A Tribute to my Beloved Grandma:

There is a saying whuch says that life is not about the amiubt of breath that you take but instead about the moments that take your breath away. I am proud to say that my grandma had both in her 74 years of life.
My grandma was strict yet loving. She could be shiuting at you this minute and ask you how you are in the next. When I was young I used to be scared because whenever I saw her, she always shouted at me for one reason or another mostly because I was incredibly slow at everything but now that I'm grown, I remember her being very supportive no matter what my issue was. When I think of my grandma, the first memory that comes to mind is the one where she taught me how to make stew over the phone.
All I really want to say is that I love you grandma and I really hope you knew that.

Mummy, the news of your passing was such a shock, I had visited the hospital a couple of days earlier and heard you were responding well to treatment. Being told two days later that you had transitioned was very shocking and totally unexpected. You were a great mother and a wonderfully self-sacrificing grandmother. I will never forget how well you cared for your Solarin grandchildren through whom I got to know you. Your memory will forever be cherished ma.

Proverbs 10:7 “The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.”

I thank God for the purposeful life you lived, Mama Uju. You positively impacted the lives of so many, especially those of your godly children. While it is sad to learn of your exit to glory, one finds immense consolation in knowing you are in a far better place where you shall never again experience pain and suffering. Hallelujah!!!

My heart goes out to my dear friend and sister, Uju, and the rest of the family. May the Lord of all comfort mend your broken hearts and cause His peace to flood your hearts and minds at this very difficult time.

It is well by the mercy of God! Ndonu!

Quiet, peaceful, soft spoken, yet great in many ways, a beautiful teacher per excellence. Mama Uju, aunty m, what a rude shock, I will need help to deal with this.

You impacted my life so much right from my school cert to high school in Enugu. You were a great mum, loved all of us equally and made sure I came out with a great result that period. I am eternally grateful to you which is the reason I visited you each time am in Enugu and you made each visit a memorable one. Thanks for all the care, am grateful to God that I was able in my little way to say thank you for all you did during my school days, your were nice even with your rough path with life because of the early demise of your husband, my great uncle VINCENT(OSHA) and the family challenges that raged, you kept a good disposition even with all the disappointment from people who should say the truth and stand by it, you took it all yet forgave them; oh well 'N' uwa ka ogaebi' .

My dearest aunty you fought a good fight of faith and now you rest with your maker, we are all proud of you Ojinwayoo aga NNE m.

My last visit to you in Enugu before the ITO OGBO you were dancing with joy when I presented your uniform, you thanked God that my parents will be part of the celebration and prayed that God will grant you good health to be part of the celebrations, little did I know that it was going to be your last visit to Obosi. When you finally arrived Obosi, we went for our in- laws wake/ burial and you were looking strong only for me to check on you a few days later and I realized that you were sick, you told me it was your normal health issues and you had your routine medications so I left only for me to take food to you on the ITO OGBO evening since you couldn't make it to the celebrations and I was told that you haven't been out since morning; that was when I insisted that the door should be forced open before you eventually came out; that was the beginning of this painful journey that has left me shattered. I took you to hospital and you responded well to treatment, you were strong to even make the journey to Lagos for further treatment without help and you promised that you will be fine soon; aunty m odizifu mma? you left without a word on a journey we started and believed God together that you will pull through. Well, my consolation is that you knew your LORD AND MAKER JESUS CHRIST, lived a decent Christian life which was great and eventful. I am sure you have gone to be with The LORD.

Goodnight Abadagu, Mama UJU Ezigbo mmadu, kachifo.

We will meet on the resurrection morning Aunty m.

A tribute to my treasured Grandma:

I just lost my beloved grandmother who passed away on 17th March 2021 after a brief illness and I will miss her terribly.
She was one special lady and the loss of her is felt deeply by many, especially me even though she lived a full life.

The love of a grandma is unique. God must have given grandmothers to us to liven up our lives, to make our lives more complete, to make us well rounded and better human beings. She played a big part in my childhood and I can remember so many times her cooking for us and also teaching us Mathematics or English or even assisting us with our assignments when we come back from school as little kids. and tasting the dishes. She taught me a lot about love and the meaning of family.. She has never been just ‘my grandmother’, but my guardian, my friend and my inspiration.

Still, we can’t believe my lovely Grandma was taken away from us . We will miss our Grandmother, but her spirit and strength, lives on in each of us and in the lives that she touched. She lives on in me and in all those who have been touched by the love, strength, conviction, wisdom, and beauty of her soul.

Love you grandma – You truly were a special, special woman! You may have passed on, but your memories would always live on within us. Thank you for your sacrifices, your care and concern, your love and everything that you have done for me. Wherever you are, I know you are in a much better place. I will be forever grateful and thankful that you are my ‘grandmother’.

Rest in Peace Grandmother...we will never forget you and
we will always love you forever...

Grandma, from my beginning until your end,
You were by my side, my first best friend.
I never expressed it when you were here
Though my love and admiration were sincere.
Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you.
You taught me more than I ever knew.
You gave me reason to continue the fight,
Saying a better day comes after the night.
Where would I be were you not around?
Likely adrift in the sea of life, drowned.
I am forever grateful for your love,
And I know you’re looking down from above.
