Mummy my patient,as I fondly call you. just for that 24 hours I got to know you to be a strong woman,who never wanted to let go, you told me on the way to the hospital that you will hold on and not let go but a stronger Will took you away. A beautiful rare gem left this sinful world.

TRIBUTE TO BIG MUMMY
Dear Big Mummy, It saddens my heart to believe you're gone. You are one person who has ruled every heart and affected every soul around and outside our home. You were the life of our family and reason for many laughter sessions we had, you watched me grow, moulded me to be a strong, courageous lady, scolded me when I misbehaved. You were indeed a mother to all. I remember how you honoured my matriculation and I was filled with joy. You were part of every stage in my life, I will forever miss the wisdom in your advice. Rest in peace, Mama!

Mummy as I fondly call you, I am still finding it difficult to believe you are gone. You were a mother to me. Your words of encouragements and advise are still fresh in my memory. It's sad you didn't stay long enough with us but we are consoled knowing you have gone to be with your maker....The unquestionable one!

God continue to grant you eternal rest.

You are loved greatly!

TRIBUTE TO MY FRIEND AND MY SISTER MRS ELIZABETH OKOYE.
Death where are thy stings. Lizzy Pèper! That was what I called you. The news of your demise was sudden and devastating to me. I cannot believe that you have left me. I grieve when I recall the sisterly love, the jokes and good times we shared. First in the secondary school: as a classmate and roommate in the hostel and then out of school as my Chief Bridesmaid at my wedding ceremony.
To say that I shall miss you is to state the obvious. I will surely miss you as long as I draw breath of life. Lizzy I mourn your demise but consoled by the fact that your report sheet is fair and white as epitomised by the reaction to the announcement of your death. You professed peace and unity.
Lizzy as you leave and go ahead of me to answer the call of the King of kings, I say " Adieu " darling sister and great friend. I know that this is not a permanent goodbye. May God keep you until we meet again in His eternal Kingdom on the resurrection morning when we'll meet to part no more. DR MRS ANTHONIA NWABUEZE, mni.

My sweet sister!!! as we fondly called ourselves since the day we met. You were a sister indeed so close more than blood sisters. Your sincerity and genuine love endeared you to me. We could share secrets without fear of betrayal. Oh what a shock of your demise just two days after we spoke on phone without saying goodbye. My sweet sister, the vacuum you have created will be hard to replace. Hmmmm! I submit totally to the will of our creator without questions. Rest well my sweet friend and sister in the bosom of our Lord.

They say the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree, and even though I never got to meet you personally, I get to experience your soul through your daughter. I can honestly say you were a good one, one the world will miss and never forget.
Keep resting Ma.
May God bless your soul.
Amen.

My dearest Aunty, fondly known as Aunty Lizzy
You were more like a mom to me. Accepted me into your beautiful home on my holidays as a high school student whenever I returned from the boarding house at Queens’ college, Yaba. My holiday visit then became a tradition that your beautiful house in Mafoluku became my second home. You loved and gave with all your heart. I would forever miss your lovely smile, and sweet and very kind words. I thought I would come pay a surprise visit to you in Nigeria this year, not knowing my conversation with you in January 2021 would be our last together. I’m still in denial about your death because I still hear your voice saying “My darling “ to me whenever we talked on the phone. Heaven has definitely gained an Angel. Adieu my beautiful, kind, self less, loving, generous, sweet aunty and mother figure. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord till we meet to part no more. Love and cherish you forever in my heart.

Dear big mommy
I don’t know how to begin simply because I did not expect you to be gone at this time. I  will remember  you as the strong and selfless woman who took care of everyone around her including myself, and who touched the lives of so many within her time here with us. You were always kind hearted and had genuine interest in giving advice and at times I learned from you by just seeing the way you conducted yourself and I’m beyond grateful to have had you in my life as a mother figure. I will always to look up to you and I know you will always be watching over us even as you are not here. Love and miss you. Orlunma.

You were the definition of a TRUE SISTER AND A STRONG WOMAN. Orderliness and carefulness radiated in all that you did all through my knowing you. Always ready to lend a helping hand. Elegantly beautiful. Very considerate and unassuming. Am yet to completely come to terms with this but with time, it will be real. Your love for your daughter was deep and overwhelming.

I pray that Jehovah God in His infinite mercies keep and take care of all that you cherished in your life time. You never joked with your prayers and your devotion to our Creator and may the Almighty guide and protect all that you left behind. May the all Powerful God still grant all that you wished, even in death.

Sleep on and Sleep well, Big Mummy

Sis, we will miss you so much. The news of your demise came to us as a rude shock. We did not hear you were sick and all of a sudden, the sad news came.

Well, God knows best. We pray and know that right now, you are resting in our Lord's bosom.

We ask Him to console all those you left behind and grant us the courage, strength and fortitude to bear the loss.

We also pray that eternal rest be granted to you and all other faithful departed, and through the mercy of God, rest in perfect peace, sis.

Good night.

From your cousin Mike Okocha and family

Oh Mama Nkem, I can never forget those days in Mafoluku where you loaded us with your delicacies. You were ever present to ensure all the kids were ok. Your passion for life and your interest in others is what I truly appreciate about you. May you continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord.

My dear Aunty, saying we shall miss you is an understatement. After the untimely death of our mother, not only did you stand for us as a Big Aunty but also as a Mother. Our sweet memories of you shall forever remain green in our hearts. Adieu! Adieu!! Adieu my sweet Aunty Lizzy!!!

Aunty!! Words can't describe what you mean to me. From the first day i opened my eyes you were always there. To feed me, bathe me, cheer me up....a second mother.
I remember how you use to wear those big glasses way back in the eighties.
You were always a positive factor in my life.
You are a gift from GOD and I know you are resting in the peace of God.
I miss you and I wish could have told you more times than ever how much you mean to me.
Rest in peace.

TRIBUTE TO MY DARLING MOTHER

Mummy you were the truest, dearest, more than a mother to me. You were my friend, sister, and also father when I lost dad. You stood alone for 20 years after dad passed on, and only God knows the inner strength you had to come through standing alone.

You were precious a gift from God, so much beauty, grace, love and patience you possessed. You touched my heart in so many ways, your strength and smile even on dark days made me realize I had an angel beside me.

Mummy you heard God’s whisper, calling you home, you did not want to leave me, I saw how you fought with your illness. you loved me so much that you held on tight, until I left your sick bed that fateful night all your strength was gone, and you could no longer hold on. Finally you gave your hand to God and slipped away quietly without telling us bye.
I will forever love and adore you mom for everything you taught me in life. Your death took away joy from our lives but we will hold on to the beautiful memories of times spent with you.

Adieu Mother!
