Dear Mom. Yesterday was your birthday. You would have turned 82 years. Hmmm. This life sha. Still can't believe you're gone. We all still miss you so, so much. Rest in peace our latest angel.

One Year!!! Wow. Dear mom, hard to believe you've been gone for a whole year. Hmmmm. Truth be told, it's been one tough, challenging, turbulent and emotional year for me. You weren't there to advise me as the waves rolled over me. You weren't there to assure all would be well as I battled sickness after sickness, scary health news and all. Yes, you were not there physically but I felt your presence all through. Your admonitions, encouragement, hugs, laughter, jokes and the memories of your 'out of this world' dishes kept me on an even keel. Thank you mom for being you. Thank you for helping to mold me into the best version of myself. Thank you for helping me raise your grandsons who miss you as much as I be.
Most of all mom, thank you for teaching me to have absolute faith and trust in God. Sometimes when things get overwhelming I hear your voice telling me, ' Patty pray! Don't give up. God always answers prayers no matter how long it takes.'
Oh mom, my heart is still broken. But what can I do? I've learnt to take each day at a time, one step after another.
My dearest beautiful mom, my angel in heaven, continue to rest in peace until we meet again.
I love you mom.

Dear Mommy. First Christmas celebrations without you and me being sick and all. I believe that if you were around you would have gotten me out of sick bed on Christmas day. To say that i miss you is an understatement. No midnight phone call on Christmas eve to pray for me and mine. Wow, 6 months after and I'm still befuddled. But as you always told me, God is on His throne. Nothing surprises Him. Nnem oma, continue to rest in peace. I know you're watching over us all. I love you mom, always and forever.

Today is September 18, 2021. Mommy would have been 81 years old today. The Covid 19 pandemic denied us the opportunity of a big celebration of her 80th last year. So, this year, we had planned to have a spectacular celebration but God had other plans. He took her on July 6, 2021, to be with Him. Our loss is heaven's gain. Mommy, i know you're looking down at us. On this birthday of yours, we thank God for the life you lived, the lives you touched, the grace of God upon us and the love of family and friends. Thank you for all that you did here on earth and are doing above as our guardian angel.
We love and miss you.
Happy birthday from all of us.

The first day I saw mommy was when my grandpa took me to see her husband in Ibusa. She sat next to her husband. Within me, I knew she was a woman filled with Grace and of a beautiful soul. I had only seen her once in my life time and that was enough to know. Adiós, till we meet again on the resurrection morning.

Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes.
Because for those who love with heart and soul
there is no such thing as separation.
– Rumi

I commiserate with the Oditas on the glorious passing of an amazing wife, a dutiful mother and an inspiring grandmother.

Chief (Mrs.) Caroline Mukoso Odita was a Mother to everyone who came in contact with her. An amazon, her motherly affection and kindness left everyone awe-struck all the time. And all who related with her, no doubt, benefitted from her wisdom, mentoring and wealth of experience.

I share in the grief of the entire Odita family at this time. However, I am comforted that she will live on in our hearts as we draw strength from the memories of her amazing and beautiful life on earth. Ekwulo Nwanyi, as she was fondly called, was a strong, caring and selfless mother, a leader in every respect.

I pray that God will grant the Oditas the serenity and peace needed to get through her loss. Be assured sir, that you are in my thoughts and prayers, now and always.

TRIBUTE TO A FASHIONISTA. AUNTIE CARO ODITA.

With a heavy heart but with total submission to God, I am remembering my two Mummies. (MUMMY GRACE IFEORA/MUMMY CARO ODITA)BOTH in their blessed Memory.
Both of them came into my life in late 70s.

Auntie Caro was always too vocal she will tell her mind without mincing words. She was always young at heart. Her fashion sense was fantastic. For my Auntie Age was a Number. Her beauty and Charisma were beautiful
My Darling Auntie was also a fantastic cook and her taste for for Decorations was Awesome
Well Who re we to Question God.

An unbelievable reality!

It was a heart rending news to hear that you have left us - still a reality so hard to cope with.

One thing that I know is that; If death were to spare some mortals, permitting them to live forever; mummy would have been one of the selected ones - but death is indeed inevitable.

Multitude would have cast a vote for you to keep you alive forever as a living monument if we were empowered to do so for you, but we take solace in the fact that you lived and enjoyed your life fully and have touched many lives.

Families and loved ones are sorrowful even though we know that death is only a transition to a higher realm above the physical world because you are irreplaceable and will be greatly missed!

Such an adorable wife, a blessed mother and a lovely grandmother. An embodiment of strength, courage and grace. An epitome of beauty - an age defier goddess!

Mummy's love for hospitality was monumental and her capability to multitask with a Midas touch was huge.

Mummy was a one package full of many lovely gifts in one person to / for everyone in touch with her.

She was affectionately admired by many of us younger ones.

Though I never stayed so close to enjoy intimacy with her as much as I would have loved to, the few chances I had shall remain unforgettable.

Mummy actually told me a little about her life and it was very inspiring!

Mummy, I am one of those who saw you recently. I sat beside you on a couch as I ate the food that was served to me in your living room! You opened.up a heart to heart discussion with me as if you were my biological mother and because we hadn't seen for long but I never knew that would be the last time! You didn't show any sign!

Life is such a mystery!

A hugh crowd of people are going to miss you big time.

But, while we mourn your departure we know for sure yours is a celebration of a beautiful life. It is a call to glory and the memories of you are sweet. Oh supper mummy - oh mummy ,- oh supper mummy!

You have been set free from pains, stress and worries of this physical world. You have conquered the fear of death!

Rest in His bosom with peace that surpasses all understanding.

May God grant us; your loved ones - family members (husband, children and grandchildren etc) Church members, friends and associates the needed fortitude to bear your glorious transition in Jesus name. Amen.

Good night and farewell my Super Mummy.

Dele Akinbode.

Tribute to a Woman of Substance
*****************************
Ekwulo Nwanyi! We received the rude shock of your demise and it shook us to our very core. You received us in your home at Mafoluku for our end of year party only last December and you were bustling with life as always.
You were many things to ANGI Lagos branch and the void can not be filled so easily. You were Mother, Aunty, Big Sister, Friend, Confidant, Mentor, Adviser, Bridge Builder, Negotiator, and most importantly you were proudly Ada Nri.
You stood tall in person and personality. Your impact was always felt and your demise has left us heartbroken. You were the glue that held ANGI Lagos and you have left big shoes to fill.
We will hold on to the example you left us and the values you held dear. We pray that God strengthens us all to bear this loss especially your immediate family.
Ekwulo Nwanyi!

I'm really going to miss mummy, she was there for me when I got married, she got me into the ibusa wives committee and stood by me whenever I needed her. She was very fun to be with, I remember our international trips together they were always memorable because of her.
She was a very down to earth person, a very good cook and a very neat woman. She will be dearly missed by I and my family. May the lord grant her eternal rest and console those she left behind. She will forever be remembered. Adios MAMA CARO ODITA

A Tribute to a Sweet, Elegant and Adorable Mum.
Mummy like no other I don't mourn you but I celebrate you, though your death came as a great shock no wonder my system changed and I felt sick the moment I heard the sad news because this is not what we planned. You told me that Ibusa women are celebrating and sending you forth in August and being the organized woman that you were, you brought out wrappers and asked me to choose the one to use for the occasion and I did and we were looking forward to accompany you on that day but little did I know that you will not be around.
Mummy, I wish you had travelled to London for holiday and I will have hope to see you again.  Mummy I wish you had stayed more 20yrs because you were full of life but we can't query God in a time such as this because He is the all knowing.
You lived a fulfilled life and your life is worthy of emumation. You were an all rounder never to be taken unaware, you were an epitome of beauty, neatness, orderliness, kindness and love.
There was never a dull moment with you, you rejoiced with those that are rejoicing, you were the true definition of a virtuous woman, there was always something new to learn from you.
Your love and kind gestures towards every one will not be forgotten in a hurry, you don't discriminate you say things the way they are, all children are your children, you were full of love and you gave it to all.
NNE ORA like I fondly call you, Ogbeowele/Ibusa Men/women will greatly miss you and your tasty meals.
Mummy, I am so grateful for showing me great love ever since you entered Odita's family, thank you for all you taught me especially the organized woman you have made me become, for all the advice and ecourragement.
You will be greatly missed but forever in our hearts.
Rest in perfect peace

Mom Odita, you were such a compassionate mother even before I had the rare opportunity to meet you. You were down to earth and very motherly to all. I never had the privilege to enjoy you for long. I take solace in the scripture that sweet is the memory of the righteous. Sleep on, till we shall meet to part no more. Adieu.

MEMORIAL TRIBUTE TO OUR DEAR AUNT.

"An Iroko has Fallen".
Tuesday 6th July, 2021 was an unpleasant day not to be forgotten. For us Naps Nnamdi/ Philo Okonkwo and Family, Chief (Mrs.) Carolyn Mukoso Odita, the demise of our dearest Aunt Carol “as we fondly called you”, was an information that jolted us ALL.

You were an amazing Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, Wife and above all, a woman of impeccable character. A dutiful wife of our own caring Uncle Frank Odita, Cp Rtd.
You will be missed by a good number of your admirers. You exhibited charisma, boldness, and selflessness. These attributes you translated to your numerous interactions with the various groups you belonged to both in your place of birth and marital environment.
Your role during meetings held in our Ogbeowele Women's Wing, Ibusa was a pointer to your leadership quality which was very obvious. To you, "leadership is all about Sacrifice"
Aunt Carol, you were beautiful with a kind heart. You were a caring and ardent Christian. You lived a fulfilled and worthy life.Your memories will live with us forever.

The World is indeed a stage. You have acted your scene and gone beyond to meet with your Creator.
Our heartfelt sympathies, thoughts, and fervent prayers to our dearest Uncle as You will be greatly missed .

"GOD giveth and GOD taketh. Who are we to question GOD's decision?"

Rest in Perfect Peace.

Naps Nnamdi/ Phil Okonkwo & Family.

Mummy D mummy,
Ekulo Nwanyi,
It was like a jolt out of what I can't describe when my wife informed me of your departure, and up till this moment, I still can't comprehend the news of your non existence anymore.

Well, what can I say than it is well. I wish all women and wives in this life will be like you, the mark you left on the sands of time will be difficult to equal.

Fare thee well most till we meet to part no more to the Glory of God in Jesus name AMEN.

My beautiful, charming, elegant mummy. When I called you last week monday to check on you, I didn't know it was going to be the last time I will hear your sweet voice. Although, I met you few years ago, you related with me like your own daughter. It was a rude shock to hear of your passing from Stella. However, we are comforted knowing you lived well and in a better place. Goodnite mummy, rest well in God's bossom
Posted by Beneditta Okonkwo on July 11, 2021
"Mummy" as we all fondly called her in the UmuIyase family union was an exceptional woman. When she joined the group it took a different turn, She helped structure meeting by setting-up the executive members back when we still met at Olodi Okuta in Surulere.
She opted to be the president, while Mrs. Veronica U. Adina took up the role of Vice president and other exco members were selected.
Due to the location of her resident, members opted to use the resident of the vice-president as our meeting venue which to us, was more accessible for our members.
She had a special place in her heart for every one and welcomed all to her home warmly.
All had the same testimony of her love, warmth and kindness as a loving mother.
She was an excellent organiser which was evident in the planning of our end of the year events hosted with our husbands at her resident. We all will miss her greatly.
We are thankful to God for the beautiful life she lived spreading joy to everyone she came in contact.
Mummy, we know you are resting with the Lord in a much better place.
Rest well and rest on, till we meet at the rapture of the saints.
I pray that God will continue to console your beloved husband and children.

With love from UmuIyase family union (Women's wing), Lagos state.

Ogbeowele women, Lagos branch and indeed, Ibusa women as a whole, has lost to death a woman of substance.
We are all in sorrow hearing this shocking news.
Mummy was the Treasurer of our Union, a disciplined and very accountable Treasurer.
Mummy's character cannot be spelt out in this tribute because of space. She was a woman of integrity and very humble, a friend to the mighty and low in the society. At meetings, her wise counsel and contributions will be sorely missed. She expressed her feelings not minding whose ox is gored. A very fashionable woman who likes looking good all the time. She tells us that age should not be a barrier to looking good. Mummy has touched so many lives and is now with her creator to give account of her stewardship on earth. She has fought a good fight, finished her course and has gone to claim her crown in heaven. We shall all miss her, but the angels are happy to receive a beautiful soul.
We shall all meet at the ressurection to part ño more.
Rest in perfect peace Mummy.

From: The President and Ogbeowele Women.

Hmmm! My sister-friend, Patricia (Odita) Sarumi, has lost her "Mother", not a sister-in-law.
Ndo!
I didn't know Auntie personally, but knew her from her relationship with Trish, as an in-law who was closer than a birth Mum, Trish having lost hers. She was there for Trish for everything from omugwos, to illnesses, birthdays, and other family actl⁷ivities.
I didn't know her, but feel like I did. I remember telling Trish how much alike they looked, when I saw both of them on one of Trish's DPs.
I feel Trish's loss; her pain; especially since she's still hurting from the loss of her nephew, Bishop.
Uncle Frank, Trish, & the entire family, pease be comforted by her beautiful life & legacy. May her soul rest in perfect peace, & her memory always be sweet, in Jesus name.

I am shocked beyond comprehension, to believe you are gone for ever, it is honestly difficult for me to understand. When I saw you off at the airport on your way to Jos on Saturday I didn’t realize that was the last time I will see you live. Your departure from this wowithout saying goodbye has left me confused because you are not just a wife but a pillar in my life, an epitome love, my confidant that carry my banner every where you go. You are the ambassador of the Odita family that cannot be replaced. My Super, your departure has left a vacuum that will be very difficult to fill. You are my my evergreen, unforgettable and endless love. I have accepted the verdict of your withdrawal from this world knowing you lived your life to the fullest. My only regret is that that you did not live longer to enjoy the fruits of your labour. I will miss you everyday as long as I live as there can never be another you. Rest in bosom of Lord my darling till we meet to part no more. Hubby Frank.

Grandma, my earliest memories of you were sunglasses. When ever we met, you would have a pair on, I would look at the pictures in your house and you would be wearing another pair. It always fascinated me. When ever I saw you, you would look like Steeve McQueen. You were always the coolest person in the room. The sunglasses could not obscure the light and warmth you radiated. You were full of life and love. You imparted wisdom and joy. I regret not knowing you even more. You will be sorely missed by all. Thank you for the time you spent with us all.

Mommy!!! It's so surreal to be writing a tribute to you. We spent all day, last Friday, together. You were leaving for Jos the next day and i came to say goodbye. Little did i know that would be the last time i would see you alive. We subsequently spoke on the phone after your arrival in Jos. Tuesday night Ifeanyi called me to inform me of your passing and broke my heart. So many things were left unsaid. Who could have foreseen that death was in the offing. We were looking forward to a big celebration in September of your 81st birthday. We could not have a big bash for your 80th due to the Covid pandemic. Oh Mommy there's still so much to learn from you. You taught me how to be a wife and a mom. You gave of yourself and material resources. No one ever left your home without eating. Packages of food and other items were always handed to any and all visitors upon departure. Your counsel was very wise and profound. You believed in the goodness of everyone you came in contact with. You were firm and principled. Told the truth at all times and encouraged us all to do the same. You catered to so many people's needs. Your last words to me on Sunday night was "live in peace wirh everyone. I don't want to hear that you were quarrelling with anyone." I will do my very best, Mommy. Though my heart is broken i thank God for the fulfilled, joyful and loving life you lived. You will be sorely missed. Eternal rest grant her oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. I love you Mommy.

Most of all mom, thank you for teaching me to have absolute faith and trust in God. Sometimes when things get overwhelming I hear your voice telling me, ' Patty pray! Don't give up. God always answers prayers no matter how long it takes.'
Oh mom, my heart is still broken. But what can I do? I've learnt to take each day at a time, one step after another.
My dearest beautiful mom, my angel in heaven, continue to rest in peace until we meet again.
I love you mom.

Dear Mommy. First Christmas celebrations without you and me being sick and all. I believe that if you were around you would have gotten me out of sick bed on Christmas day. To say that i miss you is an understatement. No midnight phone call on Christmas eve to pray for me and mine. Wow, 6 months after and I'm still befuddled. But as you always told me, God is on His throne. Nothing surprises Him. Nnem oma, continue to rest in peace. I know you're watching over us all. I love you mom, always and forever.

My tribute to sweet hearted Lady Caro Odita

Shared by Jerry Nwaokolo on July 9, 2021
Lively; energetic; passionate; friendly; hospitable; fashionable; strong; humble; intelligent; full of wisdom, are some of my key words to describe this adorable woman that I associated with for a very brief period of her lifetime.

I never left her company any time that I visited, without receiving a strong impartion of the grace and warmth that her presence commanded. She was full of words of wisdom and life!

Surprisingly, she never looked nor sounded 81 years of age. She very youthful at heart, being able to relate effectively with the much more younger generation of folks she crossed paths with in life. I vividly remember an intelligent and insightful counsel she gave me on relationship with ladies that helped me in this department of life. She was in tune with current trends in society, and yet was still leveraging on her great wealth of experience in this area.

It saddens my heart, that, her recent demise was the next thing I heard of this beautiful souled woman. I remember how she would tease and gently rebuke me for failing to call and visit her often, considering that we both lived in the same city, not very far from each other: but unfortunately, the myraid of activites that occupies me in Lagos, which also steals my attention from servicing important relationships, did not avail me such obligatory commitment. I hereby repent of this flaw: I am human.

Life is a journey; we are pilgrims in this place called planet earth. There is an expiration date for our earthly sojourn here. We must all exit it someday, only to return to inhabit the new earth someday, after Christ has redeemed our bodies and destroyed death, clothing His saints with immortality. We must all live our current lives here on earth in preparation for this, as there is no second chance after death to be right with God. Hebrew 9:27 (The Bible).

Dear mama Caro, may God grant your soul eternal peace and rest.
I will greatly miss you!
I am so sorry that I never visited nor telephoned you over so long a period of time.

Jerry.
