|Let the memory of Caroline be with us forever|
"Mmasiolu 1! ,Onyeka & sons! Nwa Okeke!, Ezigbo mmadu. Okwa Ngozi na etu afa! I just want to thank you for all you did for me. During a very dark period of my life, you were a solid support, always praying fo20 The king sent and loosed him, even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.r me and encouraging me. The last time I saw you, during the wedding, you sealed the encouragement by certain things you told me, but I did not know it then. You ran your race well, you have received your crown. We all miss you Mama. Ga ije gi nke oma."
"An amazing woman who will be greatly missed by all. Continue to rest in perfect peace mama!"
"Aunty!! I still find it hard to believe that you are no longer with us. You were and always will be my best aunt. You were one of a kind. I can still recall our last telephone conversation and how as always you were busy praying for me. When you said "continue to look after my sister Christy" little did I know that you were subtley saying goodbye. I miss you so much. You may have left us but your memory lives on and you will forever be in our hearts. Adieu auntie, until we meet to part no more!"
"I always remember how strict you were on keeping to time. I was going to come and visit you after service on that Sunday and rejoice with you on your recovery from the stroke. I was looking forward to sitting in the shop gisting with you while I drank that giant bottle of Fanta you always gave me. Alas I got the call on Saturday that you left that morning. RIP mama."
""Mama i still cant believe you are gone forever i spoke to you barely a week before your departure from this world and you told me you were fine and wished me success on my course in Jaji. words cant express how much i miss you but my only consolation is that you are happy where you are smiling down and praying for us. i love you mama RIP in the arms of the lord till we meet to part no more.
Capt Chukwuemeka Okereke."
"TRIBUTE TO MY LOVING MUM
Mama it is hard to believe that you are actually gone. When I close my eyes I see you but the yuletide season actually made me acknowledge that you are truly gone when I did not receive any call from you by 12 midnight to wish me and my family a happy new year. I remember that Saturday of 30th November, when my heart was filled with joy as my husband and I were preparing to go to the airport to catch our flight to Enugu to visit you. It was definite that we were coming to Enugu but what I did not know was that I was never going to see you alive ever again.
Mama I cannot recall ever seeing you sick but the sickness I can recall due to the hot water that poured on you, just snatched you away from us without any pre-warning. However it is not for me to question the Almighty God because I know you are resting in his bosom.
I try now to focus on your goodness, your sharp acumen in keeping abreast of all happenings in the life of your children, grand - children, great-grandchildren, my aunties, cousins’ e.t.c. You were always there to provide update on all family events and most importantly remind me of any promise I made, yes mama you will never forget any promise made to you.
You lived a good and healthy life and all I can say now is farewell mama till we meet to part no more.
Your baby, Oby Ezeoke"
"I thank God for giving you such a long life and am proud to share the same name as you. We are sad but know that you are now in a better place. Hope you enjoy those talks with Jesus, Moses...(whichever prophet you like). :)"
"Mama,its me jnr,you said you would fry plantain for me the next time i come but you didnt wait for me and i understand that.Thank you for everything,the love and care..miss you much..You are in a better place now."
"Mama, It's me Chiichiii like you fondly called me each time we visited. Sleep on in Gods blossom. You exhumed humility and displayed so much love to all. Accomidated all that came around you. True christianity indeed.
You will be missed"
"Mama, these wonderful memories are not sufficient... I still miss you. God bless you for all the lessons and examples(they couldn't be better). Rest in Christ, till we meet to part no more."
"Mmasiolu, you lived a great life, and the fragrance of your love will forever remain. I am proud to share in your heritage. Your legacy lives on through our lives. God bless you for giving us a perfect example of how to lead a Christlike life. It's a comfort to know that you are in the Lord's bossom smiling down on me. Auf wiedersehen"
