Dear Aunty Edith, Words cannot describe the love and impact you had on us. My words, more so limited that I could never do justice to your kind and cheerful heart. What we are left with are pleasant memories of your altruism. Though far apart, I cannot thank you enough for teaching us to love selflessly. Even though you had many of us looking up to you, none of us ever felt left out. You supported me through my studies and even while I was far away from everyone trying to settle down at the end of the world (down under). You left your doors wide open to all of us...welcoming us with open arms always. Through frustrating times, there was hardly any doubts of your selfless love. I remember vividly, over four years ago in summer of 2014 during the Brazil world cup. I was out running errands with you while the Super Eagles were playing against Argentina. I was grumpy and frustrated for not being able to watch the game. Yet, the following morning, you would get up at 5 am to accompany me to the airport even though you did not need to do so. Just another way you taught me how important it is to be kind, appreciate family and be grateful to God for the chance to spend time with loved ones. I will miss you Aunty! We all will miss you! God loves you even more. Adieu!!

Tribute to Edith Ejoh-Garner Words are scarce but the little we can muster we will. Your stern stance was reassuring in adversity, and when there were tears, you gave comfort. To fault you is your penchant to give, you never knew not to give even when you had none. You brought joy when there were tears, and tears of joy with your magnanimity. But you always had your heart, which was large and accommodating. Your satire knew no bounds. You defied all odds, and unrelenting in your beliefs. Your scorn was swift and decisive, unblemished and unleashed fury in defense, protection and love towards your own. To our mother, aunt, sister and angel. Rest in the Lord.

Irish Prayer ​May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be ever at your back May the sun shine warm upon your face And the rain fall softly on your fields And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand​ - From Ifeoma Idigo

I was heart broken when I heard of your demise Aunty Dr. Edith Ejoh Garner. I will never forget in a hurry how you took care of my late mother-Mary Green Ogugua when she visited you in Baltimore years ago. Only the Almighty God knows why you left us at this time. It is beyond our comprehension. You will always be remembered. May your kind soul rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Adieu Ada Aguleri.

Dearest Aunty Edith. I keep wishing you were still here! It is hard to accept that you are no more, but now I have understood nothing lasts for ever. You touched so many lives positively. You had a heart of gold. You were a great disciplinarian. I will miss you dearly but all the memories,i will keep in mind and through them, we will never depart. Keep resting in the Lord's blossom.

Aunty (Dr.) Edith... Your death came as a rude shock. You taught me to be brave, which you always exuded. I remember vividly, when you contested for Mayor, the only lady to be in the race then because of your intimidating resume. It feels like a dream, writing this seems so unreal. Death has done its worst, but heaven welcomes an Angel home. I will forever cherish every single moment spent with you. Keep resting in the bosom of the Almighty till we meet to part no more. Love u Aunty.

Guess God wanted someone so sweet and loving that he decided to separate us from our aunt, cousin, mom and sister. However, her loss is truly devastating for us all. Rest in Peace Aunty Edith till we meet to path no more!

Dear Aunty E....I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that you are gone....It is still surreal. I missed you by 48 hours. If only I had scheduled my trip earlier I would have had the chance to hear your voice one more time or hugged you or just spent time with you. I cannot question God's ways but to accept it for the best. Rest well in the bosom of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We love you.

Thank you for being a great aunt. It's tough to come to terms that you are gone. All the love that you showed to us and everyone will forever remain in our heart. Our comfort is that we know that you are in a better place, where the evils of this world can no longer get to you. May your gentle soul continue to rest in peace with the Lord, Amen.
