Aunt Mere, its another October 1 and you are no more and to make matters worse Ada Oshimiri is also no more.- What hearts have to bear- Well we take solace in Romans 14:8 If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Rest on in the Lord

A year later and it still feels unreal. I still remember the trips to Dalston market, the books you bought me and that jumper . . . Aunty I may lack the words, but we know that God will continue to grant you rest in His bosom forever. Rest in peace, we miss you dearly!

"Fresh flowers, dallas bakeries, good food and loads of fun". We certainly had the best christmas holidays growing up as kids. Aunty thank you so much for all the lovely memories. You are sorely missed!! May you rest peacefully in his bossom - Adieu.

My clearest memory of aunty is me sneaking past the bar at Aba sports club and aunty bellowing my name out loud "Keke, come here! how is your mummy etc..." That was aunty. Pretty loud but ever warm. Its been so long since I saw her but the news of her passing hit hard like I'd just seen her yesterday. I'll miss you but you're surely in a better place now so I'm not mad. Take care aunty.

How do I remember Mrs Akwiwu? Vivacious, boisterous, no nonsense, live wire, happy, her deep unforgettable voice & her infectious laughter. She was one of the tough European women who stuck through thick and thin in Aba and remained there....and such women should be celebrated!! God must have realised one of his angels was missing and asked her to get there asap. Rest in Peace.

You were such a wonderful woman and a loving mother to all that came close you. You made your impact while on earth. Your memories will remain indelible. You will be greatly missed...Mama Okem, Lolo Denmark. Rest in the bosom of our Lord.

A beautiful garden now stands alone, missing the one who nurtured it But now she is gone, Her flowers still bloom, and the sun it still shines, But the rain is like tear drops, for the ones left behind, The weeds lay waiting to take the gardens beauty away, But the beautiful memories of its keeper are in our hearts to stay, she loved every flower even some that were weeds, So much love she would p

So much love she would plant with each little seed, But just like her flowers she was part of Gods plan, So when it was her time he reached down his hand, He look through the Garden searching for the best, That's when he found aunty it was her time to rest, It was hard for us who loved her, to just let her go, But God had a spot in his garden, that needed a gentle soul, So when I start m

cont But God had a spot in his garden, that needed a gentle soul, So when I start missing aunty, I remember if I just wait, When God has a spot in his garden, She'll meet me at the gate.

Dearest Aunt This is hard to write and has taken me a month because I seem to breakdown each time I try but had to be written, I just wish circumstances were different and we could sit and talk while you sipped on your black coffee like u always did and I must say real coffee tastes better no other way. Memories of you can’t cease to resurface as they left indelible marks in our lives, countless C

Aunt Merete, Its hard to believe you are gone. I still feel like you traveled and will be back some day. Its hard to think that I will walk down to your house in the village and wont find you to gist with. I will forever be greatful to God for making you part of our family.There were so many fun memories and I would rather think on those ones. RIP
Posted by Ochi Ibe on 26th October 2011
You are gone too soon Aunt Merete Not giving me a chance to say the proper good byes Not even a chance to do what I ought to have done now that things were different you were like a 2nd mother in our house You got on so well with my Mum it is almost unbelievable given that you were not Nigerian let alone Igbo You were really meant for us - Our dear late uncle Chimezie and the whole Akwiwu

My Aunty Meréé,I feel so broken hearted and devastated to write you a love letter you can’t read. Your demise is very painful,we feel cheated. Nonetheless, we thank God for giving you to us in the first place. Have your beauty sleep and rest in the Lord your maker.
Posted by Karen Koetsie on 16th October 2011
Dear Mrs Akwiwu. I never had the honour of meeting you, but I feel like Ive somehow known you through the eyes of Emeka and the many tributes in honour of you. You were indeed an amazing woman. May you rest in the arms of the Angels.
Posted by Francis Ozoji on 16th October 2011
Never met you but felt I knew you. From the Nwanunobis to Okem and to Emeka, you left a huge imprint of yourself and also that of your late husband, whom you’ve gone to re-join. May the good Lord accept you in his kingdom and may your good soul forever rest in peace. Amen.

"Those we love remain with us, for love Itself lives on..." Chin,Okem,Emeka , Ikenna and the entire Akwiwu family, accept my sympathy for your loss. Your mum was a big part of my childhood. She will never be forgotten.

We had a trip all planned out! This is one of those times life really leaves pain in its wake. We had the best of you when you were here and there's just got to be something beyond here! Aunty Merete, I will miss you so much!
Posted by Edna Nwanunobi on 13th October 2011
Death, don't laugh yet. Know this! We brought our Merete's case before God as a family. Your taking her from us is no suprise to Him. He permitted it. So where is your sting? Gone too soon? Yes. Still, since God allowed it, victory is hers and consequently, ours.
Posted by Ohax Akwiwu on 12th October 2011
When I heard u were gone, I heard ur voice in my head say "Ohax stop drinking ur tea with the spoon in ur cup" I'll gladly drink it with 3 spoons in just to see u again. Luv u aunty, but God knows best.

you were there all through my growing years. i remember you with so much passion....you were so sweet. the reality of life is gradually settling in my heart as the parents of my childhood friends pass on ...one after another. Aunty Merete, rest in peace. u remain special to me.
Posted by Chiwunma Akwiwu on 11th October 2011
Dearest Aunty...i really do wish i got to speak to you! You were the 1st person that let me make turkey, rice and stew for you, Uncle Chime and Ohax so many 'Christmases' ago, that alone made me feel 'kitchen responsible'. i love you and miss you, Rest in the Lord. Mamamiya... :)
Posted by Udoka Akwiwu on 10th October 2011
I can't believe I could not say 'Goodbye'. Nonetheless, I'll cherish the memories and Thank God you came to us. You'll live forever in my heart...love Jonji.

It was so nice to see you at my wedding, remembering how lovely you looked; death has done it again! May your soul rest in perfect peacein the bossom of our Lord and I pray that the Lord will console your entire family that you leave behind as they bear this irrepairable loss.
