"A part of my heart lives in Heaven"

Mun, the pains of your demise left me shattered. Nothing breaks my heart more than having a world and a home without you. How do I live without calling you these names ‘Sweet mum, Mama Obiageli, Ojiugo, Mama Ify Nne mama Ify, Great Amazon, Damian’s diamond, Grand Mama Jos’. This few months without you has indeed been the longest and darkest months of my existence. No wonder, it is said that when a mother dies, we lose a piece of who we are, we lose the person whose story provides the beginning of our own’ you were truly an inspiring soul, a disciplinarian a pathfinder and an instructor. Your door was always open to those who came knocking for solace in their problem. Your warm embrace was accompanied with bright smile. A mother with a heart of gold. Beautiful Mother, Nneoma, Precious mum, a woman like no other in a million... there is not a word to describe how important you are to me. I am privileged to be born from your womb. You thought me all the basics, how to survive in difficult times, how to love beyond bounds, how to be a good daughter, wife, mother and to open my arms to accommodate others. You thought me all but one thing you failed to teach is how to live without you, how to live a day without hearing your voice saying ’’Oby! Kedu? The pains of your death took away the better me with you. As an Ada, how do I fit into those big shoes of yours? How do I carry out those family duties which you readily executed with so much ease. I will forever miss you with silent tears. Mummy, you remain a part of my heart that lives in heaven. Please walk with us forever with the Heavenly Angels.
Keep resting in the arms of the Supreme Creator.
Love you mum!

OJIUGO MY MOTHER-IN-LAW

...Ojiugo please come back....
There is no love like that selfless love you had. your heart was filled with care. I came to marry from the Ohanyidos, but your immense love and care took my relationship with the Ohanyidos to greater sphere. Mummy, you came for pre-omugwu before our first child was born to ensure that my wife Oma was doing well with the pregnancy. Your return for the Omugwu-proper when Ifeomachukwu was born availed me the privilege to experience and have my share of your great love and care. Your lifestyle made me pet-named Ifeomachukwu Ojiugo after you. Sweet mother you are, you were readily available with a name when I asked you to name my second daughter. You did name her ...Ozioma.
Thanks for your love and care.

Thanks for the privilege of knowing you.

Thanks for the family value you embedded in your children.

Thanks for your selfless service.

Thanks for all the gift.

Thanks for the washing, the clearing, the cooking, the planting...

Thanks for all the motherly advice.

Thanks for the great plan you have for the family.

Thank you mummy...thank you mummy....thank you mummy.
Mummy, you are simply the best mother-in-law for life ...am blessed.
You are more than a mother-in-law to me; you were my best friend.
Good night.... go well

About 7 PM on that fateful Saturday, April 3, it was a Holy Saturday and the next day was Easter Sunday. I stopped and parked my car under a tree, feeling inexplicably downcast. Two hours later I received news of your ascendance. How could that be? My siblings and I were already in a joyful mood that you were fast recovering and Easter will be commemorated with happy relief.
Mummy, you were always there for me – my brothers and my sisters and for so many others. Always! A role you took seriously coupled with being a father to us for the last 22 years. You were a proper mum in the best sense of the word.
For mummy, it is better to give than to receive. A principle she practiced all her life. She took in people who needed help when she had so little. She was generous, kind, loving, sweet, caring, emphatic, honest, elegant, fastidious, brave, strong, beautiful, resilient, thoughtful, hopeful, selfless, and prayerful.

My mum whose beautiful warm smile captured the attention of everyone. Your departure was too sudden, yet so much shifted inside of me since then. Losing your loving warm embrace and counsel is like having someone pull away the protective cover I had relied on all my life. Your love was like moonlight that turned harsh things into beauty.

If only I knew last Christmas and new year holidays that my wife, children, and I traveled primarily to spend with you would be the last I saw you alive... While I mourn your departure with uncontrollable tears mummy, I am comforted that you are in a better place and resting with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Your son and third child

She was a grandma on earth,
A spirit in Paradise,
And a queen in heaven

Tribute to my Queen.
Am still in shock at your sudden demise and it really hurts.
I never imagined that I will be writing a funeral tribute for you at this time. You were full of life and energy. May God help us all, the children you left behind to follow your good legacy of discipline, hardwork, and uprightness. How can we get great icon like you? I miss you grandma, may your gentle soul rest in peace.

It was painful to come to the reality that "you are gone to be with the Lord" a lover of Peace, my role model, you never said goodbye mum but, Who are we to question God, He knows the end from the beginning. Your advice lightened my ways, i am everly grateful. Life is a tree planted by the stream you flourished, Glowed and blossomed. You were a mother in-law with a difference, we were best of friends, a mother and daughter relationship.
Your life was a blessing.
Your memory a Treasure.
You are loved Beyond words.
And missed Beyond measure.
We lost but heaven gained.
Rest in peace my Sunshine.
Daughter in-law.

To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the Heaven. A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted. Eccl 3:1.

Beloved in-law and Mother-in-law to Mrs Sandra Emeka Ohanyido, you lived an accomplished life in the Service of God and humanity leaving behind legacies Worthy of emulation.

Word can quantify how immersed I am in grief. You were patiently awaiting the big day when you will wear your big head gear for 'her' wedding. Hmm. What a life. No one knows tomorrow. But you knew we were meant to be hitched by December. The torny hands of death came too early, however, you will wear the gele by the side of God this December. I promise I will take care of her with all the strength I got. I miss your kind words and your wonderful smile. Bliss aboard the roller coaster of Christ till we meet to part no more. Cheers

Maama of life. My voltron and defender.
Words fail me as i still feel like i can pick up the phone and call and ask how you are doing.......!!!!

You were always ready to listen and advice. I could tell you things confidently because you never judged me, you would only advice and make sure i understood why my opinion or decision was wrong and then suggest other ways to handle a situation.

I miss calling and hearing you laugh over the phone.
I know Jos holidays wont be the same again. Christmas in Jos will be completely incomplete without 'MummyC'. Especially for your grandchildren!!!

Am relieved we spent time during the holidays.
I miss the late night gists while watching Zeeworld.

We love you MUMMYC. I take consolation in JESUS' promise of life after death.
The ONE who is all knowing has called you to be with him.......

Thank you, mother. You forgave all my childhood flaws; you stood by my side regardless of all my mistakes, you love me beyond words, and you have forgiven all my mistakes with love. I love you so much, and I miss your presence in my life mom.
To the world you were one person, but to me you were the world. You didn’t have much, but we always felt like we had everything. You didn’t leave millions in your bank account, but you left a legacy worth much more.

You taught me love, patience and endurance. You taught me how to pray and led by example. You praised me whenever I did good and pointed out my mistakes with that gentle voice. You encouraged me to work hard in school and taught me how to read and write. I still remember your voice as you gave me your sweet motherly advise. I think about you every day.

I was devastated when you feel ill. In a matter of days, the smile on your face disappeared and was replaced by gloom. I remember I couldn’t leave your side for one second.

I will never forget that fateful Satuday evening when you said goodbye forever. The cruel hand of death had snatched you away from us. We miss you every day. I thank God for you and cherish the memories we made. I love you.i will forever miss you my mom and grandmother.

Mummy, my first encounter with you through Austin was a marvelous one. You accepted me into the family as a mother would accept a son. The memories will forever remain fresh in my mind. The gap created by the lost can never be quantified,but we are consoled with the fact that you are resting well with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen

Oh Mama I remember when we "coincidentally" come to greet you during lunch time and as usual you always have food for us to eat, especially your ogbono soup that you so generously serve us. You always receive us with smiles and frank advices. Indeed it is a privilege to have been fed by you. Mama we miss you but we are consoled that you are in lord' bosom comfort. May you soul rest in perfect peace. Ameen

No words... None enough to describe your Large heart, you loved all and sundry. Can't believe am describing you in past tense already. Sleep well beautiful Mummy C! God rest your beautiful soul. You're sorely missed
Posted by Imabe Lekwot on June 16, 2021
Mama, you were such an amazing soul. The news of your demise came to me as a rude shock but we rest in the fact that as believers, you have transited to glory. May perpetual light continue to shine upon you, and may your soul rest in perfect peace with the Lord.
