Rest on Ada Raphael! Everyday, when I ve gist , I pick my phone to dial you but.... the void is enormous. I keep asking myself "why"? Your departure was too sudden, you left without a goodbye, no sign, no warning, no premonition, YOU JUST LEFT.

Emeka will give you updates on all that has happened in your absence when he writes to Dad. In summary, we are holding on. We are doing our best to keep the family fortified in unity.

Someday, I will have the courage to write a proper tribute to you.

You came and left your footsteps in the sand of times.....

Dear mum,
It feels just like yesterday here, our last conversation when u asked me about my mum inlaws health and we talk about so many other pending issue as at then...
I recall vividly that phone call from ogechi in the morning 31 july 2019 around 11am thereabout"ije gdmorn, morning oge..did u hear any news from the village and am like what news? Nothing oh...
Ok they just called me now that mummy arnt feeling too well and shes being taken to the hospital "surprised surprised, l was having a meeting with a client in his office at the airport, at that point upon hearing that mum has being taking to the hospital l just lost concentration immediately during the meeting, had to quickly end the meeting..
Fast forward to the rest of the day we kept trying to reach dee ike the person with u mom on that day all to no avail...
Only for sis nwaka to call me around 9:30 pm thereabout, the tone of that phone call stil ruminate in my head so loud....[ijeoma ijeoma ijeoma mummy don die ] omggggggggg and my phone dropped from my hand to the floor, l tried to contemplate the news but l just couldn't fathom it...
My eyes where wide open from that time til 7am the next morning the 1st of Augus couldn't find sleep....
And ever since then,its being pretty hard leaving without you,not hearing your voice , ur gist,your laughter,your yabbings ooh what a life...
Its being 365days and its just like yesterday,infact that date 31st july is now indelible in my heart of hearts...
Dear mum so many many things have happened since you left us, but l take solace in the fact each time l think about you that you are certainly in a better place where there is no more death nor pain, you lived a good life worthy of emulation, you loved and served the lord with all your heart and all of your resources @ your disposal, you were dogged, very courageous, very outspoken,very easy going, very strong, quick to forgive, very graceful,very endearing.
Dear mum you were everything wrapped up in one package....l thank God I was able to show you love nd care in my best possible way when you were around...
I can keep going on and on but l feel so emotional even writing this tribute, thoughts of you just keeps flooding my mind, spirit , soul and body...
Sometimes, somethings cannot fully be expressed in words but God knows everything...

MAMA, THE LOVELY WOMAN.

Mama was a lovely woman who never hesitated to do good whenever it was in her powers to do so. She was very kind, same kindness I experienced from her children as neighbours.

My heartfelt condolences to the entire family. Although Mama's exit is painful, yet we cannot question her creator who gives and takes at His own will. Mama's life here on earth was outstanding and it's my prayer that the Lord grants her eternal rest in heaven.

Amen.

Adieu Dear Mama. You have been a mother to many. We will forever miss your joyful and gentle nature, words of encouragement and wisdom. You accepted us the way we were.

The inevitable has happened, what can we mere men do?

Our hearts mourn your departure yet we are glad you lived a fruitful and successful life.

Please continue to pray for us as you dwell in the blossom of the Most High God.

May God grant your family the fortitude to bear loosing you.

Rest in peace Mama....Amen

Dear Joy,

It is with deep sorrow and regret that I received the sad news of your mother's passing. This is very sad indeed.

Please accept my deepest sympathy. I am sure she would have made a great impact on you, and your close family. Losses like this are irreplaceable, but we must take comfort in the fact that God has a plan for every one of us, and God loves us all. I pray that God in His infinite mercy will grant you and your family, courage and strength through this difficult time.

May her soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.

The world is sincerely at a loss without you. Sometimes you don't even realize how important someone is to you until they are gone. I was extremely fortunate to have her as an aunt and a mother. She was the kindest person i have ever met, always full of smiles and very cheerful. I always looked forward to seeing you every xmas period when ever we come back home. I pray that God Almighty grants you eternal peace. Rest on Ma

I pray that the Almighty will grant you all the fortitude to bear this , I have never met Mama but working with Joy Igwe her beloved daughter for few years gave me an insight of the kind of person she was . The character and virtues Joy has clearly points to an upbringing by a mother full of wisdom and virtues. I saw Mama through the character and person in her daughter Joy Igwe.  A virtues woman , may her soul rest in peace. Amen

Hmm!
I only met you a few times. The last time I saw you when Dad was in the hospital and I came with Khase. I immediately saw all khase has always spoken about. You are such a great person to know. After Dad passed on. I knew it was not easy for you but you held on. I always watched khase timeline to see that you have gone for visit, Such was wat i was expecting until I looked closely and saw the sad news. Well! I know for sure that you are happy where you are.
In ur little time on earth you really touched lives.

May your gentle soul continue to rest in peace. Amen.

CONDOLENCE MESSAGE FROM THE LORD BISHOP, DIOCESE OF OHAJI EGBEMA, HIS LORDSHIP, RT. REVD. CHIDI COLLINS OPARAOJIAKU PHD. 


Beloved in Christ,

MESSAGE OF CONDOLENCE

I write to convey a deep heartfelt message of consolation by His Lordship, Rt Revd Chidi Collins Oparaojiaku PhD, Lord Bishop Diocese of Ohaji/Egbema, at the news of the death of your mother Late Dame Mercy Igwe, who is a Knight of the Diocese. Honestly, to him, it was a hardnut to crack, trying to assimilate and come to terms with the cause of this abrupt loss. The news came as a bombshell and has continued to trail his mind. Though her demise has left a vacuum, but He completely submits to the will of the Almighty God.

His Lordship recounts the benevolence of your late mother and her late husband having accommodated the Bishop at his coming and released their building to the church to serve as the office. Your late mother has doggedly responded positively to matters of concern and has unremittingly persuaded and corroborated her children to follow suit even after the demise of her husband.

His Lordship takes solace in the fact that she died leaving a legacy for the living to emulate. Kindly be assured that death is not the end of life rather a transition into the eternal journey of life. Here on earth we have sorrow and pain but we all long for a home where there is no night and where hunger and distress, by no means exist.

His Lordship commits you into the gracious hand of God and prays that the Lord grants you and the church at large the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss, till we meet to part no more.

Thanks and God Bless

Yours Sincerely,
Revd Engr. Michael Iroh, Bishop's Personal Assistant.

Tribute to Mama Mercy Igwe

The news of your demise came to me as a shock – it is so unfortunate and heartbreaking that you have to leave us at this time. When I saw your Facebook friend request about a month ago, I said within me “what is mama doing on Facebook” – and I accepted your request. In the process, you sent me your last words “I appreciate you my beautiful daughter” which I replied to not knowing that will be our last conversion with each other in this mother earth. It hurts so bad, but I know that our dear God will give your beloved children and your loved ones that you left behind the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss. Adieu mama Mercy, I love you and will miss you. Rest in Peace in the beautiful bosom of our precious Lord till we meet to part no more….

To a mother who always welcomes you with a warm smile.
I remember when I lost my husband, how you would encourage me to fight and rise admits the challenges. You took my husband and i like your own children.
It's very painful to come to terms with the reality that you are no more. But I'm glad that you knew Christ, so I know you are in a better place.

Your legacy, your children lives on. In them I have found another selfless family.

TRIBUTE TO A VIRTOUS WOMAN
On behalf of my family, I commiserate with the entire family of Late Nze (Sir) J. N. Igwe on the demise of Late Dame Mercy Chinatu Igwe (Nee Ozuzuma) .
We received the sad news of her demise with immense shock which devastated us for some good days. Mum as I usually call her, was a woman decorated by nature with tremendous wisdom, humility, cheerfulness. Cared and loved all the family friends. Highly accommodating and God fearing woman during her life time. A jewel of inestimable value. A great Virtuous woman, an inseparable companion to our Late Nze (Sir) J. N. Igwe, Counselor and friend of all her children.
Mum lived a life worthy of emulation and left her foot prints in the sand of time.
Her painful exit undoubtedly will create a huge vacuum in your lives, but take heart.
I implore the entire family to take solace in the Scriptures : 1Thess 5:18 which says "In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you".
May the Almighty God grant you the fortitude to bear this huge and irreparable loss.

Khase, I know your heart is broken from the death of a loved one but I can hear her saying;

"I'm in a better place where I'm both happy and carefree. I had to go, but I want you to remember all the times we share and try not to feel so sad."

"For we will meet again one day to laugh and play. So dare to put grief aside because I will be waiting for you here, to catch up on the time we've lost."

"Till then, live your life to the fullest and God bless you my son."

AUTOBIOGRAPHY AS WRITTEN BY LATE DAME MERCY CHINATU IGWE AND TO BE PUBLISHED ON THE EVENT OF HER DEATH.

This autobiography was edited by her last child, Seth Igwe, with ALL the original context intact.

I, Dame Mercy Chinatu Igwe was born into the family of Late Mr/Mrs Raphael Ozuzuma of Umagwuru in Mbieri, Mbaitoli L.G.A., Imo State on the 20th of January, 1945.

I began my early education at CMS Primary School in Umuokanne, Ohaji Egbema, Imo State where my parents sojourned and gave birth to me and my siblings. I later returned to my hometown, Umagwuru in Mbieri, Imo State to live with my grandmother, where I stayed back to complete my primary education. I proceeded to furthering my education at Girls’ Secondary school, Egbu and got my G4 certificate.

Lagos was the next port of call for me. In Lagos, I lived with my uncle, Mr. G.N. Onuekwusi. While in Lagos, I got employed as a machine operator with C.P.I (Chasbery Pond International), makers of famous petroleum jelly and other range of homecare products. While in the employ of C.P.I., my ambition and hunger for skill acquisition spurred me to learn typing and shorthand. Afterwards, I resigned from C.P.I., to work as a stenographer which was a very lucrative job role at the time.

I worked as a stenographer until the start of the civil war when I had to leave with my uncle, Late Mr. Onuekwusi to Portharcourt, Rivers State. In Portharcourt, an ambitious young me with a quest for success got a job as an Office Assistant with a private firm. I quit my role as an Office Assistant when the Biafran War began to work as a supervisor to the Caritas/Red Cross society. This singular decision was like a winning move by a chess Grandmaster as it ensured my family back home never lacked supplies all through the famine associated with the Biafran War.

At the peak of the Biafran war, sometime between 1968 and 1969, I had to return to join my parents and siblings at Umuokanne where they were still sojourning at the time. While back in Umuokanne, I met and fell in love with the very charming, handsome, and ebullient Late Mr. Julius Ogaranyaegbulam Nwaisoma (JON) Igwe. We were shortly married. I left with my husband to Lagos where he was based.

Back in Lagos, and because of my record of discipline and work ethics, I sought and got an employment for the second time with C.P.I. which later was rebranded to Lever Brothers PLC. I was employed this time, not as a machine operator, but as the Production Manager. As a Production Manager with Lever Brothers, I did the best in my capacity to see that as many Umuokanne persons as it were possible, were employed. I was in the employ of Lever Brothers until 1985 when the company started going through series of mergers and acquisitions which ultimately led to its rebranding to Unilever Nigeria Limited in 1996.

Life continued for me after Lever brothers as I ventured into a couple of businesses. Businesses like soap making and sales, palm oil production and sales in large drums, wholesale and distribution of Liquor amongst others.

I remained in Lagos with my family until 2002 when my husband and I retired – but weren’t tired –and returned to the village. We afterwards, set up the ‘People’s Bread’ bakery, Umuokanne.

My Late husband and I are very lucky to have been blessed with 7 children – 4 girls, 3 boys – all of which are doing marvelously well in their various spheres of life.

Let my story motivate you and drive you to attain the success that God has preordained for you.

Should you be reading this, I have not died, but yet live with the hope that we would see again when the saints are called up to reign with our king, Jesus.

MOM & ASHLEY

Shared by Yns Dab on August 3, 2020
It's amazing how history keeps repeating itself.over and over even when we think its coincidence.
Ashley was moms' very good friend while she was with us. Before Ashley, it was Miley who she always yabbed as being too small.Ashley...nah! she was big, doesn't back down, always very protective.Infact, I guess these were reasons you loved her.Early last year when Ashley was sick, mom would say " Andy, this your Ashley neva eat o!, what's the doctor saying?" She always looked out for Ashely.Ashley was sick for 2 wks but mom wasnt sick.Ashley could have survived if not mainly for ignorance same as mom,Ashley loved the cold like you.Ashley passed in July this year  and you, last July and it was raining like it did last year when we took her away. The rains just had to come to ensure you had your cold.Mom, words cant be enough.I ask, was there something that wasnt done? Through it all, before that day, you had your utmost wish granted...to go without any stress but we didnt know that meant to go without saying goodbye. Its 1 yr but it seems just like yesterday, every detail is so so vivid. Rest on ma.

MY EVER CARING MUM HAS GONE HOME

Shared by Nancy Ulu on August 31, 2019
Your demise is still too sudden and shocking to me Grandma. Accepting d fact that you're no more is a great difficulty.

 You shouldn't have accepted to follow Him to the land of no return I so despise him cause He doesn't know when to knock at someone's door(Mr.Death) 
The last time I saw you was fun filled. You were looking so fresh, young healthy & strong.
Mummy biologically you're not my mother but ever since the hand of fate brought us together, you've been that wonderful Mum that anyone could ask God for.

How can I forget your caring moments, That night I had to sneak out of your room to go cry out my pains because I was denied admission thinking that God had forgotten me,how you noticed it I can't explain. You left your sleep only to encourage me. Mum those your words of encouragement gave me another reason to try. And all tnx to God I made it. Your calls, love, & promises is still fresh in my memory .I will forever miss you Mummy. Alex &Audrey Misses Grandma

It's too painful for me to bid you adieu Grandma. Goodbye is indeed the saddest word. But then I can't question God He knows the best. I pray your golden soul finds eternal peace in the bosom of our creator until we meet to part no more on that resurrection day.

Adieu my motivator
Adieu NNE Ozuzuoma
Nkechi Bubu will forever miss you.

I vividly recall our first encounter, when I came visiting in the house. You gave me a warm welcome and took a liking to me immediately and I did same to you. Regardless of the age difference, we were able to connect quite well.
From that point, a bond was birthed between us and regardless of what path I towed eventually, our relationship didn't change. 
I still remember our talks; how you always called me "Kelechi nwa m", how excited you always were whenever I called to check on you, plus the blessings you constantly showered on me and how you always ended all of our conversations with "I love you nwa m". You were always interested in my welfare; often asking me how work, academics and life were for me. I was continually awed by your love, care and selflessness.
The last time we spoke, while you were still in PH, you were in perfect health and in high spirits as I've known you to be. 
So when Chima told me on the 2nd of this month that he was afraid I wasn't going to be able to talk to my friend again, I didn't understand. I asked what he meant, and he told me you were no more.  It didn't make sense; still doesn't. Like, how could you, who was so full of life have gone like that; unannounced?
It's disheartening to say Adieu, but our consolation is in the fact that you've gone to a better place. You lived an admirable life. You gave your time, energy and service to the work of God. So, it's time to wear your crown of glory. Keep resting in the bosom of the Almighty.
I'll really miss you, Mom. Until we meet to part no more, farewell Ma.
Your daughter (by choice),
Kelechi Ejiogu.
