ForeverMissed
How does one express the amazing essence and spirit of Amarachi Isichei – her selfless generosity, uncompromising belief in all that is good and unwavering commitment to her work. Words, even the very best of words, cannot pay tribute or truly capture the sense of loss that we are all feeling today. The loss is there, tangible and real within everyone…but Amarachi exemplified life, love, laughter and an irrepressible belief in seeing the best in everything…even loss. And so today we honor her, by profoundly feeling and expressing our loss, but also by remembering Amarachi Isichei– an amazing person who has played a unique and special role in all of our lives.

Amarachi was a loyal colleague and a special friend. We’ll remember her and cherish our memories from all the days that we were privileged to share with her. And today we’ll grieve for her, and cry for her and even smile because of her… And in all our tomorrows we’ll feel her – gone in some ways, but her presence ever near.

Dear Amarachi, go well…stay well…always.

Amarachi Isichei was Head, Capital Market at AVA Capital Group. She had been a valued member of our team since February 3, 2020 and she will be sorely missed.

Amarachi!! Rest In Peace dear. We will miss you

This is hardest thing to do. I don't want to accept that you are gone Amara.
You were full of life, kind, generous and extremely brilliant. The way you looked out for me when no did, I will never forget in a hurry. I love you deeply and I know you are resting well beautiful. Till we meet again

Amarachi had an unmistakable presence that announced itself whether she wanted to or not.

Our first day as a class in EMBA22 had us attending an orientation session with one of the lessons being on speed reading. Guess whose hand shot up with the fastest reading speed? You guessed right - Amarachi. And that was how our dear friend and sister was announced  to the class as super smart, bold and unafraid to take on the world, albeit our own small world of EMBA22.

Amarachi quickly endeared herself to the class. It was always intriguing to watch her banter with Prof. Owolabi on the fine points of accounting during several of our Management Accounting sessions. If there was a case to solve or an assignment to turn in, Amarachi was always on top of it.

If you heard the phrase, "My full chest!" ring out in exclamation somewhere in the class during recess, it was most likely going to be Amarachi expressing her pleasant surprise or astonishment, nevermind that it was almost never about anything serious. Playful Amarachi, fun Amarachi, who always had a smile for everyone.She had this very elegant way of taking things in her stride.

Once, during a session of Management Communication, where participants were required to give a 3 minute pitch to investors, Amarachi froze mid-sentence, about half-way through, she had forgotten her lines! Everyone held their breath along with her, rooting for her ever so silently. But trust this Angel, after what seemed like a long time, Amarachi recovered herself, found her words and finished her pitch right on time. Rounds of applause rang out as she made her way to her seat. Phew! What a close call!

Even though Amarachi didn't stay with EMBA22 for more than one term, (she took out time to bring darling Sammie into the world), she had made her mark and she kept in touch with her original class. Our paths had become inextricably linked and we weren't letting go...until now.
It's so hard to say good bye. We only just met!

Our comfort lies in the memories we have shared and most especially in the legacy of good works and lives touched. Amarachi, rest in power! You remained fearless. You did take on the world, and you won.

You'll live in our hearts forever.

Your family at EMBA22

Dear Amarachi

I have thought about what to write and deleted a couple of times.
Your passing was a shock, a rude shock!
Amara I knew you for less than a year and in that time I saw a woman who was passionate, committed, selfless, vibrant and kindhearted.
I remember our gists on diets and all.
You were always so bubbly and full of life!
You never settled for less.
You were always ready to help and had a solution to everything!
You were a giver.
You won Amara
You Won.
May God comfort your husband, son and family.

Rest in perfect peace Amara
Till we meet again.

MY HEART IS ACHING, BUT HEAVEN IS ONE STAR BRIGHTER

How do I describe the most selfless person I know? How do I explain how multi-dimensional and amazing you were?

Like your name - Amarachi – you were full of grace

A great friend & sister. A sweet and direct person, actual not real, bold, driven, hardworking, logical and exceedingly honest because you cared.

A loyal friend and great listener.

A true boss, who killed it at work.

She was kindness, personified.

She was sunshine, pleasant warmth and fierce heat in dichotomous coexistence.

She’s the storm and the calm before and after it, this human hurricane.

She came carrying explosives, positive defiance and enough brilliance to replace the sun…

It was a privilege loving you – your light I will forever miss

I don’t think I’ll ever come to terms with this loss, I’m really heavy about it. This wasn’t the plan, sweetheart. I’m forever holding Sammy up to you.

Goodbye isn’t enough.
Posted by Yewande Senbore on February 16, 2021
Dear Amarachi,

This is such shocking and heartbreaking news! You were such a delightful personality and a thorough professional. We however take solace in God’s words, that you are sleeping in Christ. I pray for peace and consolation for your entire family and loved ones. Sleep well beloved... Goodnight Amarachi.

Our Emba 23 class was split into 2 because of the volume of students. You were in B and I in A

We used to have combined classes and every time we met you were always so cheery and merry. We would chat from time to time

I remember when you didn’t graduate with us, I reached out to you and same when you informed us of your husbands ailment in December .

We would send WhatsApp messages as that was preferred mode of conversations.

Your birthday came and I sent a private message wishing you well and expressing how good of a friend and a person you were. It was never read

We later heard of your passing on the Monday. The class hasn’t been the same since then. Many tell of tales and memories they shared and how wonderful you are

I choose also to celebrate you.
I pray the Lord will strengthen those you left behind

Rest in perfect peace dear friend

Amarachi, this is hard but I will try.

It was in April 2018 we met for the first time at our previous workplace. I still remember that day vividly. You had gone on Maternity Leave and was planning to return to work in a few weeks. You wore a pink dress, walked towards me and asked if I was Bolanle, without introducing yourself! We hit off immediately……like I had known you way before then.

We became very good colleagues, great friends then sisters. Together with Adanwimo, we were a fantastic trio! You were a sun at noon and a star at night. So full of life, energetic and hardcore. We talked about anything and everything – work related and otherwise. Interesting how we’ve been colleagues twice.

On the job, you were a “brainbox” and fantastic mentor to junior colleagues. On life issues, you were a “toolkit”. Your nickname for me was Superwoman! You were my “hype woman” and always made me feel like I could do anything. Impossibility was never a word you were acquainted with and as you would say times without number, “we move”.

Amarachi! our friendship was deep and special. Until death, did we part. I remember that devastating call about your demise and how my heart shattered to pieces. I look at your pictures and ask why it had to be you. I think of Sammie, your parents, husband, and siblings. I remember how you always kept me updated on issues, even until the very end; and I know you are in a better place now.

Although you are no longer here with us physically, you will always be in my heart with lots of amazing memories. As your name depicts, you had an uncommon grace.

Thank you Amarachi, for being a good friend and sister.

Adieu my darling! See you on the resurrection morning.

Bolanle Ekanim.

Amara! The star girl! Ambitious, focused, driven and a fantastic wife and mother. Who would have thought that I would be writing a tribute about you? Who?

Hmm... where do I start? 

Moments I shared with you while working together at Kedari Capital were all pleasant and fun. During office parties, you will shout Sis! Sis! Teach me how to dance nah, with a smile that warmed my heart.... and I end up laughing hysterically. I would yab you and you would laugh hard.

We became mothers and shared so many parenting secrets. We shared career plans and aspirations and you always cheered me on as I did you. We shared moments of joy and tears.

We last spoke in December 2020, and traded transactions and business ideas. We had goals set for first quarter of 2021.

Who would have thought that my very smart and focused Amara would be gone?

Life and it’s fickleness!

I can’t say goodbye but would say so long... rest well my darling star girl.

My LBS seat mate and partner in mischief during, can't believe you are gone.
A brilliant and intelligent mind, you had.
Care and time, you gave.
Challenges that came, you never let hold you back.
I will cherish every memory.
I pray God grants your family the strength to bear this.
My dear Amarachi, I bid you adieu ❤.
Posted by Mark Enwongulu on February 13, 2021
Amarachi, I definitely remember your fast reading skills during our first EMBA week @ LBS. You were an interesting and delightful personality. We will miss you, but God Almighty knows best. Rest in peace on the bosom of the lord.

Dear Amarachi,

It is absolutely sad and painful to know you are no longer here with us.

May your soul Rest In Peace.

Amara,

I still struggle to come to terms with the fact that the lively and energetic Amara is no more. You never settled for less and always pushed everyone around you to be, and to do, better.

I remember how we originated a key transaction together, the meetings, the proposals, and the presentations. So many questions - how? why? why not?... But again, He is unquestionable.

I pray for your eternal rest and pray that he grants your family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.

Rest on Amara
Posted by Ifeyinwa Adeniji on February 12, 2021
Dear Amara,

My time with you was short but very very memorable. You taught me how to think of myself and not just others. You said "baby girl, if you don't take care of yourself, no one will". I was only able to share one experience with you and you are no more, to some it might seem insignificant but not to you, you encouraged me to take baby steps, which I am currently doing but now who will I share my wins with and be encouraged to take further steps? The Bible says everything happens for a reason. Only God knows why you had to leave us. I pray that God will console the family you left behind and give them the fortitude to bear the loss.

Rest on Dear Ama.
Posted by Ololade Agboola on February 11, 2021
Amarachi, I really found it hard to do this, I am still in shock and still trying to come to terms with your departure. It took me almost 3 days after I learnt about your departure to write this because I hoped someone was going to tell me it wasn't true.

Working with you closely for almost 2 years, your voice keep echoing, I remember your words of encouragement, your tenacity, your can-do drive, how much you cared and always reiterated the need not to leave self-development out in the place of ensuring I deliver on my tasks at work. Your constant words "Lola, hope you are studying for your exams? how were your results?". Yes, and how much you believed in my ability; this spurred me to always do more.

In your words, ''Lola, I know we are working on this deal together but I want you to see it as you are working on it all alone, I need you to close it end-to-end". No doubt, this set me on my toes, I remember the last major transaction (the bond issuance) we worked on together before you/I left Eczellon, you made me know that I was capable of relating with people at various levels and I do not need to feel intimidated by anyone at any point. This really helped my professional network in the industry and yes of course, my current position.

Amarachi was the life of the office I could go on and on because there are lots of memories with you. It is so sad to lose you at this time, but he is indeed an unquestionable God. I wish you eternal rest and I pray that the Lord will grant your family the fortitude to bear the loss. Most of all, I pray that your son, Sammie attains heights/achievements that you always imagined for him and beyond. Goodbye Amarachi!!!Your memory lingers.
Posted by Blessing Ogbedo on February 11, 2021
Amarachi, please tell me it's all a lie. Telling you are just playing pranks with me.

I am in deep shock. My heart is broken. I still do not believe it. But who are we to question God? He alone knows best.

Heaven has won an angel. Continue to rest in peace sis, till we meet to part no more.

Posted by Komo Jo on February 11, 2021
Hmmm...my heart still hurts. It's hard to believe I'm doing a tribute in this way for you Amarachi. Well, we can't keep questioning God. You were a beautiful & lively soul full of inspiration. May perpetual light shine upon your soul through the divine mercy of our saviour Jesus Christ. And may God grant those you left behind the fortitude to bear your absence. You will always be remembered Amarachi.
Posted by Amara Ojefua on February 11, 2021
Namesake, as we called each other, my heart aches and tears pour down my eyes as I type this. Your exit hurts!! It’s too painful to express in words!! Mba nu!!

From when we met in 2015 while attending marriage classes in Illupeju, we have remained friends. Your intellectual prowess, calmness, outlook to life, drive and personality are simply exceptional. Onwu, i ruola ala!!

I’ve been hoping that the news of your passing was some huge mixup but...

I will always cherish The memory of my last visit to you in April 2018 just before leaving Lagos. Amy, you mean I will never hear your sweet voice again? You mean I will never see you again? Not on WhatsApp, not on LinkedIn Unbelievable!!

At the end of one of our WhatsApp chats, you told me “o ga adili gi nma”, Namesake today I know that o ga adili gi nma at our Lord’s feet.

Indeed heaven has gained a beautiful soul and we have lost a rare gem!
Posted by Abiola Sofowora on February 11, 2021
Beloved Amarachi,
Honestly words fail me at your passing away. I was shocked to hear the news and I am still in shock and find it hard to believe I would never see you again.

You were part of us in group 4 EMBA 23 and you gave your best throughout our MBA program at the Lagos Business School during group assignments, presentations despite your busy schedules.

It was so unfortunate I couldn't attend the mini party you invited me to last year as I was heavily pregnant then. I knew how you prayed for me when I told you I was expecting a baby.

You were kind, nice, fun to be with. Your sweet words were always Abi darling, dearie, kisses to my girls etc.

It was a privilege knowing you dear and this I will hold for a life time.
Sleep well beloved sister, though this is still hard to say. Till we meet again at the lord's feet.
Posted by Odini Oriseh on February 11, 2021
Amarachi I cannot find the words to describe how your passing has hit me. The last thing I said to you was to stay safe, but who am I to question God that put us on this earth. I am still teary typing this and that's how I know that it hurts. I'm glad you hosted us at your house, little did we know that it was going to be a memory we would cherish in the nearest future. Amarachi you will be missed o! Damn!!

Rest on girl... Rest on!

It still looks like I am dreaming because I have not come to terms with what is being said. My last daughter was born on 5th February, 2019 while we were still in LBS and everyday we see, the first thing you ask is "How is Chinenye?" On 5th February, I sent you birthday messages but never saw any response. Unknown to me that you were in agony. My head fills with Amarachi each time I see my daughter now. God knows the best Amarachi

Rest on till we meet to part no more.
Posted by Bolatito Olujobi on February 11, 2021
Amarachi.....

I still pinch myself since I heard the news of your passing. I'm sincerely hoping this isn’t true.

I remember meeting you in 2015 when I just got employed as an intern in your team. You specially took out time to teach and mentor me.

I remember all your advise and tips regarding all I’ll need as an investment banker.

I remember my first presentation, you and the team were on my case and ensured that I tied all loose ends. Afterwards, I could see the pride on your face while presenting and you secretly gave me a thumbs up.

I remember the not so good days at the office, you will call me aside and encourage me. Words of encouragement like “you’re doing a good job”, “I’m proud of you”, “keep it up”, “you’ll do well”, came so naturally with you.

Many sweet memories of you Amarachi! You were not just a colleague, but you were like a big sister to me. I’m still trying to understand why but we can’t question God. He has all the answers and knows why this has happened.

I pray that God comforts your family and you find rest and peace at the bosom of our Lord.

Rest well dear Amarachi.

Amarachi, Dipo Wintoki sent this tribute to me via WhatsApp and asked me to post this on his behalf. As you already know, he is devastated............so here it is:

Tributes are for those gone; and not for you Amarachi but I’ll say to you:

The worst is over, the heavens have opened; Negotiating with the Master of the Universe, a price paid albeit priceless in its entirety

Neither the B’s or Q’s could save you from the monsters within nor from the Fowler’s snare

I sought answers within the galaxy, I asked of the stories untold. Was I wrong?

Return to corporeal, the white lights flirt in complexion and intensity - are you still my friend or a ghost in the dark? the viscous circle of congeniality and congé unanswered

Heaven is not hard to find for the soul perfectly made, that with a heart a gold, delectable personae and infectious charisma, by name we called you Senior Ugonwa

Glorious is His doing, yes; still I rise but continually wallow in the emptiness of your temporal depart, a black hole without remedy

To live another hour, is to live again, to achieve immortality is to live in Him

Till we ride the chariot in the morning; your existence remains like a sweet smelling essence that offers solace in peradventure eternal.

Amarachi,

I have avoided this until now. To me, it seems final. I do not want to say goodbye. I remember our first conversation, I hated your guts but then I got to know you a little better and we became friends.

Strong willed, smart Amarachi! its surreal that I am saying goodbye.

Rest well dear friend.

Dear Amara,

I’m still numb from the news of your passing. Still processing, still wondering “is it true?” I can’t imagine how your family is coping with losing you. This is such a shock!

I remember when I met you more than 10 years ago in Ilupeju...you were instantly magnetic, charming, graceful and full of joy! Smart, witty, full of life, with that unmistakable glint in that eye! You were a strong, ambitious yet deeply caring person.

It was a pleasure to know you and call you friend! Even though we did not see much over the passing years, we both knew we could always reach out to each other for help anytime.

I really don’t understand why such a beautiful soul would leave us so soon!! I can only take comfort that though you may be lost to us here, you are at rest with the Father.

Rest on Amara....

Dear Senior Ugonwa, as I first knew you!
Your tenacity was it me, I'm sorry I never told you this to your face.
A cool senior in secondary school, a great former colleague. 
Thank you for making sure I enrolled at the gym for the first time ever.
You were full of life and I never would have thought it was close to being empty.
In the past few days, all I have seen in the abstract, is you cracking jokes and just laughing away.
It has been really difficult coming to terms with the news of your passing but we bow to God's sovereignty and I pray that the Lord will indeed comfort your family.
Rest well Amarachi Isichei

I lost my sister-friend Amarachi and my mind is still reeling from the shock of it all.
I remember our intense and real conversations, your warmth doused with commonsense and mixed with fierce love.
You were so passionate about your dreams, aspirations and convictions.
One of the very few people I could be real and vulnerable with. Always encouraging me in spite of all odds to fight for my dreams.
We had our ups and downs but in spite of it all, our friendship came out stronger.
So many dreams we had, prayers shared, victories celebrated and milestones still ahead.
This is too heavy to bear.
My heart bleeds.
Goodnight Amarachi.

I was heartbroken when I heard this news. Amarachi would always come through for you with empathy and sincere compassion. I still can’t believe this!

Amarachi will forever be in our hearts!

Hi Amarachi,

It's really hard to admit that you won't stand close to my desk again to ask about our masks and proudly say you don't have flats.

I remember the first day I meet you, it was at January MPR. The scene was funny, because you entered slightly late with your tight dress and heels and you slipped as you sat down on the chair. You quickly complained about not getting mails and that you think your email was sabotaged. You spoke against your metrics measurement easily at the tension-filled MPR, defiling the norm. I was already loving you at this point.

You are annoyingly sweet. The day I heard you cried, I saw your humane side and felt your sweetness and softness. You are loved and will be greatly missed.

Dearest Amarachi, news of your passing came as a rude shock.

We met physically only twice, but could pass as long time friends as we often spoke over the phone. You were indeed a jolly good fellow, always warm, easy to communicate with and always willing to be of assistance. Your passion for the job was second to none, you were indeed a goal getter and I always admired that about you.

You are gone but never to be forgotten. You would be sorely missed as a colleague and a friend. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

Amarachi had an unmistakable presence that announced itself whether she wanted to or not.

Our first day as a class in EMBA22 had us attending an orientation session with one of the lessons being on speed reading. Guess whose hand shot up with the fastest reading speed? You guessed right - Amarachi. And that was how our dear friend and sister was announced  to the class as super smart, bold and unafraid to take on the world, albeit our own small world of EMBA22.

Amarachi quickly endeared herself to the class. It was always intriguing to watch her banter with Prof. Owolabi on the fine points of accounting during several of our Management Accounting sessions. If there was a case to solve or an assignment to turn in, Amarachi was always on top of it.

If you heard the phrase, "My full chest!" ring out in exclamation somewhere in the class during recess, it was most likely going to be Amarachi expressing her pleasant surprise or astonishment, nevermind that it was almost never about anything serious. Playful Amarachi, fun Amarachi, who always had a smile for everyone.She had this very elegant way of taking things in her stride.

Once, during a session of Management Communication, where participants were required to give a 3 minute pitch to investors, Amarachi froze mid-sentence, about half-way through, she had forgotten her lines! Everyone held their breath along with her, rooting for her ever so silently. But trust this Angel, after what seemed like a long time, Amarachi recovered herself, found her words and finished her pitch right on time. Rounds of applause rang out as she made her way to her seat. Phew! What a close call!

Even though Amarachi didn't stay with EMBA22 for more than one term, (she took out time to bring darling Sammie into the world), she had made her mark and she kept in touch with her original class. Our paths had become inextricably linked and we weren't letting go...until now.
It's so hard to say good bye. We only just met!

Our comfort lies in the memories we have shared and most especially in the legacy of good works and lives touched. Amarachi, rest in power! You remained fearless. You did take on the world, and you won.

You'll live in our hearts forever.

Your family at EMBA22

Rest well Amara

Amara was always so kind and willing to help. She often gave me pointers on how to do my job better and she was always a great sport. 

I'll miss her ordering lunch with us and cracking bad jokes. I'll miss our light, breezy morning conversations. 

Rest well Amara.
