Tribute to Mama Derrick Our Auntie Pat, Your death came as a rude shock to us all. Your “Ojay” sent you pictures of Ella and Onome the Christmas morning and the response was that you had passed on. We had wonderful memories of you. Coming to spend the summer holidays at your place with our little cousins was something we looked forward to like it was a trip to the UK, even though it was just down the road. From Ohagbon street to Aigbe Davis street. What was uppermost in our minds, or throats, was your wonderfully made dishes. I can say without any fear of contradiction, you made the best curry stew in the world. Your quintessential imoyo (fishy gwogo) and chicken casserole where just delis (like the young lads say these days). Your pet names for us: Ojay, Small Daddy, Ojisperere made us feel special. Small Daddy is now Big Daddy as you promoted him when he saw you last in the UK a few weeks back. He shared his deep thoughts in his heart with you and you both cried together. You constantly called him to make sure he was ok. Thank you Auntie! Your smile was simply amazing and encouraging, saying “it is ok!” We will miss you. But we are consoled that you are in the bossom of the Lord Jesus Christ. Rest in peace until we meet to part no more.

'Mummy in Benin' as you are fondly called, you left when we least expected it, my consolation is that you are resting in the bosom of our Lord. You were a force to be reckoned with, selfless, ever smiling, loving and kind, with an unmistakable, unique voice which could be recognized anywhere. You will sorely be missed. Rest on, till we meet again!

Mrs Orere mom It has been a few days since you traveled on. I don't know how much you were able to see, but we are heart broken, that was the sad day of my life. The 25th of each December will come, and It will take on a new meaning for us. Have a safe trip and we will all meet some day God speed may the angels guide you on your journey. From Mr Bonaventure Obiorah Jr

Mummy how was i to know that your call to me from the boarding gate of MMIA would be your last but alas you knew because when i asked when you would be coming back you said you didn't know yet. If only tears could bring you back, i would cry an ocean. Rest in the bossom of our lord Jesus for you touched so many lives with your beautiful soul. Andy and I will miss you greatly.

Mummy....I would like to honor you here with a brief reflection of the way you always called me lady...hey lady...with a warm and confident smile...not to sound cheeky but those words assisted in shaping the lady i am today. News of your demise was such a hard way for us to end the year 2018...but it's God's plan all playing out and we must therefore accept his will. Rest on Mummy.

Iye International!!! That was my name for you. I didn’t know I would be doing this sort of tribute so soon after my mum’s! You were like a mother to me right from my Uniben days. As soon as I got the news of your passing, My mind went straight to your very busy home in BDPA where we all used to swing by for a nice plate of hot meal and good company. That was always a ‘sure thing’. Iye, to say you had a lot of love to give would be just right. Thank you for your loving words of advise, the tonnes of Novenas you used to send to me. You were very good with Whatsapp messages. I miss them now. I miss you plenty. Meyiwa and Zoe miss you. May your gentle soul Rest In Peace. Amen! Your Chiomalize.

To say that your passing was a shock would be an understatement! I am somewhat in denial, and finding it hard to register in my mind. You were more than a friend to me. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Amen

My lovely and beautiful mother, the moment i received the sad news of your death, my world caved in. My heart was torn into two, one was filled with heartache and pain till now,the other died with you. Sleep eluded me. I cried and lie awake at nights when the world is fast asleep, through the stillness of the dark, alone i take a walk down memory with tears filled my eyes. If i could write a story about you my dear lovely mother, it would be the greatest ever told of a kind and warm heart, a loving and caring mother who had a generous heart of love and gold.Diction fail in providing the right words that would correctly describe your sterling qualities. The images fill my head but my education could not arm with words to say how you are. Mom i could write a million pages yet unable to say just how much you gave yourself,your love, your resouces, your everything, how dedicated you were to caring for your children and others around you, the home you gave to the homeless, your generous smile,your sincere advice and kind words that soothe all troubled souls around you, your profound belief in the Divine Mervy incarnate,, all the same i still cant believe you are dead but i ll manage as you always told me, Ifeanyi dont have mother again, love you and rest in the bosom of the Lord the Divine Mercy incarnate, from Ifeanyi P. Chimsunum .

As a mother myself and a mother in-law to her Son, my daughter and I learnt so much from mummy who treats me as her daughter even as mother in-law to her own Son. From her, we learnt several secrets that have made our relationship exemplary, anchored on God’s grace and foundation. For instance, mummy taught us very early in our Union to avoid the pitfalls associated with exposing our children marriage to third-party influence. Consequently, our two families are so closely-knit that in my daughter, i see mummy's legacy of a home-builder, a peace-maker, a Godsend mother, and a gifted marriage counsellor Mummy epitomized industry, hard work and service. She radiated love and care and touched many lives. While Mummy showered all with love, she never condoned indiscipline or injustice. You will forever Remain in our Heart....RIP . From a Mother in-law to a Mother in-law. Mama Ameze

So sad when I heard the news. You will be remembered for your humility, warmth and kindness. You barely knew me when I came to visit your daughter in law with my baby twins and you volunteered to drop us at home which was quite a distance. You had a smile to greet me when I came visiting your daughter in law, who happens to be my very good friend. We will never forget you. I pray for your family to have the fortitude to bear the loss as you're now with your Heavenly Father Amen.

I still can't believe it. I wish I would wake up and it is all a dream. But, who am I to question God. May your soul rest in perfect peace. We will always love you and never forget you.

Hmmmmm, Aunty pat, this one weak me big time. Even though we called you mama Derrick in BDPA, you were our mum, as you always said to us that we were the daughters you never had. My siblings and I are going to miss your yearly visit to our biological mum in America, we will miss those phone calls just to check up on us, your words of encouragement, the jokes and your smile. When mum called to break the news, she was in tears that I could not even hear what she was saying until my sister called back to say aunty pat just passed away on Xmas day. Oh dear, I cried at work because I was too sure you were going to be very much around another 30yrs or more. When I called Derrick to confirm if its true, apparently he had not heared the news, same for Maureen Odeja. I quickly hung up as i was still trusting it was a wrong message but alas, it was true. Owen had to tell me to call my mum instead of trying to console him that I should console my mum instead. That's how close she was to you and uncle David. Well, you are in a better place now and we cannot question God. Continue to rest in peace mum. Love always from me and my siblings. You will forever be missed

Mummy,that was what i called you because you were a mum in all ramifications to me and a grandmother to my children. I can still remember my first encounter with you almost 30 years ago when i walked into the house . You were so warm ,accommodating, kind and trusting.You were easy to talk to and would always give honest feedback. You always wore a smile that was charming and that made you approachable . You were a source of encouragement and inspiration to me. You bowed out too soon, when we least expected it . The news of your passing came as a rude shock. You will sorely missed!

Dear Aunty Pat, to have to write this makes this unreal situation so real. We somehow believe our loved ones will be here with us forever but sadly it is not so,we will understand it better by and by. Aunty you were truly exceptional, a big inspiration to me, I know that your legacy will never ever be forgotten because of all the lives you touched, Indeed a life well spent. May your gentle soul continue to rest in the bossom of the Lord till the day of resurrection In Jesus name. Amen

Dear Aunty, can't forget your smile, always happy, Never a dull moment with you, I remember those Nice childhood memories. My mum was always happy been with you. You stood by us during her funeral from the beginning to the end, you even gave us your large industrial pots to use on that day when the caterers didn't show up with theirs. Thanks for that love& gratitude. Continue to rest in peace at the blossom of our Lord Jesus Christ!!
