"The late Mrs Orieji Ijere was the "mother" assigned to me by the school principal, Miss Wall, of St Catherine's Girls Secondary School Nkwerre. She took care of me as a 'mother' to a 'daughter' in accordance with the school regulations. We were there till the war broke out and we parted afterwards. I last saw her when she visited the bank I worked in, some ten years ago. I never knew that, that would be the last we shall see each other. May her soul rest in perfect peace. Amen."

"A Poem: To Nina's Mother
Remember Me
Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,
But remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt,
and given me relief.

So dry your eyes and remember me,
not as I am now,
but as I used to be.
Because, I will remember you all,
and look on with a smile.
Understand in your hearts,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

As long as I have the love of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

Adieu Mama! Good night sweet mother! we will meet you in the morning. What a glorious morning that will be."
