Heeeh! Buchi! Are you really gone? Why too soon?. Still can’t get myself together to accept that you are no more...... it leaves me really reflecting on how horrible this life could really be. You were a loving sister I do cherish and a great aunt to my kids. God remains God and in all the pains, I thank God you are resting in his bosom. Rest in peace, Buchi.

Buchi, its painful to lose you at so young an age! Though our contact was brief some years back, you came accross as an amiable woman who loved her husband dearly. Our prayers go to your husband, Dr. Maduagu and the children you left so soon. May God almighty comfort and grant them strength to bear the pains of your departure.

Bauchi, good night rest on the blossom of the Lord.

Buchi m! I still can’t believe you are gone. You welcomed me and my family to Tampa. I was amazed as to how quickly we bonded. I felt like I had known you all my life. You had such a positive attitude, always cheerful with a beautiful laughter. You lived a remarkable life. Your sudden exit is devastating. I will forever cherish our memories. 

Till we meet again sis.

   A TRIBUTE TO A FORMER COURSEMATE

'Thou know'st 'tis common;that all that lives must die,passing through nature to eternity-William Shakespeare'.

Buchi,as you were fondly called,your demise came as a rude shock,not only to me but to all the graduates of Sociology/Anthropology set of 2001.

The time we spent together at the Imo State University Owerri Nigeria,revealed your personality;you were intelligent,sociable and full of life.

You believed in God and truly served Him and all your remarkable foot prints are there for everyone to see.

Buchi,though you have taken your own share of passing through nature to eternity as posited by Shakespeare,in our hearts,you'll always be.

May your family especially your loving husband,children and mother whom you left behind be consoled by the fact that you are now sitted at the right hand of the Almighty God.

Adieu,

Onyebuchi Vivian Maduagwu
      (Nee Ijeomah),

May your beautiful soul rest in the bossom of our Almighty God..Amen.

Death where are thou stings?

Lady Buchi, your death came to me as a shock.

I pray for the repose of your gentle soul madam.

I recall my visit to the family at Tampa Florida in 2007, you, children and Dr. were very accommodating for the first time of knowing me like as if have been part of the family for ages!

I wish your gentle soul reposed with your Lord in high heaven in jesus precious name.

May God strengthen my friend, the children, the entire Maduagwus and others you left behind to bear your valued demise.

Madam Buchi Maduagwu adieu!

Rest peacefully.

When Dr. Oduenyi Maduagwu, your husband informed us about your health challenges, we started praying fervently as a family for your quick recovery. We believed that you will surely recover because we know that with God, nothing is impossible. Indeed, anything God cannot do, does not exist. Hence when the news of your passing came to me in the morning of 6th April, 2021, it hit me like a thunderbolt. I could not hold my tears. Your death left a big hole in my heart. We loved you and appreciated your contributions to the family. My wife Julie and daughter Sandra are yet to come to terms that you are no more. You took care of them for more than six months when Sandra came to Tampa, Florida for her second baby. You took her like your younger sister and her children like your own biological children.
You faced your health challenge with courage. I saw that in the selfie you sent to your husband two hours before your passing. This gives me the assurance that you are in a better place where there is no pain and no sorrow. You are surely an Angel now, walking with other Angels in Jesus’ loving care. Shame to Satan.
Death is the necessary end. It is the path of every human being on earth.
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble – Proverbs 4:18-19
We take consolation that Buchi was indeed a shining light which shone brighter and brighter unto the perfect day into eternity.
The memory of Buchi will be a Blessing
But the name of the wicked will rot – Proverbs10:7
Sleep on our ever smiling Buchi
Jee ije yi nke oma.
May God be with you till we meet again.
Good night.

Your Brother-in-law

Rest dearly beloved!!!

What indeed do I say but that to live in the hearts of those who love you is not to die. Onyebuchi you came, you saw and you conquered. But you are gone too soon!!!

We,  of the Busayo Adeniyi family, are distraught. Our hearts are broken but we take solace in God, our maker and redeemer. You have gone to a better place.

We thank God for the time God gave us together. Your laughter still rings in our home when we call. Across the seas from Lagos, Nigeria to Tampa Florida USA , there was no distance as we chat away with smiles and laughter even few days to your passage. Onyebuchi, you brought laughter to our home, faces and hearts.

To God be the glory for the happy times howbeit short. Any time I visit US, you made me feel welcome as a sister not an in law. There are memories that even death in its venom cannot take away. Sleep on beloved.

Onyebuchi you fought the good fight of faith gracefully and now you have to rest until resurrection morning when we would meet to part no more.
Posted by Maxwell Ijomah on April 20, 2021
Buchi, where are you going to? How can you go leaving me, mama, brothers and sister? It is unbelievable. Oh Death what have you done to us. We stand motionless, consumed in grief.
Sorrow has arrived, with smiles thief.
My one and loving sister, you truly gave me the best of everything. I was truly lucky to have a sister like you. I will miss our talks and your comforting voice. True, if there is a rebirth in life, I would very humbly beg to the Almighty to make me my adorable sister’s most beloved sister.
It hurts like crazy; my heart is torn into million pieces but who are we to question God, your maker, whom it pleased to call you back home at this time. I will miss you in more ways than I can ever imagine but I am consoled knowing that you are in a peaceful and better place.
Adieu BUBU, till we meet to part no more.

A TRIBUTE TO MY BELOVED SISTER ONYEBUCHI VIVIAN MADUAGWU
Time it is said heals the wounds that we suffer in this long journey of life on earth. True! But Time cannot erase from our minds the legacy of memories a loved person leaves in our minds, especially if those memories are something we cherish and yearn for more.
My sister, woman of God, why did you go so early, why did you leave. We had plans to execute together, why did you choose to abandon them? I want to know what crossed your mind, unspoken words you’ve left behind, undone things we’ll never do.
Our hearts are damaged, and scarred severely. Indeed, your demise was shocking and brought deep, excruciating pain to our hearts. A taste of sorrow we have been fed. It really is like a hole in our lives. One swiftly dug but carved out by knives. We shall miss you, much more than dearly.
But I have hope that those sleeping will rise. The Bible says that God will open their eyes.
No suffering, sickness, yes not even pain, those who did good, eternal life they’ll gain. So… sleep on my sister, sleep tight. For now, with you the sky is night. But after night will come daybreak. Therefore, I will wait hoping to see you awake.

Adieu my beloved sister
Dr. Maxwell Azubuike Ijomah

Your departure is unbearable pain. Forever Nursing wound while we are still here.
But the joy is that. We will see you again, In that glorious mansion our Lord Jesus Christ prepared for those still standing in Him.
May the Great Comforter, comfort the family and the church of God.

In Loving Memories
My dear God Daughter Vivian, the news of your death broke our hearts. Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond word and missed beyond measures….. My comfort is in the fact that you loved God and served in his vineyard. Buchi we love you but God loves you most. Rest on my dear Buchi till we meet again on the resurrection day. 

Goodnight Buchi
Mrs. Stella Onyemize.

My forever friend. Your smile could light up very dark places. You were my prayer partner and prayer warrior on a very demanding job. We broke all the rules when it came to separation of church and state.......We went from coworkers to extended family. Some days we wouldn't have made it without your constant prayers and reminders to keep the Faith....I can hear your voice singing and that laughing all over the office............you would get me together really quick..........all the lunches and conversations about our babies will never be forgotten. A lifetime of memories for such a small time together. Your missionary work was unbelievable. You invited me to church and bible study DAILY.......I never made it. Let your voice sing on my sister!
Love you forever,

Buchi Lives on
Buchi has gone like a candle in the wind and that's what man's life consists. No one lives on earth forever. Buchi, your journey on earth and most especially with the Maduagwus family might be short but one good thing still remains and that is the foot prints you left behind will ever remain in our memories; your radiant smile, your large heart, - always thinking of what you'll give Aunty Nwaife, your services in the things of God and many more. Buchi, i want you to know that we love you but God loves you more and He has prepared a better place for you, incomparable to all the troubles encountered on earth.
Your passage might be so painful, but we take solace in the All knowing God. Live on Buchi until that glorious morning. 1 Thesalonian 4 vs. 13 - 18

I am still numb and greatly shocked that you have passed unto glory.

I strongly believed that you will make it and live long to see your children's children , as we were all praying for your quick recovery.

We cannot question God, He is all-knowing. Isaiah 57:1 is my consolation.

I will surely miss your calls on my birthdays, as your custom, with your bubbly greetings whilst wishing me well.

Adieu Buchi, till we meet on the resurrection morning!!!

SO HARD BUT GOOD BYE BUCHI✝️✝️✝️
The news of your death was not only a shock, it tore my heart into shreds. I cried uncontrollably for days and couldn't stop wishing to wake up from this horrible dream, but each passing day brings the reality closer and closer.
Buchi, my flash back to our days in college could only reveal a unique bubbly woman with charming smiles and love across the isles. You were blessed with an enviable attitude that endeared you to the hearts of everyone in the very large sociology class of 2000/2001 and the entire social science faculty. You were never met sad nor ever disagreed with anybody in our class.
Since we all reunited in US, you have also kept contact, calling and checking on everyone as time permits, and continued to radiate love and inject energy into our class forum.
'Obinnaa nwainem', a phrase you have been using to address me from our freshers year in IMSU has continued to ring in my ears. It's a testament of who you are.... I heard it last a couple of months back when you called to check on us regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Little did I know it would be our last chat.
Our heart is bleeding, all your friends and course mates are wailing uncontrollably. Your family is broken but I'm sure the heaven gained another angel.
This world is not just good enough for you, go and enjoy your crown of glory. No more pains, no more sorrow....
You will forever live in our hearts.
Adieu my sister, friend and course mate till we meet again ✝️✝️✝️

"O death, where is thy sting?"
"O grave, where is thy victory?" - 1 Cor 15:55
"Death has been swallowed up in victory"-1 Cor 15:54.
You can only take the body but cannot take the soul, for the soul belongs to God.
Buchi, even in death you are victorious.
The ever smiling, cheerful and happy Buchi, rest on until the resurrection day. A dieu Buchi.

Our ebullient and delectable, sister in-law has been snatched by the cold hands of death. What a rude shock. Your husband had promised coming to Enugu next time you come to Nigeria. We looked forward to that visit. But alas, it will no longer come to be. We are grieving.
We thank God you touched lives in your special way within the short span of life you lived.
Buchi, we will all miss you. We are consoled by fact that we shall still see on Ressurection day.
Farewell our lovely sister in-law.
Rest in the bossom of the Lord

Toks and Ifeanyi Nwokeoma Maduagwu.
