Dear Grandma,

Your life was filled with thoughtful deeds - such as the time you helped me buy African clothing that was tailored with love. I still wear the set to this day, and I am thankful for the time we spent together when we visited you and Grandpa.

Grandma rest well, I’ll miss you,

Dear Grandma,

Thank you for your caring heart and thoughtfulness.
I will always remember you and appreciate you for always taking interest in the things I do.

I remember when you bought me drums; you took the time to send someone to Onitsha market to buy the finest drum they could find. I returned to America proud of my drum and more so proud that you were my Grandma.

You always encouraged me to pursue my passions at an early age. I recall how you were always pleased to hear me play my drums on the phone.
I will miss you.

Rest in peace Grandma,

MAMA ADA,
Adasco’s Mum and by inference- my Mum too as we are sisters in spirit and in truth.
We talked about you like 3 days prior as I wanted more copies of the prayer book you published which I treasure so much. Ada mentioned that you were under the weather but we didn’t dwell on it as I suppose we expected it to blow over. This was not to be, as God in His infinite wisdom called you home leaving us with sweet memories of our elegant, strong , amazing Mum. I will remember you every time I read your prayer book, wear the beautiful Akwa Ochas you designed and can not but mention - read a funny WHATSAPP advise!
I ask the Good Lord to grant your beautiful beautiful soul eternal rest - YOUR MEMORIES LIVE ON IN ALL OUR HEARTS.

My dearest Mummy and most trusted Friend,
I love you.
Mummy, it's hard to believe. But you taught me to have faith in Jesus Christ and that is what is keeping me.
Where do I begin? You were my first and most respected teacher - teaching me the foundations and principles of faith in Jesus Christ in words and indeed until I could make that faith my own. You showed me enough reason that I was able to believe - I owe you much.

You loved me and supported me as well as all the people within your circle of influence. I miss you and it is comforting to hear the encouraging words of those lives you touched. You gave sacrificially.

Ezinne, there is much to say. You are a teacher par excellence. You taught me to forgive and not to keep a record of "wrongs". Yours was a life worthy of emulation. My children are blessed if I can be to them the Mother you were to me and my siblings.

Mummy, you taught me to support my community as well as those around me - I remember the early days of being part of the Church cleaning crew at Agbor - you fostered an early interest in volunteerism -giving without counting the cost. What a beautiful mother you are!!! God gave me the best, and I give God all the glory and thanks, in Jesus Christ name, Amen.

My darling Mummy, you exhibited remarkable modesty and decorum and tried to teach me that - but I was slow in learning it. Yet God used you to cover my shortcomings. You did well - God will teach me the rest now.

You filled our lives with musical joy, smiles and wonderful memories - whether from baking cakes and pastries, spending unhurried time with us at Ogwushi-uku library (fostering a love for learning), bathing grandchildren, etc, you gave your best and your best was excellent. My children remember you as the "Grandma, that prays". Thank you for every word of blessing you pronounced on them. Thank you, Mummy.

Mummy, I have wondered how those last moments on April 26, 2021 ended for you on earth. You were an organized person and knew the projects you needed to do for each day, while maintaining flexibility. It is well. Very sad that I cannot hear your voice audibly in this part of eternity.

Rest Well, Mummy, Rest well until that day when we meet again at the feet of Jesus Christ. Kachifo.

We the Chukwuma's family are very grateful to you for giving us such a wonderful daughter.  Your legacy will live on and you will surely be missed. Rest in peace.

In Loving Memory of a woman with a heart of gold-Mother Theresa of our time

Shared by IJEOMA ESOGWA on May 9, 2021
  • Dear grandmother Omoko, the news of your demise was one of the rudest shocks I have ever had. However, I was consoled knowing that you're the latest handmaid of Mother Mary in heaven. 
  • Grandmother Omoko, your humility is inspirational. You were such a kind woman who never gave in small measure. Permit me to take you down memory lane grandmother. When I was preparing to get married 13 years ago,  you took time to educate me on sex selection of our children. You gave me a book on family planning and by the grace of God the use of that book made all the difference. 
  • When I had my first son, you brought me the biggest fish I have ever seen live. You never stopped advising me. It didn't matter where we met. You always dropped a word of advice for me to be a good wife and mother. I can hear your soft spoken voice(smiles)
  • I thank God for giving my family and I the opportunity  to visit you on grandfather Omoko's birthday 2020. We came with neither silver nor gold, not even a bronze, but our hearts were filled with joy fulfilling a long time desire. 
  • Dearest Grandmother Omoko, I and my family pray that God will continue to grant your loving heart eternal rest and let His perpetual light shine upon you through Christ our Lord Amen. Good night Ma as you continue to enjoy heavenly bliss. Adiu

TRIBUTE TO MY BELOVED MUMMY MUMMY!

Shared by ADA OKWUOBI on May 9, 2021

From: Dcns Kaidi L. Okafo-Emedo.

My beloved Aunty and Mummy, Mummy, you loved me unconditionally. Family meant so much to you and whenever we had the opportunity to speak, you made sure I realized how close you were to my late Dad. You showed me love and drew me close to Idumugbe branch of my the family. 

You taught me how to honour them in any event, you were most especially there to guide me during my late sister's death. You led me step by step through the hurdles. I could not believe the running around you did on my behalf, oh Mummy Mummy, you were really so unwavering in your support. You brushed off my numerous 'thank you ma' letting me know that it was your responsibility. You taught me the true meaning of humility with dignity!

My elegant Mummy Mummy and beloved Akudi ka, I still have my Orange Akwa ocha set. You brought them over for me from my cousin's wedding, even though I was unable to attend. You made sure I part took of the family Aso ebi, Nne m, dalu. You have always been there for me and with the wisdom you were instilling from behind, people just assumed that I knew so much more about our culture and traditions! I just walked tall and smiled. Nne m, oma, dalu ma. 

I recall your stories of your close relationship and escapades with my Dad, to really express how close you both were, I just smiled as my Dad always did the very same. He so loved his maternal family and there was never a doubt about that. Our branch of the Okafos in Umuekwo, (where you incidentally came to marry) has always been known as Umu 'Okafo Isiego' in honour of the Matriarch of the family 'Isiego Ononye'!! You endeavored to teach me how to relate with my Idumugbe branch of the family. The appropriate ways of greetings and their songs! Mummy Mummy, I shall miss you dearly.

No matter the time I reached out to you, you were never one to reprimand me of the time lapse since our last chat. This is truly unconditional love. Your arms were always wide open to receive us. Dalu ma. 

My late sister, Lady M, felt you loved her best, how you were always around to check on her, get her alkaline water, etc, I usually smiled saying that I am your favourite. The fact is, you had a way of making each one feel so special.

Just thinking that so many of you have gone ahead, you must all be having a special family meeting in a corner of Heaven, keep remembering us ever so fondly as I know you look down through the Heavenly portals to check on us. I realize that death is deadly but your soul is immortal and your memory remains Evergreen.

I will carry you lovingly in my heart my darling Mummy Mummy always and forever. Until we meet again in that Glorious Kingdom, Adieu beloved Mummy Mummy!

Adieu till we meet again!
