lot about how to work hard and be a man. Nwa the girl, you are not just ‘my great grandmother’, but my guardian, my friend and my inspiration. Still, can't believe you are gone. We will miss you great Grandma. You're truly a special woman. You may have passed on, but your memories would always live on within us. Thank you for your love and care great grandma. I will be forever grateful and thankful that you are my ‘great grandmother’.

Rest in Peace Great Grandma (Nwa The Girl)...we will never forget you and we will always love you forever"

"Just like the speed of light, you zapped to great oblivion without a chance to say goodbye.
Great Granny a.k.a. De Girl. You were given this sobriquet not only because of your elegance but also because of the youthful energy you exhibited even at old age. De Girl, you were one of a kind; one of such that put God and family first over anything. A God fearing woman and strong believer of the bible quotation "spare the rod and spoil the child". This helped you to bring up children that are your carbon copy in character and reasoning.
I hardly visited (because of school activities) but when i did, was overwhelmed with the open arms and smiling face you welcomed me with, and the kind of hospitality i enjoyed.
De Girl was so skilled in the kitchen that when she cooked the regular, it tasted extraordinary (superb).
De Girl, i know the little accident that fractured your leg, ate deep into you; due to you were not the type that liked staying at a place without doing anything. you were hard working and neat till death.
De Girl, if i hadn't learnt anything from you, i learnt to put God and family first and also that laziness is not an option even at old age.
De Girl, we are not going to cry for you like people without hope, because we know on the resurrection morning, we shall meet to part no more. Adieu Great Granny! Adieu Mrs. Pauline!! Adieu De Girl!!! Je nke oma. We love and miss you so much."

"Mama, grandma, nwa de girl, there is no second that passed by without my thinking of you, your usefulness to our family.... Cecilia Ezeonu's family, your first child/daughter. I was very small when we lost our Dad that I thought we were celebrating Christmas as the condolence was going on, but you stood strongly by my Mum and all her children. We lived with you growing up especially for one year Mum mourned my Dad, at all time you never allowed us suffer in any form You fought like a lion to ensure that we were not humiliated by any person,shape or form. That was why I told you while on your sick bedhumiliated ( when you said you don't want to suffer me) that it gives me joy to take care of you,  be with you especially at this period, and that there is nothing I can't  do for you that will be compared with the sufferings you underwent because of us. Mama, I am glad I took care of you. My love as I pour down the thoughts in my heart, I begin to feel bad again. It's 12:48am Nigerian time, Your thought woke me up. I love and will forever miss you. Nevertheless, I give God all the glory for a faithful life you lived. Sleep on with the Lord Grandma."

"Our Hearts are broken as we celebrate your home going. Mama we love you so much but God love you best. You did your assignment. I know the angels are rejoicing and you Father in heaven is pleased to say Well done my good and faithful servant.
Mama you have left a vacuum in our hearts that no one can ever fill. We will miss you so dearly. But the good news is we know where you are going and on THAT DAY we shall all re-unite. There will be great joy and celebration.
Mama farewell. I know you don't want us to cry because you are in a better place, but no one is here to take that name of yours "Mama".
May your soul rest in perfect peace until we meet again in paradise.
Alice Abah and family."

How will I say adieu when I strongly believe that you are still around spiritually by us.  I know you have made it to heaven.  Sleep on Nne di Nma. Nne Ora, Nne obi oma, Nnenne bu nwannem till we meet to part no more."

A precious one from us has gone.
A voice we love is still.
A place is vacant in our hearts
which no one else can fill.
After our lonely heartaches
and our silent tears,
We will always have beautiful memories
of the one we loved so dear.
Servant of God, well done!
Rest from thy love employ.
The battle is fought, the victory won.
Enter thy Master’s joy

"Mama a.k.a 'the Girl' was a positive force to be reckoned with. Barely 5'feet tall, she was 'small but mighty'. Even in old age, the few times I and my younger sister went home to visit, mama would go into the kitchen and make us this mouth watering porriage yam and dry fish with good ol' firewood... she was very active with life and church and even her not-so-recent leg  injury didn't stop her from living life to the fullest.  Mama was a strong woman, who loved God and always had a kind word to render regardless of arising situations.
She lived a good life indeed....and we'll miss you..
Adieu Nne'oma. REST IN PERFECT PEACE.
