Dear Mom
I didn't know you, but I see the tears on my friend -Joy's eyes each time she remembers your departure. One can only feel this for a true love. She speaks so proud of you. 
May God keep you in His bossom forever.
Goodnight mama.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints! Psalms 116:15

Ma, I may not have met you personally but I know a beautiful, strong, audacious woman whom you raised. Thank you for blessing us with the gift of your daughter, Joy who is a blessing to me and to the Church of Jesus Christ.
There is no gainsaying that you were a loving and caring Mummy to all who met you. Caring not only for your immediate family but for as many people as God brought your way. Our consolation is in the fact that you passed on in the Lord.

The Bible says that “if in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable...1 Corinthians 15:19.
Therefore, we do not sorrow as others who have no hope.

I pray to God that He will comfort and strengthen your family especially your children at this time the way that only He can.

Rest on in the bosom of the Lord Ma until that glorious resurrection morning!!

Sparrows are unique among birds just as Roses are specially given to those that know the value.

MY heart still aches with sadness and tears still flows as i drop this note.
With sincere heart, you showed my family love. I made effort to speak with you on your last birthday but couldn´t reach you.
Words, however put, can´t mend the heartache of your death. May Yahweh strenghten us and your children to carry on till we meet again to part no more. You will always have a special place in our hearts. Rest-on Mummy.

It took me a whole day to come to this reality that you are no more. I still chatted with you a month before. You were a big mummy but very youthful and that was why you were called "digital mummy ". You opened your door to all. May God open the door of paradise for you. And to the family, take heart as you lost a mom and got an angel.

Mummy, the news of your demise came to me as a great shock. Early this year you called me on phone just to know how am fairing and as well asked me to continue to remember your family in prayers.

Very lovely and intelligent woman. God knows the best for you. He brought u into this world and and also took you to heaven at the right time. Though we miss you but I know you are cruising your everlasting life in the bossom of Christ. Nothing to regret or worry about. You left a wonderful legacy on earth which your children are following forth.

My condolences go to the entire family of IGWE ,praying that God should grant them all the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss in Jesus Name

Fare well good mum, keep resting in the bosom of the lord till we meet to part no more.

We love you ever

I never met you ma but I knew you through your son Seth who is in every bit a gentleman and a gentleman could only have been raised by a queen which you were. You will be surely missed. But we are consoled that you are asleep in the bossom of the lord and also the memories of you to keep us warm. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family .

Moommy...the lioness of the Igwe Tribe, a true Amazon, defender of truth and justice..
Hmmmm....I am at a loss for words.
We are yet to recover from your sudden demise.
Why you?
Why now?
After seven eventful months with you in Portharcourt...why now moommy?
Be rest assured that your children will continue in the path you laid for them
Fly safe on the wings of the mother Eagle...
Take your majestically place in the hall of kings and heroes of yesterday.
Regale daddy with stories about Ogechi and his pretty wife n handsome son, of Nnaemeka's sojourn in the land of the white man; of Anna and her beauty, of Nwakaego, Ijeoma, Chimaobim and Daberechi(as you prefer to call her). Dont forget to tell him of how huge most of your grandchildren are now.
Thank you for your gift of love and warmth.
Adieu Ada Ozuzuma, till the roll is call up yonder, when we will meet to prt no more...Adieu

You raised your son so well. He’s kind, compassionate, hard working and determined, traits he learnt from you. He treats women right and is very intelligent. You may have passed on but you have an amazing representative to carry on your legacy. Rest In Peace mama.
