To Mmaam!
I have no words to express precisely how you impacted my life. Mmaa, as a child you taught me equity and respect. That avocado pear that is shared into 13 parts so that everyone will get a piece. Oh Mmaam, coming home to you in Ihioma was a joy, an adventure that you created for us, to teach us, challenge us, and enrich us. Then we would complain about the early morning trips to the stream down treacherous hills. Still, you encouraged us and celebrated us when we came back first with our 5-gallon jerrycan, then 10-gallon, then 25-gallon…Now, as an adult, I realize exactly what you were doing—training your children for life’s journey where the weight gets heavier as you go. You raised a generation of warriors, being the chief warrior yourself.
You taught me preparedness; my Mmaa was born ready, the yam was put in the ground at the right time, harvested at the right time, in the barn precisely on the day it should be. Nothing caught you unawares except the death of your loved ones. You would sit me down and paint pictures of my late father, O you adored him, and I learnt to reverence him through your stories, and I wished to be Nwa Felix that would make you proud (I think Uche won that award hahaha!)
Thank you for loving my mom (Mma Uche as you fondly called her) and always honouring her. Thank you for being one person that embraced her and supported her; for that and many more, I am forever indebted to you.
I love you, and I will hold up the lessons you taught me and the love you showered on me.
I carry a piece of you in my heart and I celebrate you. I hope to continue to teach my children, Kachiside and Chimamanda, all that you taught me and be a resourceful wife to Ikemefula by the grace of God.

Adieu Mama. Forever in my heart

Mama Augustina
It is well!
Writing a tribute to you in my mind is like I am foreseeing your passing because there is a part of me that is yet to accept that you are gone from this earth!
I am writing this with tears in my eyes, and I am not sure what to write. My journey as a wife in Offor family was made easier with you as an ally. You never wavered in your support or your love over the decades; come rain or shine. As a 28-year-old widow of Felix Offor, your advice and counsel made me feel that my late husband was still alive, and I could hear him in your words.
Mama, the English language does not have any words to describe my relationship with you, sister-in-law that chose the role of mother, aunty to my children but decided to be their paternal grandmother. You made those choices without hesitating, and you played those roles without expecting any compensation. Our children today are siblings because you refused to raise them as cousins. I listen to Uche and Augustine talk for hours about everything and anything, and I know it is a testament to how you raised all your "children," and it fills me with joy.
You kept my place in this family through thick and thin. You covered me and had my back no matter what. Mama Augustina, who do I turn to now? Oh, I will take solace in the gift of the memories we share from the day I walked into the family home in Ndida to our many celebrations as our children got married and we hosted our in-laws' side by side. I will never forget, and you will always have my loyalty and gratitude.
Rest in peace, my dear mother. I am truly an orphan now.

Dee Dee,
Mgbafo-udah, mama of the whole of Maduka's family. I remembered as a child the joy that filled the whole Maduka family whenever you arrived at your father's house. Children running round to greet you and your humility is nothing to compare. Always lifting others and going the extra mile to help. As a child every weekend was fun because I will always spent the weekend with you.
I remembered the last time I saw you we had a lengthy discussion and I saw your worries and happiness same day. Is unfortunate that God did not answer my prayer for you to stay alive but I know God knows best. I hope you've seen your sisters and brothers over there and that you all are happy. Say hi to them for me and that I missed them all. Thank you for all you've done for the family. We shall continue where you and UK stopped.
I knew how hard you've thrived in this world and so many things you overcame. You're a phenomenal woman and a woman of integrity. Glad we got part of that and I can say it runs in the blood. Writing this made me realise that this is real, you're no more on this earth but you will always be in our hearts.
Farewell Dee
Farewell Ùlo OgbodinwankwoUgo.
Farewell Mama.

I miss your words to us when we were younger'okenye o na ata Cho be nu? And we will answer no and munch on your food together. Oh!!!! What sweet memories. Mmaa, you were too much. Thank God for blessing us with a wonderful mum like you.

Legends don’t die; we take them with us. I will always take you with me. Mmaa m o!! Our love was a conspicuous one. Not only was I told you loved my father, Felix Offor, to pieces, and you confirmed it with every ounce of your heart, words and actions. ‘Ada Fenix,’ UcheCHUKWU!.. you called all our names with emphasis on the ‘Chukwu’ or whatever the suffix is. If there is no suffix, you added one, e.g., Ngozichukwu, Ogechukwu, Onyinyechukwu....So we also conned your name Mmaa. A mother so unique because you had a way to make each one feel special and loved.
Even though I dreaded your exit, I received the news with peace and respect. I remember smiling first, then disintegrating into tears. It was a day after my birthday, and it was an instant sign that you remained mindful of me until the end.

As a child, you showed me what it takes to be a virtuous woman. You had a Midas touch for material and immaterial things; your palm oil, farm produce and the people that worked for you were premia. Who else buys bunches of plantain from the owner when there still are budding in anticipation that her children ( biological and non-biological) were coming home for vacation? Orders loaves of bread straight from the bakery or reroute the ‘nwanyi agwa-iko’ (moimoi lady)from going to igwe akwu because her stockpile for that day can barely satisfy her children? If there was any woman in Ihioma fit for chieftaincy title, it was our Mmaa Augustina Oyiridiya Offor. With all due respect, you achieved far greater than some men. As the Bible says, “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:29‬ ‭NLT‬‬. The chief warrior herself, you fearlessly stood on the shoulders of our past direct family members, and you raised an entire generation of warriors. We thank God for the time He gave us with you. I learned loyalty, love, kindness (ata biri enye nwanne- take a bite and pass on to your brother/sister), unity, forgiveness and tracking together even when there are thorns.
I am forever grateful for your unwavering loyalty and support for my mom. Thanks for walking with her through thick and thin. Committing to keeping her in the family, representing her in proxy in all the duly associations. Thank you for ensuring I held my head high, fully aware of whose child I am and keeping it together. I will miss hearing your voice and your passive yet authoritative way of instruction. Yeah, you knew you had power, and you used it wisely and in love.
I will continue to celebrate you and all the legends you joined. By God’s grace, I will do my best to share our relationship and history with my children and their future generations, God helping me.


Mmaa m o, ka odi

So long!
