ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Elizabeth Amkpa. We will remember her forever.
Posted by Udeme Ukpong on August 5, 2021
Dear Abraham Amkpa & lovely children,

Please receive the comfort of the Holy Ghost for this great loss at this time. What a time to depart?

Our Lord Jesus Christ never fails so we are confident that He will show His unfailingly love, faithfulness and awesome deeds of righteousness to make the journey ahead easy for all of us.

Elizabeth and my wife's junior sister, Barrister Eme Ukpong, were childhood friends back in Leeds. There were inseparable such that my late parents in-law had to bring both of them back to Nigeria ahead of the return of the parents of Elizabeth.

Testimonies of her good heart, giving spirit, gentleness, empathy, life of sacrifice, etc abound. In her career in banking and the media, she left clear footprints.

Earlier in the year, she had notified me of the burial of the remains of the late mum in Calabar due to Covid lockdown with the aim of having a reception later. It was therefore a shock to come across the Facebook post on her funeral service a few days back.

Eccles 7 has some words of encouragement for all of us. She left a good name behind. She touched a lot of lives. And we have taken note that it is better to go to the house of mourning than the house of feasting so that the living should remember that no one has a permanent residence here on earth. We will take turns to leave this earth. Eternity is real.

May we be comforted by the sweet memories of her great life on this side of eternity.

For: Aniefiok and Udeme Ukpong

Dearest Aunty Lizzy! Its sad, really sad that you are gone in the physical. But I know you will remain a special angel for all the loved ones you have left behind. You were such a hardworking woman, with courage and fear of God. I've no doubt that you have earned yourself a place in heaven. Adieu beloved cousin, till we meet someday in God's glory.

Mrs Amkpa was a good friend and colleague. As an alumnus of CEIBS we worked together on several projects and I remember her smile and laughter. She took things easy and always had a joke to lighten the mood. She will be greatly missed and I pray God comforts her family

What can I say Lizzy as you were affectionately called although I preferred calling you Elizabeth.
You were indeed a dear and close friend to my twin but you also embraced me as a friend. I will always cherish the times we spoke and when you sent me the “ Naija jokes”.
You came to see me on your way to Zambia for our birthday in June of 2019 and gifted me with birthday presents that I did not expect. It was such a pleasant surprise!! That was the kind of person you were, always giving and blessing others.
What a beautiful Soul and will deeply miss you.It feels so unreal writing this.I will forever keep the sweet memories we shared in my heart.
Rest on my dearest Sis, till we meet again.
From the other Twin

CONDOLENCE MESSAGE


Dear Brother Amkpa and Family

With a heavy heart, we the entire class of '89 deeply commiserate with you and Family on the sad and painful demise of your dearly beloved wife and mother, Mrs Lizzie Amkpa

We received the sad news of her premature exit with grieve, though death is certain to every mortal, the loss of someone so dear as your beloved spouse and loving mother is very painful as she is irreplaceable.

Late Lizzie Amkpa (nee Elizabeth Ekaete Akpan) was our colleague and coursemate in the department of Communication Arts, University of Uyo from 1985-1989. She was quiet, unassuming, loveable and easy-going person. The news of her death came as a shock, particularly to some of us who had no contact with her since graduation. By our last count before 27th June 2021, she was one of us on this part of eternity, but the wicked hand of death snatched her from us. So sad that Lizzie's left us.

We cherish all the moments and memories we shared together during our school days. We have indeed lost a friend, colleague and sister. Please know that our hearts and prayers are with you and family at this period of grief.We join other members of the family to bid Lizzie eternal farewell. May the good Lord grant her soul rest and sooth the pains associated with her exit.

Enjoy your stay with your creator till we meet to part no more.

Class of '89 set

The first time I met you, I had just been invited for the first time to the LFF church by Sister Joyce. After service, you walked up to me where I sat and spoke to me so nicely with a steady smile on your face. You asked about my well-being, and before the conversation ended, you slipped some crisp Naira notes into my hand and said “buy yourself some lunch”. What you didn’t know was that I had no money on me save for the money that would have been able to pay my fare back home. You were an instrument God used to prove some things to me that day, and a silent but deep love for you grew in my heart from then on. You consistently impacted my life with your wisdom, tutoring, kindness, smile, and encouraging words, not to mention the material things. You were just different in your gentle ways and to know you was to love you.
Losing you is a huge loss that still feels surreal. To say I’d miss you is putting it mildly because you are forever engraved in my heart.
You were indeed a candle full of light, and I pray that we meet again where there will be no fear of death.
Sleep well, my dear Aunty.

Lizzy, Your demise is heartbreaking. It was difficult for me to believe that you are gone! You were a very good person.

The first and only 1-2-1 I had with you was magical and highly impactful. I and my daughter benefited from your advice. You shared information and contacts freely. They have really been of help to my business as well. You even promised a second 1-2-1 after COVID!

Lizzy, I am better for having met you. Though you left this world but not my heart.

Your warmth and Enthusiasm at the BNI meetings will be greatly missed. Your memories lingers on sis.

May you be as blessed in the next life. Rest In Peace Lizzy.

Dearest Liz,
It's still a blur that you are no more with us. I was really hopeful, praying that the Lord would hear and answer all our prayers, but I guess He couldn't wait to have you with Him. I look at pictures of you smiling/laughing and I smile because that is typical of you. That is how you will be remembered. Your laughter still rings in my ears. May the Lord comfort and console all those you have left behind. Rest in peace dearest sister and friend. You are sorely missed.
Posted by Joyce Akabogu on July 13, 2021
You were cheerful, youthful, without airs, fashionable and sooo emotionally intelligent. You listened more than you spoke.

I'll always remember your vivacious smile.

Rest in eternity with your maker dear Lizzy

Dear ma’am,
You lived a life of impact. I remember the last time I saw you in FCMB Sanusi Fafunwa and you were all about what you do best - encouraging and cheering up. You encouraged me to continue to be the best I can. I appreciate you and pray the Lord console your loved ones.
Sleep well ma’am.
Posted by Sylvester Amkpa on July 8, 2021
Mummy Lizzy, your life made an impact on me and humanity for eternity. My words fail me but your memory consoles me. I looked forward to telling you so much when we meet again sometime this year but God had another plan for you. I know heaven is rejoicing they gained an angel but here on earth, we miss you so much Mummy. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Amen

My dear Aunt Lizzie! I don't even know where to begin from. But i do know for sure that you played a major role in my life from my teenage years into adulthood.. You tutored me, prayed for and with me, you helped me get my very first job with Multi choice. I moved to Etisalat and you were active helping me achieve my targets and loading airtime and data you didn't need, introducing me to your friends to help me meet my target.
My wedding came, you were still so active ensuring preparation went on smoothly and contributed hugely towards my wedding.
I remember the days I just call you to gist and then you tell me to come spend the weekend with you.... those were days I can't forget in a hurry because I get to leave with at least three of your fancy shoes. Phew! You were such a giver never expecting anything in return.
You will be sorely missed Aunt Lizzie, a Diva and Fashionista who truly loved and served God without holding back.
Good night Aunt Lizzie till we see again on the resurrection morning. Love you pieces.

Sis Lizzy, I can’t believe you’re gone. I had no clue when we chatted few months ago.

You were such a kind heart, always willing to help. You shared your life so willingly with others. Though we miss you, we know You are with Jesus and those who have gone on before. Thank you for being a great Friend and Sister.

REST IN POWER

In the short period i knew you Lizzy, you were so magnanimous. I remember the first time we spoke one on one, you gave me concise advise on my business, and inside me i was marvelled that someone had took interest and precious time to meditate about my business and even in our discussion she had spoken to somebody regarding my business...wow..that was a rare quintessential love trait. This really endeared you to my heart. I am glad i had the priviledge of knowing you Lizzie.
So caring, so selfless, so amiable. You will never be forgotten....May your angelic soul find peace and rest in the Lord's bosom. Sleep well sweet sister.

Lizzie Dearie,
It is quite difficult to write a tribute to a friend and a sister of over thirty years! Our relationship was beyond friendship. We were a family and the news of your demise was very devastating to all.

You stayed strong and determined all through the sickness. Yes, you fought the battle with all your might until your last breath.

Well we cannot question God, because God had better plans for you, He loves you more than we do.

Lizzie was indeed a kind and generous soul, always reaching out to people. She was a “dangerous giver” especially for God’s Kingdom work, never tired of sowing seeds.

My friend was a virtuous woman. She was a loving, caring and wonderful mother to her children and husband.

She was committed and dedicated in all she did, no wonder she excelled and was outstanding in her career.

Lizzie my darling, it is painful to say goodbye. It is said, “a true friend is never truly gone, their spirit lives in the memories of those who loved them”. Yes! You will always be in our hearts.

Rest in the bosom of the Almighty God, my beautiful friend and sister.

Boss like no other!
Words fail me! I'm deeply hurt! I've cried my eyes out, refusing to believe that you passed on but slowly I'm beginning to accept that I won't hear your voice nor see your beautiful, ever smiling face again. We may not heal from this loss completely but we will learn to live with it.

I remember how it all started, we believed you would pull through because you were a fighter and so optimistic. Ma, you fought but God knows best!

I'm most grateful to have met you, to have worked with you, to have been loved by you ( that love extended to my family). You loved me like your daughter and impacted me, even in a short while. I'm glad I shared your last days on earth with you. You were such a force to reckon with! You have touched my life in a tremendous way, I lack words to express it. You had such great plans for us, you had even greater passion in identifying potentials in people and helping them grow and soar. God sent you to this world to touch and change lives and my greatest joy is that you fulfilled every bit of it! I take solace in that.

My dear beautiful, selfless, vibrant, stylish, caring, prayerful, adorable and witty boss! Always fun to be and work with, a goal getter! No wonder I became drawn to you so soon. I love you and miss you dearly. I will cherish every moment we shared till we meet again. I pray for grace and strength to accomplish what you started. Indeed you lived, you loved, and you fought a good fight and won.

It’s so hard to say goodbye but I know Heaven gained an angel.

Rest on Elizabeth Amkpa, till we meet to part no more.

.....Mercy.

My dearest sister Liz, words cannot explain your love for me and my family you came,you saw and you conquered may your sweet gentle soul rest in perfect peace ️.

Another leaf has fallen, another soul has gone. The tide rises and it also falls. I had an amazing aunt, one who never grew old. Death has no dominion so may there be no sadness of farewell, for she lives forever more in God’s eternal light. I can’t shed tears that she’s gone but i can smile because she lived. “Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain. But a woman that fears the Lord, she shall be praised.” Not how did she die but how did she live. Aunty Lizzie had no wands or wings but knew what to do to make dreams and wishes come true. To my favorite aunty, may the wind always be at your back. I think of you with love everyday. Forever, now and always.

My greatest cheerleader Elizabeth Amkpa, I called you Boss not because it's a title but because of the impact your leadership delivered at every step of the way.

Boss this one hit me real hard!! with you not available to reassure me that everything will be alright. Boss am still trying to put myself together but I must confess it's been very tough for me, your boyfriend Giant and your grandchildren.

Lizzie!!!!My Boss turned Bestie, big sist, mother, closer than family.
We met in 2013 when you interviewed me to join your team and immediately we were hooked.
You are a true Leader with proof of touch Notch leaders you groomed in the Corporate world.

You faith in God is beautiful, admist your pain you still smiled and gave so much laughter few days before you transitioned. Thank you for insisting I see you the day before your trip to UK, we agreed on the victory song and dance for thanksgiving service, always a beautiful moment with you.

You know I love you super big, am sorry I havent celebrated you enough before your maker called you up, you were always giving Boss, everyday I dress up there is one thing to remind me of my darlyn bestie. I have got jobs I didn't apply for, I have attained positive unimaginable heights courtesy Elizabeth Amkpa.

I can't believe I will be writing this at this time in our lives, but I take solace in your impact in numerous lives across the globe.

Rest on Oh Soldier of Christ!

A Life well lived is a precious gift,
of Hope and Strength and Grace,
from someone who has made our world
a brighter, better place

It’s filled with moments,
Sweet and sad with smiles
and sometimes tears
With friendships formed
and good times shared,
and laughter through the years

A life well lived is a legacy,
of joy and pride and pleasure
A living, lasting memory
Our grateful hearts will treasure

Rest in peace

Lizzy, our dear wife and sister, while thanking God for the life you lived, we take solace in the fact that you shared that beautiful life in Christ with us. Didn't know so much was going with you the last time we spoke until bros AB told me tonight yet you were still filled with mirth and laughter; same that you exuded in Calabar years ago when we came for your hand. What a beautiful soul! Lizzy, this candle defies the wind.....Adieu, till we meet to part no more.

I was actually looking forward to welcoming you then the news of your departure hit me like magic. I sat for a while and couldn't say a word. All that played in my head was your voice, the funny way you called my name. That i will miss you is an understatement. Age wasn't a barrier for us we spoke about everything from business to our everyday life drama. I will love to celebrate your life and the measure of its worth and every single life you touched while you were on this earth.
I am paying my last respect
to thank you for your love and all the memories i hold dear.
It’s been a privilege to have known you..
And i will carry you in my spirit
Until we meet up once again continue to sleep in peace.️️️

Dear Mrs Elizabeth Amkpa, my client turned sis. The Chief Responsibility Officer herself.

Hmm! where do I start from? The video of our last meeting in my office keeps playing over and over in my head. You were full of life on that day. We talked, laughed and discussed business. I never imagined it would be the last but who I my to question God.

Lizzy, you were such a selfless person, eager to help others achieve their dreams. Indeed, It was a great pleasure meeting you.

You made impact sis. Yes u did. It is not how long but how well you lived so I celebrate you.

Rest on Lizzy and God bless your soul

It is with heavy heart that I write this tribute. However, I take solace in the fact that you are resting in the Bossom of our Lord and Savior- Jesus Christ. I can testify that of a truth you served God and you blessed humanity.

You were a Leader and a mentor. You impacted uncountable lives. Today and beyond, numerous beneficiaries of your kind gesture will continue to thank God for your life. I was a major beneficiary of your benevolence and leadership. You discovered the potential in me and you developed it beyond my imagination.

I pray that the Almighty God will grant your family and we your followers the fortitude to bear your sojourn. Ma, I can say that of a truth, you lived a fulfilled life. Adieu Ma.

Your death is one of those times one is tempted to ask God why? You were God's gift to humanity. I remember during the peak of Covid-19 and my business was at a standstill, you were my encourager. You supported me fully in my diversification idea. All the way from Victoria Island, you sent your driver a number of times to my abode to collect my products to sell to friends and colleagues until the illness took hold of you. Infact Lizzy, you are unforgettable. You will live in my heart until the ressurecttion morning when we shall meet to part no more although it is difficult to say goodbye for now. May your gentle soul continue to rest in peace and God console and protect the family you left behind in Jesus' Name. Amen.

It was a gift to know you Mummy as i affectionately called you. You said i was your daughter the 1st day we met. You loved me for reasons best known to you. You were such a loving and Kind person inside out.I wish i had called you when i thought of you a few weeks ago. Was still waiting for you to visit Ghana. You were a special person who’s light we lost far too soon. For once in my life i can't seem to find words to describe your loss. Goodbye my Beautiful Mum Elizabeth. A rare gem you were.

Sweet Lizzy,
To say that we will miss you will be an understatement, but we know you are resting now.
I still can’t believe I am writing this about you. Your beautiful laughter and the joy you spread, our sweet Lizzy! Our hearts are heavy now but we know you won’t want us to mourn like them that have no hope. Heaven gained an Angel, your WELA sisters love you and will miss you, You lived a life of impact and we celebrate the woman that you were. Sleep now my sister.

Sweet mama, as I fondly called you. A great leader, ever smiling, ever bubbly, always with a word of encouragement and a drive to create a positive impact at every given opportunity (even in pain!).
On that fateful day, had a strong urge to call and check on you as I had earlier promised. Eventually called, it went to voicemail and so left a message at 4.31 to say I would call again soon.
Soon..... never happened as hours later got the sad news! I will miss you sweet mama. Rest in peace and I pray for God’s comfort over your family.

Ufan Ima,

The plan was for you to travel out for better care and later return for an awesome healing thanksgiving to God Almighty. But today, through our grief, we’re raising a thanksgiving to God for your very impactful life here on earth.

I’m soooo glad I made that last 2-day trip to visit you in lagos. You and your dear hubby spoke so much about how the worst was over. You and I then tried to catch up on so much, through it all, you asked how our ‘old girls’ (FGGC Calabar ‘83 set) forum was doing and I replied that a few people had reached out to inquire of your whereabouts, having not heard from you in a while. Your reply was that they shouldn’t worry, you’d be back soon. But here we are…

The day before your departure from Nigeria, I came with the meal you’d ordered. Your beauticians were there too and it was such fun. I was feeding you, your manicure and lashes were being done - all at the same time. We were literally bumping into one another in our bid to shower you with attention. The medical staff on duty seemed amazed at how much love and goodwill you attracted. Even with them, I noticed how easily you threw banters. You were just a natural ‘connector’ a truly special one.

You were accomplished, yet authentic; no airs, no frills. Fiercely loyal, funny, witty, strict and yet so kind. Simple but extremely discerning. A great problem-solver and dependable friend.

The news of your passing really hit me hard; I’m just beginning to accept the reality and can only imagine the impact on your family. The last time I called to speak with you, I was told you were resting. How I long to hear your boisterous laughter again!!! My comfort is that you lived well and are enjoying your Heavenly Father’s reward. I’ll hold your memories close and forever cherish the many special times we we had together - From devouring your mum’s delicious afang soup with you and your sister, Angela, on visiting days back in boarding house, to the numerous things we did together as adults.

Adieu my dear friend. Rest on till we meet again.

I love you; I miss you.

Your Ufan Ima,
Ekaete

Dear Sister Lizzie,I received with great shock the sad news of your demise but consoled by the fact that you lived a Christian life by touching the lives of all that you came across.

As a great student of communication,you are well reputed to have pushed and aided the distribution of affordable cable TV systems to virtually all Nigerian homes for the last 1 decade.

When the history of cable-tv distribution in our nation is written-Lizzie Amkpa shall always be remembered.

May God bless your kind soul and grant your family the fortitude to bear your absence

Rest in peace great motivator and mass communication expert.

Dearest Elizabeth Amkpa aka "Boss Lady". Most people have no clue how the name came about - our secret. I Miss you Boss, cried like a baby when hubby called to tell me about your passing. You were a soldier on earth and now a soldier with the LORD. You were instrumental to my career growth - kept prodding me to keep moving.....Joe never settle for less..
You cared genuinely for my family.... I remember how you promised to attend my daughter's matriculation at Pan Atlantic University....we made plans.
Boss you touched many lives dearly.
Elizabeth was very passionate about SALES.....I don't know how many Bosses that would call you at 2am to share there sales thoughts and demand for a presentation by 8am...the Boss Lady did.
My Boss would always want the best from her TEAM.
Elizabeth Amkpa was not just a Boss, she was a Mentor, Friend, Sister.....we also had our bad days... and after that, she will give you the silent treatment. As a member of the TEAM, when the Boss decides to give you the silent treatment seek council - Kapa.
My Family and I will forever Miss You.
The famous...07034001273 will not be calling no more.
Rest in Peace Boss.

Dear Auntie Lizzy,

I remember long time ago when you used to visit when I was in my teens and you used to talk to us and also that one visit in University with advice and encouragement.

Little did I know you would be there to give me the ladder to my career path.
I thought we still had more time with you and I kept making plans for the future with you in it.
You were so full of life and still had Enough love to give. You were always ready to help and encourage many. I remember your words of advice and encouragement in regards to my life and career. You carried me along and taught me the ropes on career advancement......
You showed me how to give and always lend a helping hand. One of your many quotes was "A worker is worthy of his wages".

Thank you for touching my life and giving me the amazing opportunity of getting to know you better.

I will miss you.

Heaven has gained an Angel.
Rest well Auntie.......Till we meet again to part no more.

Madam lizzie , my boss my mentor. Words fail me at this time even when one of the things you taught me was to always speak up no matter who is in the room. You gave me my first job and not just giving me a job you tutored me all through my journey. When people saw a boy from the streets just privilege to go to university you saw a man full of potentials . You taught knowing a man would get you that thing you want but wont keep you there hence self development would. I discussed every job i get with you and you look at me with that motherly smile of yours which always tells me well done.
You encourage me everytime even when far from targets.
You were a true leader and mother you used the rod as much as the carrot.
I promise to achieve the set goal in the set time ma..
We lost one but am assured heaven welcomes one..
Adieu the boss lady herself
My wife would ask have i spoken to madam when she does not hear me talk about you in a while.
My daughter still has that first year gift you got her when you travelled.

I miss you my leader my mentor...
God would be with the family left behind.

It hurts that i cannot pick up my phone to call you and gist, it hurts i will never ever see your face again. You impacted my life in many ways, you wẹre selfless, never too busy to listen, a mother, a Boss, a friend. I love you Boss and will miss you greatly.

One of the most important thing in life is being able to discover and fulfil our purpose in life. I don’t think there is anybody you came across that you didn’t touch positively. You are a definition of love, generosity, kindness and it was unconditional and spread across board.

In the short time I knew you, I am so grateful I met you. Thank you for everything, you will be sorely missed, but our consolation is the fact that you lived a good, exemplary life and you are now in a better place. God will comfort your family and everyone you left behind.

We all live through life with multitudes passing through and few standing out.

Madam Lizzie is one of them for her passion, love and selflessness towards people around her.

She has been a kind friend and helped walk me through a tough phase of my life. I will forever remember her kind words, chats in the office, fellowships and more...

I have no doubt she's gone to a better place.

My prayers are with the loved ones she's left behind.

Madam Lizzy as we fondly called you, you were a rare gem who came, saw and conquered! You touched lives and transformed many into champions. You will forever be remembered as one who got us on our toes to scale up our game at the advent of super dealership in Multichoice. Your legacy is indelible! We will without doubt miss you greatly but we take solace in the fact that you are resting peacefully in the blossom of your maker. Adieu madam Lizzy!

I was shocked beyond belief when I learnt of your passing.

I remember like yesterday the day we met for the first time when I came to Lagos. We became good friends straight away. Your faith, determination, selflessness, maturity and persistence inspired me so much. Working with you was so easy and even after we stopped being colleagues, you remained a good friend and confidant. I... read more

Dearest Lizzie ❤️,

The Good Lord blessed us with your beautiful heart, humor and love. My heart is sore, I’m thankful for all the memories we built in the short space of knowing you, you came to South Africa in 2017 and stole our hearts. We became fast friends and you opened your heart to me so generously that I am here writing a tribute as a friend and not a colleague.

You touched my life in many... read more

My Friend and Sister, I’m at a loss for words…Heaven has gained an amazing Angel.

I’m going to miss you terribly, our silly late night chats, all the advise you’ve given me and the role you’ve played in shaping my life. I promise to make you proud.

You were the highlight of every trip to Lagos,, because you were always there - I’m going to miss your snoring and out late night snacks in bed, to name a few.

Fly with the Angels, love you always.

Hmmmmmm! This is unbelievable but we have been taught to give thanks in all things.

I've never met someone who loved and protected her people like you - Mother hen. A true lover, giver, cheerleader, encourager, ever smiling beautiful soul.

The last time I saw you, you were so excited telling me about Maureen's new job. People's progress gives you joy - such an amazing woman. May the almighty God... read more

Aunty Liz (as I always called you), you always had a way of making things easy for everyone. Your faith level challenged me greatly as nothing ever bothered you not even death.

You were the very first friend my wife introduced to me when we were courting as "her childhood friend". You remained a true sister and friend for the past 28 years. Ever so faithful and steadfast you were.

Lizzie, I am still very much in shock. To think that we spoke not too long ago, you were your ever bubbly self, laughing off as I teased in our usual manner of speaking. You were an amazing friend, specially endowed by God to love, care and respect people and you were such an excellent nurturer.

Your words were never without smile. I dont recall ever seeing you upset or with a frown on your face, I always wondered if anyone had the capacity to get you upset. Words fail me to express sorrow because... read more

Ever-Smiling Madam Lizzie

My Boss, Leader, Mentor.

You touched many individuals/families. You discovered many talents including myself.

You helped me see my self-worth, my strength, you believed in me even when no one gave me an opportunity!

"When I think of the word 'stand to be counted' I think of Madam Lizzie"

You left some wonderful memories that will never fade from my heart.

A beautiful soul will never be forgotten...

I pray for vitality and longevity for each and every one of us (Lizzie’s Team Worldwide) so that we live our destiny fully according to God’s plan for our lives. Amen 

God Almighty shall be with your children, your husband (I called him Dad, Good man) and extended family. Amen

Rest in Peace Boss!

Aunty Lizzie,

I will miss you. You were such a kind heart and so so sweet. Your love and warmth to me, i won’t ever forget.

No more pain, now in Heaven, resting with your maker!

I pray for Sir Abraham and your children, for continued strength from God and comfort of the Holy Spirit in JESUS Name, Amen

❤️

Words cannot fully express how you have touched our lives in many ways.

Your kind heart is golden and your leadership, legendary. I am forever grateful for everything you did for me and my family.

With tears rolling down my chin, I know you are in the bosom of the Lord. Rest in peace Boss

Audacious and vivacious Elizabeth,

That is how l choose to remember you, not as Madam Lizzie my boss, because from my boss you became my friend, big sister, Bible study partner and more.

Around my house there are things that remind me of you, from dresses to Ankara fabrics, lipsticks, skincare products, jewellery, perfumes, books, even spices, but your generosity was just one of your many virtues.

You were wise and welcoming. You celebrated people and weren't threatened by anyone's success. You were an optimist and maximalist to the core, my "Go big or go home" boss.

I have cried a little but l am not devastated because of our last phone call, and most importantly, because "there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

Rest well, daughter of God!

Dear Lizzie,

I am in shock, it’s impossible to think that your energy and love is no longer with us. You were already so gracious, tough as nails but with such a soft heart. Thanks to you I got my first proper facebeat in Lagos, what memories I will cherish from my time with you. I pray for strength and comfort for your loved ones, I can only imagine the loss they are feeling. Thanks for always checking in, you are missed and the world is poorer place with you gone.

Rest In Peace Madam

Dearest Lizzie,
It hurts to know that I will never speak to you again or enjoy your welcome into your home. You were a friend for all times and you will remain special to me. May our good Lord accept your soul into his Bossom and grant your family the fortitude to bear this loss. Adieu my friend. Alas, it's time to say goodbye. Rest in perfect peace ❤️.

You have left a huge gap and I can only pray that the Lord will keep the family you left behind. Till we meet again on the other side...

Dear Abraham Amkpa & lovely children,

Please receive the comfort of the Holy Ghost for this great loss at this time. What a time to depart?

Our Lord Jesus Christ never fails so we are confident that He will show His unfailingly love, faithfulness and awesome deeds of righteousness to make the journey ahead easy for all of us.

Elizabeth and my wife's junior sister, Barrister Eme Ukpong, were childhood friends back in Leeds. There were inseparable such that my late parents in-law had to bring both of them back to Nigeria ahead of the return of the parents of Elizabeth.

Testimonies of her good heart, giving spirit, gentleness, empathy, life of sacrifice, etc abound. In her career in banking and the media, she left clear footprints.

Earlier in the year, she had notified me of the burial of the remains of the late mum in Calabar due to Covid lockdown with the aim of having a reception later. It was therefore a shock to come across the Facebook post on her funeral service a few days back.

Eccles 7 has some words of encouragement for all of us. She left a good name behind. She touched a lot of lives. And we have taken note that it is better to go to the house of mourning than the house of feasting so that the living should remember that no one has a permanent residence here on earth. We will take turns to leave this earth. Eternity is real.

May we be comforted by the sweet memories of her great life on this side of eternity.

For: Aniefiok and Udeme Ukpong

Dearest Aunty Lizzy! Its sad, really sad that you are gone in the physical. But I know you will remain a special angel for all the loved ones you have left behind. You were such a hardworking woman, with courage and fear of God. I've no doubt that you have earned yourself a place in heaven. Adieu beloved cousin, till we meet someday in God's glory.

Mrs Amkpa was a good friend and colleague. As an alumnus of CEIBS we worked together on several projects and I remember her smile and laughter. She took things easy and always had a joke to lighten the mood. She will be greatly missed and I pray God comforts her family

Such an inspiration to me

Mummy Liz, 
i didn’t know you will leave so soon but it’s okay. The times I’ve spent with you were moments I cherished so much. You were my ginger when the assignment became overwhelming. You were my inspiration when I look out for successful women.

I call you Queen Mother cos you had so much to share with the I Am Rainbow initiative for women across borders. Again the little times I spent with you are become flowers inside the vase of my heart. You sleep and I know when you see again on Resurrection morning, i will hug you tightly again with kisses on your face. Thank you for your exemplary life 

My Beloved Sister
