You were a woman of strong commanding personality with good leadership skills, so full of energy, strong opinions & an intense commitment to family. You lived a fruitful life that is worthy of honour and left footprints on the sands of time which you will be forever remembered. May the Good Lord receive you in his blossom. Good night & sleep well.

Not met you before, but your husband, Dr Eugene, was my classmate in King's College Lagos and FGC Warri. May your soul find eternal rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus, who will comfort your family and grant them the strength to continue to uphold the wonderful legacy you have left for them. Rest in perfect peace and we shall all meet on resurrection morning to the glory of God Almighty. Amen.

Condolences to the Onwuka family. May the good Lord comfort you in this trying moment. She ran her race and fought a good fight. She fulfilled her purpose. Her legacy will live. I am sure she would want to be remembered for all the good moments that were shared among family and friends.

We are all saddened to hear that you have gone to be with the Lord. We cannot forget how much of a blessing you were to us whilst we were in Primary school, how you would often pick us up whenever Prof.A.U was very busy. We also remember your delicious pastries. You were indeed a beautiful soul Sister Damaris. We are deeply honoured to have known you. Chibueze Mbanaso for the Mbanaso's family.

I'm glad you're resting, I truly am. You're a good person and you fought hard enough and long enough, now rest. The bible tells me that heaven is a beautiful place; aha! you'll be at home there. Send your lovely family kisses from heaven and tell the Father to watch over them. If you could send a selfie, that would be nice, so everyone can continue to look forward to it too. You're fondly remembered and deeply loved by many but since God has you now, we know you're resting pretty. God keep and comfort us all. Xoxoxo.

Dear Ma, Words fail me in expressing how pained I am. You were a kind woman, full of empathy and kindness to all. I will never forget the role you played in my healing when tragedy struck in my family in 2015. Aunty your light shone as my director even till you retired. The words of the Lord are sure concerning his children who sleep. Let's be comforted with these It is well.....

Like the flower you emerged with such brightness and blossoming through life just like a tree planted by the river side. You were a champion in all the races of life from education to work, marriage to motherhood, Family to Friends, an oke-ada ndi Imo and ezigbo nwunye ndi Ngwa/Abia state. I visited you severally during your last days and you were still so courageous while displaying your great faith in God. I believe that you are resting at the feet of your creator. Good bye to a Humanitarian per Excellence, A care giver of great repute. I hope and pray that your children will continue with your legacies especially the free medical program in your village. We all miss you.

Delightful Affectionate Maternal Amiable Reliable Inspiring Sympathetic These are the few words that would describe you. You had the biggest heart and lit up each room you found yourself in. Even through your pain, it was not about you but about those around you. You lived by example and showed us what it means to love. I am blessed to have known you and so thankful for the way you loved on my family and I. Although your leaving has brought us so much pain, we take hope knowing that you fought a good fight and finished your race. Rest in His arms aunty. Forever in our hearts.

Nne nne m Damaris... Keep singing with the Angels. I miss your presence; your tender voice and laughter; I miss your 'old' wise sayings in Igbo (even Mbano) language. You loved life and people. You taught me never to accept the status quo but go the distance and break barriers. You fought gallantly even to the last moments. You lived well.... I know are still living well.... Till we meet again Aunt I will always love you! Your baby, Dr Chioma Uchendu Nee Abraham-Igwe
